Title: "LexGrid - Philosophy, Model and Interfaces"

Abstract: We will discuss the LexGrid terminology model and its
implementation.  We will begin by describing the requirements that led
to the creation of the model, the general principles and approach of the
model, and some of key aspects of the model representation.  We will
then describe one of the implementations of the model, named "LexBIG"
for LexGrid in the Cancer Bioinformatics Grid (caBIG).
