Call For Papers

The ICBO Early Career Track offers a venue for students and early career researchers and practitioners to present work relevant to the conference aims and topics. ICBO 2015 is soliciting submissions of novel (not previously published nor concurrently submitted) research papers in the areas of the application of ontologies to biomedical problems, ontology design and ontology interoperability, at any stage in the process from data creation to use in applications or scientific analyses.

Eligibility criteria for submission to the Early Career Track are as follows:

the author or the first author is either a) a student (undergraduate, graduate) or b) within 5 years of their first industrial or postdoctoral academic appointment
the submission is in the form of an extended abstract
the length of the submission is 2 pages maximum following the conference’s paper preparation guidelines (see the conference’s author instructions for further details).
It is essential that presenters satisfy the first of the above criteria.

Submissions through the main conference's EasyChair: Selecting “Early Career” in the Topics list.

Original submissions to the Early Career Track are encouraged. However, work presented in a submission rejected from the main conference track may be presented in a submission to the Early Career Track provided the eligibility criteria are satisfied.

Additional information:

Final versions of accepted abstracts will be published within a dedicated section of the conference proceedings.
A Best Early Career Paper Award will be selected by the Organising Committee and conferred to the author(s) at the conference.
