FYI....  (more below the Webinar announcement)

CSHALS is Conference on Semantics in Health Care and Life Science. CSHALS is the premier annual event focused on the use of semantic technologies in the practice (pharmaceutical industry, including hospitals/healthcare institutions and academic research labs). This year, with an expanded scope that includes the emerging field of data science. 

CSHALS is an official conference of the International Society of Computational Biology, http://www.iscb.org/ (see http://www.iscb.org/iscb-aboutus).  Today's speaker, Larry Hunter is a founder of ISCB, which now serves over 2500 members and about 70 countries.

Conference on Semantics in Healthcare and Life Sciences (CSHALS)

About CSHALS 2012

CSHALS is the premier annual event focused on the use of semantic technologies in the pharmaceutical industry, including hospitals/healthcare institutions and academic research labs. With an expanded scope that includes the emerging field of data science, CSHALS is the place to be in 2012!

Topics covered by CSHALS 2012 span the continuum between standards development and big data workflows - the scope between Life Science data representation and its analysis. Conference organizers are accepting abstract submissions for poster and oral presentations in the following topic areas:

Linked Data - generation, representation, and management of data using the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Linked Data principles.
Data Modeling - Ontologies, Taxonomies - practical application of knowledge engineering principles and techniques to data modeling.
Text Analysis, NLP, Question Answering - use of semantic technologies for processing natural language.
Cloud, Parallel, and Distributed Computing - use of semantic technologies for representation and management of distributed computational resources and workflows.
Healthcare eScience -  Translational Medicine, Pharmacogenomics - patient-centric use of semantic web technologies to handle the integration of clinical and biomolecular data.
Business Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Analytics - semantic applications to inference and decision-making.
Human Computer Interfaces - development of interfaces or design criteria that involve humans in the process of knowledge creation.
Clinical Applications - Semantic web exploits as part of medical care delivery.
Molecular Applications - Semantic web exploits in the biomolecular and biochemical domains.
Applications to Emerging Health Disciplines - Use of the semantic web integrative and distributed nature to support emergence of novel applications in health care.

As in past years, the 2011 conference was highly rated in the following areas:

Tutorial topics
Keynote speakers
Conference agenda
Conference logistics/organization
Past attendee comments included…

"I thought the speakers were excellent."

"Well conducted in terms of bioinformatics technology."

"Terrific conference and I learned a lot – felt like I was able to contribute something as well."

"Very good mix, a bit futuristic … but highly necessary to keep exposing to less technology savvy folks."

"Cambridge (MA, USA) is a good location, with good transportation links to regional, national, and international attendees."

93% of the 2011 attendees will recommend this conference to others. CSHALS is your place to be in 2012!
