The Thirteenth International Conference on Data Integration in the Life 
Sciences 2018 (DILS 2018) will be held by TIB - Leibniz Information Centre for 
Science and Technology in Hannover (Germany) at Leibnizhaus on November 20-21, 

In addition, the TIB will hold a pre-conference on "Data Integration in the 
Life Sciences and Semantic Technologies" on November 19, 2018 and a 
post-conference on "Open Research Knowledge Graph" on November 22, 2018. DILS 
2018 is being hosted by TIB - Leibniz Information Centre for Science and 
Technology (TIB in Hannover), L3S Research Center Leibniz Universität Hannover

Workshop on "Open Research Knowledge Graph": November 22nd, 2018

**Keynote Speakers**
   Catia Pesquita. Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal
   Alfred Pühler. Universität Bielefeld, Germany

**Aims and Scope**
DILS provides a forum for the discussion of data management on the life 
sciences, including open problems and technical solutions for integration, 
query processing, and analytics. In particular, the thirteenth edition of DILS 
will focus on big, complex or heterogeneous life science data coming from 
diverse data sources, e.g., genomic data collections, biomedical literature, or 
clinical records, and in the challenges for transforming Big data into 
actionable insights.

**Topics of Interests and Research Areas**
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-) Challenges and opportunities with big, complex or heterogeneous life science 
-) Life science data integration and management
-) Authenticity, privacy, security, and trust in life science data
-) Knowledge graphs from life science data
-) Knowledge representation and discovery from Big life science data
-) Knowledge extraction for life science data
-) Ontology mappings and evolution
-) Quality assurance in integrated life science repositories
-) Architectures and data management techniques for the life sciences
-) Query processing and optimization
-) Question answering over life science data
-) Exposing life science data (APIs, Linked Open Data, SPARQL endpoints)
-) Metadata and Provenance Management of life science repositories
-) Analytics of large-scale life science data
-) Ethical, legal and social issues with biomedical data integration.
-) Data integration challenges and applications in various life-sciences
-) Applications using and managing Big life science data

Industry papers, demos and application/experiences are also welcome to DILS 
They will be selected according to industry-compliant assessment criteria.

**Paper Submission and Publication**
Authors are invited to submit original contributions of technical rigor and 
practical relevance to DILS 2018. Submissions should not have been published 
previously or be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for 
DILS 2018. Papers will undergo through a peer-review process and acceptance 
will be decided in terms of novelty, relevance to the field, rigorousness of 
the methodology, and quality of reported results.

Four types of papers will be selected:
  Full research papers (up to 15 pages)
  Short research papers and on-going Work (8 pages)
  Industry/application/experience papers (8 pages)
  Demos and Posters (4 pages)

Papers are to be prepared using LNCS templates
The proceedings of DILS will be published by Springer in the LNCS/LNAI/LNBI 
(Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics).
And submitted using the EasyChair site:

**Special Issue on "Data Quality of Life Sciences"**
Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of 
their papers to the Special issue on "Data Quality on Life Sciences"  of the 
ACM Journal of "Data and Information Quality (JDIQ)"
