March 2018 Newsletter

Dear IAOA members,

herewith you receive the March 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
