FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

WOMoCoE 2020 – 5th International Workshop on Ontology Modularity,
Contextuality, and Evolution
https://womocoe20.fbk.eu/

Part of 6th Joint Ontology WOrkshops (JOWO 2020),
Bolzano, Italy, 14-20 September, 2020
https://www.iaoa.org/jowo/2020/

===============================================================

In the area of ontologies for Knowledge representation and reasoning, knowledge is rarely considered as a monolithic and static structure: partitioning knowledge into distinct modular structures is central to organize knowledge bases, from their design to their management, from their maintenance to their use in knowledge sharing. Moreover, keeping knowledge in separate modules is essential for representing and for reliable and effective reasoning in changing situations. Finally, evolution of knowledge resources, in terms of updates by newly acquired knowledge, is an important factor influencing the meaningfulness of stored knowledge over time.

Considering these emerging needs, the 5th International Workshop on Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution (WOMoCoE 2020) offers the ground to practitioners and researchers to discuss current work on practical and theoretical aspects of modularity, contextuality and evolution of ontology based knowledge resources.

WOMoCoE 2020 is part of the 6th Joint Ontology WOrkshops (JOWO 2020). The Joint Ontology WOrkshops (JOWO) is a venue of workshops that, together, address a wide spectrum of topics related to ontology research, ranging from Cognitive Science to Knowledge Representation, Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Logic, Philosophy, and Linguistics.

---------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT DATES (tentative):

Abstracts deadline: 24 June 2020
Paper deadline: 29 June 2020
Notification: 27 July 2020
Camera ready: 17 August 2020
Workshop dates: 14-20 September 2019 (TBA)

---------------------------------------------------------------
TOPICS:

The workshop comprises, but is not strictly limited to, the following topics:

= Modularity =
- Languages for modular ontologies and knowledge representation
- Techniques for modularity: algorithms, implementations, ontology design patterns etc.
- Modularity in reasoning: incremental and distributed reasoning
- Modularity in ontology engineering: ontology modules reuse and publishing
- Theoretical and cognitive aspects of modularity

= Context =
- Representing and using context in ontologies and knowledge resources
- Ontologies and standards for modelling contextual information
- Reasoning with contextual information and metadata
- Matching, combining and disambiguating knowledge resources with contexts

= Evolution =
- Definitions, algorithms and evolution in ontologies and knowledge resources
- Reasoning and planning with evolving ontologies and data sources
- Evolution in ontology management: merging, versioning, alignment, integration
- Fault diagnosis and repair in ontologies and data sources
- Knowledge resources archiving and versioning

---------------------------------------------------------------
SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:

Submission of regular and position papers is possible:
- Regular papers (10-12 pages in length including references) include research reports and surveys.
- Position papers (6 pages in length including references) are intended for presentation of interesting new open issues and challenges, and opinions on the status of the field.

All papers must be submitted non-anonymously in PDF format and must follow the IOS Press formatting guidelines (available at https://www.iospress.nl/service/authors/latex-and-word-tools-for-book-authors/). Papers should be submitted via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jowo2020

Articles and abstracts accepted at JOWO workshops will be published by CEUR workshop proceedings IAOA series. (For previous editions of the JOWO proceedings, see www.iaoa.org/jowo/).

Further information about paper submission will be soon made available at:
