AOW 2009 is the fifth in a series of workshops on ontologies held
in the Australasian region.

The primary aim of the workshop is to bring together active researchers in
the broad area of ontologies. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited  to:

- Ontology models and theories
- Ontologies and the Semantic Web
- Interoperability in ontologies
- Ontologies and Multi-agent systems
- Description logics for ontologies
- Reasoning with ontologies
- Ontology harvesting on the web
- Ontology of agents and actions
- Ontology visualisation
- Ontology engineering and management
- Ontology-based information extraction  and retrieval
- Ontology merging, alignment and integration
- Web ontology languages
- Formal concept analysis and ontologies
- Ontologies for e-research
- Linking open data
- Significant ontology applications

The proceedings of the four previous workshops were published as
volumes in the Conferences in Research and Practice in
Information Technology (CRPIT) series (http://crpit.com/), and this
will again be the case for AOW 2009. As with the previous
workshops, we are investigating the possibility of extended versions
of  selected papers appearing in a special issue of a suitable journal.

Submission information such as format etc. can be found on the
CRPIT website: http://crpit.com/AuthorsSubmitting.html. The page
limit is 10 pages.

Important Dates:
Paper submission deadline: 25 September 2009
Notification of acceptance/rejection: 23 October 2009
Camera-ready copies due: 13 November 2009

 * Call for Bids to Host the 23-th ESSLLI, 2011 *

The Association for Logic, Language and Computation (FoLLI) and
the ESSLLI Standing Committee invite proposals to host the 23-nd
European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information
(ESSLLI), to be held in August 2011.

 *** The ESSLLI Summer School ***

ESSLLI is a summer school which takes place two weeks in the
summer, every year since 1989. The school hosts approximately 50
courses at both introductory and advanced level, and convokes
around 500 participants each year from all over the world.

The main focus of the program of the summer schools is the
interface between linguistics, logic and computation. Courses,
both introductory and advanced, cover a wide variety of topics
within the combined areas of interest: Language and Computation,
Language and Logic, and Logic and Computation. Workshops are also
organized, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion of
issues at the forefront of research, as well as a series of
invited lectures.

Detailed information about the ESSLLI organization can be found in
the ESSLLI general guide, and the organizing and program committee
guides. The guides can be obtained via the Standing Committee
