Dear Colleagues,

The Bio-Ontologies SIG provides a forum for discussion of the latest and
innovative research in the application of ontologies and in the
organisation, presentation and dissemination of knowledge in life sciences.
Bio-Ontologies is one of the longest running SIG.  We are interested in
innovative approaches to organizing 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 ones, and the use of ontologies
in data sharing standards. In addition, we invite submissions on using
ontologies for translational research as well as data-driven approaches to
evaluate ontologies. See the full list of subject areas at:
http://www.bio-ontologies.org.uk/call-for-participation.

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

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 provide a flash update.
Unsuccessful papers will automatically be considered for poster
presentation.

6-8 papers from the SIG are invited to submit an expanded version to a
special issue of the open access Journal of Biomedical Semantics. The
special issue with papers from 2011 (soon to be published at
http://www.jbiomedsem.com/supplements/3/S1), will include:

   1. Beisswanger E. et al .. Towards Valid and Reusable Reference
   Alignments - Ten Basic Quality Checks for Ontology Alignments and Their
   Application to Three Different Reference Data Sets
   2. Ciccarese P. et al .. Open semantic annotation of scientific
   publications using DOMEO
   3. Good B.M. et al .. Linking genes to diseases with a SNPedia-Gene Wiki
   mashup
   4. Jupp S. et al .. Logical Gene Ontology Annotations (GOAL): Exploring
   gene ontology annotations with OWL
   5. LePendu P. et al .. Annotation Analysis for Testing Drug Safety
   Signals using Unstructured Clinical Notes
   6. Tcheremenskaia O. et al .. OpenTox Predictive Toxicology Framework:
   toxicological ontology and semantic media wiki-based OpenToxipedia
   7. Tsatsaronis G. et al .. A Maximum-Entropy Approach for Accurate
   Document Annotation in the Biomedical Domain
