WOMoCoE 2017 2nd International Workshop on Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution

Collocated with ISWC 2017, Vienna, Austria October 21–25, 2017

About WOMoCoE 2017

In the Semantic Web and Linked Data, knowledge is rarely considered a monolithic and static unit. Instead, partitioning knowledge into distinct modular structures is central to organize knowledge bases, from their design to their management, from their maintenance to their use in knowledge sharing. From a different perspective, representing and reasoning about the context respective to the knowledge in distinct modules is essential for their correct exploitation and for reliable and effective reasoning in changing situations. Finally, evolution of knowledge resources, in terms of updates by newly acquired knowledge, is an important factor influencing the meaningfulness of stored knowledge over time. Considering these emerging needs in the Semantic Web / Linked Data community, the 2nd International Workshop on Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution (WOMoCoE 2017) offers the ground to practitioners and researchers to discuss current work on practical and theoretical aspects of modularity, contextuality and evolution of knowledge resources.

The workshop aims to bring together an interdisciplinary audience interested in its topics both from a theoretical and formal point of view (i.e. researchers from philosophy, logic, cognitive science, and linguistics) and from an applicational perspective (i.e. Semantic Web / Linked Data knowledge engineers, adopters from various application domains).

WOMoCoE 2017 will be collocated with ISWC 2017. This October, looking forward to see you in Vienna!
