Training Course in Logic for Biomedical Research
Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany, 20-23 June 2007
This three-day training course is designed to
provide a basic introduction to the field of
biomedical ontology and to enhance awareness of
current developments and best practices in
ontology in the life sciences, focusing on logic
and computational aspects. It will include a
debate on the future role of OWL DL in biomedical ontology development.
Barry Smith: Introduction to Terminology,
Ontology, and the Philosophy of Language for Biomedical Researchers
Deborah McGuinness: The Future of the Semantic Web
Fabian Neuhaus: Introduction to Logic and Semantics for Biomedical Researchers
Alan Rector: Introduction to Programming with OWL and Its Problems
Nigam Shah: Introduction to OWL and its
Alternatives for Biomedical Researchers
Attendees who might find this course worthwhile include:
· developers and users of biomedical
ontologies, terminologies and coding systems,
· developers and users of electronic patient record systems,
· biologists and physicians interested in
the possibilities of modern ontologies.
The number of participants is restricted to about
30 to maximize possibilities for intense discussion.
