About

FOIS 2020 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. It will also allow participants to network with other (early career) scientists in the broad field of ontology, as well as to participate in a rich social environment together with peers. Topics of interest include all topics relevant to the interdisciplinary field of ontology as outlined in the topics of interest for FOIS 2020.

Call For Paper

Topics of interest

Areas of particular interest to FOIS include the following:

Foundational Issues:

  • Kinds of entities: particulars/universals, continuants/occurrents, abstracta/concreta, dependent entities/independent entities, natural objects/artifacts
  • Formal relations: parthood, identity, connection, dependence, constitution, causality, subsumption, instantiation
  • Vagueness and granularity
  • Space, time, and change

Methodological issues

  • Top-level vs. domain-specific ontologies
  • Role of reference ontologies
  • Ontology similarity, integration and alignment
  • Ontology modularity, contextuality, and evolution
  • Formal comparison among ontologies
  • Relationship with cognition, language, semantics, context
  • Ontologies and Knowledge Graphs

Domain-specific ontologies

  • Ontology of physical reality (matter, space, time, motion etc.)
  • Ontology of biological reality (organisms, genes, proteins, cells etc.)
  • Ontology of mental reality and agency (beliefs, intentions, emotions, perceptions, cognition, etc.)
  • Ontology of artifacts, functions, capacities and roles
  • Ontology of social reality (institutions, organizations, norms, social relationships, artistic expressions etc.)

Applications:

  • Ontology-driven information systems design
  • Ontological foundations for conceptual modeling
  • Knowledge management
  • Qualitative modeling
  • Computational linguistics
  • Information retrieval
  • Semantic Web
  • Business modeling
  • Ontologies and Machine Learning
  • Ontologies and Explainable AI
  • Ontologies for particular scientific disciplines (biology, chemistry, geography, physics, geoscience, cognitive sciences, linguistics etc.)
  • Ontologies for engineering: shape, form and function, artifacts, manufacturing, design, architecture etc.
  • Ontologies for the humanities: arts, cultural studies, history, literature, philosophy, etc.
  • Ontologies for the social sciences: economics, law, political science, anthropology, archeology, etc.
