*Call for Participation for the Bio-Ontologies SIG at ISMB 2014*

*What*: Bio-Ontologies SIG and Phenotype Day
*When*: July 11 and July 12, 2014
*Where*: co-located with ISMB 2014 in Boston, MA
** Submissions Due: April 11th, 2014 (Fri) **
*More*: http://www.bio-ontologies.org.uk/call-for-participation

The 2014 meeting will be a two day SIG, with *July 12th as "Phenotype Day"*
 (http://phenoday2014.bio-lark.org/) which is a joint session with the
Bio-Link SIG focused on the systematic description of phenotypic variation.
Phenotype Day is an event to discuss phenotype-related issues and
resources, and to share your experience in defining, representing,
processing and using phenotype data. We strongly encourage relevant
submission directly to the special Phenotype Day event.

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
17th 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
- Role of Bio-Ontologies in Health 2.0

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
and flash update presentation.
