Subject: Re: [regrep] CFP for Workshop on Semantic Web Enabled Software Engineering


Great news and fabulous initiative - kudos to NIST for facilitating this.

I like the joint paper we did here with Professor Asuman Dogac.

That would be a definate submission (subject to approval on rights, et al)
- and then possibly some other joint papers - I'd be interested in
on further topics relating to our OASIS work here.

My sense here is that joint work would serve better than individual items,
I suspect there will be a large number of entries.

Thanks, DW

> * 6th November 2005 *

> * *
> * (Note - extended versions of the best papers to be published in *

> Workshop Description
>   Over the past five years there have been attempts to bring together
>   languages and tools developed for Software Engineering (SE) with
>   Web (SW) languages. One of the most recent of these attempts is the
>   development of the Object Management Group's Ontology Definition
>   Metamodel (ODM). Until recently, this work has been motivated
>   largely by an interest to exploit the popularity and features of
>   Unified Modeling Language (UML) tools for the creation of
>   vocabularies and ontologies for the Semantic Web.  But what are the
>   potential benefits related to the reversal of this approach and the
>   use of Semantic Web concepts in the field of Software Engineering?
>   Could the Web-based, semantically rich formality of the Web Ontology
>   Language OWL be combined with emerging model driven development
>   tools to provide badly needed improvements in both the process and
>   product of software development activities?  Certainly there appear
>   to be a number of strong arguments in favour of this approach, but
>   consensus on the best way forward has not yet formed. This workshop
>   seeks to explore and evaluate this area.
> Intended Audience
>   While the intended audience for this workshop includes those with
>   experience or interest in Semantic Web languages and tools, it is
>   also crucial to have participation by those with expertise in other
>   areas such as Software Engineering, Automatic Software Engineering
>   (ASE), Knowledge Based Software Engineering (KBSE), UML/MDA, and
>   Software/legacy Modernization.
> Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
>  * Visions for Semantic Web driven software engineering.
>  * Tools developed or being developed for software engineering using SW
>    languages,
>  * Integration or application development projects combining software
>    Engineering techniques and Semantic Web tools or languages,
>  * Lessons learned in ASE or KBSE applicable to SW based SE,
>  * Shortcomings with the Semantic Web with respect to Software
>  * Deficiencies in the ODM
>  * Visions for SW driven software modernization
>  * Integration of UML and Semantic Web languages
>  * Integration of formal methods and Semantic Web languages
>  * Software specification and Semantic Web languages
>  * Component discovery and ontologies
>  * Feature modelling and ontologies
>  * Ontology reasoning for software engineering
>  * Semantic annotations in software engineering
> Workshop Format and Attendance
>  This will be an all day workshop with invited speakers, a
>  poster session, technical talks, and panels discussing competing
>  visions for Semantic Web enabled software engineering (final format
>  will be dependent on submissions).  A working session will follow, to
>  form and document a sense of the workshop on the following question:
>    Are the conditions right for a major advancement in software
>    engineering tools and practice through the incorporation of
>    Semantic Web languages and tools?
>  Invited speakers so far include:
>   Dr. Rudi Studer from AIFB University of Karlruhe for a SW
>    perspective, and
>   Grady Booch from IBM (by remote webcast) for a modeling perspective.
>  This workshop is open to all members of the ISWC community, as well
>  as other communities identified in the Intended Audience discsussion
>  Submission of a paper is not required for attendance at the workshop.
>  However, in the event that the workshop cannot accommodate all who
>  would like to participate, those who have submitted a paper will be
>  given priority for registration.  All workshop attendees must pay the
>  ISWC2005 workshop registration fee, as well as the conference
>  registration fee.  We encourage those who plan to attend this
>  workshop, to register early in order to help conference organizers
>  with their planning as well as insure that the workshop is not
>  cancelled do to projected poor attendance.
