Dear colleagues,

Just as a reminder, the deadline for submitting your contribution to the 
3rd International Workshop on Semantics for Biodiversity (S4BioDiv, 
<https://fusion.cs.uni-jena.de/s4biodiv2021>) is in one month from now.

The workshop will be co-located with the 12th ICBO 2021. This is a great 
opportunity to reach out to the community and make new connections.

We would be very pleased if you or members of your team would submit a 
paper and/or attend the workshop.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, and to 
spread the word to your colleagues.

Kind regards,

The organisation committee.


3rd International Workshop on Semantics for Biodiversity (S4BioDiv 2021)


In conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Biomedical 
Ontologies (ICBO 2021)

https://icbo2021.inf.unibz.it/ <https://icbo2021.inf.unibz.it/>

Bolzano, Italy, September 15 - 18, 2021

The workshop is being planned as a hybrid event, with face to face 
meetings held in Bolzano and a virtual participation option.

Workshop Description


Biodiversity deals with heterogeneous data and concepts generated from a 
large number of disciplines in order to build a coherent picture of the 
extent of life on earth. The presence of such a myriad of data resources 
makes integrative biodiversity research increasingly important,as well 
as challenging given the variety of ways in which data and information 
are produced and made available. The Semantic Web approach enhances data 
discoverability, sharing, interoperability and integration through a 
formalized conceptual environment providing common formats, standards 
and terminological resources.

This workshop aims to bring together computer scientists and biologists, 
working on Semantic Web approaches for biodiversity, ecology and related 
areas such as plant sciences, agronomy, agro-ecology or citizen science 
related to biodiversity. The goal is to exchange experiences, build a 
state of the art of realizations and challenges, and reuse and adapt 
solutions that have been proposed in other domains. The workshop focuses 
on presenting challenging issues and solutions for the design of high 
quality biodiversity information systems leveraging Semantic Web techniques.
