SHAPES at JOWO 2019 Call for Papers
The Shape of Things


Graz, Austria, September 23-25, 2019

The Joint Ontology WOrkshops (JOWO, https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/tpgaCMwG9mH5XLy4ikG6PD?domain=iaoa.org) is a venue of workshops that, together, address a wide spectrum of topics related to ontology research, ranging from Cognitive Science to Knowledge Representation, Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Logic, Philosophy, and Linguistics.

Shape, form and structure are elusive notions and yet are at the core of several disciplines from the humanistic (like literature and the arts) to the scientific (chemistry, biology, physics) and within these from the formal (mathematics, logic) to the empirical (engineering, cognitive science). These notions rely on common-sense meanings, everyday perception and communication practices. Furthermore, formalisations of the semantics and reasoning about shape, form, and structure are typically ad hoc.

The Shapes workshop series is an interdisciplinary platform for the discussion of all topics connected to shape (broadly understood). Perspectives from psycho-linguistics, ontology, computer science, artificial intelligence, mathematics, aesthetics, design science, cognitive science and beyond are welcome to contribute and participate in the workshop.

Special Focus 2019: architecture
Every edition of Shapes adds a special theme to drive attention to particular uses and needs in interesting areas. This edition drives attention to shape, form and structure in architecture. Architecture is an intrinsically interdisciplinary domain that combines art, science and technology, and is rooted in the study of culture, landscape, territory and social practices. In addition to the regular SHAPES topics, we particularly encourage contributions that shed some light on the use of shape, form and structure in and across architectural works and architectural ways of thinking.

We solicit the submission of:

a) extended abstracts of up to 4 pages  (talk only);
b) short papers 5-8 pages, long papers up to 14 pages (for inclusion in JOWO proceedings).
c) pieces of art (music, video, sculpture, scale model...) together with an abstract, or short or long papers (for inclusion in proceedings)

All text submissions must be in PDF format and must follow the IOS Press formatting guidelines, available at


Accepted contributions will appear in the proceedings, which will be published in the IAOA subseries of CEUR.
