Workshops at FOIS are scientific events that are independently

organized by the workshop organizers. The workshop organizers will be

responsible for advertising the workshop and reviewing and selecting

the contributions. Workshops can be events that provide a forum for

the discussion of topics that may complement the main conference or

focus on specialized sub-topics related to formal ontology and its

application in information systems.


We specifically invite proposals for workshops organized by IAOA

Special Interest Groups and Technical Committees.






Areas of interest to the conference include the following:


- Specific Foundational Issues in Formal Ontology

- Ontology Evaluation

- Specific Issues in Ontology Methodologies

- Scientific applications

- Relations between Formal Ontology and the Semantic Web

- Visualization and accessibility

- Ontology Repositories


A full list of topics can be found on the conference website: http://fois2014.inf.ufes.br/p/call-for-papers.html




Workshop proposals should be no more than 2 pages in length, and must

contain the following information:

- title of the workshop

- names of the workshop organizers

- brief description of experience in workshop organization

- description of the workshop topic

- brief statement on the relation and relevance of the workshop to FOIS

- intended duration of the workshop (half-day, full-day)

- timeline for the workshop (submission dates, notification dates)

  Please consider the notification date of FOIS and the proposed

  Workshop Submission Deadline. 

- plans for publishing workshop proceedings


Workshop proposals should be submitted to the FOIS Workshop Track

through Easychair:





Submissions for workshop proposals will be evaluated by members of the

FOIS organizing and program committee, using the following criteria:

- Relevance and utility to attendees

- Quality of the proposal

- Likelihood of success of the workshop

- Complementarity with FOIS and overlap with other workshop




The proceedings of the FOIS workshops are usually published on-line by

the respective organizers and are not included in the main conference
