Meeting Description: 

Since its inception ten years ago, the International Conference on Formal
Ontology in Information Systems has explored the multiple perspectives on the
notion of ontology that have arisen from such diverse research communities as
philosophy, logic, computer science, cognitive science, linguistics, and various
scientific domains.

As ontologies have been applied in new and exciting domains such as the World
Wide Web, bioinformatics, and geographical information systems, it has become
evident that there is a need for ontologies that have been developed with solid
theoretical foundations based on philosophical, linguistic, and logical
analysis. Similarly, there is also a need for theoretical research that is
driven by the issues that have been raised by recent work in the more applied
domains.

FOIS is intended to be a forum in which to explore this interplay between the
theoretical insights of formal ontology and their application to information
systems and emerging semantic technologies.
