The 12th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems, FOIS 2021, will be held in Bozen-Bolzano, Italy, 13-17 September 2021 (please note that we extended FOIS by one day).
It will be part of the Bolzano Summer of Knowledge 2021 (BOSK).
FOIS 2021 is planned as a hybrid event. Hence, there will be a physical meeting in Bozen which hopefully most will be able to join. However, given the uncertainty about travel in September we will make arrangements for remote participation.
FOIS 2021 consists of the main conference (divided into 3 tracks) and parallel events, including the Early Career Symposium, Demonstrations, and the Ontology Showcase. In addition, it will include workshops and tutorials.
