The ICBO and FOIS 2012 conferences will host a joint Early Career Symposium. 
This event is designed to provide an opportunity for current PhD students 
and postdoctoral researchers to give a short presentation of their research 
with ample time for feedback and mentorship. It will also allow participants 
to network with other early career scientists in ontology and biomedicine. 
While attendance is open to anyone registered for one of the main 
conferences, presenters should be active doctoral students or postdoctoral 


Intending participants should submit an extended abstract, which may be a 
description of their current or planned research, an abstract of their PhD 
proposal, or a description of a related issue such as methodology. The 
research should either have a significant ontology component already or a 
plan to utilize ontologies in the future. All topics that fall into the 
scope of the conference are welcome.

Submission is via EasyChair 
(, according to the 
template provided on the conference web site (up to two pages):


Presentations at the ECS will be given by doctoral or early postdoctoral 
researchers which have to register for the ECS. Accepted submissions will be 
presented as short talks (timing will depend on the final number of accepted 
submissions), with additional time for questions and discussion. Accepted 
submissions will be published in a symposium booklet (PDF).


A limited number of travel grants for the conferences may become available. 
Interested applicants should send an e-mail to ludger.jansen at 
We will contact them with further details on how to submit an application 
once the funds have been secured.
