Bio-Ontologies: Knowledge in Biology provides a forum for discussion of the latest and most cutting-edge research in ontologies and more generally the organisation, presentation and dissemination of knowledge in biology. It has existed as a SIG at ISMB for 11 years now, making it one of the longest running.
We are interested in any formal or informal approach to organising, presenting and disseminating knowledge in biology.
We invite submissions on a wide range of topics including, but not limited to:
- Semantic and/or Scientific Wikis
- Multimedia Blogs
- Tag Clouds
- Collaborative Curation Platforms
- Collaborative Ontology Authoring and Peer-Review Mechanisms
- Biological Applications of Ontologies
- Reports on Newly Developed or Existing Bio-Ontologies
- Tools for Developing Ontologies
- Use of Ontologies in Data Communication Standards
- Use of Semantic Web technologies in Bioinformatics
- Implications of Bio-Ontologies or the Semantic Web for Drug Discovery
- Research in Ontology Languages and its Effect on Bio-Ontologies
This year's keynote speaker will by Barend Mons.
Submissions are now open and can be submitted through EasyChair:
Instructions to Authors
We are inviting two types of submissions.
- Short papers, up to 4 pages.
- Poster abstracts, up to 1/2 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 day for at least one poster session.
Unsuccessful papers will automatically be considered for poster presentation; there is no need to submit both on the same topic.
