13th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems 
(FOIS 2023), September 18-20, 2023 (Online)

Definition and scope

The FOIS conference is a meeting point for all researchers with an 
interest in formal ontology. Formal ontology is the systematic study of 
the types of entities and relations making up the domains of interest 
represented in modern information systems. FOIS 2023 will have distinct 
tracks for foundational issues, ontology applications and methods, and 
domain ontologies. FOIS aims to be a nexus of interdisciplinary research 
and communication for researchers from many domains engaging with formal 
ontology. Common application areas include conceptual modeling, database 
design, knowledge engineering and management, software engineering, 
organizational modeling, artificial intelligence, robotics, 
computational linguistics, the life sciences, bioinformatics and 
scientific research in general, geographic information science, 
information retrieval, library and information science, as well as the 
Semantic Web.

FOIS is the flagship conference of the International Association for 
Ontology and its Applications (IAOA:, which is a 
non-profit organization promoting interdisciplinary research and 
international collaboration in formal ontology.
