Subject: CALL 4 PAPERS: Workshop on Regulatory Ontologies

**** Apologies for cross posting,
========CALL FOR PAPERS - Deadline: June 25, 2004===================
                   The 2nd Workshop on
                  Regulatory Ontologies
  WWW: www.starlab.vub.ac.be/staff/mustafa/WORM_2004.htm
 Part of the International Federated Conferences (OTM '04)
      **Proceedings published by Springer LNCS **
          October 25-29 2004 , Larnaca, Cyprus
In many application areas (such as e-commerce, e-governments, content
standardizations, legal information systems etc.), the modeling of
regulatory and legal knowledge is a critical. Modeling and deploying
regulatory knowledge has some specifics that differentiate it out from
other kinds of knowledge modeling: reasoning methods and application
scenarios, the legal weight (/order) of regulations, parsing legal texts
requires special semantic patterns, the sensitivity in cross-boarder
regulations, etc. This workshop aims at bringing together academics,
researchers, professionals and industrial practitioners to discuss issues
involved in modeling regulatory ontologies. Regulatory ontologies
typically involve the description of rules and regulations within the
social world. In particular, we seek original contributions on the
following issues of interest, but not limited to:
-Engineering of regulatory ontologies: conceptual analysis, representation,
 modularization and layering, reusability, evolution and dynamics, etc;
-Multilingual and terminological aspects of regulatory ontologies;
-Models of legal reasoning (from ontological viewpoint): regulatory
 compliance, case-based reasoning, reasoning with uncertainty, etc.
-Sensitivity on and harmonization of regulations;
-Regulatory metadata and content standardization (e.g. legal-XML/LeXML,
-Regulatory ontologies of: property rights, persons and organizations,
 legal procedures, contracts, legal cuasablity, etc;
-Task models for socially regulated activities;
-Experiences with projects and applications involving regulatory
 ontologies in legal knowledge based systems, legal information retrieval,
 e-governments, e-commerce;
-Automated extraction of Information from regulatory documents.
Invited Speaker:
