Call for Papers
FOIS-2004 International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems
November 4-6, 2004, Torino (Italy)
Just as ontology developed over the centuries as part of philosophy,
so in recent years ontology has become intertwined with the
development of the information sciences. Researchers in such areas
as artificial intelligence, formal and computational linguistics,
biomedical informatics, conceptual modeling, knowledge
engineering and information retrieval have come to realize that a solid
foundation for their research calls for serious work in ontology,
understood as a general theory of the types of entities and relations that
make up their respective domains of inquiry. In all these areas, attention
has started to focus on the content of information rather than on just
the formats and languages in terms of which information is represented.
The clearest example of this development is provided by the many
initiatives growing up around the project of the Semantic Web. And as
the need for integrating research in these different fields arises, so does
the realization that strong principles for building well-founded ontologies
might provide significant advantages over ad hoc, case-based solutions.
The tools of Formal Ontology address precisely these needs, but a real
effort is required in order to apply such philosophical tools to the domain
of Information Systems. Reciprocally, research in the information science
raises specific ontological questions which call for further philosophical
investigations. The purpose of FOIS is to provide a forum for genuine
interdisciplinary exchange in the spirit of a unified ontological analysis
Although the primary focus of the conference is on theoretical issues,
methodological proposals as well as papers dealing with concrete applications
from a well-founded theoretical perspective are welcome.

9TH Ibero-American Conference on Artificial Intelligence
Puebla, Mexico
November 22-26, 2004

Contact: iberamia2004@inaoep.mx
Web Site: http://www.inaoep.mx/iberamia2004

IBERAMIA is the international forum where the Ibero-american AI
community meet together for presenting and discussing the research and
development carried out in South and Central America countries, Spain, and
The IX Ibero-American Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IBERAMIA) will
take place at Puebla, Mexico, hosted by the Instituto Nacional de
Astrofisica Optica y Electronica (INAOE), from November 22-26, 2004.

IBERAMIA is supported by the Ibero-American societies of AI
         AEPIA - Asociacion Espanola para Inteligencia Artificial
         APPIA - Associašao Portuguesa para Inteligencia Artificial
         SBC - Sociedade Brasileira de Computašao, Brazil
         SMIA - Sociedad Mexicana de Inteligencia Artificial

The first IBERAMIA conference was held in 1988 at Barcelona. Since then
IBERAMIA has been the forum to debate research and development on AI in
Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries. Following Barcelona IBERAMIA
conferences were held every two years Morelia 1990( Mexico), La Habana 1992
(Cuba), Caracas 1994 (Venezuela), Cholula 1996 (Mexico), Lisboa 1998
(Portugal), Sao Paolo 2000 (Brazil), and Sevilla 2002 (Spain).
In these sixteen years, the goals of IBERAMIA have been to strengthen the
relationship among the AI research groups of the Ibero-American community,
to create the appropriate conditions for researchers to disseminate their
research work and to facilitate the contact between new researchers and
consolidated groups.
