Shape, Form, and Structure are some of the most elusive notions within diverse disciplines ranging from humanities (literature, arts) to sciences (chemistry, biology, physics etc.) and within these from the formal (like mathematics) to the empirical disciplines (such as engineering and cognitive science). Even within domains such as computer science and artificial intelligence, these notions are replete with commonsense meanings (think of everyday perception and communication), and formalisations of the semantics and reasoning about shape, form, and structure are often ad hoc. Whereas several approaches have been proposed within the aforementioned disciplines to study the notions of shape, form and structure from di↵erent standpoints, a comprehensive formal treatment of these notions is currently lacking and no real interdisciplinary perspective has been put forward. The workshop series SHAPES provides an interdisciplinary platform for the discussion of all topics connected to shape (broadly understood): perspectives from psycho-linguistics, ontology, computer science, mathematics, aesthetics, and cognitiv
