    Onto4FAIR Workshop at Semantics 2023
    3rd Workshop on Ontologies for FAIR and FAIR Ontologies (Onto4FAIR), in conjunction with Semantics 2023, 20 September 2023, Leipzig, Germany
    This is a twin workshop proposal at both FOIS 2023 and Semantics 2023 conferences. The primary aim is to bring the gap between the scientific and the practitioner/industry sides, respectively, where we would take the greatest and latest advances in the state of the art to industry and bring back the practitioners’ needs and challenges to the scientific community of figure out a solution.

    Making the resources produced by researchers fully reusable and understood requires specific efforts. The Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) principles were elaborated to address these issues, describing a set of requirements for resource reusability and interoperability. These principles have been gaining increasing attention in a range of different areas and applications. One the one hand, a key aspect is the ability of properly and semantically describing resources, in particular with the help of ontologies. On the other hand, ontologies themselves have to be compliant with the FAIR principles.
    The workshop has the following main goals: (i) to bring together leaders from academia, industry and user institutions to discuss the adoption of FAIR principles in research and real-world requirements. (ii) to serve to inform about existing research efforts that may meet their requirements. (iii) to investigate how the FAIR principles are supported by the use of ontologies that ideally are themselves FAIR. (iv) to discuss the challenges and perspectives in adopting FAIR principles.
    Workshop topics
    The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
    – schemes, ontologies and vocabulaires for FAIR data and metadata;
    – domain and cross-domain ontologies for FAIR data;
    – making vocabularies and ontologies FAIR;
    – alignment of schemes, vocabulaires and ontologies for FAIR;
    – data management for FAIR data;
    – best practices for implementing the FAIR principles;
    – FAIRification process and use cases;
    – metrics for FAIRness assessment;
    – provenance in FAIR environments;
    – FAIR principles and open science;
    – FAIR principles and linked open data;
    – FAIR in industry, scientific communities (life science, digital humanities, health, smart cities, etc.).
