   potential for lasting impact. Papers should demonstrate theoretical
   soundness of the research and/or strong evaluation.
   - *Application papers:* up to 6 pages that report on original research
   with successful application demonstrated by an improvement over existing
   methods. Papers may include systems level approaches using established
   methodology in a novel application domain.
   - *Posters:*  Abstracts of 500 words reporting on early research results
   focusing on the design and application of semantic technologies in life
   science scenarios. Priority will be given to submissions offering a
   functional demo that can be shown at the conference.

Papers are to be prepared using *Springer's LNCS templates* and submitted *via
