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.
IAOA Executive Council
FOIS 2014 Conference Chair
