8th International Workshop on Value Modeling and Business Ontology
with a special track on the Pragmatic Web
Berlin, Germany, March 2-3, 2014
The importance of modeling the essence of enterprises on a level that abstracts from operational details is increasingly recognized. Business ontology provides abstract descriptions of enterprises in their business context, focusing on what is needed to create and transfer value. Value modeling is a business modeling approach that focuses on the value objects exchanged in business networks. Business ontology and value modeling research is conducted using instruments such as Business Model Generation, the REA (Resources, Events, Agents) ontology, Enterprise Ontology and the e3-value tool set.
The goal of VMBO is to bring together researchers with an interest in value modeling and business ontology in order to present and discuss the current state of enterprise or business modeling and to identify key areas for further research. This year, VMBO will include a Pragmatic Web track. Under the Pragmatic Web ( label we subsume both the pragmatics of ontologies (e.g. ontology development in communities) and the ontology of pragmatics (e.g. semantics of communicative action and context). Pragmatic web technologies include e.g., rule-based systems and tools for knowledge management and for social web analysis.
If you are interested in joining, please submit a short paper (maximum of five pages) describing your main ideas. We encourage you to focus on ideas in progress for which you would like to get feedback from other workshop participants.
Note that submitted papers will be only evaluated for their potential to enable substantive research discussions. The program committee will use the papers to put together a final program; the aim is to accommodate all relevant papers. If necessary, a selection will be made in such a way that an overall good balance is achieved.
