The National Center for Biomedical Ontology will organize an ontology Tutorial and Workshop, tentatively planned for spring 2012. The Tutorial will provide an introduction to ontology for beginners, focusing on the needs of CTSA clinical scientists. The Workshop will provide an opportunity for those involved in ontology-related projects across the CTSA Consortium to review what has been achieved thus far and consider plans for the future.
