Thursday 8 - Friday 9 November 2007, Birkbeck, University of London.

Museums, galleries, archives, libraries and media
organisations such as publishers and film and
broadcast companies, have traditionally mediated
and controlled access to cultural resources and
knowledge. What is the future of such =91top-down'
institutions in the age of =91bottom-up' access to
knowledge and cultural artifacts through Web 2:0
technologies. Will such institutions respond to
this threat to their cultural hegemony by
resistance or adaptation? How can a museum or a
gallery or, for that matter, a broadcasting
company, appeal to an audience which has
unprecedented access to cultural resources? How
can institutions predicated on a cultural economy
of scarcity compete in an emerging state of
cultural abundance? The twenty-third CHArt
conference will reflect upon these issues.

         Subject: Call For Participation: 3rd
International Workshop on Vocabularies, Ontologies and Rules for the Enterprise

                     Call for Participation

                  3rd International Workshop on

        Vocabularies, Ontologies and Rules for The Enterprise
                           (VORTE 2007)

             Annapolis, Maryland, USA, October 15, 2007

The goal of the workshop is to discuss the role
that foundational and domain ontologies play in
the conceptual development and implementation of
next generation tools for enterprise computing.
The VORTE workshop covers research topics
relevant to description formalisms for enterprise
application architectures, services, content, and
regulations. Since enterprise vocabularies and
ontologies, as well as business rules do not
exist in isolation but serve to support business
processes, this year a special emphasis is on
business process modelling and management.
Fundamental research aspect covered by the
workshop includes ontological evaluation of
enterprise systems and their interoperability,
and ontological analysis of business process
modelling. Applied research aspect includes
enhancing business rule engines and business
process management systems by ontologies. In the
area of modelling, our topics include how process
modelling and execution languages, such as
Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) and
Business Process Execution Language (BPEL),
relate to business ontologies. The workshop also
covers ontology-based service description
technologies for inter-enterprise collaboration
like extensions to UDDI or OWL-S.

This definitely promises a lot of fun, and we are
looking forward to meeting you in Annapolis.
