First ESAO Webinar

First ESAO Webinar
November 9th, 11:00-12:00 EST, 17:00-18:00 CET

DESCRIPTION
———–

The IAOA has created the Educational Series on Applied Ontology (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 in 2023). ESAO is complementary in format and its overall approach. The goal is to provide a combination of archive educational material (e.g. short video lectures) and a series of webinars for presenting and discussing that material.

The ESAO Series is open for all and welcomes students, researchers and practitioners alike. The launch event for this new series was held at the second Bolzano Summer of Knowledge (BoSK 2021), with seven webinar sessions according to the new format on a single day.

–> The first of the regular webinar sessions will be held on
November 9th, 11:00-12:00 EST, 17:00-18:00 CET, online.

No registration needed. The Zoom link for participating is:

https://univ-tlse2.zoom.us/j/99443318113?pwd=djcreEZHaWE5a1lSclNlWlR5YnpCUT09

Meeting ID: 994 4331 8113, Passcode: 410885

 

PROGRAM
——-

* 11:00-11:30 EST, 17:00-17:30 CET

Adrien Barton, Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT) – CNRS, France
“Ontological realism: A philosophical overview”

Abstract:
Some applied ontologies explicitly adhere to a position named “ontological realism”. In this presentation, I will locate “ontological realism” within the landscape of the various forms of realism that have been proposed in metaphysics and philosophy of science, among which Platonic realism, Aristotelian realism, scientific realism, entity realism and structural realism.

* 11:30-12:00 EST, 17:30-18:00 CET

Lars Vogt, Leibniz Information Center for Science & Technology (TIB), Germany
“Boundaries and natural units”

Abstract:
I will present the concept of bona fide and fiat boundaries and review the problems involved with this approach for demarcating natural units, with examples from the life sciences, focussing on issues revolving around granularity and frames of reference. I will then introduce an alternative approach that focusses on the concept of causal unity.

BOSK 2021 – CALL FOR REGISTRATION

Registration for events in the scope of BOSK 2021, including FOIS 2021, ICBO2021, JOWO 2021, and  ESAO 2021, is now open!

Please visit:

Note that:

  • Registration is mandatory to take part in the events;
  • Online participation is free (except for the paper registration fee at FOIS 2021);
  • Early registration ends on August 27th.

ESAO Launch Event @ FOIS 2021 – CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Description

The IAOA has worked on a new educational effort under the name Educational Series on Applied Ontology (ESAO) that shall be suited for learning about topics of Applied Ontology, primarily established basics and foundations. The series is inspired by the Interdisciplinary Schools on Applied Ontology (ISAO) (next edition in 2023), but — in times of the Corona pandemic — it is complementary in format and its overall approach. The basic idea is a combination of an archive of educational material (for the beginning, short video lectures) and a series of webinars for presenting and discussing that material.

The second Bolzano Summer of Knowledge (BoSK 2021) includes a Launch Event for this new series, which offers a number of webinar sessions according to the new format on a single day.

The ESAO Launch Day will be held in hybrid format on Sep 10, 2021 (Friday), preceding the FOIS conference (Sep 13-16, 2021) [5] in Bozen-Bolzano, Italy. Hybrid means that the experts and the audience can join locally or remotely. The physical event will take place at the Kolpinghaus Bozen, Largo Adolph Kolping 3, Bolzano, Italy.

The Launch Day as well as the overall ESAO Series is open for and welcomes students, researchers and practitioners alike.

July-August 2021 — NEWSLETTER

Dear IAOA members,

Herewith you receive the July-August newsletter on events that cover research in ontology (conferences, workshops, etc.) or are associated with IAOA (e.g., meetings of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Committees). These newsletters inform you about upcoming events and their corresponding deadlines. They may also include short reports of interesting past events, for example, by IAOA members who attended them. The planned frequency of the newsletters ranges from monthly to bi-monthly. This service complements the calendars of events [1] and deadlines [2], which we run for gathering event information. Please notice that such calendars are now easily accessible from the right sidebar of the landing page of the IAOA website [3] and from the Events page [4].

Should you have any further suggestions, comments or questions on this service, please let us know by writing to the Association [5] or publicly to the membership [6].

Should you be aware of events that you wish to be added to the calendar, you may write to [7].

Sincerely,

IAOA Executive Council
