The International Workshop on Ontology Dynamics (IWOD)

The International Workshop on Ontology Dynamics is organized to bring together researchers interested in the field of ontology dynamics, in order to discuss and analyze important characteristics, open research issues and recent research developments on the field. Topics of interest include advances in the field of ontology evolution, which is the main research area dealing with ontology dynamics, as well as in works that are directly or indirectly related to the problem. Both theoretical research works as well as works describing implemented systems or tools are of interest.
