General Information
===================
      
The Bio-Ontologies workshop has been in existence since 1998, and now
operates as a Special Interest Group at the ISMB Conference.
Bio-Ontologies is well established as one of the key meetings for
dissemination of the latest information and research on ontologies in the
life sciences and has drawn the key researchers in the field.

After last year's highly successful theme of "Ontologies and Text
Analysis", we will follow with the timely theme of "Ontologies and
Bio-Images". Work is currently being done in the area of ontologies of
images, especially in the domain of developmental biology and
medicine. A prime example of this work is the Bio-Image databank,
which makes extensive use of ontologies.

Our guest speaker for this year's topic will be Dr. David Shotton, who
will talk about the use of ontologies within the BioImage database.


The preliminary programme follows. Full details from the website.
