Call for Tutorials

Submission deadline: 16 February 2024
Questions to: 

The Tutorial Chairs for FOIS 2024 invite proposals for tutorials to be held on site in conjunction with FOIS 2024, during the week of the main conference which will take place 15-19 July 2024 in Enschede, Netherlands.

FOIS 2024 seeks original and highly relevant proposals for tutorials to complement the conference program. The tutorial program will address the diverse interests of its audience: ontologies, formal ontology, and knowledge management and their application in information science or other areas. Moreover, tutorials can be an excellent opportunity to cover basic or advanced topics related to ontology research, ranging from Cognitive Science to Knowledge Representation, Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Logic, Philosophy, and Linguistics as well as well established or emerging research areas, techniques, methodologies and perspectives related to the Ontology field.

In 2024, we are looking for individuals and teams of presenters who would like to offer a tutorial specifically designed as a basic or an advanced description of a topic. We privilege diversity in the organising team as well as the presence of young researchers and PhD students. Moreover, up to 1 instructor per tutorial can have their registration fees waived for the main conference and any subset of co-located tutorials and workshops. 


Tutorials are intended to be highly interactive, educational, and should actively engage the audience to participate in the discussion. A full tutorial is expected to last 1.5 hours.
