Introduction

The Semantic Web Conference ontology (SWC) is an ontology for describing academic conferences. It was initially designed to support the European Semantic Web Conference, ESWC2007, and later extended for both the following conferences in the ESWC series, as well as in the ISWC series. Historically, the SWC ontology also draws heavily on ontologies developed for ESWC2006 and ISWC2006.

SWC is mainly a convention of how to use classes and properties from other ontologies, most prominently FOAF (for people) and SWRC (their BibTeX elements, for the papers). We are also throwing in some SIOC, Dublin Core and iCal/RDF Calendar. Our own swc namespace provides the glue for all this, as well as specialised classes for things that have to do with conferences.

This version of SWC has been slimmed down significantly (hence the revision name). A total of 59 classes and 19 properties have been deprecated (deprecated terms can be found at the bottom of this document). This was mostly done with the intention to remove the countless sub-classes of generic classes such as Chair or SessionEvent, which were deemed to be too specific for a general-purpose conference ontology such as SWC. Elsewhere, classes and properties which had never been used and seemed to fall under the heading of "over-engineering" were removed. Finally, all CfP related terms were removed. Instead, we suggest to use a dedicated ontology such as the CfP ontology.

Describing Papers

For the basic use case of describing papers, the figure below shows how the main kinds of resources are connected: the paper itself, the authors and their affiliations, and the talk where the paper was presented.

The next figure shows in more detail the kinds of things that can be said about each of the four main entities surrounding a paper.

Roles

One of the basic design choices in SWC is to use role modelling for describing the different functions at a conference, such as chairs, reviewers, etc. For any particular role at a given conference, the swc:Role class or a sub-class will be instantiated. This role instance stands in relation to a person (who plays the role) and an event. The figure below gives an example showing how to model the role of the metadata chair (or "dog food tsar") at ISWC+ASWC2007, which was held by Knud Möller (together with Tom Heath, not shown in the figure).

Note that the metadata chair role is not modelled with its own dedicated class (although it could have been). Instead, an instance of the generic Chair class is used and labelled accordingly.

in-range-ofswc:forEvent, swc:isRoleAt, swc:relatedToEvent
statustesting

Academic events are e.g. conferences and conference-like events, and all the sub-events of those which are about the topic or theme of the conference, such as talks or panels.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: AccommodationPlace

LabelAccommodation Place
sub-class-ofgeo:SpatialThing
statustesting

A hotel, hostel, BnB or similar.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: ArgumentativeDocument

LabelArgumentative Document
super-class-ofswc:Paper, swc:Poster, swc:SlideSet
sub-class-offoaf:Document
in-domain-ofswc:relatedToEvent
in-range-ofswc:hasRelatedDocument
statustesting

An argumentative document is a document which uses analytical reasoning and evidence in order to argue for a point of view. Typical examples are scientific papers or political pamphlets. Negative examples are novels or plays (even though a novel might also try to sway the reader to a certain point of view).

According to Text Types, an argumentative document is based "on the evaluation and the subsequent subjective judgement in answer to a problem. It refers to the reasons advanced for or against a matter".

Class: Artefact

LabelArtefact
super-class-ofswc:Paper, swc:Poster, swc:Proceedings, swc:Programme, swc:SlideSet
sub-class-ofwordnet:Document
in-domain-ofswc:biblioReference, swc:relatedToEvent
in-range-ofswc:hasRelatedArtefact

Class: Chair

LabelChair
sub-class-ofswc:Role
statustesting

A sub-class of Role for various kinds of chair functions. Examples are the main chair of a conference, the tutorials chair, the proceedings chair, etc. Instead of introducing a large amount of sub-classes of Chair, we suggest to model all the different chair functions as instances of Chair with appropriate labels.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: ConferenceVenuePlace

LabelConference Venue Place

Class: Poster

LabelPoster
sub-class-ofswc:ArgumentativeDocument, swc:Artefact
statustesting

A scientific poster at a conference or workshop.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: Presenter

LabelPresenter
sub-class-ofswc:Role
statustesting

A presenter is someone who presents matter in front of an audience. Examples of events to which this role applies are paper presentations, tutorials, or talks. A keynote speaker could also be modelled as an instance of this class.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: Proceedings

LabelProceedings
super-class-ofbibtex:Proceedings
sub-class-offoaf:Document, swc:Artefact
statustesting

The proceedings of a conference or workshop, which contain the papers presented there.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: Programme

LabelProgramme
sub-class-offoaf:Document, swc:Artefact
in-range-ofswc:hasProgramme
statustesting

A document containing the programme of an event such as a conference or workshop. Typically, the programme would list the times and dates for the individual sub-events, e.g., talks, dinners, panel discussions, etc.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: ProgrammeCommitteeMember

LabelProgramme Committee Member
sub-class-ofswc:Role
statustesting

This role is played by the members of the programme committee of a conference or conference-like event. We found this role to be so significant that it justifies to be represented by its own class.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: Role

LabelRole
super-class-ofswc:Chair, swc:Delegate, swc:Presenter, swc:ProgrammeCommitteeMember
sub-class-ofwordnet:Role-1
in-domain-ofswc:heldBy, swc:isRoleAt
in-range-ofswc:hasRole, swc:holdsRole
statustesting

Role is the super-class of all the different roles performed at a conference or workshop. Examples are the various conference chairs, the delegates, presenters, PC members, etc. The intended use of this class is that an instance of Role will be related to the event at which it is performed, and to the person which performs it.

Since the set of roles is slightly different for each event, and since it would therefore be impossible to provide sub-classes for all needs and circumstances, the SWC ontology only contains a very basic set of Role classes. Rather than diversifying the set of Role classes to cater for all needs, users should instead instantiate the small set of different Role classes and cover the roles at a specific event in this way. E.g., instead of sub-classing the Chair role with MainChair, WorkshopChair, TutorialChair, etc., the different kinds of chairs should simply be instances of the generic Chair class and be labelled appropriately.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: SessionEvent

LabelSession Event
sub-class-ofswc:AcademicEvent
statustesting

A session dedicated to a specific topic at a conference. This could be a session with talks, or also a poster session, a demo session, or any other kind of session.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: SlideSet

LabelSlide Set
sub-class-ofswc:ArgumentativeDocument, swc:Artefact

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: TalkEvent

LabelTalk Event
sub-class-ofswc:AcademicEvent
statustesting

A speaker giving a talk. This could be the presentation of a paper, but also keynote speech or any other kind of talk.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: TrackEvent

LabelTrack Event
sub-class-ofswc:AcademicEvent
statustesting

A track groups all those sessions or events at a conference or workshop that belong to a common, overall theme. Depending on the conference, tracks can be quite generic, such as "Research" or "Industrial", but can also be more specific, such as "Semantic Web" or "Numismatics". SWC does not define any specific tracks, since conferences often differ so much with respect to how they structure their tracks, that it would be pointless to try and find a set of tracks that would suit all conferences.

Sub-classes of TrackEvent which were defined in previous versions of the SWC ontology are now deprecated.

Look for usage of this class on Sindice.


Class: TutorialEvent

LabelTutorial Event
sub-class-ofswc:AcademicEvent
