Dear Colleagues,

The Bio-Ontologies SIG (www.bio-ontologies.org.uk 
<http://www.bio-ontologies.org.uk>) provides a forum for discussion of 
the latest and most innovative research in the application of ontologies 
and more generally 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

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.

We invite submissions on a range of topics including, but not limited to:
   - Discoveries enabled by Scientific Wikis.
   - Semantic Web enabled applications (such as for enhanced publishing 
and for capturing scientific discourse)
   - Use of Ontologies in Data Standards
   - Role of Bio-ontologies in Health 2.0
   - Collaborative Curation Platforms
   - Collaborative Ontology Authoring and Peer-Review Mechanisms
   - Automated ontology learning
   - Automated Annotation Pipelines
   - Mapping between ontologies
   - Research in Ontology Languages and its Effect on Bio-Ontologies
   - "Flash updates" on Newly Developed or Existing Bio-Ontologies

  We are inviting three types of submissions:
   - Short papers, up to 4 pages.
   - Poster abstracts, up to 1 page.
   - Flash updates, up to 1 page

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

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.

Kind regards,
the organisers
