1st CFP — CAOS 2019: Cognition And OntologieS IV

4th International Workshop on Cognition and Ontologies
Medical University of Graz, September 23-25, 2019
Part of The Joint Ontology Workshops JOWO 2019

Workshop Webpage: https://caos.inf.unibz.it/
JOWO 2019 Webpage: https://www.iaoa.org/jowo/2019/

The purpose of the workshop is to bridge the gap between the cognitive
sciences and research on ontologies and, thus, to create a venue for
researchers interested in interdisciplinary aspects of knowledge
More specifically CAOS addresses the difficult question of how key
cognitive phenomena and concepts (and the involved terminology) can be
found across language, psychology and reasoning and how this can be
formally and ontologically understood, analyzed and represented.
We welcome submissions on topics related to the ontology of hypothesized
building blocks of cognition (such as image schemas, affordances, and
related notions) and of cognitive capacities (such as concept invention,
language acquisition), as well as system-demonstrations modelling these
capacities in application settings.
We also welcome submissions addressing the cognitive and epistemological
adequacy of ontological modelling.

AUDIENCE: We aim to address to an interdisciplinary audience, by inviting
scholars in philosophy, computer science, logic, conceptual modelling,
knowledge representation, and cognitive science to contribute to the

Topics of interest (include but are not restricted to):

Modelling cognitive phenomena:

- Language acquisition
- Formalisation / modelling of language
- Embodied cognition
- Concept invention
- AI for language understanding
- Image schemas / affordances for AI
- Knowledge acquisition in AI and Robotics
- Natural language applications / system-demonstrations

Epistemological and cognitive foundation of ontologies:

- Cognitive foundations of ontologies and ontologies of cognitive theories
(e.g. connection with conceptual spaces, diagrammatic representations,
mental models, prototypes, image schemas, scripts etc.).
- Empirical foundations of ontologies: ontologies driven from observations,
measurements, tests, and in general from data acquired using empirical
- Representation of different perspectives on the same domain: contexts,
granularity, resolution, ontological levels.
- Quantitative approaches/analyses, probabilities, uncertainty, and
- Neural networks and ontological modelling.
- Integration of ontologies with different formats and levels of
representation (e.g. neural-symbolic integration).
- Inductive reasoning in ontologies.
- Ontological Extensions of Cognitive Architectures.

Important Dates

- Submission deadline: May 31, 2019
- Notification:  June 31, 2019
- Camera-ready: July 15, 2019

Accepted Submissions

We welcome two types of submissions:

- Regular articles (8-12 pages including the bibliography) for presenting
original unpublished work, neither submitted to, nor accepted for, any
other venue.

descriptions of ongoing research and projects, preliminary approaches,
position papers, or descriptions of related previously published research.
