Message-ID: <20110616005824.GE3768@w3.org>
Hi again again. Since last we met, I pushed some documents around and
piled some words into others. The High Level Use Cases (AKA elevator
pitches) doc is now on the wiki:
  http://www.w3.org/wiki/HCLSIG/HighLevelUseCases
The on-deck charter remains where it was:
  http://www.w3.org/2011/05/HCLSIGCharter-proposal
Scott wrote up a brag sheet to show what we accomplished in this charter:
  http://www.w3.org/wiki/HCLSIG/Products
and I wrote a narrative version catering to pharmas:
  http://www.w3.org/wiki/HCLSIG/Products/TranslationalMedicine
Join me tomorrow at the usual time (11.00 EDT, 15.00Z)?

> >   regulatory agencies. Due to the scope and diversity of expertise
> >   required to meet translational needs, the HCLS IG work is broken
> >   down into discrete task forces focused on particular data
> >   acquisition, modeling and integration requirements:
> > 
> >   Terminology - identifying and integrating identifiers for biological
> >   processes, gross anatomy and medical procedures to promote
> >   unification of domain data.
> > 
> >   LODD - curation of compounds, clinical trials and outcomes.
> > 
> >   BioRDF - modeling of biological processes and actors.
> > 
> >   Scientific Discourse - representation and tracking of the changing
> >   landscape of scientific knowledge and the driving theora and
> >   experiments.
> > 
> >   Translational Medicine - the oversight and high-level ontology that
> >   connects these disciplines together in order to meet immediate and
