                             Call for Papers

      2nd International Workshop on Ontology Modularity,
          Contextuality, and Evolution (WoMoCoE 2017)

                   Co-located with:
   16th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2017),
            October 21-25, 2017, Vienna, Austria

In the Semantic Web and Linked Data community, knowledge is rarely
considered a monolithic and static unit. Instead, partitioning knowledge
into distinct modular structures is central to organize knowledge bases.
Moreover, representing and reasoning about context is essential for correct
exploitation of modules and reasoning in changing situations. Finally,
evolution of knowledge resources is an important factor influencing the
meaningfulness of stored knowledge over time.
Considering these emerging needs, the 2nd International Workshop on
Ontology Modularity, Contextuality, and Evolution (WOMoCoE 2017) offers the
ground 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 and from an
applicational perspective.

IMPORTANT DATES (tentative):

Abstracts deadline:        17 July 2017
Paper deadline:        21 July 2017
Notification:            24 August 2017
Camera ready:        14 September 2017
Workshop dates:        21 or 22 October 2017 (date TBA)


The workshop comprises, but is not strictly limited to, the following

= Modularity in the Semantic Web and Linked Data resources =
- Modular ontology and knowledge representation languages
- Modularity in reasoning: incremental and distributed reasoning
- Modularity in ontology engineering: ontology modules reuse and publishing
- Algorithms and implementations for module extraction
- Ontology design patterns for modularity
- Modularity in ontology and data visualization
- Modularity in SW/LD applications
- Theoretical and cognitive aspects of modularity

= Representing and facilitating context in the Semantic Web and Linked Data
resources =
- Representing context in SW/LD resources
- Ontologies for modelling contextual information
- Capturing contextuality in SW/LD standards
- Reasoning with contextual information and metadata
- Matching, combining and disambiguating knowledge resources with contexts
- Contextuality in SW/LD applications
- Formal aspects of context acquisition, representation and interpretation.

= Evolution of the Semantic Web and Linked Data resources =
- Definitions and algorithms for belief change in ontologies, and SW/LD
- Reasoning and planning with evolving ontologies and data sources
- Evolution in ontology management: merging, versioning, alignment,
- Fault diagnosis and repair in ontologies and data sources
- LD archiving and versioning
- Ontology transformation and ontology transformation patterns
- Evolution of SW/LD in applications


Submission of regular and position papers is possible:
- Regular papers (12 pages in length including references) include research
reports and surveys.
- Position papers (6 pages in length including references) are intended for
presentation of interesting new open issues and challenges, and opinions on
the status of the field.

WOMoCoE 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. An extended abstract will be required and included in
the proceedings for papers presented elsewhere.

All papers must be formatted using the Springer LNCS style and submitted in
PDF via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=womocoe2017
