The long-standing ISMB Bio-Ontologies SIG is in its tenth consecutive 
year. This year the workshop will have a celebratory and reflective 
discussion on "Bio-Ontologies: ten years past and looking to the future".

About the Bio-Ontologies SIG workshop
The workshop will continue offer an informal environment for 
presentation and discussion of ontologies and their role in providing a 
mechanism for organising, sharing and reconciling data. This year, to 
celebrate its tenth anniversary, we have invited four presenters from 
the first bio-ontologies tutorial and meeting organisers to sit on a 
panel, namely: Mark Musen, Peter Karp, Russ Altman and Steffen 

They will be asked to present positions on the following questions:
1. What has been the best thing to have happened in bio-ontologies in 
the past ten years?
2. What has been the worst thing to have happened in bio-ontologies in 
the past ten years?
3. How must bio-ontologies progress in the next ten years?
4. How must bio-ontologies not progress in the next ten years

Program Committee
Abstracts have been reviewed by the Program Committee, including the
