Advances in Ontologies:
The use of formal ontologies in
knowledge systems has many advantages. It allows for an unambiguous
specification of the structure of knowledge in a domain, enables
knowledge sharing and, as a result, makes it possible to perform
automated reasoning about ontologies. In recent years there has been
a worldwide increase in the use of ontologies, both in industry and
in research laboratories. There is a growing community of researchers
in the Australasian region working on various aspects of ontologies.
The primary aim of this workshop is to bring together ontology
researchers in the region.
Held in conjunction with the 24th Australasian Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI 2011)
AOW2011 will be held at Murdoch University, South Street campus.
