Ther's a conf call DILS (program link below:)
Of our lot, Michel and Holger might be going (Holger is trying, I
haven't asked Michel). What messages do we have to deliver to
A. the individual sessions
B. the folks who will likely attend

Here are my notes from scanning the agenda (and regretting that I
won't be there):

          BioWarehouse: Relational Integration of Eleven
          Bioinformatics Databases and Formats
          Session 1: Annotation in scientific data
            • Integrating Protein-Protein Interactions and
              text Mining for protein Function Prediction,
              Samira Jaeger, Sylvain Gaudan, Ulf Leser,
    03:15     Dietrich Rebholz-Schuhmann
    04:15   • Integrating Biological Data – The Distributed
    pm        Annotation System, Andrew M Jenkinson, Mario
              Albrecht, Ewan Birney, Hagen Blankenburg,
              Thomas Down, Robert D Finn, Henning Hermjakob,
              Tim JP Hubbard, Rafael C Jimenez, Philip Jones,
              Andreas Kahari, Eugene Kulesha, José R Macias,
    04:15     Gabrielle A Reeves and Andreas Prlic

This sounds to me like labeling a text string in HTML, Word, ... with
something that allows them to unify based on that term. Relevent to
Sudeshna's Scientific Collaboration Framework.

    -     Coffee
    04:45  Flash Session
            • Analysing Experimental Data in the context of
              Integrated Biological Networks, Jan Taubert,
              Jochen Weile, Matthew Hindle, Artem Lysenko,
              Keywan Hassani-Pak,Catherine Canevet, and Chris
            • Terminizier: An interactive web-based tool for
              automated detection of ontological terms in
              unstructured, free-text annotation, David
              Hancock, Norman Morrison, Giles Velarde,
              Douglas Kell, and Dawn Field

Perhaps like Therese Vachon (Novartis)'s UltraLink?
            • Semantic Mashups with BioXMash, Patrick
              Ziegler, and Ela Hunt

            • Mixed queries for a functional genomics
    04:45     warehouse, Frederic Lemoine, Bernard Labedan,
    -         and Christine Froidevaux

How are the mixing their queries? Some meta-query lang that we can
play with/map to?

    05:15   • Mapping the NRC dataflow model to the Open
              Provenance Model, Natalia Kwasnikowska, and Jan
              Van den Bussche
            • UniMed: Mapping of UniProt entries to disease
              terminologies, Anais Mottaz, Yum L Yip, Julien
              Gobeill, Patrick Ruch, and Anne-Lise Veuthey

Would be fun to get ahold of this data and RDF-ize it.

            • Using a metadata approach to manage
              similarities and differences between clinical
              datasets, Irene Papatheodorou, Charles Crichton
              Lorna Morris, Peter Maccallum, James Brenton
              and Carlos Caldas

Sounds like they're factoring out info we want for COI.

            • Semi-automatic composition of bioinformatics
              Web services based on task and domain
              ontologies, Nicolas Lebreton, Olivier Dameron,
    06:00     Christophe Blanchet, and Julie Chabalier

How does this compare to Northampton or CWI's semweb service
integration? Would like to show them SPDL.

     Thursday, June 26 (Evry)

              Ontologies and Mappings
              Michael Hartung, Toralf Kirsten, and Erhard

Could support us if their onto-mapping needs line up with SemWeb
strengths (distributed ont development, monotonic interpretation)

    10:30   • Ontology Design Principles and Normalization
    am -      Techniques in the Web
    12:00     Xiaoshu Wang, Jonas S. Almeida, and Arlindo L.

            • Exploiting Ontology Structure and Patterns of
              Annotation to Mine Significant Associations
              between Pairs of Controlled Vocabulary Terms
              Woei-Jyh Lee, Louiqa Raschid, Hassan Sayyadi,
    12:00     and Padmini Srinivasan

May provide techniques relevent to COI mapping use case (CTO queries
over CPO data)

    -     Lunch

              Reginald Jean-Mary, Thomas J. Taylor, Michael
              Ryan, and Mansur R. Kabuka

    04:30   • SisGen: A CORBA--based data management program
              for DNA sequencing projects
              Georgios J. Pappas Jr., Robson P. Miranda,
              Natalia F. Martins, Roberto C. Togawa and
              Marcos M.C. Costa

what works for CORBA works for web services.

            • Bgee: Integrating and Comparing Heterogeneous
              Transcriptome Data Among Species
              Frederic Bastian, Gilles Parmentier, Julien

Need to talk to them about SPASQL and semantic query federation.
What's happening in ENFIN now?

already RDF-y -- and I think Mark has a SPARQL endpoint.

            • OMIE: Ontology Mapping within an Interactive

Michel, can you give us a hint about this presentation?
