Hello all,
My name is Sean Martin. I am a senior technical staff member in a 
technology group in Cambridge, MA and I will represent IBM in this SIG.  I 
lead a team of developers that produced the reference implementation of 
the OMG's Life Science Identifier (LSID) standard and I was one of the 
authors of that specification.  The current focus of my team is the 
marriage of Semantic Web concepts, standards and technologies with more 
traditional middleware and GRID technologies. The team is creating the 
Semantic Layered Research Platform (SLRP) a prototype framework on which 
semantically aware collaborative applications will be written for 
researchers. This work includes researching RDF use in 
distributed/replicated storage, query & search, data federation, user 
interfaces, annotation and workflows. It is intended that the Center for a 
Virtual Tumor (CViT -  http://www.cvit.org/  ) be one of the early 
beneficiaries of this effort.

Of enormous interest to me is the creation of standard ontology's and 
metadata vocabularies for health care and life sciences as the lack of 
these is a major barrier to data integration and interoperability. 

Kindest regards, Sean
