The conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE'13) provides a forum on the use of ontologies and data semantics in novel applications. Of particular relevance to ODBASE 2013 are papers that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as databases, social networks, mobile systems, artificial intelligence, information retrieval, and computational linguistics. We also encourage the submission of research and practical experience papers concerning scale issues in ontology management, information integration, and information extraction, as well as papers that examine the information needs of various applications. This year, in addition to its traditional focus on the management of semantically rich information, ODBASE will have special themes on Semantic Data Mining and Information Governance.

We encourage submissions in areas that connect semantics with the entire data flow cycle: data acquisition e.g. from social networks and mobile devices, data stream processing, e.g., filtering and event contextualization, data analysis,e.g., pattern and knowledge discovery, to dissemination, e.g., publish/subscribe.

ODBASE'13 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners by being part of the Federated conferences Event "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2013 (OnTheMove'13)" that co-locates three conferences: ODBASE'13, DOA-SVI'13 (International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures), and CoopIS'13(International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems).


Specific areas of interest to ODBASE'13 include but are not limited to:

Management of Semantically Expressive Information
- Semantic data modeling
- Semantic integration, including ontology matching, merging, etc.
- Ontology engineering and metadata management
- Ontology-based data management
- Governance aspects such as workflows, roles and responsibilities in semantic information management

Large Scale and Complex Information Management and Analysis
- Semantic indexing, search and query answering in large volumes of data
- Annotation, extraction, summarization, and integration of heterogeneous data resources
- Semantic data mining
- Semantic social network analysis
- Semantic services for big data

Semantic Management of Complex Event Processing
- Semantics in event-driven architectures
- Event algebras, event schemas and type systems
- Event-driven business process management
- Events in social sensing&Collective Intelligence

Applications, Evaluations, and Experiences in the following domains:
- Web 2.0 and Semantic Web,
- Linked Data Web
- Online Social Networks
- Hypertext, multimedia, and hypermedia
- Enterprise-wide Information Systems
- eCommerce, eScience, and Virtual Organizations
- Ubiquitous and Mobile Information Systems
- Information Governance
