ICCS 2020 (25th International Conference on Conceptual Structures)
September 18 - September 21
This event was originally scheduled to take place in Bozen-Bolzano, Italy, 18-21 Sept. 2020. While this at time of writing (17 Apr. 2020) this is still the information provided on the event website, the website of the event with which this conference is associated has added this notice.
We would like to provide an update to potential BOSK authors and participants about our plans and response to the coronavirus crisis. Since the situation is changing rapidly, detailed plans for September cannot be announced at this point. We would, however, like to reassure everyone that BOSK 2020 will take place in some form, and several conferences including EKAW 2020, ICBO 2020, and FOIS 2020 have already confirmed that papers accepted to these conferences will be published in the respective proceedings sticking to the original timeframe. Therefore, all plans for JOWO workshops remain in place at this point as well.
We will be keeping open the possibility of an in-person meeting as long as possible, in the hopes that the situation will improve fast enough over the summer. But of course, the first priority will be the health of BOSK participants. Therefore we will be developing backup plans for (partial) virtual (online) conferences. We will be collecting advice from other conferences that are going virtual, and will be working out the best ways to offer talks, workshops, summer school sessions, and tutorials without losing too much of the social aspects that are so important to scientific conferences.
“The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures (ICCS) focus on the formal analysis and representation of conceptual knowledge, at the crossroads of artificial intelligence, human cognition, computational linguistics, and related areas of computer science and cognitive science. The ICCS conferences evolved from a series of seven annual workshops on conceptual graphs, starting with an informal gathering hosted by John F. Sowa in 1986. Recently, graph-based knowledge representation and reasoning (KRR) paradigms are getting more and more attention. With the rise of quasi-autonomous AI, graph-based representations provide a vehicle for making machine cognition explicit to its human users. This year ICCS 2020 is a part of “Bolzano Summer of Knowledge” which will take place in Bolzano, Italy during the month of September, 2020. Scholars, students and industry participants from different disciplines will meet for several weeks of conferences, workshops, summer schools, and public events, to engage with the broad topics, issues and challenges related to knowledge in the 21st century.”
