NCBO Dissemination and Outreach: Future Events
- Paris, November 29, 2012
- European Bioinformatics Institute, Hinxton, UK, April 18-19, 2013
- This course is aimed at those working in the development and implementation of biomedical applications and who wish to understand how ontologies can help with tasks such as annotation of data, searching and data integration. The course is suitable for both academics and industry alike, including advanced PhD students, research scientists and software developers. It is expected that those attending the course will already have some basic familiarity with what an ontology is though an overview of the basic features of an ontology will be given. There will be some exercises involving the use of Java and with using RESTful Web services so some understanding of Java would be required if you wish to participate in these exercises.
- Stanford University, Stanford, CA, April 29-30, 2013
- Registration and Meeting Logistics here
- Buffalo, NY, May 15-16, 2013
- The goal of this meeting is to enhance ontology coordination in relation to plant genomics, proteomics and related fields. A special focus will be the ontological treatment of diseases and phenotypes in relation to all organisms.
- Orlando, FL, February 11-12, 2013
- This is the second meeting of the new IKFC Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Affinity Group which has been established to leverage the use of common ontologies to support different aspects of information-driven clinical and translational research. The focus of the meeting is to explore new and existing uses of common ontologies to support sharing and discovery of data and resources, researcher networking, and particularly to support the evaluation of research.
