Website: OWLED DC 2008
When: April 1-2 2008
Where: Washington, D.C.
The fourth workshop in the The OWL: Experiences and Direction (OWLED) workshop series will again bring users, implementors and researchers together in order to measure the current state of need against the state of the art and to set an agenda for language evolutions that satisfy users. This OWLED workshop will last two days and will be held in the Washington, D.C., area, in the first week of April 2008. The workshop will concentrate on issues related to the development and W3C standardization of OWL 1.1, but other issues related to OWL are also of interest, particularly those related to the task forces set up at OWLED 2007.

As an "interim" workshop, the workshop will be more open and unconstrained than recent OWLED workshops. The workshop will have two very different kinds of activities. There will be formal presentation of submissions to the workshop. There will also be time devoted to self-organizing groups discussing topics related to submissions to the workshop and possibly other topics related to OWL.

Making this self-organization work will require effort on the part of the attendees. Workshop attendees should read submissions accepted at the workshop before the workshop starts so that they can contribute to the discussions at the workshop. Attendees should also prepare single "slides" that can be presented during these discussions.

The workshop papers are available from CEUR, as http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-496.
