3rd CTS Ontology Workshop

  • Tutorial: June 23, 2014
  • Workshop: June 24-25, 2014
  • Goals: The goal of this workshop is to identify ways to advance interoperability of biomedical imaging data across the CTSA Consortium and beyond.
The workshop will be preceded by a tutorial (Day 0) 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 allow 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 coordination of research in digital imaging 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.
