The presentations will be available for companies in the EBI Industry
program i.e.


Otherwise I can send mine, and I assume Scott etc... can send theirs

It was full room with +/- 45 registered people.

The Pistoia Alliance is a EBI industry collaboration but not closely
related to this workshop.
Other than Dietrich Rebholz-Schuhmann of the EBI Textmining giving a
talk and one of the
Pistoia work-products using RDF+sparql.
