[go-friends] ICBO2015 - Call for workshops and tutorials

The International Conference on Biomedical Ontology (ICBO, will take place in beautiful
Lisbon, Portugal July 26-30 2015. We would like to invite you to submit
proposals to host tutorials and/or workshops. Other type of events
(clinics, hackathon) will also be considered.

TUTORIALS are educational events. They may be either for a full day or for
a half day. They should focus on one specific topic presented by one or two
experts and involve interaction with the audience. The organizers will be
responsible for advertising the tutorial. Tutorials can include hands-on
training, in which case the proposal should specify the anticipated
requirements (laptops, software to install, etc.).

WORKSHOPS provide a forum for the discussion of a specific topic through
individual paper presentations; in particular, they should have a specific
tangible outcome planned in advance. They may be for either a full day or a
half day. The organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop
and reviewing and selecting the contributions. Workshops can also include
interest group meetings, or meetings designed to disseminate the results of
a research project on a specific topic.

Workshop and tutorial proposals should be submitted to the easychair
website:, in the
workshops and tutorials track.

Each submission should include the title of the event, name, affiliation
and e-mail addresses of the proposers. It should include also a description
of the proposed event (maximum 200 words), including an explanation of how
the workshop/tutorial will contribute to the field of biomedical ontology.

Proposers should describe how they will advertise the event in order to
receive a sufficient number of submissions and participants and explain the
rationale for addressing their specific topic in the workshop/tutorial
rather than in the main conference. One important argument would be to
attract more people to ICBO. If the event has been organized in previous
editions of ICBO, please indicate some statistics regarding previous
attendance for better planning.

For more information, please contact icbo2015 at, indicating
