Preliminary Call For Papers: Workshop on Working with Multiple
Biomedical Ontologies    (01)

Workshop of the International Conference on Biomedical Ontology (ICBO 2011)
http://icbo.buffalo.edu/    (02)

26-27 July 2011, Buffalo, USA    (03)

++ Submission deadline: April 1, 2011 ++
++ Submission of short, longer        ++
++ or position papers invited         ++

The workshop intends to provide a report and discussion forum
concerning aspects of working with multiple biomedical ontologies.
Biomedical ontologies are often very large and nevertheless restricted
to delineated domains (e.g. anatomy, cells, diseases, genes). Thus
they present a dual challenge of managing their size and their
adequation to an intended scope. As a result, a number of issues arise
relating to the way biomedical ontologies may be either split or
combined. In application contexts, similar issues present themselves
when using ontologies in, for example, annotating large and diverse
datasets or when reasoning with multiple ontologies covering connected
domains. The workshop proposes to explore ways in which the rich
diversity of biomedical ontologies can be combined and used, in
particular, in multiple domain applications and at multiple scales.    (06)

Contributions on integration solutions for biomedical ontologies and
their applications are invited. Submissions of paper presentations
should be conducive to discussions and exchanges. Short papers,
position papers as well as longer papers (see submission instructions
for maximum length) on the following non-exhaustive list of topics are
invited.    (07)

Topics (indicative)
-------------------    (08)

* Combination of ontological terms from orthogonal ontologies    (09)

* Relations bridging divides between ontologies or between ontology terms    (010)

* Cross-products and generalisations    (011)

* Modularisation of large ontologies, especially through combination    (012)

* Reasoning with multiple, large ontologies    (013)

* Scope and domain specification of biomedical ontologies    (014)

* Theory, application and implementation for the above    (015)

* Lessons learnt from other domains than the biomedical one    (016)

------------    (017)

The submission process for the workshop follows ICBO conference
guidelines which can be found at http://icbo.buffalo.edu/cfp2011.html.
Indications and instructions are summarised and adapted below.    (018)

* Short papers, position papers as well as longer papers are invited.    (019)

* Full papers: Papers are limited to 2500 words, not including
abstract or references, and can be at most 10 pages inclusive in the
conference format.    (020)

* Format: Submissions must be in PDF and follow the Information for
LNCS Authors.    (021)

* Submission: Papers must be submitted through the ICBO Easychair
