Image Schema Day III (ISD3), September 21-23, Bolzano, Italy

Following the trend amongst the JOWO workshops, ISD3 follows suit and
extends its deadline to the 28th of July.

Extended submission deadline: July 28

This year the 3rd Image Schema Day <http://isd.inf.unibz.it/> will be part
of the Joint Ontology Workshops JOWO 2017 <http://iaoa.org/jowo/2017/>,
hosted at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy.


Todd Oakley (Case Western Reserve University) will speak on "Force dynamics
and the windowing of attention".

*Keynote and Cello Performance:*

Nicola Baroni (Music Conservatory 'Claudio Monteverdi, Bolzano) will speak
on "Hyperinstruments as a Gestural Approach to Composition".

*J**OWO shared keynote speakers: *

Giancarlo Guizzardi (Free University of Bozen-Bolzano), will speak on:
"It's Patterns all the way down: Patterns, Anti-Patterns and
Pattern-Languages for Next-Generation Ontology Engineering"

Antonio Chella (University of Palermo) will speak on: "Grounding ontologies
in the external world".

Todd Oakley will speak on "What We Think About When We Talk About Money:
Social Ontology and the Amalgamated Mind"

*The image schema day:*

Image schemas, in one view, can be seen as the conceptual building blocks
inferred from early sensorimotor processes. Research on image-schematic
has traditionally been conducted in cognitive linguistics, but schemas have
also been given some attention in semiotics, philosophy, developmental
psychology, and design, among other fields. Recently, some schools in
intelligence have also become interested in the potential impact of image
schemas as a bridge between the physical world and the human mind.

A psychologist might study how children develop them; a philosopher might
structure them ontologically; a neuroscientist might wonder how directly
they are connected to neural activation in the sensorimotor cortex; a
linguist might wonder what spatial language and embodiment in general have to
do with abstract concepts; a musicologist might ask how image schemas are
related to musical gesture; an AI specialist might work on how to integrate
image schemas into a system for natural language understanding; and in
cognitive robotics, researchers might wonder how image schemas can help
robots in achieving human-level performance in a variety of tasks.

We hope to see an interdisciplinary meeting focused on the topic of image
schemas and related constructs, where participants contribute with insights
from their own discipline.

The workshop will take place at the third Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO)
<http://iaoa.org/jowo/JOWO-2017/>, where ten ontology-centered workshops
meet for three days in an exciting joint event at the Free University of
Bozen-Bolzano. The inspiring environment, tucked in between the South
Tyrollean Alps, promises to provide an excellent setting to discuss
innovative and state of the art research. Please join us!

We look forward to seeing you in Bolzano!

Maria, Mihailo and Oliver
