Training Course in Logic for Biomedical Research

Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany, 20-23 June 2007

This three-day training course is designed to 
provide a basic introduction to the field of 
biomedical ontology and to enhance awareness of 
current developments and best practices in 
ontology in the life sciences, focusing on logic 
and computational aspects. It will include a 
debate on the future role of OWL DL in biomedical ontology development.


Barry Smith: Introduction to Terminology, 
Ontology, and the Philosophy of Language for Biomedical Researchers

Deborah McGuinness: The Future of the Semantic Web

Fabian Neuhaus: Introduction to Logic and Semantics for Biomedical Researchers

Alan Rector: Introduction to Programming with OWL and Its Problems

Nigam Shah: Introduction to OWL and its 
Alternatives for Biomedical Researchers

Attendees who might find this course worthwhile include:
·         developers and users of biomedical 
ontologies, terminologies and coding systems,
·         developers and users of electronic patient record systems,
·         biologists and physicians interested in 
the possibilities of modern ontologies.
The number of participants is restricted to about 
30 to maximize possibilities for intense discussion.
