CALL FOR PAPERS
10th Int’l. Symposium on Foundations of Information and Knowledge Systems
May 14-18, 2018
Alfréd Rényi 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.(/p)

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
optimization.

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
discussion.(/p)

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.(/p)

Submission Guidelines
=====================

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another
journal or conference. Papers must be typeset using the Springer LaTeX2e
style llncs for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The suggested number of
pages is 16, and the maximum number of pages is 18. Submissions which
deviate substantially from these guidelines may be rejected without review.
Initial submissions must be in PDF format, but authors should keep in mind
that the LaTeX2e source must be submitted for the final versions of
accepted papers. Submissions in alternate formats, such as Microsoft Word,
cannot be accepted for either initial or final versions. The submissions
will be judged for scientific quality and for suitability as a basis for
broader discussion. Submission is via EasyChair at

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=foiks2018
