Organized as part of the 8th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems (FOIS2014) http://fois2014.inf.ufes.br/p/home.html
Information artifacts such as photographs, newspaper articles, books, entries in databases, computer programs, emails, video clips are entities which can be used in a variety of ways that depend on their being about something (having a topic or content or subject-matter). Information artifacts also have a variety of further attributes, including format, purpose, evidence, provenance, operational relevance, security markings. Data concerning such attributes (often called ‘metadata’) are vital to the effective exploitation of the reports, images, or signals documents for purposes of discovery and analysis.
Various attempts have been made to create controlled vocabularies for the consistent formulation of such metadata in order to enhance the degree to which the content formulated with their aid will be available to computational reasoning. The goal of this workshop is to advance work on resources of this sort, with a view towards coordination and convergence.
Interested participants can submit:
* A full paper (5-6 pages) that addresses foundational issues
* A one-page progress report summarizing existing initiatives
* A one-page proposal for a tutorial session
Deadline for submissions: May 22, 2014
Deadline for notification of acceptance: June 15, 2014
Deadline for camera-ready copy: August 15, 2014
* Mauricio B. Almeida (Minas Gerais)
