Title: “The theory of variable embodiment and the modeling of organisational change”
Abstract: How can organisations survive not only the substitution of members, but also other dramatic changes, like that of the norms regulating their activities, the goals they plan to achieve, or the system of roles that compose them? These are some of the classical questions an ontology of organisations should be able to answer. I will briefly present Kit Fine’s notions of rigid and variable embodiment and propose an integration aimed at addressing the issue of re-identification of organisations through change.

Title: “Applied ontologies as evolving artifacts. Why and how should you take care of managing ontology development?”
Abstract: If you think of an applied ontology as a dynamic informational artefact that is being developed over time, then you might want to consider a framework which would allow you to track the history of its lifecycle, test the changes it undergoes, and control its quality. These challenges are similar to challenges faced in bog-standard software development. In my presentation, I will show how the well-known software tools, including Continuous Integration platforms, version control systems, testing platforms, and review workflows, may address these challenges.
The IAOA  has created ESAO , a new educational effort directed towards topics of Applied Ontology, primarily established basics and foundations.
The series is inspired by the Interdisciplinary Schools on Applied Ontology (ISAO)  (whose next edition will be held in 2023). ESAO is complementary in format and its overall approach. The goal is to provide a combination of an archive of educational material (e.g., short video lectures) and a series of webinars for presenting and discussing that material.
Members of the Education Technical Committee of IAOA  and among those primarily (in alphabetical order):
* Lucía Gómez Álvarez
* Frank Loebe
* Sandra Lovrenčić
* Cassia Trojahn (Chair)
* Laure Vieu
