Dear colleagues,

We would like to call your attention to our pre-conference event on
***Semantic Publishing*** at the FORCE2016 Research Communication and
e­Scholarship Conference: https://force2016.sched.org/event/5wKB/

Semantic publishing has been defined as "anything that enhances the
meaning of a published journal article, facilitates its automated
discovery, enables its linking to semantically related articles,
provides access to data within the article in actionable form, or
facilitates integration of data between papers" [Shotton 2009].
Stronger notions of semantic publishing envisage that the main
scientific claims are formally represented and published as entities
in their own right. In this workshop we will discuss how to advance
practice with respect to these ideals in the age of Big Data and Data
Science.

Anticipated outcomes of the workshop include:
- Learn about the state of the art in semantic publishing
- Critically evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of semantic
annotation versus genuine semantic publishing
- Assess the role of scientific data with respect to the research article
- Discuss the sociotechnological challenges faced by semantic publishing
- Bring academic and commercial interests together
- Build social networks and identify opportunities for collaboration.
- Participate in the development of a white paper on semantic publishing

Our workshop will be open to all conference attendees. Get in touch
with us if you would like to present relevant research, demo your
system, propose discussion topics, share experiences, or just let us
know that you plan to attend the event.

The event will held be on Sunday, April 17 at 9:00am, the day before
the main conference starts in Portland Oregon. More information about
the main conference can be found here:

We hope to see you in Portland.

Best regards,
Michel and Tobias
