The call for papers below hopefully makes interesting reading for Ontologists.
However, the linguistic "Semantics" needed in LBD has almost nothing in common with technical "Semantics" in the SW so far, IMHO.
Does anyone see a bridge topic (B) between LBD (A) and SW (C) ?

The First International Workshop on the role of Semantic Web in Literature-Based Discovery
Call For Papers
Literature-Based Discovery (LBD) is characterized by uncovering hidden but novel information implicit in non-interacting literatures. The notion of LBD was first proposed by Don R. Swanson over two decades ago when he postulated that two concepts (A, C) may be logically related through some intermediate concept (B), common to seemingly disjoint literatures. This seminal idea has largely influenced efforts towards LBD automation in the biomedical domain and LBD continues to be an integral part of the evolution of biomedical science. Primarily, LBD has been instrumental in supplementing and guiding scientific experiments that lead to innovations in diagnosis, treatment and preventions mechanisms.
Much of the early LBD research however, relied almost entirely on Information Retrieval (IR) techniques, such as term and concept co-occurrence, to uncover unknown associations in the large volume of scientific literature now publicly available. Only recently has significant attention been devoted to semantics-based techniques that leverage Semantic Web technologies to exploit the meaning of associations between concepts to facilitate LBD. While generally more intuitive than IR techniques, the feasibility of semantics-based approaches has not been fully demonstrated. Many challenges still exist. Some of these include:
By engaging researchers from both the Semantic Web and LBD communities, we anticipate an exchange that will facilitate the advancement of LBD by exploiting available Semantic Web resources. Researchers are encouraged to submit original manuscripts on the application of Semantic Web technologies, representations and techniques to Literature-Based Discovery.
Some specific research topics include (but are not limited to):
Varun Bhagwan, IBM Research
Peter Bruza, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
Gully Burns, ISI, University of Southern California
Marcelo Fiszman, National Library of Medicine, NLM
Dimitar Hristovski, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
Ramakanth Kavuluru, University of Kentucky
Halil Kilicoglu, Concordia University
Feifan Liu, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Erik van Mulligen, ErasmusMC University Rotterdam, Netherlands
Cartic Ramakrishnan, ISI, University of Southern California
Padmini Srinivasan, University of Iowa
Krishnaprasad Thirunarayan, Wright State University
Bartlomiej Wilkowski, Statens Serum Institut, Copenhagen, Denmark
Meliha Yetisgen-Yildiz, University of Washington
Dr. Trevor Cohen, University of Texas, Houston
The workshop will solicit the submission of original research papers (4-6 pages) addressing analytical, theoretical and/or practical aspects of the role of Semantic Web techniques and technologies in Literature-based Discovery.
Electronic submissions (in PDF or Postscript format) are required. Selected participants will be asked to submit their revised papers in a format to be specified at the time of acceptance. Please make submissions using the online submission system: http://wi-lab.com/cyberchair/2012/bibm12/cbc_index.html
Due date for full workshop papers submission: July 30, 2012 (23:59 pm Hawaii Time)
