SATBI+SWIM 2012 - Joint Workshop on Semantic Technologies Applied to
Biomedical Informatics and Individualized Medicine - Call for Papers

http://nadir.uc3m.es/satbi+swim2012/ <http://nadir.uc3m.es/satbi2011>

 Call for papers:

A defining characteristic of the next decade of biomedical research will be
the explosion in the range and quantity of biomedical information,
especially as it relates to individualized therapies. The purpose of this
joint workshop is to discuss research challenges, results, methods and
advances in the application of Semantic Web technologies to translating the
wealth of biomedical information into therapies, tools, and care practices
that improve health for patients and communities.

The workshop aims to attract researchers from Computer Science, Information
Science, Biomedicine, Bioinformatics, and related areas to share research
challenges, results, methods and advances in the appliance of Semantic Web
technologies to two domains within Clinical and Translational research -
bioinformatics and individualized medicine.

SATBI+SWIM 2012 has been divided in two separate tracks:

Track 1: SATBI (Semantic Applied Technologies on Biomedical Informatics)

Cataloguing, categorizing, and richly annotating biomedical and
post-genomics data is critical to ensure its rapid, relevant use to
increase return-on-investment in high-throughput studies.  Semantic
Technologies not only allow the conceptual organization and categorization
of biomedical data based on rich domain-knowledge, but also enable the
creation of more powerful electronic resources through which researchers
can utilize these massive data resources to advance biomedical discovery.
 Such resources include knowledge-based multi-site interoperability
systems, enhanced by ontological reasoning over the hidden "facts" in
biological data.

Topics of interest in this track include, but are not limited to:


   Design, Development and Management of Biological Ontologies for
   Genetics, Proteomics, Diseases, etc.

   Linked Data Integration and reasoning in Biology and Medicine

   Biological science applications to produce and/or consume linked data

   Biological knowledge discovery with linked data

   The use of semantic web technology to support natural language
   processing and information retrieval for the biological sciences

Track 2: SWIM (Applying Semantic Web Technology for Clinical Decision
Support and Cohort Identification in Individualized Medicine)

The overarching goal for clinical and translational science activities is
to facilitate the translation of research results into therapies, tools and
patient care practices that improve health for patients and communities.
Clinical and translational research is an integral component in the
biomedical research enterprise but these critical areas of research are
hampered by the lack of bidirectional flow of information between basic and
translational scientists, and between the bench and the bedside. SemanticWeb
technologies can provide the necessary infrastructure for accessing and
integrating multiple types of data, and remedy the information bottleneck.

We invite novel and previously unpublished work demonstrating the
applicability of Semantic Web technologies to clinical and translational
research, including:


   Clinical decision support for personalized medicine

   Data integration from heterogeneous biomedical knowledge bases and
   sources to support translational research

   Semantic interoperability between electronic health records

   Semantics driven biomedical question-answering systems

   Automated techniques for patient cohort identification

   Drug-interaction/adverse drug event detection and representation

   Standards-based modeling of phenotype definitions

   Applications in pharmacogenomics, pharmacoepidemiology, and comparative
   effectiveness research
