*Call for Papers for the 1st International Workshop on Oncology and 
Ontology, ONCONTO 2017*

*In conjunction with the International Conference on Biomedical Ontology 

September 13-15, 2017 in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

*** Submission Deadline: July 1, 2017  ***



*Workshop Theme and Topics*

To effectively treat and prevent cancer, we need to bring together data 
from multiple domains, such as electronic medical records, genomic data, 
tissue data, epidemiological data, and clinical trial data. Personalized 
medicine requires the integration of clinical and research findings from 
multiple disciplines, and cancer strikes each affected individual in 
a unique and specific way from the molecular, cellular, anatomical, 
genetic, and emotional perspectives. We aim to convene an 
interdisciplinary group of ontologists and cancer researchers through 
the *ONCONTO* (oncology and ontology) workshop in order to advance the 
ontological representation of cancer and related entities to support 
both broader research in the domain and personalized treatment approaches.

Topics include:

  * Revision and expansion of existing ontological resources for
    representing cancer and related biomedical entities creation of new
    ontologies for the oncology domain that address gaps in representation.
  * Ontology-based data analysis of cancer patient or basic research
    data related to epidemiology, etiology, genomics, diagnosis, and
    treatment of cancer.
  * Use of ontologies for translational research related to cancer; and
    exploratory research or position papers related to ontologies and

We will organize our workshop into different sections based on the 
topics of presentations. Presentation time allocation will be determined 
after the number of each submission type is finalized. Panel discussions 
at the end of each section will be arranged based on the time availability.


*Submission *

For the paper submission, we will allow three submission formats:

  * full research papers (6-10 pages) format
  * work in progress / late breaking results (2-4 pages), and
  * a statement of interest (one page) for podium presentation.

The paper format will be the same as the format used in ICBO.

All the papers will be submitted and handled through Easy Chair:
