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: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
