Do ontologies work? Barriers and Possibilities to Implement Ontologies in (Health) Information Systems (György Surján)

Currently, there are a large number of biomedical ontology development projects a number of more or less mature medical ontologies available on the Internet. However, it is extremely difficult to find practical examples of ontologies that are integrated in health information systems in daily use. This workshop aims to investigate the barriers and possibilities of practical implementation of ontologies, regarding the theoretical and pragmatic difficulties and limitations. The problem will be investigated with special attention given to the e-Health interoperability plan of the European Union, focusing on Hungary and other Central and Eastern European countries. Expert representatives from various local groups will be asked to report on their work and experience with practical implementations. Contributions relating to similar work in other regions of the world are most welcome.

Please send ONE-page abstracts to workshop organizer György Surján, (surjan AT eski DOT hu) preferably no later than May 15, 2007.
