> A Research Information Network Workshop

> ¦      Handling the scientific data deluge . . .
>
> ¦      Making research data more freely available . . .
>
> ¦      Interoperating between heterogeneous Web databases . . .
>
> ¦      Exploiting the potential of the Semantic Web and Web 2.0 . . .
>
> This workshop will seek to address these issues, with the help of a 
> panel of distinguished speakers from both sides of the Atlantic.  The 
> event will be provide an opportunity to examine and discuss the the 
> changing nature of scholarly publication and the use of lightweight 
> semantic web and ‘Web 2.0’ approaches to improve access to and 
> interoperability between scientific research data. 
>
> In particular, the workshop will develop the concept of data webs, a 
> new concept in digital information storage and integration that 
> involves lightweight harvesting of metadata describing distributed 
> data into a central searchable registry.  It will show that data webs 
> are often a more appropriate means for the publication and integration 
> of research data than the use of centralized databases. 
>
> Although the programme has a focus in the biomedical sciences, the 
> event should appeal across all disciplines to researchers with an 
> interest in improving the way they publish and share their data. The 
> workshop will aim to show that the methods discussed have the 
> potential to provide significant benefits, including scalability, and 
> will explore the key issues for establishing them across the research 
> spectrum. 
>
> Everyone is welcome, but places are limited and will be allocated on a 
> first come, first serve basis.
