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, o 
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

-          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
