Workshop on Ontology and Rich Semantics: Frameworks and Applications

26th Nov. 2018, Singapore


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 hierarchies of entities and identify important types of relations between entities. However, to support e-research as well as real applications, ontologies need to go beyond simple semantics to include 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 systems analysis and design, molecular biology, clinical decision support systems, linguistics, law, history, biography, etc.
