ICBO 2011

Second International Conference on Biomedical Ontology
July 26-30,  2011
Buffalo, New York

The deadline for workshop and tutorial proposals for the ICBO conference is
February 1, 2011

TUTORIALS are educational events. They may be either for a full day or for a
half day. They should focus on one specific topic presented by one or two
experts and involve interaction with the audience. Tutorials can include
hands-on training, in which case the proposal should specify the exact
requirements (laptops, software to install, etc.).

WORKSHOPS are half-day or full-day scientific events. They are intended to
provide a forum for the discussion of a specific topic through individual
paper presentations. The workshop organizers will be responsible for
advertising the workshop and reviewing and selecting the contributions.
Workshops can be events focusing on a specific topic; they can also include
interest group meetings, or meetings designed to disseminate the results of
a research project on a specific topic. Workshop and tutorial proposals
should be submitted to the easychair website:


Each submission should include the title of the event, name, affiliation,
mailing and e-mail addresses of the proposers. It  should include also a
description of the proposed event (maximum 200 words), including an
explanation of how the workshop/tutorial will contribute to the field of
biomedical ontology. Proposals must include, in addition, a short CV of the
proposer explaining their qualifications for the proposed event, including
experience in teaching and/or in organizing scientific events.

Workshop proposers should additionally provide names of at least two program
committee members who can review their proposal and should describe how they
will advertise the workshop in order to receive a sufficient number of
submissions and participants. They should also explain the rationale for
addressing their specific topic in the workshop rather than in the main
conference. One important argument for a workshop would be to attract more
people to ICBO. Papers accepted for workshops will be published together
with the ICBO 2011 on-site proceedings.

The organizers of ICBO 2011:

Barry Smith, University at Buffalo (Conference Chair)
Alan Ruttenberg, University at Buffalo (Scientific Chair)
Olivier Bodenreider, National Library of Medicine (Co-Chair)
Maryann Martone, University of California at San Diego (Co-Chair)
