Third Workshop on Ontologies and Metamodeling
in Software and Data Engineering (WOMSDE 2008)
(a collocated event with SBES/SBBD 2008)

15th October, 2008 - Campinas (Brazil)



Software and Data Engineering have matured over the years as disciplines
with specific techniques, methods and principles. Formal Ontology is a
cross-disciplinary field concerned with the study of concepts and theories
that can be used for representing shared conceptualizations of specific
domains in reality. Ontological Engineering is a discipline in computer
and information science concerned with the development of techniques,
methods, languages and tools for the systematic construction of concrete
artifacts capturing these representations, i.e., models (e.g., domain
ontologies) and metamodels (e.g., upper-level ontologies). In recent years,
there has been a growing interest in the application of formal ontology
and ontological engineering to the areas of software and data engineering.

WOMSDE 2008 is the third edition of a workshop series that bring together
researchers and practitioners in areas such as formal ontology, conceptual
modeling, software and data engineering, knowledge representation, Semantic
Web, and MDA (Model-Driven Architecture) to discuss the role of upper-level
and domain ontologies in the development of theoretically sound foundations
for software and data engineering methods, models and metamodels, languages,
concepts, principles and environments.

The workshop encourages submissions on the following topics, but not limited to:

* Ontological Foundations for Conceptual Modeling and Metamodeling
* Foundations for the Model-Driven Architecture (MDA)
* Semantic annotations in software and data engineering
* Ontologies and Domain Engineering
* Semantic Software and Data Engineering Tools and Environments
* Ontology-based Knowledge Management in Software and Data Engineering
* Ontologies for the Software Engineering Domain and Sub-Domains (e.g., Software
Quality, Software Process Modeling and Management, Software Maintenance)
* Ontology-Based Reasoning in Software and Data Engineering
* Ontology-Based Reference Models for Software and Data Engineering (e.g., OMG?S
Ontology Definition Metamodel)
* Ontologies and Document Engineering
* Ontologies and Process Modeling (including Software Process and
Business Process Modeling)
* Ontology-Based Collaborative Systems in Software and Data Engineering
* Ontologies and Context-Aware Systems


Submitted papers will be reviewed based on originality, relevance, technical
soundness and presentation. All papers should be submitted electronically using
the JEMS system ( The submitted
papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee.
Technical papers should be submitted according to the SBC format. The papers
should have at least 8 pages and must not exceed 12 pages including all text,
references, appendices, and figures. Submitted papers can be written in
Portuguese, English (preferred) or Spanish and must be in Adobe Portable
Document Format (PDF). Please follow the guidelines established by the Brazilian
Computer Society, available at:
