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

Call for papers:

We plan to welcome contributions from different areas such as (philosophy of) economics, business, finance, accounting, economic sociology, and enterprise modeling, to promote the discussion on the ontological foundation of fundamental concepts in economics. The 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.

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to:

- Ontology of economic concepts: e.g. preference relations, utility functions, money, risk, strategy, rationality, market, economic agent, competition, cooperation.
- Value, value ascription, value production, value (co-)creation.
- Economic contracts and economic exchanges.
- Social norms in economic environments.
- Economic roles and responsibilities of collective entities: organisations, companies, enterprises, social groups, customers, corporate agents, institutions.
- Economic aspects of enterprise modelling: capabilities, strategy, marketing, accounting.
- Decision procedures in economic organisations.
- Finance and Markets.
- Services, service science, product-service systems.
- Business Ontology.

- Extensions of foundational ontologies to include social and economic institutions.
