  • Let's discuss Open Data follow up when more people are present
  • Let's do a data update another time too
  • Conference Opportunities
  • Matthias is still interested in the TCM special issue
  • Jun is also interested in that
  • The deadline is end of January, so is approaching
  • Matthias also interested in ESWC
  • Deadline for ESWC is mid-December
  • Matthias and Jun aim for submission on chinese medicine related material at ESWC and in the special issue
  • Not a disaster if we miss the ESWC deadline
  • Susie is interested in submission to Bio-Ontologies SIG
  • Susie is biased as co-chair of the SIG
  • Thinks ISMB will be strong next year because it is in Boston
  • And also because of collaboration with HCLS, and ICBO
  • Bio-Ontologies SIG doesn't just focus on ontologies, so would be an appropriate venue
  • Acceptance rate is typically higher at SIG, than conference proper
  • Although the SIG itself is very competitive
  • Another advantage of SIG is 4 page paper submission
  • Propose go for the SIG and submit paper on applying TMO to research
  • CaBIG
  • Joshua interested in seeing how TMO could apply to caBIG use cases
  • Susie will share JBI paper with Joshua once completed
  • Ask Colin to review caBIG use cases to see if good fit for the ontology
  • CaBIG collaboration sounds good
  • Work could be done in TMO, or BioRDF, or in a new group
  • Looks like COI winding down as tasks are expected to do
  • Good time as caBIG investing in data sharing next year
  • Joshua would like to learn best practices from HCLS
