TEX-OWL: a Latex-Style Syntax for authoring OWL 2 ontologies

TeX-OWL is a new syntax that can be used to write OWL 2 ontologies.
It was developed to address the need for an easy-to-read and easy-to-write plain text syntax.
TeX-OWL is inspired by LaTeX syntax, and covers all construct of OWL 2.
We designed TeX-OWL to be less verbose than the other OWL syntaxes, and easy-to-use especially for quickly developing small-size ontologies with just a text editor.
An OWLAPI-based Java parser and writer is available to easily convert TeX-OWL to/from other OWL2 syntaxes.
