SWAT4LS 2010

Preliminary announcement and call for tutorials, hackathons, meetup

The third edition of SWAT4LS Semantic Web Applications and Tools for 
Life Sciences 2010 will be held in Berlin, on next December 10th 2010.

Relevant dates:
15 / 09 / 2010: Submissions opening
18 / 10 / 2010: Paper submission deadline
01 / 11 / 2010: Poster and Demo submission deadline
15 / 11 / 2010: Communication of acceptance

Following the request from last year participants for tutorial 
sessions and a longer workshop, we are open to organize related 
events in the one or two days preceding the workshop. If you are 
interested in presenting a tutorial, organizing an hackathon, a 
meetup please send a short proposal (half a page) to info@swat4ls.org 
by June 30th latest.

SWAT4LS is a workshop that provides a venue to present and discuss 
benefits and limits of the adoption of Semantic Web technologies and 
tools in biomedical informatics and computational biology.
The first edition, held in Edinburgh in November 2008, received 40 
submissions, of which 13 were accepted as oral communications, and 
part of them included in a special issue of BMC Bioinformatics 
dedicated to the workshop.
The second edition, held in Amsterdam in November 2009, received a 
total of 27 submission, and presented a more varied program with 6 
full papers, 3 keynotes, 5 demos, 3 short talks, posters session and 
panel discussion. This edition has been evaluated unanimously well by 
participants and a special issue on the Journal of Biomedical 
Semantics dedicated to this workshop is in preparation.
We hope that the next edition of SWAT4LS will provide the same open 
and stimulating environment that brought together researchers, both 
developers and users, from the various fields of Biology, 
Bioinformatics and Computer Science, to discuss goals, current limits 
and real experiences in the use of Semantic Web technologies in Life Sciences.
