FOnt 2005 - Foundational Aspects of Ontologies

A Workshop at the 28th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, KI
2005, Koblenz, Germany, September 11th, 2005


Call for Papers
===============

Representing and reasoning with ontologies is the core technology for the 
Semantic Web, and is growing in importance in many other areas of Computer 
Science where structured and hierarchically organized knowledge is of 
importance. While the need for ontological knowledge representation 
formalisms for practical applications is abundant, it is apparent that only 
conceptually and mathematically sound frameworks can provide the means for 
a significant technological advance in this area.

Indeed, formal and foundational aspects of ontologies are being studied in 
many application domains in order to serve practical needs. It lies in the 
nature of such fundamental research that a critical mass of different 
formal perspectives can generate a cross-fertilization of ideas and 
applications. We therefore intend to bring together researchers working on 
foundational aspects of ontologies in different application areas, in order 
to stimulate an exchange of ideas and methods between the subcommunities. 
We believe that a significant advance in understanding and establishing 
sound formal foundations for applied ontology research can this way be made.


Aim and Scope
-------------

The workshop is intended for researchers which contribute to the

     * algebraic,
     * logical,
     * category-theoretic,
     * philosophical,

and other foundations of ontology research.


Submissions
-----------

We invite the submission of original papers that have not been submitted 
for review or been published elsewhere. Submitted papers must be written in 
English and should not exceed 15 pages. All submitted papers will be judged 
based on their quality, relevance, originality, significance, and 
soundness. Papers must be submitted directly by email in PDF format to 
Pascal Hitzler (hitzler@aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de). Accepted papers will be 
published in the workshop proceedings, which will be distributed during the 
workshop.
