*** Topics ***

Ontologies are increasingly used in the semantic description of biological
and medical data from creation to publication and consumption by
semantically enabled applications. To be effective, such ontologies must be
of high quality and work well together. Therefore, issues like techniques
for ontology use, good ontology design, ontology maintenance, and ontology
coordination need to be addressed. The International Conference on
Biomedical Ontology (ICBO) series is designed to meet this need. ICBO 2012,
the third event in the highly successful series, will bring together
representatives of all major communities involved in ontology use and
development in biomedical research, health care, and related areas.

*** Call for Papers ***

ICBO 2012 is soliciting submissions of novel (not previously published nor
concurrently submitted) research papers in the areas of the application of
ontologies to biomedical problems, ontology design and ontology
interoperability, at any stage in the process of data creation to its use in
applications. Submissions will be welcome from a broad range of approaches
to ontology building and use. In particular, we would like to invite
contributions on these aspects of biomedical ontologies, as well as on the
use of such ontologies in knowledge management, knowledge discovery and
next-generation publishing. We will accept full-length papers (5 pages),
poster submissions (1 page abstracts), software demonstrations (2 page
abstracts or 5 page full application papers), and early career researcher
symposium submissions (2 page abstracts). We are also looking for
submissions of half-day or full-day workshops and tutorials. Workshops
should be working sessions with a specific outcome t
hat can be subsequently presented at the main conference. Tutorials are
educational events and may involve hands-on practicals.

Submission is via EasyChair
(, according to the
templates provided on the conference web site.
