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.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
