The Joint
- 5th International Workshop on Vocabularies, Ontologies and Rules for 
The Enterprise
- International Workshop on Metamodels, Ontologies and Semantic 
Technologies (VORTE-MOST 2010)

Co-located event at the Fourteenth IEEE International EDOC Conference 
(EDOC 2010)

25-29 October 2010, Vitória, ES, Brazil

Ontology is a cross-disciplinary field concerned with the study of 
concepts and theories that can be used for representing shared 
conceptualizations of specific domains. Ontological Engineering is a 
discipline in computer and information science concerned with the 
development of techniques, methods, languages and tools for the 
systematic construction of concrete artifacts capturing these 
representations, i.e., models (e.g., domain ontologies) and metamodels 
(e.g., upper-level ontologies). In recent years, there has been a 
growing interest in diverse areas in computer science such as software 
and data engineering, knowledge representation, natural language 
processing, information science, among many others.
The objective of VORTE-MOST 2010 is to bring together researchers and 
practitioners interested in the relation between ontology and 
information models, and theoretical topics such as formal ontology, 
formal logics, conceptual modelling, enterprise computing, computational 
linguistics, cognitive science, knowledge representation, the Semantic 
Web, and MDE (Model-Driven Engineering), as well as more practical 
topics as a result of applications of ontologies in diverse fields, such 
as knowledge management, informatics for education, ontology-based 
information and database integration, information processing (retrieval, 
classification and extraction), to mention just a few.

VORTE 2010 is the 5th workshop associated with the EDOC conference 
series that intends to bring together researchers and practitioners in 
areas such as philosophical ontology, enterprise modelling, information 
systems, semantic web, model-driven engineering, business rules, and 
business process management. The goal of the workshop is to discuss the 
role that (foundational and domain) ontologies/vocabularies and business 
rules play in the conceptual design and implementation of next 
generation enterprise solutions.
MOST was held for the first time during the 28th International 
Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER’2009) and it was created as the 
unification of two existing workshops: (i) Workshop on Ontologies and 
Applications (WONTO) – organized since 2005 also in three editions, and 
(ii) Workshop on Ontologies and Metamodels in Software and Data 
Engineering (WOMSDE) – organized since 2006 for three consecutive 
editions. VORTE-MOST 2010 can also be seen as a 5th edition of these 
joint scientific fora.


We solicit two types of papers:

• Short papers (4 pages) discussing controversial issues in the field or 
describe interesting or thought-provoking ideas that are not yet fully 
developed; and
• Full papers (8-10 pages) describing more mature results than short papers.

All submissions MUST conform to the two-column format of IEEE Computer 
Society conference proceedings 
(http://www2.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting) and include the 
author's name, affiliation, and contact details. Papers must be 
submitted as PDF files using EasyChair 
athttp://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vorte2010. All submissions 
should be in English.
All papers must not have been previously published or submitted elsewhere.
The papers accepted for the EDOC 2010 Workshops will be published after 
the workshop with an ISBN in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. At least 
one of the authors for each accepted paper must register for the main 
conference (there will be no workshop-only registration at EDOC 2010) 
and present their papers at the workshop. The registration needs to be 
done via the EDOC 2010 website (http://edoc2010.inf.ufes.br/).
The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer 
Society Press and will be accessible through IEEE Xplore and the IEEE 
Computer Society Digital Library. The IEEE reserves the right to exclude 
a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE 
Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the workshop.
Post-conference Journal Publication
We are planning to invite selected papers for publication in a 
well-known international journal. (To be confirmed)
