Training Course in Logic for Biomedical Research

IFOMIS20-23 June 2007, Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany
This three-day training course is designed to provide a basic introduction to the field of biomedical ontology and to enhance awareness of current developments and best practices in ontology in the life sciences, focusing on logic and computational aspects. It will include a debate on the future role of OWL DL in biomedical ontology development.

Faculty

  • Barry Smith: Introduction to Terminology, Ontology, and the Philosophy of Language for Biomedical Researchers
  • Deborah McGuinness: The Future of the Semantic Web
  • Fabian Neuhaus: Introduction to Logic and Semantics for Biomedical Researchers
  • Alan Rector: Introduction to Programming with OWL and Its Problems
  • Nigam Shah: Introduction to OWL and its Alternatives for Biomedical Researchers

Attendees who might find this course worthwhile include:

  • developers and users of biomedical ontologies, terminologies and coding systems,
  • developers and users of electronic patient record systems,
  • biologists and physicians interested in the possibilities of modern ontologies.

The number of participants is restricted to about 30 to maximize possibilities for intense discussion.
