                      July 1st, Manchester, UK


OWL is a logic-based ontology language standard designed to promote
interoperability, particularly in
the context of the (Semantic) Web. The standard has encouraged the
development of numerous OWL reasoning
systems, and such systems are already key components of many applications.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together the developers of reasoners
for (subsets of) OWL,
including systems focusing on both intensional (ontology) and extensional
(data) query answering.
The workshop will give developers a perfect opportunity to promote their
