The 9th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems, FOIS 2016


About Workshops at FOIS

Workshops at FOIS are events whose scientific program is independently established by the workshop organizers. The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop and reviewing and selecting the contributions. Workshops can be events that provide a forum for the discussion of topics that may complement the main conference or focus on specialized sub-topics related to formal ontology and its application in information systems.
