Explicit rich representations of domain knowledge, models, processes, historical development, and argumentation are important to support e-science, e-social science and digital humanities research. Ontologies define concept hierarchies and identify important types of relations between concepts as well as entities of interest. However, to support e-research as well as real applications, ontologies need to build on metadata and linked data to cover representation of complex structures and systems, dynamic models and processes, flow of temporal events, as well as discourse structure, evolution of knowledge, argumentation and information across types of documents and media.
This workshop will explore frameworks for ontological representation with rich semantics, and applications in diverse knowledge domains such as biology and medicine, humanities and art, law, systems analysis and design, clinical decision support systems, etc.
The Workshop is open to academics, researchers, graduate students, librarians and knowledge organization professionals who are doing research and professional work related to knowledge organization, metadata, linked data, ontology, and more complex approaches.
