Dear Esteemed HCLSIG Colleagues,

Many of you are not registered to attend C-SHALS.  There's still time,  
but time is running out.

If you're in HCLS or interested in any aspect of health, clinical,   
life science, or biomedical semantics you need to be at this meeting.  
This conference is not like any other.

Also, if you would, kindly spread the word by printing and posting the  
attached flyer and forwarding it to colleagues.

Kind regards,



Conference on Semantics in Healthcare and Life Sciences (CSHALS)

About CSHALS 2010

The ISCB Conference on Semantics in Healthcare and Life Sciences  
returns for its third year as the premier annual event focused on the  
use of semantic technologies in the pharmaceutical industry, including  
hospitals/healthcare institutions and academic research labs.

CSHALS is a single forum for the presentation and discussion of  
practical semantics-based approaches, including challenges faced and  
applications that are working. The conference features keynote  
lectures, invited talks and discussion sessions guided by leaders and  
visionaries of intelligent systems for drug discovery and development.  
Rather than a Semantic Web conference, CSHALS is a conference focused  
on specific applications of semantic technologies to show where  
advances have been made, determine what the current needs are, and  
anticipate where the field is headed in order to prepare and advance  
with the field. The conference is organized along specific topics and  
moderated to stimulate interactive discussions around sets of key  
questions determined in advance with input from registered attendees.

CSHALS is intended for anyone already participating in this  
groundbreaking field, and a pre-conference tutorial is offered to help  
interested researchers come up to speed on the practical approaches of  
applying intelligent information technologies in pharmaceutical R&D.

If this describes you, save the date now and follow the website for  
updates on CSHALS 2010.

Conference participants will take part in discussion sessions that   
explore answers to technology questions such as the following:
Where are semantic applications having the biggest impact?
What support exists for using semantics for automated reasoning and  
agent technologies?
How well do semantic tools enable the visualization and utilization of  
information and knowledge?
What are the measurable benefits of Semantic Web standards, such as  
Themes of past CSHALS conferences:
Clinical Information Management
Discovery Information Integration
Integrated Healthcare and Semantics in Electronic Health Records
Translational Medicine / Safety
Search and Document Management/Business Intelligence/Text Mining
Text Mining/ Information Extraction
C-SHALS will be preceded by a half day Tutorial focused on the current  
Semantic Web standard RDF tools to show participants how this  
technology meets drug development needs.
