Meeting Description: 7th International Workshop on Modular Ontologies (WoMO)
Corunna, Spain, September 15, 2013
Held in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning (LPNMR 2013)

Modularity, studied for years in software engineering, allows mechanisms for easy and flexible reuse, generalization, structuring, maintenance, design patterns, and comprehension. In formal and applied ontology, modularity is central to reducing the complexity of designing and understanding ontologies, and to facilitating ontology verification, reasoning, development, maintenance and integration.

Recent research on ontology modularity shows substantial progress in foundations of modularity, techniques of modularization and modular development, distributed reasoning and empirical evaluation. These results provide a solid foundation and exciting prospects for further research and development.

The workshop continues a series of successful events that have been an excellent venue for practitioners and researchers to discuss latest and current work. The most recent WoMOs were held at ESSLLI 2011 and FOIS/ICBO 2012. This time WoMO is organised as a workshop of LPNMR 2013: the 12th International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning. LPNMR is well-established as the main conference in the field.

The workshop will be open to all attendants of LPMNR’13 and its workshops. Workshop speakers will be required to register for WoMO via the LPMNR’13 website. Registration for WoMO only will be possible.

Invited Speakers:

Till Mossakowski, University of Bremen, Germany
Till Mossakowski is extraordinary professor of computer science at the University of Bremen. He is a leading international figure in modular and heterogeneous specification of logical theories and ontologies.

George Vouros, University of Piraeus, Greece
George Vouros is a professor in the Department of Digital Systems at the University of Piraeus. His research work spans from knowledge representation and reasoning, focusing on the engineering, acquisition, evolution, alignment, and coordination of ontologies, to multi-agent systems, focusing on agent organizations and their adaptation, agents’ collaboration and coordination, and architectures of collaborative agents.
