As you may be aware from Dan Brickley's heads-up post [1], there's
going to be a one-day meeting of the Semantic Web Interest Group
during the W3C Tech Plenary in Cannes, France, Thursday March 2nd
2006. The group is relatively informal, the meeting open to anyone
interested. Dan's the chair of SWIG but is unavailable, so I'm
standing in.

The (provisional) agenda [2] is virtually full and I'm planning to
send out the announcement later today.

However there is a little slot I'd very much like to be filled by
someone from this group. It can be difficult for anyone not involved
in life sciences/healthcare to get a handle on work in the field, yet
there is the obvious commonality with other SemWeb activity. There's
also the new HCLSIG initiative, and the SWIG is a rich seam for
potential collaborations.

So - would anyone be available to give a short talk? I've
provisionally allocated 20 minutes, although it may be possible to
tweak this either way.

Bearing in mind the SWIG is general (SW) interest, this should
probably provide some background and overview of the role of the
Semantic Web in this field, but I'm open to suggestions.

Time has also been allocated for lightning talks, they've proved
interesting and fun in previous years. So if anyone would like to
present something, anything, but *very quickly*, please let me know.
Right now the agenda says "max. 10 minutes", if we get a few more of
these that figure will have to go down, and the challenge go up...

Many thanks,
Danny.
