Abstract: The Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) is built on the premise that all concepts are well grounded in reality rather than data, for example the realities of contracts, accounting concepts and other real world concerns. These in turn are framed within a set of under-specified upper ontology partitions. In order to capture the basic semantics of events and processes, such as corporate events and securities issuance processes, this initiative includes a pair of partitions for continuant and occurrent things (also comparable to endurant and perdurant things). In this session the FIBO team will present some recent exploratory work on further extensions of the occurrent partition of the FIBO future foundational models. These are intended to provide a more precise framing for concepts relating to business processes, events, activities, interest accruals and so on.
