         Early Career Symposium

         held as part of FOIS 2014

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, September 24, 2014



    Application deadline: May 19, 2014





The FOIS 2014 conference will host an Early Career Symposium (ECS). 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. Topics of interest include all topics relevant to the interdisciplinary field of ontology as outlined in the topics of interest for FOIS 2014 (see http://fois2014.inf.ufes.br/p/call-for-papers.html#topics).




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 3 minutes speech in front of the general audience of the FOIS conference. Each participant will be assigned a senior researcher, 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.



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 description of their research project (see the template at  http://www.spatial.maine.edu/~torsten/fois14-ecs/ECS_submission_template.doc) and a current CV. Submissions will be reviewed by selected members of the FOIS Program Committee. Final submission is via https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fois2014 (select the track 'Early Career Symposium').
