Apologies for cross-postings.

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.

This year, FOIS will be in Annecy, France (http://www.iaoa.org/fois/2016.html).
The two previous FOIS conferences were held in 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, and 2012 in Graz  (http://www.kr-med.org/icbofois2012/fois.htm).

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 2018.

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 Oliver Kutz (Oliver.Kutz at unibz.it) by June 21, 2016.

Oliver Kutz
FOIS 2018 Conference Chair
