The Thirteenth International Conference on Data Integration in the Life Sciences 2018 (DILS2018) was held by TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology in Hannover (Germany) at Leibnizhaus on November 20-21, 2018. The conference’s aim was to foster discussion, exchange, and innovation in research and development in the areas of data integration and data management for the life sciences. Researchers, professionals and students from computer science, engineering, medicine and biology were invited to share their knowledge and experience.
Thus the thirteenth edition of DILS provided a forum for the discussion of Big data on the life sciences, including challenges and technical solutions for transforming Big data into knowledge from which actionable insights can be extracted. In addition, TIB held 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.
The conference was hosted by TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology (TIB in Hannover), L3S Research Center Leibniz Universität Hannover (L3S in Hannover), ZB MED – Information Centre for Life Sciences (ZB MED in Cologne/Bonn) and MHH – Hannover Medical School (MHH in Hannover).
