17 September 2021, 5th International Workshop on Cognition and Ontologies (CAOS 2021), Bolzano (Italy) & Virtual

Date: Friday 17 September 2021
Time: 09:45-13:30
Location: Bolzano (Italy) & Virtual
Deadline: Saturday 3 July 2021

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 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.

CAOS 2021 is going to happen at the Bolzano Summer of Knowledge, BOSK 2021, in September 2021, organised as a FOIS 2021 workshop.  CAOS 2021 is planned as a hybrid event.

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. Work in progress (short papers) are also welcome since a central goal of the workshop is the discussion of ongoing interdisciplinary work.

We encourage three types of contributions: Full research papers (10-14 pages), Short papers (5-7 pages), and Abstracts for presentation (2-4 pages). All papers must be original and not submitted to or accepted by any other workshop, conference or journal.
