Hi All

After the Workshop held in Boston in October, our group at the University of
Texas at Austin is excited about participating in this XG. We are currently
working on our SQL to OWL translation. We also have a system that exports
LSID (Life Sciences Identifiers) to RDF which is part of out AToL
(Assembling the Tree of Life)

Austin is a mid-point in the US, so our University would be happy to host a
f2f meeting. You have the "nerdy " flights directly from San Jose and Boston
to Austin, or come in directly from Europe with one stop in Newark or
Houston.
