FOIS 2020 (11th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems)

September 14 - September 17

FOIS 2020 (11th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems)

Update on the event website, as retrieved 17 Apr. 2020.

  • The organisation team of FOIS 2020 is committed to publishing the FOIS proceedings with IOS Press in 2020.
  • FOIS will happen as a face-to-face event in Bolzano when it is safe to travel. Ideally, in September 2020 but otherwise at a later date in 2021.
  • Physical attendance of authors of accepted papers at FOIS will be optional.

“The advent of complex information systems that rely on robust, coherent and formal representations of their subject matter, has led to the exploitation of ontological analysis and ontology-based representation. The systematic study of such analysis and representation is at the center of the modern discipline of formal ontology, which is a general theory of the types of entities and relations making up domains of interest.”

“Researchers in many domains engage with formal ontology to provide a solid foundation for their work. Common application areas include conceptual modeling, database design, knowledge engineering and management, software engineering, organizational modeling, artificial intelligence, robotics, computational linguistics, the life sciences, bioinformatics and scientific research in general, geographic information science, information retrieval, library and information science, and the Semantic Web.”

“The FOIS conference is a meeting point for all researchers with an interest in formal ontology. The conference encourages new high quality submissions on both theoretical issues and concrete applications. As in previous years, FOIS 2020 aims to be a nexus of interdisciplinary research and communication.”
