From the webpage:
This is the third edition in a series of workshops addressing the emerging topic of ontology patterns as best practices, related to the ontologydesignpatterns.org initiative.
Patterns need to be shared by a community in order to provide a common language, and to stimulate pattern usage and development. Hence, the aim of this workshop is twofold
- providing an arena for proposing and discussing good practices, patterns, pattern-based ontologies, systems etc., and
- broadening the pattern community that is developing its own “language” for discussing and describing relevant problems and their solutions.
For more background on the workshop series, see the main page.
CTM (Topic Maps — Compact Syntax) supports templates, which you can use to support the use of patterns in topic map authoring.
I first saw this in a tweet by Anita de Waard.
