1st International Workshop on ONTOLOGY OF ECONOMICS.
September 17-18 2018, Cape Town, South Africa
Part of The Joint Ontology Workshops JOWO 2018 @ FOIS 2018
Understanding the ontological
nature of economic concepts and
institutions is crucial
for providing principled modelling in many important domains such as
enterprise modelling, business processes, and social ontology.
A significant number of fundamental concepts that are ubiquitous
in economics have only recently been
approached from an ontological perspective.
For instance: value, risk, preference, utility, capability, good, service,
exchange, transaction, competition.
We offer a venue to
gather the recent contributions to this important topic. We welcome submissions from different areas such as
(philosophy of) economics, decision theory, social choice theory, business, finance, accounting, economic
sociology, and enterprise modeling, to promote the discussion on the
ontological foundation of fundamental concepts in economics.
workshop encourages the submission of articles on both theoretical and
methodological issues in the use of ontologies for modelling economic
concepts and institutions, as well as articles presenting concrete use
of ontologies in application to economic domains.
