  • Life Science Data Modelling
    • "Big Data" infrastructure
    • Data integration systems
    • Data models and standards
    • Ontology and its evolution
    • Architectures and data management techniques
  • Analysing, Indexing, and Querying Life Sciences Datasets
    • Linked Open Data
    • Machine Learning
    • Query formulation, processing and optimization
  • Annotating, Matching, and Sharing Life Sciences Datasets
    • Data annotation and maintenance
    • Ontology and Schema Matching
  • Privacy and Provenance of Life Sciences Datasets
    • Ethical, legal and social issues
