Third Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Workshop-Ontology and Imaging Informatics

Tuesday, June 24, 2014
8:30 am - 5:30 pm
Ramada Inn and Conference Center
See Attached link for Details
Department of Pathology and Anatomy, Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Affinity Group, National Center for Biomedical Ontology

The goal of this workshop is to identify ways to advance interoperability of biomedical imaging data across the CTSA Consortium and beyond.

- Day 0 of the workshop will consist in a tutorial providing an introduction to biomedical imaging ontology.

- Day 1 of the workshop will consist in an overview of major contributions to biomedical imaging in radiology and digital pathology with a view towards coordination and exchange of ideas.

- Day 2 will consist of a number of breakout groups addressing specific goals of their respective communities. One such group will focus on a draft Digital Pathology Image Ontology, which will be distributed to interested participants in advance. Another group will address the role of ontology in the coordination of research across the CTSA consortium.

The meeting will conclude with reports from the breakout groups and with a session devoted to future plans.

Examples of the types of subtopics to be addressed include:

LIMS interoperability
Immunohistochemistry Imaging
Standards for biomedical video data
The Open Microscopy Environment (OME)
The Radiology Gamuts Ontology
Aperio ePathology
Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI)

Space for this meeting is limited and intending participants are encouraged to write to Barry Smith as soon as possible.
