Call for FOIS 2014 hosting proposals

Since its inception, the International Conference on Formal Ontology in 
Information Systems (FOIS conference series) has explored the multiple 
perspectives on the notion of ontology that have arisen from such 
diverse research communities as philosophy, logic, computer science, 
cognitive science, linguistics, and various scientific domains.

Last two previous FOIS conferences were held in 2012 in Graz 
(http://www.kr-med.org/icbofois2012/fois.htm) and in 2010 in Toronto 

The International Association for Ontology and its Applications (IAOA, 
http://www.iaoa.org/) is soliciting proposals for the location of the 
Eighth International Conference on Formal Ontology and Information 
Systems (FOIS) to be held in 2014.

Proposals should include a description of the conference venue, the 
availability of local sponsorship, proposed dates, and a preliminary 
budget. Possible co-location with related conferences will also be 
considered as a factor in the final decision.
The IAOA has adopted the policy to take all risks and benefits for the 
FOIS conferences while encouraging sponsors to take part of the risks.

Please send proposals to laure.vieu at irit.fr by October 31, 2012.

Laure Vieu
IAOA Executive Council
FOIS 2014 Conference Chair
