SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
Artificial Intelligence meets Web of Knowledge
AIWK-2014
http://aiwk.lsis.org

The international workshop Artificial Intelligence meets Web of Knowledge
(AIWK-2014) is affiliated with the European Conference on Artificial Intelli-
gence (ECAI-2014, http://www.ecai2014.org) and will take place in Prague,
Czech Republic, august 19, 2014.

Workshop description
The aim of this workshop is to bridge the gap be-
tween Knowledge Representation & Reasoning and Web of Knowledge research
communities, and to address the problem of querying large scale multisource
heterogeneous information. This problem is at the core of the ASPIQ project
(http://aspiq.lsis.org/aspiq/?q=en), funded by ANR (French National Research
Agency). It is centered on three main aspects:
• Processing multisource information
• Processing heterogeneous information
• Performing large scale reasoning
These issues are relevant to the Semantic Web. The ASPIQ project studies
formalisms allowing to represent ontological knowledge, with exceptions in
taxonomies and uncertainty on concepts. From a large amount of data distributed
on the Web, expressed in different languages, the objective is to merge infor-
mation via a common formalism, which provides a global point of view, and to
query this common representation to obtain more “intelligent” answers, without
loosing efficiency.
Accordingly, this workshop is dedicated to the discussion of these issues. It
aims at encouraging collaboration of researchers from both communities. We
are primarily interested in issues related to belief change, merging and
querying knowledge bases expressed in tractable fragments of ontological languages.
Moreover, for implementation issues, we are primarily interested in logic pro-
gramming approaches such as Answer Set Programming or extensions of Data-
log.

Topics
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• Reasoning with tractable fragments of OWL languages
• Belief change & tractable description logics
• Reasoning on the web of data
• Ontology-based data-access
• Ontological query answering
• Reasoning and querying with distributed knowledge sources
• Semantic access control and reasoning with profiles
• Scalable and anytime reasoning on big data
• Belief change & ASP
• Datalog+/- and existential rules
• ASP & description logics
• ASP & uncertainty
• First-order ASP
