Workshop on Ontology-Driven Applications in Distributed Systems
23–27 June 2008
Held in conjunction with 8th International Conference on New Technologies of Distributed Systems, the OntoAPP workshop recognizes that ontologies are becoming widespread in several disconnected domains. Their use leads to new software architectures, especially in the field of distributed systems. However, it's difficult to measure the impact of their use in distributed environments. Feedback from innovative software driven by ontologies are mandatory for a better comprehension on how ontologies are used in real use cases. OntoAPP is a unique chance for people interested in knowledge-based systems to meet and discuss theoretical aspects as well as applied research.
