                             CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
                     2nd OWL Reasoner Evaluation Workshop (ORE 2013)
                        Collocated with DL 2013 Workshop
                July 22nd in Ulm, Germany


The goal of this workshop is to bring together both the DEVELOPERS and
END-USERS 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
systems and get feedback from end-users and real uses-cases.


Registration for the Description Logic workshop is now open, and the same
registration system is used to register for the OWL Reasoner Evaluation
workshop. To register for ORE (or both DL and ORE):

    Visit https://www.conftool.net/dl2013/ and sign up for an account.
    Continue to the registration page  “Step 2 of 4: Event and Item
Selection” and select the appropriate checkboxes.
    Complete the registration and payment.

The registration fees for the ORE workshop day on the 22nd July are as

    Early (before June 25th): 50 EUR regular / 30 EUR students
    Late (on or after 25th June): 70 EUR regular / 50 EUR students

Registration fees include coffee breaks and lunch.
If you would like to additionally register for the DL workshop, the early
fees are 250 EUR regular / 150 EUR students, late fees 300 EUR regular /
200 EUR students. DL also has a limited number of student grants available

ORE 2013 will be held at the University of Ulm, Germany. Information about
travel to Ulm can be found on the DL workshop site:

We're looking forward to seeing you in Ulm!


The call for systems and challenging ontologies is still open: June 27th,

We will use our benchmarking framework (
https://bitbucket.org/spbail/ore-benchmark/overview) to measure the
reasoner performance on various tasks and test sets.

Most of the measurements will be performed before the ORE workshop day.

There will also be a live competition during the DL workshop, and the
trophy-giving will take place during the DL social dinner on the 24th July.

More information about the competition can be found here:


We had some great submissions to ORE 2013 covering a broad range of OWL
