17 - 18 September 2018, 1st International Workshop on Ontology of Economics, Cape Town (South Africa)

Date: 17 - 18 September 2018
Location: Cape Town (South Africa)
Deadline: Monday 18 June 2018

Understanding the ontological nature of economic concepts and institutions is crucial for providing principled modelling in many important domains such as enterprise modelling, business processes, and social ontology. A significant number of fundamental concepts that are ubiquitous in economics have only recently been approached from an ontological perspective. For instance: value, risk, preference, utility, capability, good, service, exchange, transaction, competition. This workshop offers a venue to gather the recent contributions to this important topic.

The workshop is part of the Joint Ontology Workshop Programme associated with the 10th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems (FOIS).

We welcome submissions from areas such as (philosophy of) economics, decision theory, social choice theory, business, finance, accounting, economic sociology, and enterprise modeling, to promote the discussion of the ontological foundation of fundamental concepts in economics.
