calling for original research papers on, but not limited to the topics listed
below. Papers focusing on application aspects of languages in biology and
medicine are also invited.

- Natural language: text mining, retrieval and management;

- Ontology language: ontology construction, extension and management;

- Logic language: knowledge representation and induction;
