ODBASE 2017 - The 16th International Conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics

24-25 October 2017, Rhodes, Greece


The conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE'17) provides a forum on the use of ontologies, rules and data semantics in novel applications. Of particular relevance to ODBASE are papers that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as artificial intelligence and Semantic Web, databases, data analytics and machine learning, social networks, distributed and mobile systems, information retrieval, knowledge discovery, and computational linguistics.

This year, we emphasis the special topics of smart data analytics, Corporate Semantic Web, and Pragmatic Web. The Corporate Semantic Web focuses on the application of semantic methods and technologies in corporate environments and enterprise information systems. The Pragmatic Web consists of the tools, practices and theories describing why and how people use information. In contrast to the Syntactic Web and Semantic Web the Pragmatic Web is not only about form or meaning of information, but also about interaction which brings about e.g. understanding or commitments. Under the Pragmatic Web label we subsume both the pragmatics of ontologies (e.g. ontology development in communities) and the ontology of pragmatics (e.g. semantics of communicative action and context). Pragmatic Web technologies include e.g., distributed ontology- and rule-based systems, tools for knowledge interchange and social interaction, semantic agent technologies with communication (e.g. speech acts), coordination, and negotiation protocols. We also encourage the submission of research and practical experience papers concerning software (e.g. scalability) and knowledge engineering issues in semantic ontology and rule management, information/knowledge integration, and extraction, as well as papers that examine the information and knowledge needs of various applications.

ODBASE'17 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners by being part of the Federated conferences Event "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2017 (OnTheMove'17)" that co-locates three conferences: ODBASE'17, C&TC'17 (International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures), and CoopIS'17 (International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems).

ODBASE 2017 will consider two categories of papers: research and experience. Research papers must contain novel, unpublished research results. Experience papers must describe performance or usability of existing real-world systems, empirical studies, business / industry cases with (proven) solutions / systems for applied technological challenges, and concrete results demonstrating real-world importance and impact; preference will be given to papers that describe software products or systems that are in use in the community and/or the industry.


Specific areas of interest to ODBASE'17 include but are not limited to:

Management of Semantically Expressive Information and Knowledge

  • Knowledge representation and semantic knowledge management
  • Semantic data modeling
  • Semantic integration, including transformation rules, ontology matching, merging, etc.
  • Ontology and rule engineering and metadata management
  • Ontology-based data management, linked data management, semantic big data management
  • Governance aspects such as workflows, roles and responsibilities in semantic information and knowledge management

Large Scale and Complex Information Management and Analysis

  • Semantic indexing, search and query answering in large volumes of data
  • Semantic digital curation, semantic annotation, extraction, enrichment, summarization, and integration
  • Semantic (smart/big) data analytics, data mining, and machine learning (incl. semantic deep learning)
  • Semantic social network analysis
  • Semantic information extraction and text mining
  • Semantics in event-driven architectures, streaming analytics, and semantic complex event processing (SCEP)

Applications, Evaluations, and Experiences of applying ontology, rule, and database techniques, standards, and tools including but not limited to the following domains:

  • Semantic technology standards and tools
  • Semantic Web and Linked Data
  • Corporate Semantic Web (CSW)
  • Semantic enterprise information systems and knowledge management
  • Semantic business process management (SBPM) and decision models
  • Semantic Web and the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Crowdsourcing, human computation, and the People Web
  • Pragmatic Web
  • Semantic services and semantic Multi Agent Systems (MAS)
  • Online social networks and social Semantic Web
  • Personalisation and digital content interaction
  • Hypertext, multimedia, and hypermedia
  • Semantic story telling and corporate smart content
  • Ubiquitous and mobile information systems
  • Information/data governance, information assurance, security, compliance
  • Semantic cloud computing, edge computing, fog computing
  • Semantic Web applications and tools for, e.g., biomedical and healthcare domain, eCommerce, eScience, virtual organizations, Industrie 4.0
  • Legal ontologies, rules, and reasoning
  • Distributed ledger / blockchain databases, e.g. for rule-based smart contracts
