FOMI submissions


In order to encourage the participation of both academics and stakeholders working on disparate aspects of ontology engineering applied to the manufacturing industry, we encourage two types of contribution:

Research paper:

Research papers present scientific results and need to address their contribution with respect to the current state of play. A rigorous methodology, both conceptual and formal, is expected.

Insights from industry, case studies and software demo:  

The track is for researchers and practitioners who want to share their practical experience with ontology-based approaches, case studies, and application systems. Papers are not meant to provide novel results with respect to the current state of the art; rather they are  expected to give a practical insight and address challenges concerning the use of ontologies in industrial applications. If software applications are presented, authors are welcome to give a demo during the workshop to show the software functionalities based on the ontology.

Submitted papers must not exceed 6 pages (including the bibliography) and must include an abstract of no more than 300 words.

  • Submission deadline: 30 May 2018
  • Notification of acceptance: 30 June 2018
  • Camera-ready version: 15 July 2018

The proceedings will be published by the Procedia Manufacturing (Elsevier), Scopus indexed.

Authors are kindly asked to attach a letter to papers specifying, first, their intention to submit to the FOMI@Manufacturing workshop, second, the type of submission (research paper track, or application track).
See the general submission page for more information on how to submit.
