CALL FOR HOSTING PROPOSALS: FOIS 2014 (Formal Ontology in Information Systems)


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.

Last two previous FOIS conferences were held in 2012 in Graz
(http://www.kr-med.org/icbofois2012/fois.htm) and in 2010 in Toronto 
(http://fois2010.mie.utoronto.ca/index.php).

The International Association for Ontology and its Applications (IAOA,
http://www.iaoa.org/) is soliciting proposals for the location of the Eighth International 
Conference on Formal Ontology and Information Systems (FOIS) to be held in 2014.

Proposals should include a description of the conference venue, the availability of local 
sponsorship, proposed dates, and a preliminary budget. Possible co-location with related 
conferences will also be considered as a factor in the final decision.
The IAOA has adopted the policy to take all risks and benefits for the FOIS conferences while 
encouraging sponsors to take part of the risks.

Please send proposals to laure.vieu@irit.fr by October 31, 2012.
