Interdisciplinary Ontology Conference (InterOntology08 Tokyo)

25.02.2008
This conference will serve to launch JCOR (the Japanese Centre for Ontological Research), which has recently been funded by the Japanese Government's Ministry of Education and Science (MEXT) under the framework of the Open Research Centre on Logic and Formal Ontology.

We are pleased to announce an international conference to be held in Tokyo on February 26-27, 2008. The conference will take place on the 6th floor (G-SEC Lab.) at the East Building of Mita Campus, Keio University. See the link below for the the direction from the airport to the conference site and our recommended hotel.

The conference will be co-organized and co-sponsored by

* JCOR: the Japanese Center for Ontological Research
* NCOR: the (US) National Center for Ontological Research
* ECOR: the European Center for Ontological Research
On the afternoon of Tuesday February 26 a special session will be held on Biomedical Ontology, jointly organized by JCOR and the (US) National Center for Biomedical Ontology.

This conference will serve to launch JCOR (the Japanese Centre for Ontological Research), which has recently been funded by the Japanese Government's Ministry of Education and Science (MEXT) under the framework of the Open Research Centre on Logic and Formal Ontology.

The conference will be held at Keio University, Tokyo.

The invited speakers include;

* Alan Ruttenberg (USA)
* Werner Ceusters (USA)
* Ken Fukuda (Japan)
* Nicola Guarino (Italy)
* Riichiro Mizoguchi (Japan)
* Jun Nakaya (Japan)
* Barry Smith (USA)
* Takahira Yamaguchi (Japan)
Other invited speakers will be announced soon.
A special session on the JCOR activities and a special session co-organaized with NCBO are also scheduled.

The purpose of the conference is to exchange ideas and state-of-the-art technologies among researchers from different regions of the world across various areas of ontology, including philosophy, informatics, AI, biomedical sciences.

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
