Energy, Materials and Sustainability Ontology (Emsusto) Workshop 2024

About Emsusto

The Energy, Materials and Sustainability Ontology (Emsusto) Workshop 2024 is part of JOWO 2024, which is held at University of Twente 15-19 July 2024. It provides a venue for presenting ontologies and their applications in the domains of renewable energy, materials and sustainability. The primary goal of this workshop is to offer researchers and practitioners in these domains an opportunity to meet and exchange experiences in developing and using ontologies, and to provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge and best practices for ontologies in these domains. We welcome participation also from those who have just started to apply ontologies in these domains or who are are not yet using ontologies in these domains but are interested in learning more.


The scope of the workshop includes any ontology and any application of an ontology related to renewable energy and sustainability. This includes (but is not limited to):


Submissions should be at least 5 pages and at most 9 pages.

Papers should be submitted non-anonymously in PDF format in compliance with the new 1-column CEUR-ART Style. Templates and more information are available here.

Papers are submitted via Easychair. The Easychair submission page can be found at JOWO-Easychair-Submission (select the track “ Energy and Sustainability Ontology Workshop”).

All accepted papers will be published as part of a joint JOWO proceedings volume at CEUR. (Previous JOWO proceedings are availble here: JOWO 2019, JOWO 2020, JOWO 2021, JOWO 2022).

Evaluation Criteria

Papers for this workshop should be related to (1) a novel ontology for the domain of energy, materials or sustainability or (2) systems and related methods that use ontologies a meaningful way in reasearch or applications related to topics of renewable energy, materials or sustainability.

(1) Publications that focus on a specific ontology must provide additional value that enables a reader to understand the represented domain and specific design decisions. These publications should address the following points:

(2) For system-focused submissions, the submissions should include

Reviews will consider the novelty, significance and soundness of the respective ontology or system regarding the points discussed above. All ontologies that are discussed in these publications should be publicly available.
