Scope

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. Topics of interest include all topics
relevant
to the interdisciplinary field of ontology as outlined in the topics of
interest for FOIS 2016.


Format

The ECS will be held as a poster session within the main FOIS conference.
The
poster session will be opened by a lightning talks session, during which
each
participant has the opportunity to advertise his/her work in a 3 minutes
speech to the general audience of the FOIS conference. Each participant
will
be assigned a senior researcher as a mentor, who will provide substantial
feedback to his/her work. Moreover, a PhD Lounge will allow early career
scientists to meet and discuss their work with each other.

defended their thesis before the ECS Submission deadline.
