Fifth Annual Bio-Ontologies Meeting

A Semantic Web of Bioinformatics Resources

8 August 2002

We would like to invite you to the fifth Annual Bio-Ontologies Meeting 
(Bio-Ontologies 2002), on August 8th in Edmonton,
Canada. This is immediately after the ISMB-02 August 3-7 in Edmonton. 
registration is available via http://www.ismb02/org.

This is usually a lively meeting; so submit abstracts and register as soon 
as possible. We usually have a large crowd (10% of ISMB attendees in the 
last two years), so come along to hear the latest developments in the 
exciting world of bio-ontologies.

The meeting details may be found via and any queries can be 
directed to robert.stevens at

Topics that will be discussed at the meeting will include, but not be 
limited to:

*      Presentation of ontologies for describing the content of 
bioinformatics resources accessible on the Web;
*     Presentation of ontologies for describing bioinformatics services 
available on the Web;
*     Exploitation of ontologically mark-up data and services;
*     Applications that use bio-ontologies to support the work of biologists;
*     Improving the collaboration between biologists developing ontology 
content and computer scientists who can provide
      ontology infra-structure;
*     Ontologies produced by members from various genomics and life-science 

Please submit two page abstracts (approximately 1000 words) to 
robert.stevens at by the end of June 2002. These abstracts will be
reviewed by a small programme committee. There will be three kinds of talk 
at the day-long meeting:

    1.A key-note address ;
    2.A selection of 25 minute long-talks;
    3.A selection of 10 minute short-talks.
