2nd Joint Workshop on Knowledge Evolution and Ontology Dynamics (EvoDyn 2012)

External Event

PlanetData partners, Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH), Greece, co-organizes and supports the 2nd Joint Workshop on Knowledge Evolution and Ontology Dynamics (EvoDyn 2012). The event will be co-located with the 11th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2012) and held in Boston, US on November 11th - 12th, 2012.

The workshop focuses on analysis of trends and change in formal descriptions (i.e., ontologies), but also in associated raw sources of knowledge (scientific publications, unstructured or semi-structured web content, traditional data stores, e-mail or on-line discussion threads, etc.). We are especially interested in research targeted on various states of knowledge evolution, such as (a) conflicts, (b) consolidation, (c) discovery, (d) paradigm shifts, and (e) breakthroughs. One crucial objective of better understanding these different states may be to study directly the underlying causes and dynamics needed to generate discoveries and breakthroughs. We will only be able to facilitate and possibly also generate such desirable situations if we can understand the process of how knowledge evolves. The process of how knowledge in a field grows and changes, crystallizes, and fractures are all areas of interest of this workshop.

Please join and submit your paper!
