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: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
