Call for Demonstrations

Submission deadline: 17 April 2024 27 April 2024

Definition and scope

The demonstration track complements FOIS 2024 full-length paper main tracks by offering an interactive platform for authors to present and discuss their work. We invite demonstrations of tools and methods developed using ontologies, as well as those to create, maintain, integrate, publish, evaluate, and implement ontologies. We also invite demonstrations of novel ontology (anti)patterns and of challenges arising in the ontology engineering life cycle. The goal is to raise the visibility and foster understanding of the dynamic, integrative, and use-oriented aspects of applied ontology, its tools, and its uses.

Areas of interest include (non-exhaustively):

We encourage the demonstrations of software tools, patterns, methods, and languages reported in papers accepted for the main tracks. For example, a novel ontology engineering method proposed in a full-length paper in the Application and Methods track can be complemented by demonstrating the method.

Submission guidelines

Submissions should describe the demonstration subject, the process or action that will be demonstrated, the characteristics or results that will be in focus, and the significance of these for applied ontology.

Demonstration submissions may take either of two forms:

If the demonstration paper is complementary to another paper at FOIS, it must refer to that paper and describe the difference in content and value. Complementary submissions are encouraged; duplicative submissions are not.

Submissions must:

As FOIS 2024 will consist of a physical meeting and a virtual meeting, when submitting your paper, indicate which mode of presentation you want. Acceptance will be either for in-person or online presentations when authors can no longer change the modality. Since the number of in-person and online presentations is limited, we encourage authors to be as flexible as possible to maximize their chance of paper acceptance. Read more about presentation modes here.


Accepted papers will be published in a joint CEUR proceedings volume in the IAOA series, together with those of the Joint Ontology Workshops (JOWO) and other events collocated with FOIS 2024.


At least one author of each accepted paper must register at FOIS 2024. Presentations may be held both during the onsite conference in Enschede and during the online session. If a paper has been allocated to the in-person part of the conference, it cannot be presented remotely.
