author(s) of the best paper.

limited to:

- Ontology models and theories         
- Ontologies and the Semantic Web     
- Interoperability in ontologies      
- Ontologies and Multi-agent systems

        Subject: Symposium on Scientific Visualization, Art & Design

Dear Colleagues,

Please find details below of an upcoming symposium that you may be 
interested in: You Need To See This -- Pushing the boundaries of 
scientific visualization. Would you be so kind as to circulate this 
information to all individuals who may be interested? Thanks in advance 
for your assistance with this.

You Need To See This -- Pushing the boundaries of scientific 
Tuesday 25 September - Wednesday 26 September 2012
The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, H.C. Andersens 
Boulevard 35, DK-1553 Copenhagen V, Denmark.

Scientific visualizations are essential for the processes involved in 
generating and presenting scientific data. This symposium explores how 
connections between art, design and science inspire and advance 
research, innovation and working processes in scientific data 
visualization. Speakers will share ideas for and processes of their work 
in visualization across disciplines. Talks and discussions will address 
how visual ideas and intentions are transformed by the use of different 
tools and technologies, how to meet the challenges of cross-discipline 
collaborations, how to gain and apply inspiration through 
multidisciplinary processes, and how these processes can enrich both the 
practice of science and art.

Speakers: David Goodsell (The Scripps Research Institute), Colin Ware 
(University of New Hampshire), Bang Wong (The Broad Institute of MIT & 
Harvard), Alessia Giardino (Thread Count Lab London), Nik Spencer 
(Nature), Amanda Cox (The New York Times), Gaël McGill (Harvard 
Medical School), Poul Nissen (Aarhus University), Søren Brunak 
(Technical University of Denmark), Niels Christian Nielsen (Aarhus 
University), and Mette Høst (Niels Bohr Institute).

updates registration opens again Monday 10 September 2012. Deadline for 
registration is Friday 14 September 2012. Please follow this link for
