The Bio-Ontologies SIG provides a forum for discussion of the latest
research in the application of ontologies and in the organisation,
presentation and dissemination of knowledge in the life sciences. In
its 15th year, Bio-Ontologies is one of the longest running SIG at
ISMB. Papers are invited in areas, such as the applications of
bio-ontologies, newly developed bio-ontologies, and the use of
ontologies in data sharing standards. Example topics include (but
not limited to):
Applications of ontologies in bioinformatics
Hypothesis Testing Platforms
Use of Ontologies in Data Standards
"Flash updates" on Newly Developed or Existing Bio-Ontologies
Automated Annotation Pipelines
Efforts using ontologies for Bio-NLP or Information Retrieval
Semantic Web Enabled Applications
Advances in development of biomedical ontologies
Collaborative Ontology Authoring and Peer-Review Mechanisms
Automated Ontology Learning
Mapping between Ontologies
Research in Ontology Evaluation
Using games for Ontology review and evaluation
We invite three types of submissions.
- Short papers, up to 4 pages.
- Poster abstracts, up to 1 page.
- Flash updates, up to 1 page
Following review, successful papers will be presented at the
Bio-Ontologies SIG. Poster abstracts will be provided poster space
and time will be allocated for a flash update on the poster. Flash
updates are for short talks (5 min) giving the salient new
developments on existing public ontologies. Unsuccessful papers will
automatically be considered for poster presentation.
