FOIS 2020 – ANNOUNCEMENT ON PROCEEDINGS

Foremost, the FOIS 2020 organizing committee hopes you are all in good health and not too low spirits in the present situation!

Though it is not possible at the moment to reach a final decision about the “fate” of the conference itself, we can already announce that the FOIS 2020 proceedings will be in any case published as normal by IOS Press, in electronic format with permanent open access, by the planned date of the conference. Thus, the paper submission and selection process will run just as expected. We warmly invite you all again to submit your papers by the (strict) deadline for submission of April 15.

The FOIS 2020 Organizing Committee

MARCH 2020 – 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. Please notice that such calendars are now easily accessible from the right sidebar of the landing page of the IAOA website [3] and from the Events page [4].

Should you have any further suggestions, comments or questions on this service, please let us know by writing to the Association [5] or publicly to the membership [6].

Should you be aware of events that you wish to be added to the calendar, you may write to [7].

Sincerely,
IAOA Executive Council
