Call for Papers: FOUST VI


6th Workshop on Foundational Ontology (FOUST VI)


August 15 - 19, 2022

Organised as part of the 8th Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO 2022) held in Jönköping University, Jönköping, Sweden.



Workshop Topics


Foundational ontologies are attempts to systematise those categories of thought or reality which are common to all or almost all subject matters. Commonly considered examples of such categories include “object”, “quality”, “function”, “role”, “process”, “event”, “time”, and “place”. Amongst existing foundational ontologies, there is both a substantial measure of agreement and some dramatic disagreements. There is currently no uniform consensus concerning how a foundational ontology should be organised, how far its “reach” should be (e.g., is the distinction between agentive and non agentive entities sufficiently fundamental to be included here?), and even what role it should play in relation to more specialised domain ontologies. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and stakeholders to present work on specific foundational ontologies as well as their relations to each other and to the wider ontological enterprise, but also topics related to foundational questions in ontology engineering.

Relevant topics include:

  *   Changes to existing foundational ontologies/extensions by new modules
  *   Novel research on any specific category or topic that is usually covered by foundational ontology (e.g., functions, roles, time, mereology, ontological dependence, constitution)
  *   Theoretical results about specific foundational ontologies (e.g., consistency proofs, modularizations, etc.)
  *   Application results of foundational ontologies in AI, the Semantic Web, Linguistics, etc.
  *   Conceptual and formal comparisons and alignments of foundational ontologies
  *   Relationship and alignment of foundational ontologies and domain ontologies




We encourage two types of contributions:

  *   Full research paper: submitted papers must have between 10 and 12 pages + an additional page for references (if necessary).
  *   Short paper: submitted papers must have between 5 and 6 pages + an additional page for references (if necessary).

Papers should be submitted non-anonymously in PDF format in compliance with the new 1-column CEUR-ART Style, which can be found at https://ceurws.wordpress.com/2020/03/31/ceurws-publishes-ceurart-paper-style/
