The Thirteenth International Conference on Data Integration in the Life Sciences 2018 (DILS2018) will be held by TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology in Hannover (Germany) at Leibnizhaus on November 20-21, 2018.
The conference aim is to foster discussion, exchange, and innovation in research and development in the areas of data integration and data management for the life sciences. Researchers, professionals and students from computer science, engineering, medicine, and biology are invited to share their knowledge and experience.
The thirteenth edition of DILS provides a forum for the discussion of Big data on the life sciences, including challenges and technical solutions for transforming Big data into knowledge from which actionable insights can be extracted.
In addition, the TIB will hold a pre-conference on "Data Integration in the Life Sciences and Semantic Technologies" on November 19, 2018, and a post-conference on "Open Research Knowledge Graph" on November 22, 2018.
The conference is being hosted by TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology (TIB in Hannover), L3S Research Center Leibniz Universität Hannover (L3S in Hannover), ZB MED – Information Centre for Life Sciences (ZB MED in Cologne/Bonn) and MHH - Hannover Medical School (MHH in Hannover).
Call for papers
Topics of Interests DILS provides a forum for the discussion of data management on the life sciences, including open problems and technical solutions for integration, query processing, and analytics. In particular, the thirteenth edition of DILS will focus on Big life science data coming from diverse data sources, e.g., genomic data collections, biomedical literature, or clinical records, and in the challenges for transforming Big data into actionable insights.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Challenges and opportunities with Big life science data
Big life science data integration and management
Authenticity, privacy, security, and trust in Big life science data
Knowledge graphs from Big life science data
Knowledge representation and discovery from Big life science data
Knowledge extraction for Big life science data
Ontology mappings and evolution
Quality assurance in integrated life science repositories
Architectures and data management techniques for the life sciences
Query processing and optimization
Question answering over Big life science data
Exposing Big life science data (APIs, Linked Open Data, SPARQL endpoints)
Metadata and Provenance Management of life science repositories
Analytics of large-scale life science data
Ethical, legal and social issues with biomedical data integration.
Data integration challenges and applications in various life-sciences
Applications using Big life science data
