International Workshop on Ontologies for Services and Society (OSS2023)
Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO) 2023. The workshop will be held on
The workshop will be held on July 17-20, 2023, in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada in conjunction with FOIS 2023.
*WORKSHOP SCOPE AND AIM*
Semantic Technologies provide a formal way to represent knowledge in ways that are interpretable by computers and a related technology stack to store, integrate and query information semantically.
The purpose of the OSS workshop is to foster communication and strengthen interdisciplinary work at the intersection of semantic technologies and social services. We invite researchers from the Knowledge Representation, Semantic Web, Machine Learning, and Social Science communities to submit theoretical contributions, novel algorithms, artefacts, and tools related to social services. We welcome reports from Social Work practitioners on their experiences using semantic-enabled technologies, best practices, and insights.
For additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
