*****CALL FOR PAPERS*****:

First international workshop on Ordinal Methods for Knowledge
Representation and Capture (OrMeKR) in conjunction with The Twelfth
International Conference on Knowledge Capture (K-CAP 2023)

December 5th, 2023, Pensacola, Florida, USA

1.1 Abstract and Scope:

The concept of order (i.e., partial ordered sets) is predominant for
perceiving and organizing our physical and social environment, for
inferring meaning and explanation from observation, and for searching
and rectifying decisions. Compared to metric methods, however, the
number of (purely) ordinal methods for capturing knowledge from data
is rather small, although in principle they may allow for more
comprehensible explanations. The reason for this could be the limited
availability of computing resources in the last century, which would
have been required for (purely) ordinal computations. Hence, typically
relational and especially ordinal data are first embedded in metric
spaces for learning. Therefore, in this workshop we want to collect
and discuss ordinal methods for capturing and representing knowledge,
their role in inference and explainability, and their possibilities
for knowledge visualization and communication. We want to reflect on
these topics in a broad sense, i.e., as a tool to arrange, compare and
compute ontologies or concept hierarchies, as a feature in learning
and capturing knowledge, and as a measure to evaluate model

1.3 Important Dates (all dates are AoE)

• Submission: October 15, 2023
• Author Notification: October 29, 2023
• Camera Ready: November 12, 2023

1.4 Submission Guidlines and Conditions

OrMeKR will focus on contributions to the theory and application of
ordinal methods in the realm of knowledge representation and
capture. The workshop welcomes *report papers* (summaries of past work
concerning ordinal methods), *research papers* (novel results),
*position papers* (discussing issues concerning the usefulness of
ordinal methods in KR), and *challenge papers* (describing limitations
and open research questions).

• Submissions should have a minimum of 5 pages and shall not exceed 8
• Submission must use the provided CEUR Template:
• The workshop is not double-blind, hence authors should list their
names and affiliations on the submission.
• Accepted Papers will be published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings
corresponding to K-CAP.
• Authors of accepted workshop papers will present their work in
plenary sessions during the workshop on December 5th.
• Submissions should be emailed to: *[ormekr2023@cs.uni-kassel.de]*
