Goals of the Workshop

Medicine, biology and life sciences produce hardly manageable and comprehensible amounts of data, information, and knowledge. Their computer-based processing, integration, as well as their conceptual foundation and application presents ever new challenges to existing methods of knowledge representation, data bases, and data analysis. In the life sciences, enormous data sets are being produced in connection with biological and medical experiments, aiming to unravel biological interconnections for a better understanding in order to offer patients the best possible therapies. Data management and data processing in the life sciences ranges from the best possible integration and usage of distributed, heterogeneous data to the best possible obfuscation of medical data.

This integrated workshop covers the overall spectrum of biomedical information processing, from experimental data acquisition and data management, across analysis, structuring and interpretation of data, up to the development of structures of knowledge in the form of ontologies with their various applications. The workshop pursues the aim to gather scientists that work in these fields in order to exchange ideas, to discuss new results and to inspire collaborations. The workshop has an interdisciplinary character. It fosters the collaboration between ontologists, computer scientists, bio-informaticians, medical information scientists, applied logicians, as well as the cooperation with physicians, bio-chemists, and biometricians.


The following topics are relevant, yet others related to these basic topics are likewise welcome:

for example, formal ontology of time and space, formal ontology of properties, roles and functions

Local Organization

The workshop is hosted by the Center for Medical Biometry and Medical Informatics, Medical Center – University of Freiburg.

Program Committee


Submissions to the workshop can be extended abstracts of 2 pages or papers of 4–6 pages (any such length is equally welcome; 6 pages is the strict maximum).
Contributions in English are highly recommended, but submissions in German can also be accepted.

The preferred file format for submissions is PDF, other admitted formats are Microsoft Word (DOC and DOCX) and Postscript (PS).
Please use the corresponding template for submissions, either the Microsoft Word template or the LaTeX template, for which there is a sample file.

(NB: These are the same templates as used for OBML 2010–2012. The templates were adopted with minor modifications from Bioinformatics, whose original ZIP archives of both templates comprise further files (a sample PDF and, for LaTeX, a sample TEX file and additional style files (STY)), cf. or (for LaTeX). Please ensure that you use one of the modified template files linked above – the ZIP archives contain unmodified versions, also those linked here.)

Contributions must be submitted via the EasyChair conference system at .

Accepted abstracts and papers will be printed in a proceedings volume (with ISSN) that will be distributed during the workshop integrated into a proceedings volume (with ISSN) that will be available electronically until the beginning of the workshop.
After the workshop authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to the Journal of Biomedical Semantics (JBMS). These manuscripts must then be written in English and will be re-reviewed. (Since 2012 invited papers appear separately in JBMS, e.g. in the series Biomedical Ontologies).
