*What*: Bio-Ontologies SIG submission deadline
*When*: April 22nd, 2011
*Where*: http://www.bio-ontologies.org.uk/submissions

Details below ...

The Bio-Ontologies SIG (www.bio-ontologies.org.uk) provides a forum for
discussion of the latest and most innovative research in the organisation,
presentation and dissemination of knowledge in biomedicine and the life
sciences. Bio-Ontologies has existed as a SIG at ISMB for 13 years, making
it one of the longest running. We invite you to join us on July 15th-16th,
2011 (Fri, Sat) at ISMB/ECCB 2011 in Vienna, Austria.

Key dates:

Submissions Due: April 22th, 2011 (Fri)
Notifications: May 13th, 2011 (Fri)
Final Version Due: May 20th, 2011 (Fri)
Workshop: July 15th-16th, 2011 (Fri, Sat)

Keynote speakers: Andrew Su and Ian Dix

Submissions: http://www.bio-ontologies.org.uk/submissions

We are interested in innovative approaches to organizing, presenting and
consuming knowledge in life sciences and biomedicine. We invite papers in
traditional areas, such as the biological applications of ontologies,
reports on newly developed Bio-Ontologies, and the use of ontologies in data
sharing standards.

In addition, we invite submissions on methods, applications and workflows
that bridge the gaps in the acquisition, dissemination and consumption of
scientific content in biomedical informatics research. For example, the
importance and utility of collaborative content acquisition platforms (such
as Wikis) is now widely accepted; however success stories about informatics
workflows and discoveries that are specifically enabled by the proliferation
of bio-wikis are not yet common. Similarly, there is tremendous excitement
around sharing and mining of data for both basic as well as clinical
research but real life solutions which bridge that divide are still scarce.
We are looking for submissions on solutions that demonstrate the use of
ontologies for "bridging the gaps" across research areas in the life
sciences.

Following review, successful papers will be presented at the Bio-Ontologies
SIG. Poster abstracts will be provided poster space and time will be
allocated during the 2 days for at least one poster session. Flash updates
are for short talks (5 min) giving the salient new developments on existing
public ontologies. Authors of posters can also indicate a desire to provide
a flash update. Unsuccessful paper submissions will automatically be
considered for poster presentation; there is no need to submit both on the
same topic.

Please submit at: http://www.bio-ontologies.org.uk/submissions

Selected papers from the 2010 SIG are now in press at the Journal of
Biomedical Semantics, the special issue will be out soon! The papers are:

   1. Luciano, J.S., Andersson, B., Batchelor, C. et al. The Translational
   Medicine Ontology and Knowledge Base: Driving personalized medicine by
   bridging the gap between bench and bedside.
   2. Ghazvinian, A., Noy, N.F., Musen,M.A. How Orthogonal are the OBO
   Foundry Ontologies?
   3. Callahan, A., Dumontier, M., Shah, N. HyQue: Evaluating hypotheses
   using Semantic Web technologies.
   4. Ciccarese, P., Ocana, M., Castro, L.J.G. et al. An Open Annotation
   Ontology for Science on Web 3.0.
   5. Stevens, R., Malone, J., Williams, S. et al. Automating Generation of
   Textual Class Defnitions from OWL to English.
