Workshop Themes

* Mutation Nomenclature, Databases and Metadata: Design, Content, Accuracy.
* Mutation Data Integration, Phenotype Ontologies, Semantic Services and Reuse.
* Semantic Integration and Interpretation of data linked to mutations and diseases
* Impacts of Mutations: Prediction and Bootstrapping.
* Extraction and grounding of mutations and impact annotations from literature to
* System Evaluations and Benchmarking


We invite workshop papers (3000 words / 8 pages) and demonstrations. Early Abstracts should be no more than 500 words. Manuscripts should be focused around a specific challenge with a biomedical context where
they suggest a solution, demonstrate feasibility and possibly also a meaningful evaluation.

Pre-submission enquiries and variations to the deadlines above may be made in consultation with the Chris Baker

* Author instructions can be obtained by sending an email to an automated reply will be sent and complete submissions should be uploaded to

Journal Special Issue

A special issue in a biomedical scientific journal will be produced of the best contributions to the Workshop Proceedings. Papers have to address genuine themes relevant to the: Annotation, Interpretation and
Management of Mutations (see below)*
