Dear Colleague,

This is a final reminder that registration is still open for the second
conference on Standards and Ontologies for Functional Genomics (SOFG)
Meeting, which will be held on October 23-26, 2004 in Philadelphia, PA
USA. (You may disregard the Sept. 23 deadline mentioned in the original
announcement, which appears below.)

We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this mail via different

Abstracts submitted by Sept. 10 will be considered for oral
presentation by Organizers and Session Chairs. Abstracts submitted
after Sept 10 will be considered for poster session only. Abstract
submissions will be reproduced and included with the conference
notebook material. If you wish to submit, please follow the

The conference will focus on advances in the development of standards
and ontologies to facilitate the exchange of biological information by
computers and computation analysis applications. A particular emphasis
will be on developments in ontological annotation systems for the
genomics and bioinformatics communities. Toward this end, students and
established investigators from different areas of computer science,
experimental biology, and bioinformatics will have an opportunity to
share new ideas, demonstrate new tools and applications, and identify
potential collaborations.

Topics include:
* Ontological Systems: Theory and Development
* Ontologies for Biology Systems
* Ontology Systems Development: Electronic Demonstrations
* Thesauri, Nomenclatures and the Biomedical Literature
* Standards and Protocols
* Functional Genomics Applications
* From Resource to Application
