    Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO-15)
    -- Episode 1: The Argentine Winter --
Buenos Aires, Argentina, July 25-31, 2015
    in conjunction with IJCAI 2015

    --- First Call for Papers ---
      Submission deadline: April 27, 2015

This first edition of the Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO-15) combines four
exciting ontology-centered workshops at IJCAI-15. Together with ontology
work presented at IJCAI itself, we will transform Buenos Aires for a week
into the largest venue for ontology research of the year.

JOWO-15 is supported by the International Association for Ontology and its
Applications - IAOA. It will feature a series of (shared) invited talks,
paper presentations, and discussions spread across four independent
full-day workshops run over a period of three days:

 Workshop on Formal Ontologies for Artificial Intelligence (FOfAI)
chairs: Stefano Borgo, Oliver Kutz, and Daniele Porello

FOfAI aims to establish a venue for researchers in AI with a strong
interest in applied ontology. In particular, we aim to foster an
interdisciplinary discussion and cross-fertilization among a number of
communities by proposing a venue to exchange foundational, methodological,
and applicative perspectives. The workshop thus encourages submission of
articles on both theoretical, computational, and linguistic issues in the
use of ontologies in AI as well as the concrete use of non-trivial
ontologies in AI systems and applications.
FOfAI is generously sponsored by the Association for Logic, Language and
Information - FoLLI.

 9th Int. Workshop on Modular Ontologies (WoMO 2015)
chairs: Kenneth Baclawski, Torsten Hahmann, Pavel Klinov, Adila Krisnadhi

This workshop brings together researchers from all subareas of AI and from
related disciplines and application domains to discuss latest and current
work on theoretical and practical aspects of modularity in ontologies.
Topics include modularity as enabling technology for knowledge repositories
and collaborative knowledge development environments and as a tool for
reducing the complexity of designing and understanding ontologies, and to
facilitating ontology verification, reasoning, maintenance and integration.

1st Workshop on Belief Change and Non-Monotonic Reasoning in Ontologies and
chairs: Eduardo Fermé, Thomas Meyer and Renata Wassermann

This workshop will bring together researchers working in the areas of
logic-based ontologies, belief change, and database systems, along with
researchers working in relevant areas in non-monotonic reasoning,
commonsense reasoning, and paraconsistent reasoning. Hence the workshop
will facilitate discussions on the application of existing work in belief
change, non-monotonic reasoning, commonsense reasoning, and related areas
on the one hand, to logic-based ontologies and databases on the other.

Ontologies and logic programming for query answering
chairs: Odile Papini, Marie-Laure Mugnier, Laurent Garcia, Salem Benferhat

The aim of this workshop is to bridge knowledge representation and
reasoning in artificial intelligence and web of knowledge communities in
order to encourage the emergence of new solutions for reasoning with
lightweight ontologies. Particular topics include query answering while
taking ontologies into account and non­monotonic reasoning for
inconsistency handling and exception handling and expressing default
negations in ontologies, with a special interest in logic programming for


Paper Submission:  April 27, 2015
Notification:  May 20, 2015
Camera ready: May 30, 2015
Workshop: July, 2015


Please refer to the individual workshops for detailed lists of topics
appropriate for each workshop.

Submissions can be long papers (up to 8 pages) or short papers (up to 4
pages), formatted using the AAAI style (available from
http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php), submitted in PDF
format no later than the submission deadline.

All submission are handled through Easychair. Use
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jowo15 for submissions to any of
the first three workshops, and select the track that corresponds to the
workshop most appropriate for your work. For the last workshop “Ontologies
and logic programming for query answering”, submissions are handled
separately through https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ontolp2015

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the program committee
of the individual workshops. Accepted papers will be made available in the
form of a joint workshop proceedings. For additional publication plans
check the individual workshops.
