[CfP] Call for submission to the Early Career Symposium at FOIS 2023

Dear Semwebbers,

This is a call that targets PhD students or recently graduated postdocs 
doing research on formal ontologies. This may be interesting for you or 
for your young colleagues.

EarlyCareerSymposium @ FOIS2023 - Call for Submissions
Part of the 13th International Conference on Formal Ontology in 
Information Systems held July 17-20 in Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada

Important Dates:
Submission Deadline: March 15th
Notification: April 15th
Website: ​​https://fois2023.griis.ca/

The purpose of the Early Career Symposium is to provide students and 
early career researchers with a stage to present their work and receive 
feedback from more experienced researchers.
Early career researchers will be able to discuss their research 
directions, ideas, goals, methods, and (possibly) results. The Early 
Career Symposium aims to provide students with helpful guidance on 
different aspects of their research from established researchers and 
other attendees. Finally, the Early Career Symposium seeks to facilitate 
students networking within the FOIS research community.

The topics of interest of the ECS are the same as the main conference. 
The symposium is primarily designed for PhD students, but it is open as 
well for recently graduated PhDs.


The ECS will be held as an on-site event during the FOIS conference. It 
will consist of: 1) a mentoring lunch, in which ECS participants will be 
assigned senior researchers to provide feedback on participants’ work; 
2) a fast-talks session, where participants will have the opportunity to 
advertise their work in a  5 minutes speech in front of the general 
audience of the conference; 3) a traditional poster session.

With the ECS, the next generation of researchers at FOIS gets an 
opportunity to network and build up their careers. To this aim,  we also 
plan to have an informal ECS/students dinner during the conference — you 
will be asked to choose whether to participate in the registration process.


Submission deadline: March 15th
Notification of acceptance: April 15th

To join the ECS, candidates should write a summary (up to 3 pages 
excluding references) of their research project and upload it together 
with their short CV. You can find templates for LaTeX, MS Word, 
OpenDocument, and PDF at: https://www.emse.fr/~zimmermann/FOIS_ECS_2023/.
The template is meant to be used as a general reference to organize the 
description of the submitted research project in different sections with 
specific contents. Make sure that the final version of your submission 
is in a single PDF file.

Submissions will be reviewed by selected members of the FOIS Program 
Committee. Final submission is via EasyChair (see submission 
instructions): https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fois2023.
After signing in, please select ‘make a new submission’ and then the 
‘Early Career Symposium’ track.
