February 2018 Newsletter

Dear IAOA members,

 

herewith you receive the February 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
