[CfP] MK2023 @ FOIS2023 - Call for Participation and Lightning Talks

*Workshop on Modular Knowledge (2nd edition), co-located with FOIS 2023*
*Call for Participation and Lightning Talks*

*Important Dates*
- Submission deadline for lightning talks: July 12, 2023
- Workshop date: July 20, 2023


We invite you to participate in 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

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.

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
- Versioning and evolution of modules and modular knowledge
- Reasoning and representing knowledge in context

*Submission requirements (Lightning talks)*
We invite the submission of:

Lightning talk abstracts (up to 500 words) with a position statement, a
challenge, a project, a tool, a team, a paper/poster/demo presented at the
main conference, related to the topics of the workshop

All abstracts must be submitted non-anonymously via EasyChair at this link:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fois2023 in the “Modular Knowledge
2023” track.

Accepted lightning talks abstracts will be made available from the workshop
website. Remote presentation of lightning talks will be possible (details
on presentation options will be provided soon).
