Hi, Eric

To follow your lead :)

My name is Helen Chen, and I am Agfa's representative to the HCLSIG group. 
 I am currently working on bringing semantic web technology to clinical 
decision support in Healthcare information systems.  In particular, I am 
working on Adaptable Clinical Pathway modeling and knowledge presentation. 
 As the semantic web enables us to meaningfully connect, I believe the 
power of this group lays on the connected knowledge and action.  I am very 
much looking forward to working closely and productively with the group. 

Here are a few more lines from my short bio on line 

Helen is a Principle Investigator at Adaptable Clinical Workflow (ACW) 
working group at Agfa Healthcare. At ACW, we are working on a decision 
support system that generates patient-specific clinical pathway using 
semantic web technology. 
Helen's research interests include: 
Ontology Modeling and Integration in Healthcare Domain 
Decision Support in Healthcare Information Systems 
Semantic web technology 
Computable, Interchangeable and Adaptable Clinical Pathways, its 
representation and execution 
Helen's current responsibilities also include participation at Semantic 
Web for Healthcare and Life Sciences Interest Group and collaborations 
with external academic and research partners. 
Helen holds a Ph.D. in Biomechanics from University of Waterloo, Ontario, 
Canada, under supervising of Prof. Wayne Brodland. She received her MSc. 
and BSc. degrees from the Department of Engineering Mechanics at Tsinghua 
University, Beijing, China .

introductions: eric miller, w3c

The W3C Semantic Web Health Care and Life Sciences Interest Group has 
the potential for bringing individuals from various backgrounds to 
explore the application of Semantic Web technologies to improve 
collaboration, research and development, and innovation adoption in 
the Health Care and Life Science communities.

Given this, I thought it might be helpful to do a quick round of 
introductions to help provide some shared context. So here goes...

My name is Eric Miller, and I'm the Semantic Web Activity Lead for 
the W3C. Some various details (albeit a bit dry :) can be found on my 
home page:

Eric's responsibilities include the architectural and technical 
leadership in the design and evolution of Semantic Web 
infrastructure. Responsibilities additionally include working with 
W3C members so that both working groups in the Semantic Web activity, 
as well as other W3C activities, produce Web standards and 
conventions that support Semantic Web requirements. Additionally, to 
build support among user and vendor communities for the Semantic Web 
by illustrating the benefits to those communities and means of 
participating in the creation of a Web of Data. And finally to 
establish liaisons with other technical standards bodies involved in 
Web-related technology to ensure compliance with existing Semantic 
Web standards and collect requirements for future W3C work in this area.

Before joining the W3C, Eric was a Senior Research Scientist at OCLC 
Online Computer Library Center, Inc. and the co-founder and Associate 
Director of the The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, an open forum 
engaged in the development of interoperable online metadata standards 
that support a broad range of purposes and business models.

Eric is a Research Scientist at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial 
Intelligence Laboratory.
