For schedule and background information see here.


Participants should have some background in ontology (including either philosophical or applied ontology). No specific knowledge of BFO is presupposed. This tutorial allows both face-to-face and on-line participation. Participation may be for credit (with an official university transcript), or the tutorial may be audited (with a certificate of completion if needed). The course will take place on the weekend of August 18-19, 2012, with follow-up meetings as necessary for those taking the course for credit.

Log-on/dial-in instructions for on-line participation will be provided by email to registered participants prior to the meeting.


Participation in this tutorial will yield 1 credit hour; up to 3 further credit hours can be received through completion of a project under the guidance of an assigned faculty member. Projects must be completed before November 30, 2012.

Registration details for students taking this course for credit are available:
here, for face-to-face participation;
here, for on-line participation.
External (non-UB) participants who wish to take this course for credit, either on-line or through face-to-face participation, should use the links above and follow the procedures outlined here under 'Non-matriculated student'. External students will be able to apply credits from participation in this tutorial to the UB Masters and PhD Programs in Ontology, and also to the planned on-line UB Advanced Graduate Certificate Program in Ontology which is currently being established. Further details can be obtained from Barry Smith.


Auditing, both on-line and face-to-face, is free to registered participants. All those wishing to audit this tutorial should fill in the registration form provided here as soon as possible. A certificate of participation will be supplied on request, but auditing the course does not count for credit.
