Hi Matthias,

That'd be great! SfN abstracts are brief (max. 2300 characters including
punctuation!) so focusing on the value to neuroscientists sounds like the
right course.

Abstract may be presented or posters. Slide presentations are kept very
brief and there is so much going on most people won't see a particular slide
presentation. Even if we indicate our preference for a slide presentation
it's likely we wouldn't get it.

If we do a poster it will be up half a day. We can bring our demo machine
and set it up next to the poster. (I've seen BIRN and others do this.
Wireless is generally available.) I think this is the preferred mode for us.

There is also a $75 submission fee.

I'm willing to take responsibility for paying the submission fee, getting
the poster up, staying there while it's up, and working the demo as long as
everyone is interested in doing this and a demo machine will be available.

We won't get a paper out of it but I think it's worthwhile to expose the
end-user community (neuroscientists) to the value the Semantic Web
technologies may provide to them.

Best wishes,
Don

Hi Don,

I would help with the abstract for SfN where I can, of course. I guess it
should be even more focussed on the requirements and use cases in
Neuroscience than the BMC Bioinformatics paper. Mainly a description of the
collaborating neuroscience groups, their motivation and the types of
information that we are integrating, and less about the technical details.

I guess it is much too late to start writing a group paper for the ISMB
workshop now. A poster abstract would be possible, but I think we don't want
to present a poster.

cheers,
Matthias
