MK 2023 : 2nd Workshop on Modular Knowledge
Call For Papers
*Workshop on Modular Knowledge (2nd edition), co-located with FOIS 2023*
DEADLINE EXTENDED: *May 22nd, 2023* (AoE)
Note: You do not need to have submitted an abstract in order to submit until this deadline.
*First Call for Papers*
We invite submissions to the 2nd Workshop on Modular Knowledge (MK2023), to be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Formal Ontologies in Information Systems (FOIS 2023) that will take place in Sherbrooke, Quebec (Canada) from July 17 to 20, 2023. This is designed as an in-person only workshop.
The Modular Knowledge workshop offers an interdisciplinary venue for discussing and developing solutions for modularity of knowledge: the dramatic increase in the amount of open and linked data and the increasing semantification of such data make clear that knowledge is not monolithic, static or uniform, and that there is a need of methods and tools for dealing with heterogeneous and distributed knowledge as a constellation of modules.
The workshop aims to cover and establish connections between various approaches (ranging from rich semantic representations, like Knowledge Graphs and formal ontology, to simpler schemas, like RDF and database schemas) for representing knowledge, its context, its evolution, and for making it accessible to automatic reasoning and knowledge management tasks. We welcome approaches that make use of logic-based, subsymbolic, or numerical representations.
Modular Knowledge is a full-day workshop consisting of full paper and short/position paper presentations, a lightning talk session, an interactive session between pairs of participants randomly selected, and an open discussion between all participants.
- Paper submission deadline: ***May 22, 2023***
- Paper notification: June 15, 2023
- Camera-ready version: June 30, 2023 (strict)
- Submission deadline for lightning talks: July 7, 2023
- Workshop day (in-person only): July 19 or 20, 2023
We seek contributions on all aspects of modularity in data, information and knowledge, including:
- Theoretical and cognitive aspects of modularity
- Languages for capturing modularity
- Modularity in knowledge graphs, linked data and ontologies (conceptual, as well as formal)
- Modules and modularity at all stages of knowledge engineering, including during modeling and design, formalization, verification, and use (for querying, reasoning and other purposes)
- Extracting and computing modules from knowledge and data sources
- Merging, aligning, integrating, and matching of data and knowledge via modules
- Versioning and evolution of modules and modular knowledge
- Reasoning and representing knowledge in context
We invite the submission of original research results and proposed research directions related to the focus areas of the workshop, in one of the three categories given below:
- Full papers (up to 12 pages, including references) with mature work and established results, including research reports and surveys
- Short/position papers (up to 6 pages, including references) presenting proposed research directions, new open issues, ideas and challenges, positions and opinions on the status of the field
- Lightning talk abstracts (up to 500 words) with a position statement, a challenge, a project, a tool, a research group, a paper/poster/demo presented at the main conference, related to the topics of the workshop
All papers must be formatted using the one-column CEUR-ART style (instructions here: https://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/) and submitted non-anonymously in PDF via EasyChair at this link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fois2023 in the “Modular Knowledge 2023” track.
The template for CEURART can be downloaded from http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/CEURART.zip or authors may start from this Overleaf page: https://www.overleaf.com/read/gwhxnqcghhdt
Accepted full and short papers will be published in the proceedings of the Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO 2023). Accepted lightning talks abstracts will solely be made available from the workshop website. For accepted papers, participation and presentation by one of the authors is required.
Further information about paper publication will be soon available at the workshop website.
