23 - 25 September 2019, 4th International Workshop on Cognition and Ontologies (CAOS 2019), Graz, Austria

Date: 23 - 25 September 2019
Location: Graz, Austria
Deadline: Friday 31 May 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 representation. 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 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 discussion.

This workshop is part of The Joint Ontology Workshops JOWO 2019.

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.

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- Regular articles (8-12 pages including the bibliography) for presenting original unpublished work, neither submitted to, nor accepted for, any other venue.
- Short articles (6 pages including the bibliography) for presenting brief descriptions of ongoing research and projects, preliminary approaches, position papers, or descriptions of related previously published research.
