Today IE members Daniel Rodriguez and Salvador Sanchez-Alonso are attending to Ontose 2009, the latest edition of a series of bianual workshops on ontologies for information systems and engineering. Ontose was conceived as a forum promoting challenging discussions and cross-fertilization over multidisciplinary research areas from the ontologies point of view.
This year’s edition has has been organized by the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt (Austria) as part of the 21st International Conference on Advanced Information Systems, CAISE 2009. We have been lucky enough as to count with the presence of Nicola Guarino, one of the key names in the field of ontology in computer science. His keynote on the ontological foundations of Service Science has been not only thought provoking but also very interesting from the point of view of the challenges that the new service-based economy will have to face in the near future.
