Abstract

The meeting focused on uses of ontologies, with a special focus on spatial ontologies, in addressing the ever increasing needs faced by biology and medicine to cope with ever expanding quantities of data. To provide effective solutions computers need to integrate data deriving from myriad heterogeneous sources by bringing the data together within a single framework. The meeting brought together leaders in the field of what are called ‘top-level ontologies’ to address this issue, and to establish strategies among leaders in the field of biomedical ontology for the creation of interoperable biomedical ontologies which will serve the goal of useful data integration.
