Extended deadline -- FOIS 2021 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 applied formal ontology and a
nexus of interdisciplinary research and communication. FOIS is the flagship
conference of the International Association for Ontology and its
Applications (IAOA:  http://iaoa.org/), a non-profit organization which
promotes interdisciplinary research and international collaboration at the
intersection of philosophical ontology, linguistics, logic, cognitive
science, and computer science, as well as in the applications of
ontological analysis to conceptual modeling, knowledge engineering,
knowledge management, information-systems development, library and
information science, scientific research, and semantic technologies in

FOIS Demonstrations complements the full-length paper tracks (described here
<https://fois2021.inf.unibz.it/submissions-and-dates/>), offering a series
of action, interaction, and process-focused events. We invite both software
demos and demonstrations of methodologies, patterns, dynamics, and
challenges arising in use.  A goal of FOIS Demonstrations is to raise the
visibility and foster understanding of the dynamic, integrative, and
use-oriented aspects of applied ontology, its tools, and its uses. The
emphasis is on what happens.

*Areas of interest include (non-exhaustively):*


   Tools, in a broad sense including not only software and its use but also
   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

Subjects addressed by full-length papers in the Foundations, Applications
and Methods, and Domain Ontology tracks may also be demonstrated in action.
For example, a novel method, application, system, or categorical analysis
might be described in a full-length paper, with the appropriate detailed
analysis and support; that paper might be complemented by a demonstration
of the method, application, system, or categories in use. We encourage
submission of such demonstrations.

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 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.
Subject to that constraint, presenters are encouraged to be creative and to
choose a demonstration format that brings forward the dynamics or processes
of interest.

Demonstration submissions may take either of two forms: extended abstracts
or short papers.

Extended abstracts (maximum 3 pages) should provide an overview of what
will be demonstrated, including what will be shown in action, the salient
characteristics of that action (for example, application of a method or use
of a tool in a particular context or on a particular type of problem), how
it will be demonstrated. Abstracts should also address purpose and value:
what the authors seeks to convey and its significance.

Short papers (5-7 pages, including references) should present description
and analysis of the demonstration subject, the process or action that will
be demonstrated, the characteristics or results that will be in focus, and
the significance of these for applied ontology.

For both abstracts and short papers, if the demonstration is complementary
to a paper submitted to another track, the demo submission must include
reference to that paper and description of the difference in content and
value. Complementary submissions are encouraged; duplicative submissions
are not.

All submissions will be peer reviewed. The review process will be managed
in EasyChair and will include identification and avoidance of conflicts of

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).

At least one presenter must be a registered participant in the conference.
