We are interested in approachs to organising, presenting and disseminating knowledge in life sciences. We invite papers in traditional areas, such as the biological applications of ontologies, newly developed Bio-Ontologies, and the use of ontologies in data sharing standards. In addition, We invite submissions on a wide range of topics including, but not limited to:
- Semantic and/or Scientific Wikis.
- Collaborative Curation Platforms
- Collaborative Ontology Authoring and Peer-Review Mechanisms
- Automated ontology learning
- Mapping between ontologies
- Biological Applications of Ontologies
- "Flash updates" on Newly Developed or Existing Bio-Ontologies
- Use of Ontologies in Data Standards
- Semantic Web enabled applications (such as for enhanced publishing and for capturing scientific discourse)
- Research in Ontology Languages and its Effect on Bio-Ontologies
We are inviting three types of submissions.
- Short papers, up to 4 pages.
- Poster abstracts, up to 1 page.
- Flash updates, up to 1 page
Following review, successful papers will be presented at the Bio-Ontologies SIG. Poster abstracts will be provided poster space and time will be allocated during the 2 days for at least one poster session. Flash updates are for short talks (5 min) giving the salient new developments on existing public ontologies (e.g. the Foundational Model of Anatomy). Posters authors can also indicate a desire to provide a flash update.
Unsuccessful papers will automatically be considered for poster presentation; there is no need to submit both on the same topic.
Submissions are now closed
