About the Bio-Ontologies SIG Meeting

The meeting will continue to offer an informal environment for 
presentation and discussion of ontologies and their role in providing 
a mechanism for describing biology as well as  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
Steffen Schulze-Kremer

They will be asked to present positions on the following questions:

List of 4 items
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

list end


Call for papers and poster abstract:

We are inviting two types of submissions: SHORT PAPER papers (up to 4
