 * Early Career Symposium at FOIS 2018*

See  website <http://fois2018.cs.uct.ac.za/?page_id=236>  for further

The international conference  Formal Ontology in Information Systems (FOIS)
<http://fois2018.cs.uct.ac.za/>   is one of the leading conferences in
ontology engineering. FOIS aims to promote interdisciplinary research and
international collaboration at the intersection of philosophical ontology,
linguistics, logic, cognitive science, and computer science, as well as in
the applications of ontological analysis to conceptual modeling, knowledge
engineering, knowledge management, information-systems development, library
and information science, scientific research, and semantic technologies in

The FOIS 2018 conference, to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, September
17-21, 2018, will host an  Early Career Symposium (ECS)
<http://fois2018.cs.uct.ac.za/?page_id=236>  . This event is designed to
provide an opportunity for graduate students to present their work at one of
the leading conferences in formal ontology and to get first-hand feedback
and mentorship from senior researchers in their field. It will also allow
participants to network with other (early career) scientists in the broad
field of ontology, as well as to participate in a rich social environment
together with peers. Topics of interest include all topics relevant to the
interdisciplinary field of ontology as outlined in the  topics of interest
<http://fois2018.cs.uct.ac.za/?page_id=8>   for FOIS 2018.

The ECS will be held as a poster session within the main FOIS conference.
The poster session will be opened by a lightning talks session, during which
each participant has the opportunity to advertise his/her work in a 5
minutes speech in front of the general audience of the conference. Each
participant will be assigned a senior researcher as mentor, who will provide
substantial feedback to his/her work.

Moreover, a PhD Lounge will allow early career scientists to meet and
discuss their work with each other, their mentors and other senior

*Application Instructions*
The ECS is open to students at the Masters and Doctoral Level that have not
defended their thesis before the ECS Submission deadline.

Candidates must submit a short description of their research project and an
up-to-date CV (as one pdf-file). Submissions will be reviewed by selected
members of the FOIS Program Committee. Final submission is via EasyChair
(see  submission instructions <http://fois2018.cs.uct.ac.za/?page_id=236>

*Template for submission*. The template
is meant to be used as general
reference to organize the description of the submitted research project in
different sections with specific contents. Latex can be also used. Make sure
that the submission is in pdf format and includes both the description and
the CV.

The abstracts (400 words), included in the project description, will be
published as part of the FOIS proceedings (published by CEUR).

A limited number of scholarships will be available to support students
participation. Further information will be soon available on the  website
<http://fois2018.cs.uct.ac.za/?page_id=236>  .
