The European Network on Social Ontology was founded in 2007 with the goal to provide a platform for discussion and exchange of ideas, future research activities at European level and the organization of a biennial international conference focusing on social ontology. Attendance to the conference allows participants to join the International Social Ontology Society (ISOS). The conference will be organized by the Metaphysics & Collectivity Research Group in cooperation with the Department of Philosophy at Lund University and The International Social Ontology Society.
