CfP: FOIS 2024: 14th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems, 15-19 July 2024 & 08-09 July 2024, Enschede (Netherlands) & online

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP]


14th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems (FOIS 2024)
15-19 July 2024 (Enschede, Netherlands) - 08-09 July 2024 (online)
Website: https://www.utwente.nl/en/eemcs/fois2024/


FOIS aims to be a nexus of interdisciplinary research and communication for researchers from many domains engaging with 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, 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), a non-profit organization promoting interdisciplinary research and international collaboration in formal ontology.

FOIS 2024 will be held both online and in Enschede, the Netherlands, by the Semantics, Cybersecurity & Services group of the University of Twente.

The conference includes the following calls:
     -  Main Papers*
     -  Workshops - Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO)*
     -  Journal-first*
     -  Tutorials
     -  Ontology showcase
     -  Demonstrations
     -  Project exhibitions

* Calls currently open, details below

Call for Papers
Paper submission deadline: 26 February 2024 (AoE)

The conference encourages the submission of high-quality, not previously published results on both theoretical issues and practical advancements.

Important dates
     -  Paper submission: 26 February 2024 (AoE)
     -  Notifications: 15 April 2024
     -  Virtual conference: 8-9 July 2024
     -  Onsite conference: 15-19 July 2024
     -  Camera-ready papers: 30 July 2024

FOIS 2024 seeks three types of full-length (14 pages) high-quality papers on a wide range of topics:

- Foundational papers address content-related ontological issues, their formal representation, and their relevance to some aspects of information systems.
- Application and Methods papers address novel systems, methods, and tools related to building, evaluating, or using ontologies, emphasizing the impact of ontology contents.
- Domain ontology papers describe a novel ontology for a specific realm of interest, clarifying ontological choices
against requirements and foundational theory, and showing ontology use.

As usual, the FOIS proceedings will be published by IOS Press.

Call for Workshop Proposals - Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO)
Episode X: The Tukker Zomer of Ontology
Workshop proposal submission: 14 December, 2024
Webpage: https://www.utwente.nl/en/eemcs/fois2024/calls/workshops/#overview

The mission of the Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO) is to join forces of the diverse communities interested in building, reasoning with, and applying formalized ontologies in the wide spectrum of information sciences, artificial intelligence theory and applications, philosophy and cognitive science, and beyond.

As in earlier years, all contributions to accepted workshops will be published open access in a joint CEUR proceedings volume, as part of the new IAOA series (http://ceur-ws.org/iaoa.html).

We encourage several forms and lengths of workshops (the list is non-exhaustive):

- Workshops that focus on an established research area, including continuations of workshops that were held in the past;
- Workshops that focus on emerging topics and applications, or on open research questions and challenges;
- Workshops that aim to create cross-disciplinary research fostering the exchange of ideas between groups otherwise mostly disconnected
- Workshops that promote hands-on activities related to ontologies and their applications.

Important dates
     -  Workshop proposal submission: 14 December, 2024
     -  Workshop acceptance notification: 08 January 2024
     -  Workshop call for papers announcement and publicity: 31 January 2024
     -   Workshop paper submission deadline: 17 April 2024
     -  Workshop author notification: 15 May 2024
     -  Camera-ready submission (post-conference proceedings): 30 June 2024
     -  Workshop day: between 15-19 July 2024 (co-located with FOIS 2024)

Call for Journal-first
Paper submission: 17 April 2024
Webpage: https://www.utwente.nl/en/eemcs/fois2024/calls/journal-first/

The FOIS 2024 journal-first track provides a forum to discuss recent published research on topics related to formal ontology for broader dissemination within the FOIS community. The track invites submissions of extended abstracts of papers that have appeared or have been accepted for publication in journals, but have not been previously presented at FOIS or any other applied ontology-focused conference, including ICBO, ISWC, ESWC, K-CAP, and all JOWO workshops.
Copyright permitting, accepted abstracts to the track (or shortened versions) will be published in the conference proceedings for FOIS satellite events within the IAOA series at CEUR-WS. In addition, they will be presented during the conference (either on-site or online). Accepted papers to the track will be linked to the conference website.
At least one author of each accepted abstract must register for the conference to present the work (on-site or online).

Expected contributions
For the journal-first track, we solicit submissions that meet the following criteria:
     -  They relate to the topics of the FOIS conference (see FOIS 2024's call for papers).
     -  They are not extensions of an earlier conference or workshop paper.
     -  They must have been published in a journal in 2021 or later.
     -  They are research articles, but not review articles or commentaries.
Submissions that are in press can be submitted as long as the final camera-ready version is available.

Important dates
     -  Paper submission: 17 April 2024
     -  Author notification: 15 May 2024
