Call for Papers: FOUST VI - LAST CALL


6th Workshop on Foundational Ontology (FOUST VI)


August 15 - 19, 2022

Organised as part of the 8th Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO 2022) held in
Jönköping University, Jönköping, Sweden.



Workshop Topics


Foundational ontologies are attempts to systematise those categories of
thought or reality which are common to all or almost all subject matters.
Commonly considered examples of such categories include “object”,
“quality”, “function”, “role”, “process”, “event”, “time”, and “place”.
Amongst existing foundational ontologies, there is both a substantial
measure of agreement and some dramatic disagreements. There is currently no
uniform consensus concerning how a foundational ontology should be
organised, how far its “reach” should be (e.g., is the distinction between
agentive and non-agentive entities sufficiently fundamental to be included
here?), and even what role it should play in relation to more specialised
domain ontologies. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for
researchers and stakeholders to present work on specific foundational
ontologies as well as their relations to each other and to the wider
ontological enterprise, but also topics related to foundational questions
in ontology engineering.

Relevant topics include:


   Changes to existing foundational ontologies/extensions by new modules

   Novel research on any specific category or topic that is usually covered
   by foundational ontology (e.g., functions, roles, time, mereology,
   ontological dependence, constitution)

   Theoretical results about specific foundational ontologies (e.g.,
   consistency proofs, modularizations, etc.)

   Application results of foundational ontologies in AI, the Semantic Web,
   Linguistics, etc.

   Conceptual and formal comparisons and alignments of foundational

   Relationship and alignment of foundational ontologies and domain




We encourage two types of contributions:


   Full research paper: submitted papers must have between 10 and 12 pages
   + an additional page for references (if necessary).

   Short paper: submitted papers must have between 5 and 6 pages + an
   additional page for references (if necessary).

Papers should be submitted non-anonymously in PDF format in compliance with
the new 1-column CEUR-ART Style, which can be found at
