CAOS 2021 - Call for Papers
Cognition And OntologieS
in conjunction with FOIS held September 11-18 in Bolzano, Italy
(hybrid event)


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 investigates how key cognitive phenomena and
concepts (and the involved terminology) can be found across language,
psychology and reasoning and how they can be formally and ontologically
understood and analysed. It moreover seeks answers to ways such
formalisations and ontological analysis can be exploited in Artificial
Intelligence and information systems in general.

We welcome submissions on topics related to the ontology of hypothesized
building blocks of cognition (such as image schemas, affordances,
categories, and related notions) and of cognitive capacities (such as
concept invention, language acquisition and categorisation), as well as
system demonstrations modelling these capacities in application settings.
We also welcome submissions addressing the cognitive and epistemological
adequacy of ontological modelling.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited 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 procedures.
   - 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.

We welcome researchers from all career stages to participate. Work in
progress (short papers) are also welcome since a central goal of the
workshop is the discussion of ongoing interdisciplinary work.

All papers must be original and not submitted to or accepted by any other
workshop, conference or journal. Note, that for inclusion in the JOWO
proceedings, short and position papers are required to be at least 5 pages

All contributions will be peer-reviewed, and the review process will be
managed in a collaborative and transparent manner using the EasyChair
System as part of the JOWO organisation.


Submission deadline: July 3, 2021
Submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jowo2021
(select the track “Cognition And OntologieS”)

*Details and instructions:*
We encourage three types of contributions:

Full research paper: Submitted papers must not exceed 14 pages (excluding
the bibliography).
Please note that the minimum length is 10 pages.

Short paper: Submitted papers must not exceed 7 pages (excluding the
bibliography). Please note that the minimum length is 5 pages.

*Abstracts for presentation:* 2-4 page abstracts for presentation.
Note that these will *not* be included in the proceedings.

Papers should be submitted non-anonymously in PDF format in compliance with
the new 1-column CEUR-ART Style. Word and Latex templates can be found at

All contributions to JOWO workshops will be published in a joint CEUR
proceedings volume, compare:

JOWO 2020: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2708/
JOWO 2019: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2518/
JOWO 2018: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2205/

Workshop policy

CAOS 2021 is planned as a hybrid event. Hence, there will be a physical
meeting in Bolzano which hopefully most will be able to join. However,
given the uncertainty about travel in September, we will make arrangements
for remote participation. If the physical meeting cannot be held due to
social restrictions, the workshop will go fully virtual.
