18 - 21 April 2017, CAOS 2017: Cognition & Ontologies, Bath, England

Date: 18 - 21 April 2017
Location: Bath, England
Deadline: Wednesday 15 February 2017

CAOS is a workshop devoted to the relationship between cognition and ontologies with the purpose to model, simulate and represent cognitive phenomena for artificial intelligence.

CAOS addresses the difficult and topical question how key cognitive phenomena and concepts (and the involved terminology) that can be found across language, psychology and reasoning, can be formally and ontologically understood, analysed and represented. 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 hypothesised building blocks of cognition (such as, for instance, image schemas, affordances, and related notions) and of cognitive capacities (such as, for instance, concept invention), as well as system-demonstrations modelling these capacities in application settings. CAOS 2017 welcomes researchers from all career stages to participate. Work in progress and student projects are also welcome for submission as the primary goal of the workshop is discussion. All paper must be original and not submitted to or accepted by any other workshop, conference or journal.
