TL;DR: It is argued that good workflow design is a prerequisite for repairing a workflow, or redesigning an equivalent workflow pattern with new components, and the semantic tooling that is being developed in the Workflow4Ever project to support these best practices are presented.
Abstract: In this position paper we present a set of best practices for workflow design to prevent workflow decay and increase reuse and re-purposing of scientific workflows. MyExperiment provides access to a large number of scientific workflows. However, scientists find it difficult to reuse or re-purpose these workflows for mainly two reasons: workflows suffer from decay over time and lack sufficient metadata to understand their purpose. We argue that good workflow design is a prerequisite for repairing a workflow, or redesigning an equivalent workflow pattern with new components. We present a set of best practices for workflow design and the semantic tooling that is being developed in the Workflow4Ever (Wf4Ever) project to support these best practices.

TL;DR: A much improved version of LogMap, a highly scalable ontology matching system with 'built-in' reasoning and diagnosis capabilities, and provides the necessary infrastructure for domain experts to interactively contribute to the matching process.
Abstract: In this paper we present a much improved version of LogMap, a highly scalable ontology matching system with 'built-in' reasoning and diagnosis capabilities. LogMap 2.0 is not only more scalable and robust than its predecessor, but it also provides the necessary infrastructure for domain experts to interactively contribute to the matching process.

TL;DR: A demo of the capabilities of DOG4DAG, the Dresden Ontology Generator for Directed Acyclic Graphs, which is available as plugin to both OBO-Edit and Protégé, and summarise the strengths and limits of the different the steps of the generation process.
Abstract: In the biomedical domain, Protege and OBO-Edit are the main ontology editors supporting the manual construction of ontologies. Since manual creation is a laborious and hence costly process, there have been efforts to automate parts of this process. Here, we give a demo of the capabilities of DOG4DAG, the Dresden Ontology Generator for Directed Acyclic Graphs, which is available as plugin to both OBO-Edit and Protege. In the demo, we describe how to generate terms and in particular siblings, definitions, and is-a relationships using an example in the domain of nervous system diseases. We summarise the strengths and limits of the different the steps of the generation process.

Abstract: We present Populous, a tool for gathering content with which to populate anontology. Domain experts need to add content, that is often repetitive in itsform, but without having to tackle the underlying ontological representation.Populous presents users with a table based form in which columns areconstrained to take values from particular ontologies; the user can select aconcept from an ontology via its meaningful label to give a value for a givenentity attribute. Populated tables are mapped to patterns that can then be usedto automatically generate the ontology's content. Populous's contribution is inthe knowledge gathering stage of ontology development. It separates knowledgegathering from the conceptualisation and also separates the user from thestandard ontology authoring environments. As a result, Populous can allowknowledge to be gathered in a straight-forward manner that can then be used todo mass production of ontology content.

Abstract: Representations of domain knowledge range from those that are ontologically formal, semantically rich to those that are ontologi- cally informal and semantically weak. Representations of knowledge are important in many tasks, one of which is the support of travel around information spaces through the identification and linking of concepts in a field. In this paper we explore how representations of ontologically in- formal, semantically weak domain knowledge as captured by the Simple Knowledge Organisation System (SKOS) can enable a system to take advantage of the large number of existing ontological representations to support semantic linking of Web based information and thus facilitate information travel.
