The aim of the OWL:Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED) is to
establish an international forum for the OWL community, where
practitioners in industry and academia, tool developers and others
interested in OWL can describe real and potential applications, share
experience and discuss requirements for language
extensions/modifications. The workshops aim at bringing all these
groups together in order to pool their expertise, measure the state of
need against the state of the art, and set an agenda for research and
deployment in order to incorporate OWL-based technologies into new
