*Call for Papers for the Bio-Ontologies Community of Special Interest
(COSI)part of the Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology
(ISMB)July 6-10, 2018 in Chicago, USABio-Ontologies
(http://www.bio-ontologies.org.uk <http://www.bio-ontologies.org.uk>) is an
ISMB Community of Special Interest (COSI) <https://www.iscb.org/iscb-cosis>
that covers the latest and most innovative research in the application of
ontologies and more generally the organisation, presentation and
dissemination of knowledge in biomedicine and the life
sciences.Bio-Ontologies provides a vibrant environment for reporting novel
methods and sharing experiences on the construction and application of
ontologies in health care and the life sciences. The informal nature of the
event offers a constructive environment to nurture discussion of innovative
and scientifically sound work that range from preliminary to completed,
from both young and experienced investigators alike. Bio-Ontologies
participants also benefit from a strongly interdisciplinary setting, where
ISMB attendees intermingle with members from American Medical Informatics
Association (AMIA) and the W3C’s Healthcare and Life Sciences Community
Group (HCLSCG), thereby increasing impact through broader dissemination and
enabling new and exceptional collaborations.Selected papers will be invited
to submit an extended version of their manuscript to the bio-ontologies
theme in the Journal of Biomedical Semantics.Key Dates Submission Deadline:
April 13, 2018 (final deadline) Acceptance Notification: April 30, 2018
Late Poster Deadline: May 1, 2018 Early Bird Registration: June 7, 2018
Bio-Ontologies track @ ISMB: July 9-10, 2018 Special Issue deadline:
October 1, 2018Call for SubmissionsWe invite the submission of short
papers, flash updates and posters for presentation at the Bio-Ontologies.
Papers are invited in the following three areas:1. The development of
biological and biomedical ontologies to represent and structure
knowledge.2. Ontology-focused tools and methods (e.g. ontology engineering,
ontology alignment, biocuration, information extraction, text mining, data
integration) featuring biological use cases.3. Biological applications of
ontologies (e.g. ontologies use in data mining, machine learning,
visualization, knowledge graphs, semantic query answering)Deadlines and
Presentation LengthWe welcome short research papers (4 pages), flash
updates (1 page) and poster abstracts (1 page) as a PDF using the
Bio-ontologies template for papers (https://goo.gl/KD7Bmi
<https://goo.gl/KD7Bmi>) or updates/posters (https://goo.gl/1OkQSH
<https://goo.gl/1OkQSH>).  Submissions can be made on the easychair site
<https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ismb2018abstracts>). Please note
that accepted submissions require that one author present the work. The
research presentations are normally allocated between 20-25 minutes while
flash updates are presented in 5-10 minutes. The presenter must register
and pay to attend the conference and the presenter should identify
themselves as the corresponding author during the submission process.Review
Criteria 1. Relevance, interest, and value of the topic to conference
attendees.2. Significance of the problem, such that reviewers understand
the potential for impact.3. Novelty of the approach, including suitable
treatment of related work.4. Soundness and potential for reproducibility of
the proposed method.5. Quality of writing, including readability and
clearly stated contribution(s)Organizing CommitteeMichel Dumontier,
