Call For Papers

--- Third Call for Papers ---

Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO-16)
-- Episode 2: The French Summer --

5 workshops on Ontology in Information Systems

Co-located with FOIS 2016, July 6-9, 2016, Annecy, France

This second edition of the Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO-16) combines five exciting ontology-centered workshops at FOIS-16.


- Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution (WOMoCoE 2016)
- Computer vision + ONTology: Applied Cross-disciplinary Technologies (CONTACT 2016)
- Cognition and Ontologies (CAOS 2016)
- New Standards for the Working Ontologist: Common Logic and DOL (NSWO 2016)
- Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling (Onto.Com 2016)

JOWO-16 is supported by the International Association for Ontology and its Applications - IAOA. It features a series of (shared) invited talks, paper presentations, and discussions spread across five full-day workshops and tutorials.


Submission (abstracts): May 3, 2016
Submission (full papers): May 9
Notification: May 30
Workshops: July 6

WOMoCoE 2016
International Workshop on Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution

Organisers: Stefano Borgo, Loris Bozzato, Chiara Del Vescovo, Martin Homola

This workshop brings together two long standing event series: WoMO, the workshops on modular ontology, and ARCOE, the workshops on automated reasoning on context and ontology evolution. The goal is to discuss these topics in a single venue and try to compare/integrate the new ideas on ontology modularity, context and evolution. The workshop is open to theoretical and application research, experiences and innovative visions featuring a Program Committee with a mix of experienced and young groundbreaking people. WOMOCoE will feature an invited talk by Jerome Euzenat.

Second International Workshop on Computer vision + ONTology:
Applied Cross-disciplinary Technologies

Organisers: Marco Cristani, Céline Hudelot, Daniele Porello

The aim of the CONTACT series is to bring together a wide range of researchers in formal ontology on the one side and computer vision and machine learning on the other, to share innovative ideas and solutions for exploiting the potential synergies emerging from the integration of the two domains. The problem of image and video understanding is a complex task that benefits from a multi-disciplinary perspective. CONTACT provides a venue to discuss a principled methodology to ascribe meaning to images and videos, as well as the applications of this methodology to querying image databases, reasoning about images and scenes, inferring information from videos.

CAOS 2016
First International Workshop on Cognition and Ontologies

Organisers: Maria M. Hedblom, Tarek R. Besold, Oliver Kutz, Tony Veale

CAOS is for researchers interested in discussing cognitive mechanisms and phenomena from an ontological perspective. Work on artificial intelligence, cognitive systems, applied ontology, natural language processing, reasoning, formal concept invention, and philosophical aspects of the former are the main focus of the workshop. (Still, all other topics relating cognition and ontology are of course equally welcome.) We especially encourage submissions on different theories of cognition, work addressing the symbol grounding problem(s), and attempts to make concrete the abstract nature of concepts and metaphors.
CAOS will feature an invited talk by Jean M. Mandler. Join us!

NSWO 2016
New Standards for the Working Ontologist: Common Logic and DOL

Organisers: Michael Gruninger, Oliver Kutz, Till Mossakowski, Fabian Neuhaus

NSWO 2016 will be entirely devoted to two new standards in the realm of applied ontology: the second revision of Common Logic and the new Distributed Ontology, Model, and Specification Language, DOL. NSWO will provide tutorials introducing syntax and semantics of both Common Logic and DOL. We will be discussing a number of modelling and interoperability problems that can be addressed with these standards, analyse the mostly complementary relationship between Common Logic and DOL, and demonstrate available tools. NSWO also invites contributed scientific papers involving Common Logic and/or DOL.

Onto.Com 2016
Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling

Organisers: Giancarlo Guizzardi, Sergio de Cesare, Frederik Gailly, Mark Lycett, Chris Partridge, Oscar Pastor

This year the theme of Onto.Com will be Foundational Ontologies and their Meta-ontological Choices. Leading ontologists and conceptual modelers will be invited to discuss and comparatively analyze different foundational ontologies, their meta-ontological choices and their associated modeling processes. The workshop will be practically oriented and discussions will be centered on models produced for a common case study. This will facilitate discussions related to the consequences of making different meta-ontological choices.


Please refer to the individual workshops for detailed lists of topics
appropriate for each workshop and submission modalities.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the program
committees of the individual workshops. Accepted papers will be made
available in the form of a single joint workshop proceedings volume published at CEUR.

For additional publication plans check the individual workshops.
