Hi Matthias et al,

It looks like there is some interest in writing a group paper describing 
the demo work that is currently going on. Some people have already 
proposed a couple of options such as the following:

1. ISMB BioOnt Workshop whose proceedings will be published in a 
supplement issue of BMC Bioinformatics (is there a publication cost?)
2. Society for Neuroscience meeting (will it be published in a journal?)

There are also other otpions. For example, there is a special issue 
"Semantic BioMed Mashup" of the Journal of Biomedical Informatics 
(http://www.elsevier.com/framework_products/promis_misc/jbi_semantic.pdf). 
I have also seen community papers published in high-profile journals 
such as Nature and Science. It depends on the quality of the work, but 
it also depends on people's interest, commitment, availability ...

The first HCLS paper (which will be published in BMC Bioinformatics 
soon) talks about SW visions and use cases in the area of translational 
medicine. A new paper paper (if we decide to write one) might focus on 
the SW implementation of these visions and use cases. We have more 
results now ...

Best,

-Kei
