Workshop on Semantic Systems Biology
Part of the Semantic Trilogy, Montreal, Canada, July 7th 2013

The Workshop on Semantic Systems Biology
aims to bring together individuals who undertake research, build and use tools and technologies pertinent to semantic systems biology. We seek presentations of new or enhanced ontologies, ‘omics datasets, and innovative tools for working with semantically annotated large scale datasets, models, simulations and results. A series of flash talks gives researchers the possibility to advertise their ongoing work.  Finally, the workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to have a frank discussion about the state of the art and what we as a community need to focus on in the next 3 years.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • ontologies & terminologies for modeling computational biology
  • ontologies & terminologies for simulation (and result data) in computational biology/medicine/neuroscience
  • semantic web technologies for description, integration, query and discovery of models, simulations and result data
  • semantic web technologies for biological data and analysis
  • semantic annotations of bio-models
  • applications of ontologies in computational systems biology/medicine/neuroscience
  • semantic platforms for undertaking and visualizing simulation results

We welcome four types of submissions:
  • short papers, up to 4 pages.
  • long papers, up to 7 pages.
  • position papers, up to 1 page.
  • late breaking reports, up to 1 page.

See the ICBO website for further information on the submission types.

*update* -- All submission are due on Friday, April 26 2013.
Notification of acceptance: May 12th, 2013

Please provide your submission in PDF format, using the Word or Latex template, and submit via the Easychair website.

The workshop will be complemented by a tutorial on a similar topic: An introduction to Semantic Biological Modeling and Simulation.
