=================== FoIKS 2018 | Call for Participation ======================

10th Int'l. Symposium on Foundations of Information and Knowledge Systems
May 14-18, 2018
Alfred Renyi Institute of Mathematics,
Hungarian Academy of Sciences,
Budapest, Hungary


The FoIKS symposia provide a biennial forum for presenting and discussing
theoretical and applied research on information and knowledge systems.
The goal is to bring together researchers with an interest in this
subject, share research experiences, promote collaboration and identify
new issues and directions for future research.

FoIKS 2018 solicits original contributions dealing with any foundational
aspect of information and knowledge systems. This includes submissions
that apply ideas, theories or methods from specific disciplines to
information and knowledge systems. Examples of such disciplines are
discrete mathematics, logic and algebra, model theory, information theory,
complexity theory, algorithmics and computation, statistics and

The FoIKS symposia are a forum for intense discussions. Speakers will be
given sufficient time to present their ideas and results within the larger
context of their research; furthermore, participants will be asked to
prepare a first response to another contribution in order to initiate

Previous FoIKS symposia were held in Linz (Austria) in 2016, Bordeaux
(France) in 2014, Kiel (Germany) in 2012, Sofia (Bulgaria) in 2010, Pisa
(Italy) in 2008, Budapest (Hungary) in 2006, Vienna (Austria) in 2004,
Schloss Salzau near Kiel (Germany) in 2002, and Burg/Spreewald near Berlin
(Germany) in 2000. FoIKS took up the tradition of the conference series
Mathematical Fundamentals of Database Systems (MFDBS), which initiated
East-West collaboration in the field of database theory. Former MFDBS
conferences were held in Rostock (Germany) in 1991, Visegrad (Hungary)
in 1989, and Dresden (Germany) in 1987.

Invited Speakers

Gerhard Brewka, University of Leipzig.
Laura Kovacs, TU Wien, Austria.
Sebastian Link, University of Auckland, New Zealand.
David Pearce, Technical University of Madrid, Spain (supported by ALP).
Bernhard Thalheim, Christian-Albrechts-University at Kiel, Germany.
