Early Career Symposium (FOIS 2016)
9th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems


ECS Application Deadline:	March 4th, 2016 *extended*
ECS Notification:		April 15th, 2016
Early Career Symposium:	July 8th, 2016


This event is designed to provide an opportunity for graduate students to present their work at one of the leading conferences in formal ontology, and to obtain first-hand feedback and mentorship from senior researchers in the field. It will also allow participants to network with other early career scientists in the broad field of ontology. Topics of interest include all subject matter relevant to the interdisciplinary field of ontology, as outlined in the Call for Papers.


The ECS will be held as a poster session during the main FOIS conference. The poster session will be opened by a lightning talks session, during which each participant will have 3 minutes to advertise their work to the general audience of the conference. Each participant will be assigned a senior researcher as a mentor, who will provide substantial feedback to their work. Moreover, a PhD Lounge will allow early career scientists to meet and discuss their work.


The ECS is open to students at the Masters and Doctoral Level who have not defended their thesis before the ECS Submission deadline. Candidates can apply by submitting the following by the submission deadline: a paper describing their research project (see the template here) and a current CV. Submissions will be reviewed by selected members of the FOIS Program Committee. Submission should be made via https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fois2016 (select the 'Early Career Symposium' track).

Accepted submissions will be published in a CEUR proceedings volume (ISSN 1613-0073, DBLP-indexed) together with papers from the FOIS Demo Track and the FOIS Ontology Competition. All participants must register for the main conference. Candidates can apply for scholarships made available by the IAOA.
