Hello All!
The National Center for Biomedical Ontology is pleased to announce its next
online Seminar Series, TODAY, March 18th at 10am PST. Please note there will
not be a VOIP option, and attendees must call into the teleconference.
This series aims to showcase new projects, technologies and ideas in
biomedical ontology by featuring the work of a different collaborator each
session. It is a webinar held online, and as such is open to anyone
interested, regardless of location or affiliation.

Below is Information on how to join next weekıs online meeting and
accompanying teleconference. The seminar will be presented by Kei Cheung,
Associate Professor at the Yale Center for Medical informatics. The title of

The sponsoring organization, the National Center for Biomedical Ontology
(http://www.bioontology.org), is a consortium of leading biologists,
clinicians, informaticians, and ontologists who develop innovative
technology and methods allowing scientists to create, disseminate, and
manage biomedical information and knowledge in machine-processable form.

We hope to see you there.

Title: WikiNeuron: Semantic Wiki of Collective Minds in Neuroscience
Abstract: Recently, there have been an increasing number of bio-Wiki
projects including Gene Wiki, WikiProteins, WikiPathways, Proteopedia,
SNPedia, etc. To extend the Wiki frontier to the neurosciences, we have
created a collaborative and semantically-enabled Wiki prototype called "Wiki

This prototype allows us to explore the potential benefits of semantic wiki
technologies in collective and collaborative neuroscience knowledge
acquisition, annotation, and integration. We plan to transform the prototype
into a Wiki-based collaboratory by collaborating with communities such as
the Semantic Web, ontology, and SIOC communities. In addition, we will
utilize the resources generated by the Neuroscience Information Framework
<http://nif.nih.gov/>  that aims at enhancing neuroscience research by
enabling discovery and access to research data and tools.
