@nicolevasilevsky I agree we should schedule a meeting soon, also to discuss workshop programme proposals.
Did anyone ever write a piece on the implications of having multiple definitions on the same class? Blog, paper or otherwise? I explained the issue this morning to some ontology developers, and I was wondering whether there is anything I can send him to read up on it. @cmungall

Phenotype Ontologies Traversing All The Organisms (POTATO) at ICBO2018
Announcing the POTATO workshop at ICBO: Phenotype Ontologies Traversing All The Organisms (POTATO),
scheduled for August 6 and 7 at OSU.
This workshop will take place over two days – day 1 (Aug 6) is invite only, but day 2 (Aug 7) is open to all. This workshop aims to address challenges with developing interoperable phenotype ontologies. More specifically, we will address the use of standardized design patterns for logical definitions both within and between phenotype ontologies.
The public workshop will take place on Tuesday, August 07 from 4-6pm. This will start with an introduction to pattern-based ontology development emphasizing its benefits and importance, illustrated using the dead simple OWL design pattern (DOSDP framework) and examples from phenotype ontologies. Following this we will present and discuss strategies to maintain patterns in a multi-species context. We will run a hands-on practical session on setting up ontology repositories for pattern-based development.

Please pass this announcement along, and we hope to see you there!
