REMINDER: NCBO Seminar Series - Meeting Info for Wed, June 17! Hello All! 

The next NCBO Seminar Series will be held Wednesday, June 17, at 10am PST. The seminar will be presented by Dr. Larry Hunter, Director of the Center for Computational Pharmacology at the University of Colorado Denver. The title of the talk will be “3R Systems: Implications for knowledge representation and reasoning.” 

Below is Information on how to join this week’s online meeting and accompanying teleconference. Please note there will not be a VOIP option, and attendees must call into the teleconference. 

For more information about the series, please visit the Seminar Series home page: http://www.bioontology.org/seminar_series.html . Information on how to join this week’s webinar is given below. To receive information on or to join any future meetings, please contact me at skanel@stanford.edu . 

This series aims to showcase new projects, technologies and ideas in biomedical ontology by featuring the work of a different collaborator each session. It is a webinar held online, and as such is open to anyone interested, regardless of location or affiliation. The sponsoring organization, the National Center for Biomedical Ontology ( http://www.bioontology.org ), is a consortium of leading biologists, clinicians, informaticians, and ontologists who develop innovative technology and methods allowing scientists to create, disseminate, and manage biomedical information and knowledge in machine-processable form. 

We hope to see you there. 


Title: 3R Systems: Implications for knowledge representation and reasoning. 

Abstract: The profusion of high-throughput instruments and the explosion of new results in the scientific literature, particularly in molecular biomedicine, is both a blessing and a curse to the bench researcher. 
Even knowledgable and experienced scientists can benefit from computational tools that help navigate this vast and rapidly evolving terrain. However, effective design and implementation of computational tools that genuinely facilitate the generation of novel and significant scientific insights remains poorly understood. In 
this talk, I will describe a set of efforts that combines natural language processing for information extraction, graphical network models for semantic data integration, and some novel user interface 
approaches into a system that has recently played a pivotal role in making a significant biomedical discovery. This work has implications regarding the use of ontological terms for knowledge representation and reasoning.
