WOMoCoE 2018 – 3rd International Workshop on Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution

Co-located with KR 2018 – 16th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning – Tempe, Arizona, 29 October 2018

Website: http://dai.fmph.uniba.sk/events/womocoe2018/ 

In the Knowledge representation and reasoning area, knowledge is rarely considered as a monolithic and static structure. Instead, partitioning knowledge into distinct modular structures is central to organize knowledge bases. Moreover, representing and reasoning about context is essential for correct exploitation of modules and reasoning in changing situations. Finally, evolution of knowledge resources is an important factor influencing the meaningfulness of stored knowledge over time.
Considering these emerging needs, the 3rd International Workshop on Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution (WOMoCoE 2018) offers the ground to discuss current work on practical and theoretical aspects of modularity, contextuality and evolution of knowledge resources. The workshop aims to bring together an interdisciplinary audience interested in its topics both from a theoretical and formal point of view and from an applicational perspective.


Abstracts deadline:		16 July 2018
Paper deadline:			21 July 2018
Notification:			25 August 2018
Camera ready:			15 September 2018
Workshop dates:			29 October 2018


The workshop comprises, but is not strictly limited to, the following topics:

= Modularity in knowledge resources =
Modular ontology and knowledge representation languages
Modularity in reasoning: incremental and distributed reasoning
Modularity in ontology engineering: ontology modules reuse and publishing
Algorithms and implementations for module extraction
Ontology design patterns for modularity
Modularity in ontology and data visualization
Modularity in KR applications
Theoretical and cognitive aspects of modularity

= Representing and facilitating context in knowledge resources =
Representing context in knowledge resources
Ontologies for modelling contextual information
Capturing contextuality in KR languages
Reasoning with contextual information and metadata
Matching, combining and disambiguating knowledge resources with contexts
Contextuality in KR applications
Formal aspects of context acquisition, representation and interpretation.

= Evolution of knowledge resources =
Definitions and algorithms for belief change in ontologies, and knowledge resources
Reasoning and planning with evolving knowledge and data sources
Evolution in ontology management: merging, versioning, alignment, integration
Fault diagnosis and repair in ontologies and data sources
Resource archiving and versioning
Ontology transformation and ontology transformation patterns
Evolution of knowledge resources in applications


Submission of regular and position papers is possible:
- Regular papers (12 pages in length including references) include research reports and surveys.
- Position papers (6 pages in length including references) are intended for presentation of interesting new open issues and challenges, and opinions on the status of the field.

WOMoCoE also welcomes reports on significant work in progress which has already achieved some interesting partial results, as well as papers recently submitted or published elsewhere as long as their topic is in line with the workshop. An extended abstract will be required and included in the proceedings for papers presented elsewhere.

All papers must be formatted using the Springer LNCS style and submitted in PDF via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=womocoe2018
