ICBO: program now available.

To be maximally effective, ontologies must work well together. But as ontologies become more commonly used, the problems involved in achieving coordination in ontology development become ever more urgent. To address these problems there is a need for an overarching conference which brings together representatives of all major communities involved in the development and application of ontologies in biomedicine and related areas. ICBO is designed to meet this need. Please see their website for the Call for Papers, which has been extended to March 7. ICBO will be held July 24-26, 2009, in conjunction with four days of tutorials and classes in ontology to be scheduled from July 20-23, 2009. ICBO is co-sponsored by the University at Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences, the National Center for Ontological Research (NCOR), and the NBCO.
