ISMB05 Semantic Web for Life Science BOFThe topic of "context" came up during the November meeting and was put on the agenda as an important are for future study.  Again during the Proteomic NIH roadmap meeting in January in D.C. at least one speaker stressed importance of context. 
Information without context doesn't provide a lot of value.  

I leave it up to the group to decide.  
I find context is critical in sharing and searching from my work on the topic for over a decade.

  Subject: ISMB05 Semantic Web for Life Science BOF

  There will be a Semantic Web for Life Sciences BOF on Tuesday, June 28 at ISMB05. We will discuss our current activities (BioDash, BioPAX, ScienceCommons) and available technologies (Oracle RDF Store, Haystack, Cerebra, SIMILE, Sesame, Siderean, Intellidimension, DataGrid, Teranode, etc), as well as what futrure projects we should begin to focus on.

  Some areas of discussion include which databases should be RDF-OWL enabled using public tools, and what considerations should be made for community knowledge banks (semantic accounts) that would support scientific collaborations through a semantic web model.

  Please forward any additional topics you would like discussed.
