ABOUT THE BIO-ONTOLOGIES SIG WORKSHOP
The workshop will continue offer an informal environment for 
presentation and discussion of ontologies and their role in providing a 
mechanism for organising, sharing and reconciling data. This year, to 
celebrate its tenth anniversary, we have invited four presenters from 
the first bio-ontologies tutorial and meeting organisers to sit on a 
panel, namely: Mark Musen, Peter Karp, Russ Altman and Steffen 
Schulze-Kremer

They will be asked to present positions on the following questions:
1. What has been the best thing to have happened in bio-ontologies in 
the past ten years?
2. What has been the worst thing to have happened in bio-ontologies in 
the past ten years?
3. How must bio-ontologies progress in the next ten years?
4. How must bio-ontologies not progress in the next ten years

CALL FOR PAPERS AND POSTER ABSTRACT:
We are inviting two types of submissions SHORT PAPER papers (up to 4 
pages) and POSTER ABSTRACT (up to 1/2 page) from any aspect doing 
bio-ontology research or using bio-ontologies to do bioinformatics 
research. Topics include, but are not restricted to:
- 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
- The implications of Bio-Ontologies or the Semantic Web for the drug 
discovery process
- Current Research In Ontology Languages and its implication for 
Bio-Ontologies

PROGRAM COMMITTEE
Abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee, including the 
Program Chairs and additionally: David Benton, Suzanna Lewis, Chris 
Mungall and Alan Ruttenberg.

PUBLICATION OF THE PROCEEDINGS
The Programme Committee will also select those papers, which are 
suitable for further publication in a BMC Bioinformatics Supplement. 
Authors will be invited to resubmit full papers.
