                             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 still open, and the same
registration system is used to register for the OWL Reasoner Evaluation
workshop: https://www.conftool.net/dl2013/

The current registration fees for the ORE workshop on the 22nd July are: 70
EUR regular / 50 EUR students. Registration fees include coffee breaks and

If you would like to additionally register for the DL workshop, the fees
are 300 EUR regular / 200 EUR students.

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 had some great submissions to ORE 2013 covering a broad range of OWL
reasoning related topics – reasoner system descriptions, challenging
ontologies, performance evaluations, OWL reasoners on mobile devices (!),
and reasoner tips&tricks.

We are very pleased to announce that we accepted nearly 20 papers to be
presented at this year's workshop. Furthermore, 14 systems were submitted
to the competition: http://ore2013.cs.manchester.ac.uk/workshop/programme-2/
