AISB event Bulletin Item



 The workshop is associated with the 7th International Symposium:
 Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AAIA'12), that is  a part of Federated 
Conference on Computer Science and Information  Systems (FedCSIS), to be held in Wrocaw, 
Poland, 9-12 September 2012,  under auspices of Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education

 Workshop description
 Nowadays, computational ontologies are commonly used as conceptual  models of information systems 
(IS) created in different domains, such as: engineering, law, social sciences, biomedicine, 
humanities,  business  enterprise, geography, library science etc. They are used both in the  
design and the exploitation phases of the ISs life. However, what can  be largely observed, the 
main drawback of the majority of such  ontologies is their insufficient ontic expressiveness and 
lack of a  good  foundations. Thus, the question arises: is the ontological engineering  mature 
enough to apply the sophisticated theoretical solutions and  propose methodologies and tools 
enabling to create both practical and  expressive ontologies for everyday use? We call such 
ontologies shortly: well-founded.

 The aim of the workshop is to gather researchers and practitioners  interested in answering the 
posed question. Particularly, we single out  three main scientific areas, for which research 
feedback is expected.

 The first domain of interest addresses the design and application of  ontological structures that 
are strongly influenced by philosophy, but  are still reasonably applicable. The area includes 
foundational  approach  driven ontology creation strategies for concrete domains and  applications.

 The linguistic investigations concerning national and multi-language  semantic lexicons provide, 
among other resources, also the top-level  ontologies. The second considered research area 
addresses the problem  of  using such ontologies (possibly accompanied by other linguistic
 resources) to build well-founded and tractable domain conceptual  models.

 Most ontology-building approaches proposed by computer engineers employ  algorithimcs (i.e. 
data mining, machine learning etc.). Even though  they  benefit from the automation at the same 
time they suffer from the bad(ontic) quality of obtained ontologies. Thus, issues concerned with  
bridging the gap between bottom-up automatically engineered ontologies  and foundational/top-level 
manually created ones, constitute the third  scientific area we are strongly interested in.
