October 2017 Newsletter

Dear IAOA members,

herewith you receive the October newsletter on events that cover research in ontology (conferences, workshops, etc.) or are associated with IAOA (e.g., meetings of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Committees). These newsletters shall inform you about upcoming events and their corresponding deadlines. They may also include short reports of interesting past events, for example, by IAOA members who attended them. The planned frequency of the newsletters ranges from monthly to bi-monthly. This service complements the calendars of events [1] and deadlines [2], which we run for gathering event information.

Should you have any further suggestions, comments or questions on this service, please let us know by writing to the Association [3] or publicly to the membership [4].

Sincerely,
IAOA Executive Council
