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!
In case anyone wants to get a peek at some of the inconsistencies between MP and HP definitions, check https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_56zpH7dYI-_GxRsii1DTnR8-7rCRPnkHuUERzvc0l0/edit?usp=sharing
Some of those will be discussed as part of the workshop.
We have already plenty of suggestions for the discussion session in the afternoon (Session 4). However, I wanted to give you (or at least the ones in this room) a chance to add 1 (or maximum 2) issues they want to raise to the group. However, it is possible we do not get to discuss some of them in the end; It think its better to have a few solid discussions rather than two many issues that do not get the space they deserve. Anyhow: Fill in your name a conversation topic if you have something you want discussed, and we will try to fiddle it in.
