The Ninth International Conference on Data Integration in the Life
Sciences 2013 (DILS2013)
http://www.unbsj.ca/sase/csas/data/ws/dils2013/index.html will be held
at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada on July 11-12, 2013.
The conference aim is to foster discussion, exchange, and innovation
in research and development in the areas of data integration and data
management for the life sciences. Researchers and professionals from
biology, medicine, computer science and engineering are invited to
share their knowledge and experience. The event is part of the
Semantic Trilogy 2013 featuring:

International Conference on Biomedical Ontologies (ICBO 2013)
Canadian Semantic Web Symposium (CSWS 2013)
Data Integration in the Life Sciences (DILS 2013)

Topics of Interest: http://www.unbsj.ca/sase/csas/data/ws/dils2013/themes.html

DILS provides a forum for the discussion of various aspects of data
integration andmanagement in the life sciences, including challenges
and technical solutions to address them. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to:

* Architectures and data management techniques for the life sciences
* Query processing and optimization for biological data
* Biological data sharing and update propagation
* Integration of genotypic and phenotypic data
* Biomedical data integration issues in eScience
* Quality assurance in integrated data repositories
* Modeling of life sciences data
* Query formulation assistance for scientists
* Data integration in clinical and translational research
* Mining integrated life sciences data and text resources
* Standards for biomedical data integration and annotation
* Biomedical metadata management (including provenance)
* Challenges and opportunities with "big data" in the life sciences
* Ethical, legal and social issues with biomedical data integration
* Scientific results arising from innovative data integration solutions
* Exposing biomedical data for integration (APIs, Linked Open Data,
SPARQL endpoints)
* Laboratory information management systems in biology (including
workflow systems)

Submissions: http://www.unbsj.ca/sase/csas/data/ws/dils2013/submissions.html

All accepted submissions will be published as part of the Conference
Proceedings in Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics, as part of Springer's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Papers are to be prepared using
LNCS templates and submitted via EasyChair. Details will follow in the
full Call for Papers in December 2012

1. Long Research Paper (up to 15 pages) should satisfy the following
criteria: original research; novelty in methodology and/or in research
results; significant development with large potential for impact;
theoretical soundness and/or strong evaluation through demonstration
of
utility in applications.

2. Short Research Paper (up to 8 pages) should satisfy the following
criteria: original research; methodological soundness with either
novel methodology & application, or demonstrated improvement over
existing methods (with appropriate validation), or the use of existing
methodology but in novel application. Short papers are appropriate for
applied research or systems, or the development of new approaches.

3. Systems Paper (up to 4 pages) must describe the functionality,
availability, and an application of the system. The system itself must
be demonstrated at the conference.

4. Early Career Track (up to 8 pages) is to support the work of young
investigators. There will be an Early Career Track session for the
presentation of the papers. The ECT paper review and acceptance
criteria are the same as the short research papers. The staggered
submission dates allows submissions (from young investigators) that
are not accepted as long or short research papers to be revised and
re-submitted; as well as allow first time submissions from young
investigators to the Early Career Track directly.

5. Late Breaking Report (up to 2 pages) This track is for extended
abstracts of posters. A limited set of the peer-reviewed reports will
be selected to be presented as a flash talk. All reports must be
presented as posters. Late breaking reports should address a clearly
defined problem that is of interest to the DILS community. A late
breaking report is appropriate for interesting preliminary results;
and systems updates.

6. Highlights (up to 500 words) This track highlights original
peer-reviewed research with significant impact on data integration
research or life sciences research that is published between May 1,
2012 and May 1, 2013. The submission is a short abstract highlighting
the importance of the work for the DILS community. If the publication
is not open access, then the authors must make the paper available to
the review committee.
