Workshop on Interaction-based Knowledge Sharing (WINKS)

This first Workshop on Interaction-Based Knowledge Sharing (WINKS) collocated with the third Joint Ontology Workshops ( is fully dedicated to challenges and solutions to knowledge sharing in interaction-based environments, ranging from the Internet of Things to multi-agent systems. Gradually expanding, distributed systems heighten the need of a dynamic interactive knowledge sharing process, while at the same time an increasing heterogeneity of resources renders this process more complex. As a highly interdisciplinary workshop, discussions will center on requirements and suggestions to endow computational models with knowledge sharing capabilities in interactive scenarios.

Topics of interest for papers, posters, and software demonstrations of original and unpublished work include, but are not limited to:

Ontological grounding of knowledge sharing and interactions:
- Theories of knowledge sharing in human-machine interaction
- Theories of knowledge sharing in human-human interaction
- Sharing semantics in natural language interactions
- Knowledge sharing in robotics and autonomous systems
- Cognitive aspects of knowledge sharing
- Multidisciplinary approaches to interaction-based knowledge sharing

Interaction-Based Reasoning:
- Interactive case-based reasoning
- Distributed reasoning in multi-agent systems
- Distributed reasoning in the Internet of Things, Semantic Web, and Big Data

Interaction-Based Knowledge Resources Engineering:
- Ontology alignment in multi-agent systems
- Machine learning in distributed system engineering
- Creation of datasets by distributed interactive systems
- Collaborative ontology engineering

Knowledge Sharing in Interaction-based Applications:
- Case studies
- Applications in different domains, e.g. life sciences, social sciences, etc.
- Applications in industry

Submissions need to present original research and contain an abstract of no more than 300 words. Please use easychair to submit your paper and the IOS press template . All submissions should be blind and will receive two peer reviews. Types of submissions are:

Full papers: mature research work describing original research and its validation (10-12 pages including references)
Short papers: research papers describing interesting new open issues and challenges, and opinions on the status of the field (4-5 pages including references)

Paper submission deadline: 17 July 2017
Notifications: 15 August 2017
Camera-ready version: 1 September 2017
Workshop: between 21 and 23 September 2017
