ONTOBRAS 2023 - 16th Seminar on Ontology Research in Brazil

(held with the 14th International Conference on Biomedical Ontology - ICBO 2023)

August 28 to September 01, 2023, Brasília – DF, Brasil

The Seminar on Ontology Research in Brazil (ONTOBRAS) aims to bring together the community of researchers and students investigating Ontology in Computer Science and Information Science, as well as professionals in the information industry, providing opportunities and a scientific environment to exchange knowledge on theories, methods, languages and tools for ontology engineering and experiences in applying ontologies to solve various problems.

ONTOBRAS aims to expand and strengthen the Ontology community in Brazil, through the exchange of experiences among researchers, students and professionals, and by encouraging proximity between Academia and Industry, allowing cutting-edge solutions designed in these environments to influence real applications in different sectors.

Additionally, students whose research regards ontologies will have in the Doctoral and Masters Consortium on Ontologies (WTDO) a tailored opportunity to discuss their proposals with experts and receive feedback to advance their works.

This year, ONTOBRAS will be held with the 14th International Conference on Biomedical Ontology (ICBO 2023).

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit theoretical, technical, and practical research contributions that directly or indirectly deal with the topics of interest presented in the call for papers. Papers ranging from philosophical and theoretical foundations to new technologies and innovative applications are welcome.
