The National Center for Biomedical Ontology in collaboration with the Protein Ontology (PRO) and the Infectious Disease Ontology (IDO) Consortia will host a three-day dissemination workshop in Buffalo, NY on June 11-13, 2012.


Provisional goals of the meeting are:

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

Draft Schedule

Day 1: Monday, June 11, 2012: 10:00am-5:00pm

An Overview of Ontologies to Support Research in Immunology and Infectious Disease
Morning: GO, PRO, CL, IO, IEO
Immune pathway representations
Representation of cells used in experiments such as: PBMCs, splenocytes, adherent cells
Representation of immunology experiments using OBI
Representing epitope mapping experiments for IEDB
Afternoon: IDO and Its Extensions

Days 2 and 3: Tuesday and Wednesday, June 12-13, 2012

Practical Applications of Ontologies in Clinical Research with special reference to Flow Cytometry

Close, June 13, 4:00pm
