Today, IE member Leonardo Lezcano gave a presentation at the third edition of the OpenHealth-Spain Symposium that is taking place these days at the Medicine School of the University of Barcelona. The IE group has been the organizer of this event for the last three years, aiming to encourage discussion and coordination of researchers, practitioners and stakeholders in the area of healthcare systems interoperability while looking for synergies that enhance the Health informatics.
This time Leonardo presented a research work titled “Connectivity and semantic patterns in automatically generated SNOMED-CT subsets” that proposes a series of graph-based methods to analyze and evaluate the fitness and expressiveness of automatically generated SNOMED-CT subsets vis-à-vis the clinical context they were generated for.

Our colleague Dr. Emilia Curras has recently published a new book full of insights for people working in ontologies from an interdisciplinary perspective. The book name is “Ontologies, Taxonomies and Thesauri in Systems Science and Systematics“. The book is highly recommendable as it is providing a fresh look into the field that brings together all the knowledge on Information Science of Emilia and the latest trends in ontology as formal artifacts.
