Recognizing the increasing synergy in medical and biological ontology research and development, biomedical Knowledge Representation Working Group (KR-WG) of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) has chosen the Bio-Ontologies SIG as the venue of the KR-WG's biannual knowledge representation in medicine meetings (KR-MED, www.kr-med.org). Bio-Ontologies 2010 will serve as host to KR-MED 2010 in the biannual meeting series. In order to attend the biannual KR-MED meeting, please register for the Bio-Ontology SIG.
