Ontologies and rule systems, isolated and in combination, have established themselves as viable approaches to a number of pressing IT problems: giving both humans and client software (e.g. data analysis) intuitive, domain-oriented, uniform access to data; integrating multiple data sets with heterogeneous schemas; migrating data from legacy systems, etc.
This track solicits contributions on theoretical and practical aspects of rule- and ontology-based data access and transformation.
