Coming Monday June 11, 11 AM ET / 5PM CET Richard Boyce will present
recent work:

Title: LinkedSPLs - a dynamically updated and comprehensive linked
data node for US drug package inserts

Abstract: I would like to get feedback from the semantic web community
on the LinkedSPLs resource that I have created. LinkedSPLs publishes
FDA-approved Structured Product Labels (SPLs, a standardized
representation of drug package inserts) from DailyMed for use by NLP
and Semantic Web researchers. A goal I have for this resource is to be
a model of best practices for publishing linked open drug data. The
site's SPL data is updated weekly and all SPLs retain DailyMed
versioning data so that researchers can record the provenance of the
text and sections they work with. Also, to best support NLP research,
HTML table and image content is retained as pure HTML. Currently, data
from over 17,000 prescription drug SPLs is provided and it could
easily be extended to over-the-counter drugs. LinkedSPLs is provided
as a service as part of the Drug Interaction Knowledge Base (DIKB)
project.
