In addition to the work mentioned in a previous post about ISWC, the LiU Semantic Web research team has also been very active in the Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs) sub-community at ISWC.
On Monday (October 17), Karl Hammar co-arranged the tutorial session Ontology Design Patterns for Linked Data Publishing. The tutorial was very well-received, with over 30 participants learning about ODP theory and practice, and evaluating Karl’s XD for WebProtégé ODP tooling.
On Tuesday (October 18), Karl also co-arranged the 7th Workshop on Ontology and Semantic Web Patterns, at which he also presented two papers: Template-Based Content ODP Instantiation and How to Document Ontology Design Patterns. In total there were twelve presentations given at the workshop, two keynote talks, and a town hall meeting discussing future directions of research and other issues of weight to the ODP community. Approximately 25 people attended the workshop, and the quality of the work presented and of the subsequent discussions was excellent.
