Since its inception, the International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems (FOIS conference series) has explored multiple perspectives on applied ontology arising from diverse research communities such as philosophy, logic, computer science, cognitive science, linguistics, and various scientific domains.
Originally a biannual event, since 2021 FOIS now takes place every year and includes several satellite activities: the Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO, since 2015), the Early Career Symposium for young researchers, and often the Interdisciplinary Summer School on Ontological Analysis (ISAO, since 2012).
The IAOA welcomes bids for hosting FOIS at any time. To submit a bid, please complete the hosting template (in MS-Word or PDF) linked below. For any inquiries and to send your proposal, write to info [at] iaoa [dot] org.
