“Where am I? Spatial knowledge in ontologies”

Abstract: Many of the things we describe in ontologies are objects or processes located in physical space. Examples of questions with a location or other spatial component include: Where is the start of the trail? What is the address I need to go to? Where again did I put my keys? How large is the property? Where is the conference happening? Where did you see the whale? To capture such spatial information, ontologies provide a variety of mechanisms that range from vague, qualitative descriptions (e.g. “after the bridge”, “on my desk”, “in the Gulf of Maine”), to more precise locations (“947 Broadway”, “Sherbrooke (QC)”) or even quantitative description (“1km East from here”, “400 sq m”). This talk will take the listener through different ways that are available to describe space and locations that range from concepts provided by top-level ontologies to more specialized spatial and geospatial ontologies for the Semantic Web.

“The role of ontologies in data science in support of discovery research”

Abstract: Data science encompasses a wide range of methods which aim to interpret and extract meaning, and new knowledge, from data. For data-driven discovery research, the quality and suitability of the statistical approaches are usually the focus of efforts to derive new knowledge, while ontologies are assumed to be relevant mainly for purposes of standardisation and exchange of existing knowledge, i.e. subsequent to the discovery process. In this presentation, I will discuss the role of ontologies and other pre-existing formal representations of knowledge in the science of making new discoveries from data, why this role is often overlooked, and how this might change as the science of the future becomes better integrated between humans and machines. I will illustrate with some examples taken from different domains: metabolism and behaviour.

Series Description
——————

The IAOA [2] has created ESAO [1], 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) [3] (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.

Organization

Members of the Education Technical Committee of IAOA [2] and among those primarily (in alphabetical order):

* Lucía Gómez Álvarez
* Frank Loebe
* Sandra Lovrenčić
* Cassia Trojahn (Chair)
* Laure Vieu

== 2022 IAOA Executive Council election (for 2023-2024) ==

The elections of the IAOA Executive Council (EC) follow the regulations in the IAOA Statute as of Jun 23, 2016 [6,7].

All EC members come to the end of their terms at the end of 2022. Thus the new Executive Council takes office on January 01, 2023, regularly until December 31, 2024.

By decision of the current EC, nine (9) persons are to be elected, thereby keeping the present number of EC members.

=== EC election schedule ===

– Candidature phase
– Nomination and Discussion opens: Jul 08
– Nomination closes: Jul 27 (AoE = UTC-12)
– Candidates list published: Jul 28
– Campaigning by candidates:
– Continues from Jul 29
– Campaigning closes: Aug 07
– Election
– Ballot opens: 00:01, Aug 08 (CEST)
– Ballot closes: 23:59, Aug 15 (AoE = UTC-12)
– Announcement of election results: before or on Aug 18

=== Phase descriptions ===

For the next few weeks, we foresee three main phases:
Candidature, Campaigning, and Election, as follows.

==== A – Candidature phase (from July 08 to July 27) ====

At least two members (a proposer and at least one seconder, none of whom should be the nominee) are required in order to make a nomination. The members making the nomination shall ensure that they, as well as the nominee, are current members of the association, and that the nominee shall accept the nomination.

*PLEASE START NOW IN MAKING YOUR NOMINATIONS,* by means of a message posted to [8] iaoa-member at ovgu.de and specifying the proposer, the seconder(s), the nominee, and optionally some motivations and/or a candidate’s position statement (which can be circulated afterwards).

Nominations can be freely discussed on the members’ mailing list [8,9] from the nomination time to the end of the campaigning phase.

==== B – Campaigning phase (continuing from July 29 to August 07) ====

Campaigning can actually start with the first candidate nomination, i.e., during the candidature phase. Once that phase is closed, there is still over a week available for active campaigning and discussion on the members’ mailing list [8,9].

==== C – Election phase (from August 08 to August 15) ====

In this period you will be asked to vote for nine Executive Council candidates. Please be so kind as to participate in the vote even if you decide to abstain, so we can count you among the participants. The more participants, the stronger the result of the election will be!

The list of candidates and their position statements will be made available through the IAOA Election wiki page [1].

Results will be announced on the mailing list [9], the assembly page [1], and during the hybrid Assembly session at JOWO [2,3] on Aug 18.

**Program**

* 10:00-10:30 EDT / 14:00-14:30 UTC / 16:00-16:30 CEST/SAST

Roberta Ferrario
Institute for Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the CNR,
Laboratory for Applied Ontology, Trento, Italy

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.

* 10:30-11:00 EDT / 14:30-15:00 UTC / 16:30-17:00 CEST/SAST

Paweł Garbacz
John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Poland

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.

**Series Description**

The IAOA [2] has created ESAO [1], 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) [3] (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.

**Organization**
Members of the Education Technical Committee of IAOA [2] and among those primarily (in alphabetical order):

* Lucía Gómez Álvarez
* Frank Loebe
* Sandra Lovrenčić
* Cassia Trojahn (Chair)
* Laure Vieu
