Reminder: W3C HCLS Scientific Discourse concall March 6, 11am - 12 noon EST

Dear Sci Discourse participants,

A reminder to dial in for this week's concall.  Sudeshna Das is our  
featured discussant and will put forward an integration approach for  
discourse and experiments using the SAAGE project as a testbed, and  
will be recruiting colleagues to participate in building a first-pass  
integrated ontology.  This is an opportunity for people interested in  
the practice of constructing ontologies "very close to the ground",  
that is, rooted in direct requirements and activities of practicing  
biologists and using a minimalist "agile" approach.

Next call (March 20) John Madden from Duke University, who chairs the  
HCLS Terminology task, will talk to us about SKOS and terminology.   
There has been a lot of discussion about terminologies versus  
ontologies, what they are each good for, and how to use them  
judiciously.  This will be a great opportunity to weigh in this  
topic.  SWAN/SIOC supports integration of SKOS terminologies and we  
will discuss use cases for various kinds of terminologies, setting up  
terminology libraries etc.
