It's been a number of years since I went to an ontology UK event, but my impression was that it was more on the ontology than the community.

I think it would be a good opportunity for us to get feedback on the BioChemEntity.

Perhaps we should put in two abstracts. One on the community and one on the modeling of life science entities.

PLEASE NOTE: I no longer work weekends. You will not get a response.

email etiquette:
I get a lot of email and when I travel it gets even more backed up.

- Don't get too upset if my replies are short (see http://www.phdcomics.com/comics/archive.php?comicid=1047)
- If you don't get a reply within 48 hours there is a good chance the email has scrolled into the distance. If its urgent try again or email melanie.price@manchester.ac.uk.
If you haven't heard within a week you really should try again.
