Ontology is a cross-disciplinary field concerned with the study of concepts and theories that support the building of shared conceptualizations of specific domains. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the application of ontologies to solve modeling and classification problems in diverse areas such as Computer Science, Information Science, Philosophy, Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Knowledge Management and many others.
The Seminar on Ontology Research in Brazil (ONTOBRAS) foresees an opportunity and scientific environment in which researchers and practitioners from Information Sciences and Computer Science can exchange the theories, methodologies, languages, tools and experience related to the ontology development and application. ONTOBRAS is part of a tradition that dates back to 2005 in Brazil and it was defined by Brazilian Ontology Community as the unique highly scientifically qualified forum for presenting and discussing ontologies and their cases of application in Brazil.
Therefore, we provide a non-comprehensive list of areas and researchers communities from which we expect to receive submissions:
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit theoretical, technical and practical research contributions that directly or indirectly address the issues above. Particularly welcome are e-science, life-sciences, e-business, e-government and cultural applications.
This year, Ontobras will have two tracks:
