Hi, first of all I want to say: I think this idea is great! (actually, I 
already had KMail opened to propose such an ontology by myself when I noticed 
this thread...) Well, my dream is that one day I can open KRunner, write some 
words about a research topic and "magically" find my corresponding authors, 
papers, conferences, and own notes...

For now I want to add some ideas that came to my mind when studying the entity 
graph of the proposal (I need to say: I am quite experienced with BibTeX, but 
not with the Nepomuk ontologies):

* Locally stored Files: I could not find a specific entry for locally saved 
files. Me and most of my colleges store quite large archives of PDFs on their 
computers and try to keep them in sync with the corresponding bibliography 
descriptions. As there is also a large number of quite expensive journals that 
you do not want to by twice, there is sometimes even an advantage of a local 
copy compared to use a weblink. So: what about adding support for locally 
saved papers.

* Conferences: One of my key search terms in my personal paper database are 
specific conferences. So it would be nice to have an additional entity 
discribing a conference with its date/month, organization, and place. AFAIK 
those values are also described by the BibTeX meta-reference "conference".
