September 13-16, 2021: ECS at FOIS 2021



The International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems
(FOIS) is one of the leading conferences in ontology engineering. FOIS aims
to promote interdisciplinary research and international collaboration at the
intersection of philosophical ontology, linguistics, logic, cognitive
science, and computer science, as well as in the applications of ontological
analysis to conceptual modelling, knowledge engineering, knowledge
management, information-systems development, library and information
science, scientific research, and semantic technologies in general.


The FOIS 2021 conference, to be held in Bolzano-Bozen (Italy), September
13-16, 2021, will host an Early Career Symposium (ECS). This event is
designed to provide an opportunity for graduate students to present their
work at one of the leading conferences in formal ontology and to get
first-hand feedback and mentorship from senior researchers in their field.
Topics of interest include all topics relevant to the interdisciplinary
field of ontology as outlined in the topics of interest for FOIS 2021.



The ECS will be held as a hybrid poster event within the main FOIS
conference. The poster event will be preceded by a hybrid lightning talks
session, during which each participant has the opportunity to advertise
his/her work in a 5 minute speech in front of the general audience of the
conference, either in person at the venue or remotely. Each participant will
be assigned a senior researcher as mentor, who will provide substantial
feedback to his/her work.



The ECS is open to students at the Master and Doctoral Levels that have not
defended their thesis before the ECS Submission deadline.


Candidates must submit a short description of their research project, which
should not be longer than 3 pages. Submissions will be reviewed by selected
members of the FOIS Program Committee. Final submission is via EasyChair
(see submission instructions):
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jowo2021. After signing in, select
the 'Early Career Symposium (ECS)' track.


The submissions should follow the submission template available here:
<https://tinyurl.com/sdwrn6km> https://tinyurl.com/sdwrn6km. The template is
meant to be used as a general reference to organize the description of the
submitted research project in different sections with specific contents.
Make sure that the final version of your submission is in a single pdf file.

The abstracts (up to 500 words), included in the projects' descriptions,
will be published open access in a joint CEUR proceedings volume, as part of
the new IAOA series ( <http://ceur-ws.org/iaoa.html>



The successful authors must register for the main conference. Registration
will be free for all students participating remotely.
