Conference Description

----------------------

Since its inception ten years ago, the International Conference on  

Formal Ontology in Information Systems has explored the multiple  

perspectives on the notion of ontology that have arisen from such  

diverse research communities as philosophy, logic, computer science,  

cognitive science, linguistics, and various scientific domains.

 

As ontologies have been applied in new and exciting domains such as
the 

World Wide Web, bioinformatics, and geographical information  systems, 

it has become evident that there is a need for ontologies  that have 

been developed with solid theoretical foundations based on  

philosophical, linguistic, and logical analysis. Similarly, there is  

also a need for theoretical research that is driven by the issues that


have been raised by recent work in the more applied domains.

 

FOIS is intended to be a forum in which to explore this interplay  

between the theoretical insights of formal ontology and their  

application to information systems and emerging semantic technologies.
