The 2015 SWAT4LS conference will provide the same open, vibrant and 
well-organised environment that has previously brought together 
researchers, developers, and users, from many fields to discuss goals, 
current limits and real experiences in the use of Semantic Web 
technologies in health care and the life sciences. The next SWAT4LS will 
be held in Cambridge, UK, 7-10th December 2015 and will be a full 
conference for the first time. SWAT4LS 2015 will be a tutorials day 
(7th), main conference (8th and 9th), and a Hackathon day (10th). 
Tutorials and the conference itself will be held in Clare College, 
Cambridge and the Hackathon will be at the European Bioinformatics 
Institute, Hinxton, Cambridge.  Conference details are to be found at 
http://www.swat4ls.org/workshops/cambridge2015/.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to Semantic Web 
technologies in the following areas:

- Tools for the management and analysis of semantic data in the life 
sciences, medicine and health care
- The description, integration,  analysis and use of data in pursuit of 
challenges in the life sciences, medicine and health
- Semantically enabled tools for the life sciences, medicine and health
- Knowledge representation for biomedical knowledge bases
- Harnessing biomedical ontologies and terminologies with medical 
standards for information exchange
- Electronic Health Records (EHRs), patient data  and clinical trial data
- Enabling translational medicine and personalized medicine
- Semantic scientific publishing in the life sciences, medicine and health
- Rule based systems exploiting semantics
- NLP and text mining using semantic technologies
- Emerging technologies in Semantic Web, e.g. JSON-LD, graph databases
- Empirical studies and evaluation of Semantic Web tools and 
applications in the life sciences
- Related standards such as CDISC, HL7 and LOINC used with semantic 
technology
- Ethical issues and data governance in health care and medical data on 
Semantic Web
- Future directions for Semantic Web technologies in the life sciences

The following types of submissions on a topic of interest to the SWAT4LS 
2015 audience are sought:

Long papers:
Research papers - Original research.
Software papers - New applications and tool descriptions.

Short papers:
Position papers, application notes, discovery notes, using Semantic Web 
applications and tools or a short version of a long paper topic.
Tutorials - Presenting teaching and learning material.
Software demos - Present software and tools in action.
Posters - An opportunity to present work in the area informally centred 
on a poster.
Industry - Abstract only describing industrial applications or research


Authors of accepted paper contributions to SWAT4LS 2015 will be invited 
to submit to a special issue of the BMC Journal of Biomedical Semantics.

All submissions will be handled via the EasyChair submission system
