Cognition And OntologieS

CAOS III: September 17-18th, 2018, Cape Town, South Africa

Call for papers - CAOS

CAOS is a returning workshop with the purpose to bridge the gap between the cognitive sciences and research on ontologies. Thus, to create a venue for researchers interested in interdisciplinary aspects of knowledge representation. More specifically CAOS addresses the difficult question of how key cognitive phenomena and concepts (and the involved terminology) can be found across language, psychology and reasoning and how this can be formally and ontologically understood, analysed and represented.

We welcome submissions on topics related to the ontology of hypothesised building blocks of cognition (such as image schemas, affordances, and related notions) and of cognitive capacities (such as concept invention, language acquisition), as well as system-demonstrations modelling these capacities in application settings. This year CAOS is also merged with CEX: Comprehensibility and Explanation in AI and ML.
The CEX inclusion of CAOS addresses fundamental questions for the nature of "comprehensibility" and "explanation" in an AI and ML context from a theoretical and an applied perspective. Research into philosophical approximations to what an explanation in AI and ML is (or can be) or how the comprehensibility of an intelligent system can formally be defined will be presented next to work addressing practical questions of how to assess a systems comprehensibility from a psychological perspective, or how to design and build better explainable AI and ML systems.
CAOS and CEX aim to bring together work from different communities, including core areas in AI and ML, ontology, cognitive science, psychology and HCI, as well as applied research from industry.

All accepted papers will be part of the JOWO proceedings. See LINK for previous proceedings.
