Goals of the Workshop

Medicine, biology and life sciences produce hardly manageable and
comprehensible amounts of data, information, and knowledge. Their
computer-based processing, integration, as well as their conceptual
foundation and application presents ever new challenges to existing
methods of knowledge representation, data bases, and data analysis.
In the life sciences, enormous data sets are being produced in
connection with biological and medical experiments, aiming to unravel
biological interconnections for a better understanding in order to
offer patients the best possible therapies. Data management and data
processing in the life sciences ranges from the best possible
integration and usage of distributed, heterogeneous data to the best
possible obfuscation of medical data.

This workshop integrates workshops of two series: the workshop series
"Data in Life Sciences" and "Ontologies in Biomedicine and Life
Sciences" (OBML), thereby connecting two important areas of biomedical
research. This connection covers the overall spectrum of biomedical
information processing, from experimental data acquisition and data
management, across analysis, structuring and interpretation of data,
up to the development of structures of knowledge in the form of
ontologies with their various applications.

The workshop pursues the aim to gather scientists that work in these
fields in order to exchange ideas, to discuss new results and to
inspire collaboration. The workshop has an interdisciplinary
character. It fosters the collaboration between ontologists, computer
scientists, bio-informaticians, medical information scientists,
applied logicians, as well as cooperations with physicians,
bio-chemists, and biometricians.
