  The W3C Semantic Web for Health Care and Life Sciences Interest Group has
made a great many contributions over its lifetime, which have had major
impact on many research groups as well as government and industry partners.
I'm proud to have had this opportunity to chair the group, but the field
has matured and it is time for it to evolve to a W3C Community Group, which
is broadly open for participation. Looking forward to seeing grass-roots
initiatives, such as Richard Boyce's DDI model, and many others being
discussed within the context of the community group.
  Warmest regards,
