>> Conference 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.

>> ...)
>> *  Ontology of mental reality and agency (beliefs, intentions and  other
>> mental attitudes; emotions, ...)
>> *  Ontology of social reality (institutions, organizations, norms,
>> social relationships, artistic expressions, ...)
>> *  Ontology of the information society (information, communication,
>> meaning negotiation, ...)
>> *  Ontology and Natural Language Semantics, Ontology and Cognition
