Workshop on Semantic Systems Biology 2013

July 7th, Montreal, Canada

Submission deadline: April 15th

The Workshop on Semantic Systems Biology 2013 (SSB2013) will be held as
part of the International Conference on Biomedical Ontologies (ICBO2013) at
Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, on July 7th, 2013. 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)

Semantic systems biology is an emerging interdisciplinary area that
combines computational biology with formal knowledge representation and
reasoning in order to accurately build, annotate, publish, share and
validate facts and computational models concerning biological entities and

The Workshop on Semantic Systems Biology aims to bring together individuals
who undertake research, build and use tools and technologies pertinent to
semantic systems biology. We seek presentations of new or enhanced
ontologies, ‘omics datasets, and innovative tools for working with
semantically annotated large scale datasets, models, simulations and
results. A series of flash talks gives researchers the possibility to
advertise their ongoing work.  Finally, the workshop will provide an
opportunity for participants to have a frank discussion about the state of
the art and what we as a community need to focus on in the next 3 years.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* ontologies & terminologies in computational systems biology
* knowledge representation and semantic annotation of models, simulations
and results
* semantic web technologies for description, integration, analysis, query
and discovery of model-related knowledge
* applications of ontologies in computational systems
* semantic platforms for authoring, executing, and visualizing models and
* semantics in collaborative model development

We welcome the submission of long research papers (up to 7 pages), short
research papers (up to 4 pages), position papers and late breaking reports
(up to 1 page) via Easychair until April 15, 2013.
