Professor Vasant Honavar co-chaired the First International Workshop on Modular Ontologies, held in conjunction with the Fifth International Semantic Web Conference at Athens, Georgia on November 5, 2006. The workshop brought together researchers from around the world that are working on syntax, semantics, proof theory, and algorithms for linking, using, and reasoning with modular ontologies in Semantic Web applications. The workshop organizers included Peter Haase and York Sure (Karlsruhe), Oliver Kutz (Manchester) and Andrei Tamilin (Trento), in addition to Vasant Honavar (ISU). The symposium included several contributed papers as well as invited lectures (by Professor Alex Borgida of Rutgers University and Professor Frank Wolter from the University of Liverpool).
