*-- Final Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals --*

Submission deadline: February 15, 2022
Notification: March 1, 2022

The organisation team invites proposals for workshops and tutorials to be
submitted to the eighth edition of the Joint Ontology Workshop (JOWO 2022).
The event will take place at Jönköping University in Sweden on August
15-19, 2022.

Workshops and tutorials at JOWO 2022 are events whose scientific program is
independently established by the workshop organisers, but whose venue
matters are managed by the organisation of the umbrella event. Organisers
for each workshop are responsible to advertise the workshop, finding a
program committee, and reviewing and selecting the contributions. Each
workshop will be treated as an independent track at JOWO and will be
provided with a submission track on JOWO's Easychair, a room at a shared
venue with joint breaks, shared keynote speakers, and social programs.
Attendees are free to partake in all workshops at JOWO and all accepted
papers are to be published in the joint proceedings (open access CEUR
proceedings in the IAOA series: http://ceur-ws.org/iaoa.html).

Proposals for workshops of interest are those that provide a forum for the
discussion of theory, practice, development and/or application of
topics broadly
related to ontologies, formal ontology, and knowledge management and their
application in information science or closely related areas. The strength
of JOWO is the variety of different topics within the same domain.
Therefore, JOWO workshops typically address a wide spectrum of topics
related to ontology research and information science: ranging from
Philosophy and Cognitive Science. Knowledge Representation and Logic,
Linguistics and Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence and
Hybrid AI, Conceptual Modelling and Semantic Web. In general,
any particular domain in which ontologies may be put to use is welcome. As
a workshop collective, JOWO is especially suitable for interdisciplinary
and innovative formats.

Previous JOWO editions were held as independent events in 2019 in Graz
(Austria), in 2017 in Bolzano (Italy), and in conjunction with FOIS 2018 in
Cape Town (South Africa), with FOIS 2016 in Annecy (France), and at IJCAI
2015 in Buenos Aires (Argentina). During the pandemic
times 2022-21, JOWO were held as components in BOSK 2021 and 2022 in
Bolzano (Italy).

This year's venue is Jönköping University. The university offers
modern facilities in a mid-sized town in the south of Sweden. Beautifully
located between shimmering lakes and lush forests, Jönköping is a popular
tourist destination for nature lovers, sports enthusiasts and those
interested in nordic culture. JOWO will be organised as an on-site event,
but individual workshops may choose to invite part of their workshop
presenters in an online form.


*Workshop proposals should be sent to:steering.JOWO2022 at gmail.com as soon
as possible and no later than February 15, 2022. *

We encourage several forms and lengths of workshops (the list is

   - workshops that focus on an established research area, including
   continuations of workshops that were held in the past;
   - workshops that focus on emerging topics and applications, or on open
   research questions and challenges;
   - workshops that aim to create cross-disciplinary research fostering the
   exchange of ideas between groups otherwise mostly disconnected.

Proposals for workshops and tutorials should be* no more than 2 pages* in
length, and must contain the following information:

   - title of the workshop/tutorial;
   - names of the workshop/tutorial organisers;
   - brief description of experience in workshop/tutorial organisation;
   - description of the workshop/tutorial topic;
   - brief description of the expected audience (please give an estimate of
   the expected number of participants and their background and interests);
   - intended duration of the workshop (between half a day and a full day);
   - timeline for the workshop (submission dates, notification dates). We
   recommend taking the proposed "important dates" below into account.


Submissions of workshop proposals will be evaluated by the workshop chairs
of JOWO 2022 using the following criteria:

   - Scientific relevance and utility to attendees;
   - Quality of the proposal;
   - Likelihood of success of the workshop;
   - Overlap and complementarity with other workshops.


   - February 15, 2022 – Workshop proposal submission deadline
   - March 1, 2022 – Latest date for notification of workshop acceptance
   - March 16, 2022 – 1st call for papers to be distributed by individual
   workshop organisers
   - August 15-19, 2022 – JOWO conference dates
