15 - 19 August 2022, Cognition And OntologieS Workshop (CAOS 2022), Joenkoeping, Sweden

Date: 15 - 19 August 2022
Location: Joenkoeping, Sweden
Deadline: Friday 3 June 2022

The purpose of the workshop is to bridge the gap between the cognitive sciences and research on formal ontologies and, thus, to create a venue for researchers interested in interdisciplinary aspects of knowledge representation.

More specifically, CAOS investigates key cognitive phenomena and concepts (and the involved terminology) that can be found across language, psychology, and reasoning, and how they can be formally and ontologically understood and analysed. The exploration of the connection between cognitive sciences/experimental psychology and ontologies, as well as, more generally, symbolic AI, aims also to provide formal and logical modelling and reasoning approaches for capturing such connections. CAOS, thus, seeks answers to ways such formalisations and ontological analysis can be exploited in Artificial Intelligence and information systems, also in practical application.

Cognition And OntologieS 2022 is part of the 8th Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO 2022).

We welcome submissions on topics related to the ontology of hypothesised building blocks of cognition (such as image schemas, affordances, categories, and related notions) and of cognitive capacities (such as concept invention and combination, 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.

We welcome researchers from all career stages to participate. Besides full research papers, work in progress (short papers) and extended abstracts (presentation only) are also welcome since a central goal of the workshop is the discussion of ongoing interdisciplinary work. All research papers must be original and not submitted to or accepted by any other workshop, conference or journal.
