The Fourth International Workshop on

Contexts and Ontologies (C&O-2008)

hosted by the 18th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence ECAI-08
July 21, 2008 - Patras, Greece

Context-based representation and reasoning is a vibrant and interdisciplinary research area spanning from Artificial Intelligence and other areas of Computer Science, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, the Organizational Sciences, Philosophy, and Psychology.

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers in AI, KR, KM, semantic web, MAS and other related fields who are interested in theoretical and practical aspects of context representation and reasoning.
