Dear all,

here a quick reminder that in four days, the 28th, is the deadline of
the abstract submission of the ACS RDF conference, as part of the
chemical information (CINF) section of the American Chemical Society.
With this email I like to provide some further information, including
the scope of the meeting, the 2nd Call for Papers (at the end), and
the structure of a typical abstract.

The ACS meetings typically have more than 10.000 participants, though
the number of people attending the CINF symposia during those meetings
is around 100. CINF meetings typically are about chemical information
in general, though drug discovery applications take a prominent place.
Other CINF symposia in Boston include:

* Streamlining systems biology and cheminformatics approaches with
high-throughput screening in lead discovery
* The Emerging Concepts of Activity Landscapes and Activity Cliffs and
Their Role in Drug Research
* Leveraging Modeling and Informatics for Rare and Neglected Diseases
* Where's the good stuff?  Consumer health information social
networking, resources and services
* Biologics and Biosimilars: One in the Same?
* Data-intensive drug design

Symposia of the ACS Spring meeting ongoing right now in San Franciso, include:

* Green Chemistry: Multidisciplinary use of chemical information resources
* Data visualization
* Libraries and large scale digitization initiatives (LSDIs)
* Metabolomics
* The Future of Scientific Publishing

As should be clear, the scope is very broad. I'd say the many HCLS
activities are relevant. The meeting is oriented at getting the
various groups involved in RDF applications in chemical and molecular
sciences together, perhaps as suggested best practices.

Abstracts can consist of a single A4 paper with title, authors and
affiliation, and perhaps a few references to relevant literature.

Further information about the full meeting can be found at:


Looking forward to your abstract submissions,

with kind regards,

Egon Willighagen

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.
