** Submissions Due: April 8th, 2016 (Fri) **

The Bio-Ontologies SIG provides a forum for discussion of the latest
research in the application of ontologies and in the organization,
presentation and dissemination of knowledge in the life sciences. In
its 18th year, Bio-Ontologies is one of the longest running SIG at
ISMB. The 2016 meeting will be a two day SIG, with the second day
being the “Phenotype Day” (http://phenoday2016.bio-lark.org/) which
will be a session focused on the systematic description of phenotypes.
Phenotype Day will bring together researchers across many disciplines
to discuss phenotype-related issues and resources, and to share their
experience with defining, representing, processing and using phenotype
data. We strongly encourage relevant submissions directly to the
special Phenotype Day event.

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):

* Semantic Web Enabled Applications
* Bio-Curation Platforms
* Use of Ontologies in Data Standards
* Role of Bio-Ontologies in the Learning Health System
* Collaborative Ontology Authoring
* Deep learning with Ontologies
* Automated Annotation Pipelines
* Reasoning with ontologies
* Use of ontologies in text mining applications
* Ontology growth, mapping and repair
* Research in Ontology Evaluation
* "Flash updates" on Newly Developed or Existing Bio-Ontologies

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 new developments on existing public
ontologies. Unsuccessful papers will automatically be considered for
poster and flash update presentation.
