Anyone from the Interest Group planning to attend this? Would be good
to build up connections betweeen semweb-for-lifesci and the Open Access
scene, particularly around document metadata and topic classification,
I'd imagine.

Can't make it myself, but would be very interested to see a report 
posted here from any attendees...

cheers,

Dan
