Special Call of the Semantic Web journal for
ONTOLOGY DESIGN PATTERN DESCRIPTIONS
An ontology design pattern is a reusable solution to a recurring
ontology modeling problem. Different kinds of ontology design patterns
have been identified, and they are used for different purposes ranging
from their use as building blocks and strategies for ontology creation
to their utilization for heterogneity preservation in information
The Semantic Web journal calls for papers containing concise
descriptions of an Ontology Design Pattern. Papers are typically
expected to include discussions of at least the following aspects.
* A general introduction concerning the rationale of making the pattern.
* A graphical depiction of the pattern accompanied by an
explanation, in intuitive terms, of the design choices made.
* A detailed axiomatization, e.g. using OWL, for the relationships
between the vocabulary terms used in the patterns.
* A detailed discussion of related patterns or ontology modeling
practices and their relationships with the presented pattern.
* A convincing discussion of use cases.
* Examples for existing datasets which can be used with the pattern.
Papers will be evaluated along the following dimensions: Quality of the
pattern, usefulness (or potential usefulness) of the pattern, clarity
and completeness of the descriptions.
Prospective authors must take notice of the submission guidelines posted
Paper submission: June 15, 2014
Notification: Usually within 8 weeks of submission
Members of the Guest Editorial Board will be invited as papers are
