Call for Papers: Ontologies for Biomedical Systems

3rd Special Track on Ontologies for Biomedical Systems for 21s IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems. The 21th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2008) will be held on June 17-19, 2008 at University of Jyväskylä, Finland. CBMS 2008 is held in cooperation with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems, University of Jyväskylä.

Biomedical Ontologies have developed in an uncoordinated way, often reflecting mere relations of 'association' between what are called 'concepts', and serving primarily the purposes of information extraction from on-line biomedical literature and databases. In recent years, we have learned a great deal about the criteria which must be satisfied if ontology is to allow true information integration and automatic reasoning across data and information derived from different sources. The goal of this track is to survey existing biomedical ontologies and reform them in such a way as to allow true information integration in biomedical domain. Authors are invited to submit original papers exploring the theories, techniques, and applications of biomedical ontologies. Papers are invited (but not limited) to the following themes:

  • Biomedical Ontologies for Genetics, Proteomics, Diseases, Privacy etc.
  • Conceptual Models for Biological and Medical Data
  • Semantics in Biological Data Modeling
  • Use of semantics to manage Interoperation in Biomedical Databases
  • Semantic Web technologies and formalisms for Biomedical Data
  • Ontology representation and exchange languages for bioinformatics
  • Biomedical Ontologies and OWL
  • Biological Data Integration and Management using Ontologies
  • Biomedical Data Engineering using Ontologies
  • Application of Biomedical Ontologies for Heterogeneous Database Access
  • Query Optimization Techniques for Biomedical Database using Ontologies
  • Support of Ontologies for Biological Information Retrieval and Web Services
  • Change Management in Biomedical Ontologies
  • Tools for Development and Management of Biomedical Ontologies

Important dates:
28 January 2008 Paper Submission Due
28 February 2008 Notification of acceptance
28 March 2008 Final camera-ready paper due
28 March 2008 Pre-registration deadline
