Dear Colleagues,

*What:    Call for participation in the Bio-Ontologies SIG 2013 (
*Where: July 20, 2013, Berlin, Germany. (Co-located with ISMB/ECCB 2013)
When:   Submissions Due: April 12th, 2013 (Fri) @

   -  Notifications: May 10th, 2013 (Fri)
   -  Final Version Due: May 17th, 2013 (Fri)

Please forward to everyone who might be interested.*
The Bio-Ontologies SIG provides a forum for discussion of the latest
research in the application of ontologies and in the organisation,
presentation and dissemination of knowledge in the life sciences. In its
15th year, Bio-Ontologies is one of the longest running SIG at ISMB. Papers
are invited in areas, such as the applications of bio-ontologies, newly
developed bio-ontologies, and the use of ontologies in data sharing
standards. Example topics include (but not limited to):

Applications of ontologies in bioinformatics

   - Hypothesis Testing Platforms
   - Use of Ontologies in Data Standards
   - "Flash updates" on Newly Developed or Existing Bio-Ontologies
   - Bio-Curation Platforms
   - Automated Annotation Pipelines
   - Efforts using ontologies for Bio-NLP or Information Retrieval
   - Semantic Web Enabled Applications

Advances in development of biomedical ontologies

   - Collaborative Ontology Authoring and Peer-Review Mechanisms
   - Automated Ontology Learning
   - Mapping between Ontologies
   - Research in Ontology Evaluation
   - Using games for Ontology review and evaluation

We invite 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 for a flash update on the poster. Flash updates are for short
talks (5 min) giving the salient new developments on existing public
ontologies. Unsuccessful papers will automatically be considered for poster
*Best regards,*
