FMKD@JOWO intends to create a space of confluence and a forum for
discussion for researchers interested in knowledge diversity in a wide
sense, including diversity in terms of diverging perspectives, different
beliefs, semantic heterogeneity and others. The importance of understanding
and handling the different forms of diversity that manifest between
knowledge formalisations (ontologies, knowledge bases, or knowledge graphs)
is widely recognised and has led to the proposal of a variety of systems of
representation, tackling overlapping aspects of this phenomenon.

Besides understanding the phenomenon and considering formal models for the
representation of knowledge diversity, we are interested in the variety of
reasoning problems that emerge in this context, including jointly reasoning
with possibly conflicting sources, interpreting knowledge from alternative
viewpoints, consolidating the diversity as uncertainty, reasoning by means
of argumentation between the sources and pursuing knowledge aggregations
among others.

A non-exhaustive list of topics of interest for the workshop:

Philosophical and cognitive analysis of knowledge diversity.
Formal models for the representation of knowledge diversity.
Ontological approaches capturing multiple perspectives and viewpoints.
Context and concept formation in such systems.
Consistency (or not) in multi-perspective systems; assessment and
mitigation of inconsistencies.
Communication between knowledge-diverse systems.
Argumentation-based approaches for dealing with inconsistency
Aggregation of diverse or inconsistent knowledge; judgement aggregation.
Uncertainty in the context of knowledge diversity.
Applications of formal models of knowledge diversity.
