Description of the Workshop

In recent years, research in contextual knowledge representation and reasoning became more relevant in the areas of Semantic Web, Linked Open Data, and Ambient Intelligence, where knowledge is not considered a monolithic and static asset, but it is distributed in a network of interconnected heterogeneous and evolving knowledge resources. Amounts of data of ever increasing scale are now handled and processed, either in form of datasets published on the Web or in form of sensor data streams. The challenge to deal with the contextual nature of this data is therefore brought to an unprecedented scale; however, also increasing opportunities arise to build novel applications combining and reusing semantic data across domains, depending on the ability to deal with the problems associated with context and data contextuality. The ARCOE-Logic workshop aims to provide a dedicated forum for the researchers to discuss recent developments, important open issues and future directions in the area of contextual knowledge representation and knowledge management.


ARCOE-Logic welcomes submissions on the topics below as well as on their intersection and other topics related to acquisition, representation, reasoning with context and its applications. A non-exclusive list of specific topics follows.

  • Formal aspects of context acquisition, representation and interpretation.
  • Matching, combining and disambiguating knowledge sources via contextual information.
  • Contextual search and information retrieval.
  • Modelling of user's, agent's, and application's context.
  • Ontologies for modeling and reasoning about contextual information.
  • Effective reasoning with contextual knowledge.
  • Exploiting context in inconsistency and uncertainty handling.
  • Distributed evaluation of contexts.
  • Tools and methodologies for handling context.
  • Representing context in Semantic Web standards and enriching Linked Data with contextual information.
  • Applications of contextual knowledge representation and reasoning in frame of the Semantic Web and beyond.
  • Evolution of SW/LD and other knowledge resources in changing contexts.

Submission Requirements

Submission of regular and position papers is possible. Regular papers are intended for research reports and surveys. ARCOE-Logic also welcomes reports on significant work in progress which has already achieved some interesting partial results, as well as papers recently submitted or published elsewhere as long as their topic is in line with the workshop. Regular papers should not exceed 12 pages in length including references. Position papers are intended for presentation of interesting new open issues and challenges, and opinions on the status of the field. Position papers are limited to 6 pages including references. All papers must be formatted using the Springer LNCS style:

and submitted in PDF format via EasyChair using:

All submitted papers will be subject to blind (but not double-blind) peer-review process. Accepted papers will be presented either as oral presentations or as posters, depending on the choice of the program committee. However, all accepted papers will be included in the Working Notes in their full form. For the first time ARCOE-Logic 2014 will have the workshop notes published either via or via
