topics relevant to the interdisciplinary field of ontology as outlined in

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.
