CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION

The FOIS conference series began with the first meeting in Trento, Italy, in June 1998, which was followed by meetings in 2001, 2004, 2006, and 2008. The sixth FOIS conference will be held in Toronto, Canada, during 11-14 May 2010, and we are now calling for posters to be considered for presentation at the poster session to be held during the conference. 

THE POSTER SESSION 

The poster session at FOIS 2010 will give young scientists the opportunity to present their current work related to formal ontology in information systems and discuss their approach, results, problems and methods with the other participants of the conference. The selection of poster contributions will pay specific attention to their relevance to the topics of FOIS 2010. The accepted posters will be published electronically and made available via the conference web page.

As this poster session is particularly intended to provide an opportunity for young ontologists to disseminate, and obtain feedback on, their work, submission is restricted to researchers who are either working towards a postgraduate qualification (masters or Ph.D.), or have obtained such a qualification within the last two years. Each accepted poster will be assigned a "tutor" from the FOIS programme committee, who will provide discussion and feedback to the author at the poster session.

For details on the scope of the conference, please see the main Call for Papers at http://fois2010.mie.utoronto.ca/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=3&Itemid=5.
