The decade since the publication of the Semantic Web article in
Scientific American in 2001 has witnessed a multitude of novel
healthcare and bioinformatics applications that builds upon the open
integration capability of the Semantic Web.  This theme issue is
intended to collect typical examples of how the semantically enriched
information has both enhanced our knowledge and expanded the impact on
biomedical research in terms of scientific knowledge modeling,
logical-based hypothesis checking, semantic data integration, service
composition, integrated knowledge discovery and data mining.  New
semantic technologies have also introduced exciting new areas of
biomedical endeavor. Overview articles are particularly welcomed.

Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not
limited to) the following:

	•	Open Linked data for healthcares and bioinformatics
	•	Ontology modeling for healthcare and bioinformatics
	•	Ontology-based biomedical network modeling
	•	Semantic data analysis for healthcares and bioinformatics.
	•	Semantic Web for Translational Medicine
	•	Semantic Web for Bioinformatics Research
	•	Semantic Web for Clinical Informatics


Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this
special theme issue  on or before June 10, 2011. All submissions must
be original and may not be under review by another publication.
MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at  All submitted papers
