Call for Demonstrations

The 12th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems
(FOIS 2021), 13-16 September 2021


The Demonstration Chairs invite submissions for demonstrations to be
delivered as part of FOIS 2021.

The FOIS conference is a leading event in ontology engineering. FOIS aims
to be a nexus of interdisciplinary research and communication, inclusive of
many domains engaging with applied formal ontology. Common application
areas include conceptual modeling, database design, knowledge engineering
and management, software engineering, organizational modeling, artificial
intelligence, robotics, computational linguistics, the life sciences,
bioinformatics and scientific research in general, geographic information
science, information retrieval, library and information science, as well as
the Semantic Web.

FOIS is the flagship conference of the International Association for
Ontology and its Applications (IAOA: http://iaoa.org/ ), a non-profit
organization promoting interdisciplinary research and international
collaboration in formal ontology.

FOIS 2021 is planned as a hybrid event: there will be a physical meeting in
Bozen-Bolzano, Italy, with a remote participation option. Accordingly,
demonstrations may be delivered either virtually or in a hybrid fashion.

FOIS Demonstrations Scope

The FOIS Demonstrations share the general subject matter of FOIS while
presenting a series of action, interaction, and process-focused events. The
event seeks to raise visibility and foster understanding of the dynamic,
integrative, and use-oriented aspects of applied ontology, including
application, integration, methodologies, and tools. The emphasis is on what

Areas of interest include (non-exhaustively):


   Tools, in a broad sense including software, architectures,
   representations and languages, methodologies, design patterns, and
   repeatable processes

   Applications and uses of tools, including their integration into larger
   technical and socio-technical systems

   Challenges encountered and not yet well addressed

   Positive, negative, or mixed results of adoption

   Problem or opportunity patterns that emerge when applying or using tools
   in particular contexts

Demonstration presenters should be prepared to answer technical questions
and to participate in a joint technical Q&A session with other demo teams.

FOIS 2021 seeks submissions in either of two forms: extended abstracts and
short papers.

Extended abstracts (maximum 3 pages) should provide an overview of what
will be demonstrated, including not only tools (in the broad sense above)
but also such aspects as usage, application, integration, or other
interaction, challenges, results, or other salient features.

Short papers (5-7 pages, including references), presenting description and
analysis of, e.g., tools (in the broad sense above), emphasizing what
happens when these are used or applied; characteristics of real-world
environments or uses that present patterns of opportunity or difficulty for
adoption; technical reports; and descriptions of completed or ongoing work.

Accepted submissions will be published in a joint CEUR proceedings volume
in the IAOA series, together with those of the Joint Ontology Workshops
(JOWO) and the FOIS collocated events.

Both papers and demonstration abstracts should be in PDF format using the
CEUR-Art one-column style, which can be found at:
and downloaded at: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/CEURART.zip.

Submissions should be made using the EasyChair at:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jowo2021. Selecting track: FOIS
2021 Demonstrations).

Presenters must be registered participants in the conference.
