Call for Papers

International Workshop on Ontologies for Social Services (OSS2022)
Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO) 2022. The workshop will be held on
15-19 August 2022 in Jönköping University, Jönköpin, Sweden.

Semantic Technologies provide a formal way to represent knowledge in ways that are interpretable by computers and a related technology stack to store, integrate and query information semantically.

The purpose of the OSS workshop is to foster communication and strengthen interdisciplinary work at the intersection of semantic technologies and social services. We invite researchers from the Knowledge Representation, Semantic Web, Machine Learning, and Social Science communities to submit theoretical contributions, novel algorithms, artefacts, and tools related to social services. We welcome reports from Social Work practitioners on their experiences using semantic-enabled technologies, best practices, and insights.

For additional information, please contact [email protected].

- Submissions Due: May 23rd, 2022
- Notifications Due: June 15, 2022.
- Camera Ready: July 22, 2022.
- Workshop: August 15-19, 2022

We welcome submissions from researchers and practitioners working at the intersection of semantic technologies and social services, and social service practitioners developing ontological artifacts.
