First Interdisciplinary Summer School on Ontological Analysis
July 16-20, 2012 -- Trento, Italy
Six experts in different disciplines (philosophy, cognitive linguistics,
knowledge representation and conceptual modeling) will meet for a week
with students and researchers to present common themes in applied ontology
and describe them from each discipline's viewpoint, to engage in open
discussions with each other, and to interact with the participants.
Registration is now open
(the fee includes admission to all courses, coffee breaks, and lunches).
Early Registration (Mar 15 - Apr 16): Student 150 euro, Regular 250 euro

The number of participants is limited to 80. Participation is granted based
on the order of registration.
The IAOA funds some grants for students. The grant covers the registration fee.
In exceptional cases the IAOA will contribute to cover travel expenses and
accommodation. Moreover, members of AI*IA can apply for grants for partially
covering travel expenses.
