2nd Call for Papers: Semantic Chemistry with the Resource Description
Framework (CINF
Symposium, ACS Autumn 2010) 240th ACS National Meeting & Exposition

We now invite papers for our symposium on the use of the Resource
Description Framework (RDF) technologies in semantic knowledge
representation and data exchange in chemistry at the 240th National Meeting
& Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in Boston this fall.

Semantic Chemistry has been around for a while, but is seeing a revival with
the adoption of the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and matching
technologies in chemistry. RDF triples provide a simple structure that allow
data and knowledge alike to be presented in a single framework. Derived
technologies include the capturing of ontologies with the Web Ontology
Language (OWL) and performing queries with SPARQL. A wide variety of free
and open source product make it easy to set up servers with large amounts of
RDF data, while integration with HTML is available too with RDFa.

The RDF symposium at the 240th ACS national meeting in Boston invites
submissions of talks about the use of RDF in chemistry and cheminformatics.
Topics could include the use of OWL ontologies, OWL axioms, reasoning and
interference, RDF in user interfaces, such as RDFa in web front ends,
visualization, querying systems, and applications thereof, such as linking
data sets, compound classification, cloud computing, web services, data
aggregation, semantic publishing, and literature mining.

Abstracts may be submitted via http://abstracts.acs.org/ now. You’ll
find the RDF
session as part of the CINF division symposiums. The submission deadline is
March 28, 2010. In case of questions, please email Egon Willighagen at
egon.willighagen[A]farmbio.uu.se or Martin Braendle at braendle[A]chem.ethz.ch.
