The National Center for Biomedical Ontology (NCBO) in collaboration with the Protein Ontology (PRO) and the Infectious Disease Ontology (IDO) will host a three-day dissemination workshop in Buffalo, NY on June 11-13, 2012. Day 1 will provide a survey of current ontology-based research in immunology and infectious disease; Day 2 will be focused on flow cytometry; Day 3 will include a session devoted to the use of ontologies to assist clinicians working with infectious disease data, and a session on the Ontology for General Medical Science.


Provisional goals of the meeting are:

To identify and coordinate activities on-going in immunology ontology and related fields, with special attention to the use of ontologies to support clinical data analysis in flow cytometry and other fields.


This meeting is free for registered participants. Space is limited and those interested in participating should contact Barry Smith as soon as possible.
