BOG: BadOntoloGy

2nd International Workshop on Bad Or Good Ontology, part of the Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO 2019), held between September 23-25, 2019, in Graz, Austria

Submission deadline: May 31, 2019

As ontologies are used in more domains and applications and as they grow in size, the consequences of bad ontology design become more critical. Bad ontologies may be inconsistent, have unwanted consequences, be ridden with anti-patterns, or simply be incomprehensible. In general, bad ontologies present design mistakes that make their use and maintenance problematic or impossible.

Programmers have had access to various tools, such as debuggers or linters, to help identify stylistic errors, suspicious constructs, or logical errors, to avoid bad program design. Similar methods and tools are needed for ontology engineering.

This workshop aims to bring together research on all aspects to bad or good ontology design, including use cases and systematic reviews of bad or good ontology design, techniques and tools for diagnosing, explaining, and repairing bad ontologies, and approaches or benchmarks for evaluating such techniques.

We welcome original contributions about all topics related to bad or good ontologies, including but not limited to:
- systematic analysis of ontologies for symptoms of bad ontology design
- cataloguing of symptoms of bad ontology design
- methods for detecting or explaining symptoms
- metrics and methods to gauge ontology quality
- design methods that likely result in bad ontologies
- principled methods to avoid building bad ontologies
- benchmarks of bad or good ontologies for evaluating diagnostic and repairing methods.
