Hosting FOIS

Since its inception, the International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems (FOIS conference series) has explored the multiple perspectives on the notion of ontology that have arisen from such diverse research communities as philosophy, logic, computer science, cognitive science, linguistics, and various scientific domains.

FOIS takes place every two years.  It includes various satellite activities, among which the series of Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO, since 2015), the Interdisciplinary Summer School on Ontological Analysis (since 2012; see the 2018 edition), and the Early Career Symposium for young researchers.
