                - NEW DEADLINES -

    Joint Ontology Workshops  (JOWO-16)
       -- Episode 2: The French Summer --

5 workshops on Ontology in Information Systems

Co-located with FOIS 2016, July 6-9, 2016, Annecy, France

This second edition of the Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO-16) combines five
exciting ontology-centered workshops at FOIS-16.


- Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution (WOMoCoE 2016)
- Computer vision + ONTology: Applied Cross-disciplinary Technologies
(CONTACT 2016)
- Cognition and Ontologies (CAOS 2016)
- New Standards for the Working Ontologist: Common Logic and DOL (NSWO 2016)
- Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling (OntoCom 2016)

JOWO-16 is supported by the International Association for Ontology and its
Applications - IAOA. It features a series of (shared) invited talks, paper
presentations, and discussions spread across five full-day workshops and

WOMoCoE 2016
International Workshop on Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution

Organisers: Stefano Borgo, Loris Bozzato, Chiara Del Vescovo, Martin Homola

This workshop brings together two long standing event series: WoMO, the
workshops on modular ontology, and ARCOE, the workshops on automated
reasoning on context and ontology evolution. The goal is to discuss these
topics in a single venue and try to compare/integrate the new ideas on
ontology modularity, context and evolution. The workshop is open to
theoretical and application research, experiences and innovative visions
featuring a Program Committee with a mix of experienced and young
groundbreaking people. WOMOCoE will feature an invited talk by Jerome

Second International Workshop on Computer vision + ONTology:
Applied Cross-disciplinary Technologies

Organisers: Marco Cristani, CĂ©line Hudelot, Daniele Porello

The aim of the CONTACT series is to bring together a wide range of
researchers in formal ontology on the one side and computer vision and
machine learning on the other, to share innovative ideas and solutions for
exploiting the potential synergies emerging from the integration of the two
domains. The problem of image and video understanding is a complex task
that benefits from a multi-disciplinary perspective. CONTACT provides a
venue to discuss a principled methodology to ascribe meaning to images and
videos, as well as the applications of this methodology to querying image
databases, reasoning about images and scenes, inferring information from

CAOS 2016
First International Workshop on Cognition and Ontologies

Organisers: Maria M. Hedblom, Tarek R. Besold, Oliver Kutz, Tony Veale

CAOS is for researchers interested in discussing cognitive mechanisms and
phenomena from an ontological perspective. Work on artificial intelligence,
cognitive systems, applied ontology, natural language processing,
reasoning, formal concept invention, and philosophical aspects of the
former are the main focus of the workshop. (Still, all other topics
relating cognition and ontology are of course equally welcome.) We
especially encourage submissions on different theories of cognition, work
addressing the symbol grounding problem(s), and attempts to make concrete
the abstract nature of concepts and metaphors.
CAOS will feature an invited talk by Jean M. Mandler. Join us!

NSWO 2016
New Standards for the Working Ontologist: Common Logic and DOL

Organisers: Michael Gruninger, Oliver Kutz, Till Mossakowski, Fabian Neuhaus

NSWO 2016 will be entirely devoted to two new standards in the realm of
applied ontology: the second revision of Common Logic and the new
Distributed Ontology, Model, and Specification Language, DOL. NSWO will
provide tutorials introducing syntax and semantics of both Common Logic and
DOL. We will be discussing a number of modelling and interoperability
problems that can be addressed with these standards, analyse the mostly
complementary relationship between Common Logic and DOL, and demonstrate
available tools.  NSWO also invites contributed scientific papers involving
Common Logic and/or DOL.

OntoCom 2016
Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling

Organisers: Giancarlo Guizzardi, Sergio de Cesare, Frederik Gailly, Mark
Lycett, Chris Partridge, Oscar Pastor

This year the theme of Onto.Com will be Foundational Ontologies and their
Meta-ontological Choices. Leading ontologists and conceptual modelers will
be invited to discuss and comparatively analyze different foundational
ontologies, their meta-ontological choices and their associated modeling
processes. The workshop will be practically oriented and discussions will
be centered on models produced for a common case study. This will
facilitate discussions related to the consequences of making different
meta-ontological choices.


Please refer to the individual workshops for detailed lists of topics
appropriate for each workshop and submission modalities.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the program
committees of the individual workshops. Accepted papers will be made
available in the form of a single joint workshop proceedings volume
published at CEUR.

For additional publication plans check the individual workshops.
