W3C is holding a workshop on W3C Workshop on Semantic Web for Life
Sciences. Attendees will discuss how Semantic Web technologies such as
RDF/OWL and domain-specific standards such as the Life Sciences Identifier
(LSID) help to manage modern life sciences research, enable disease
understanding, and accelerate the development of therapies.
When: 27-28 October 2004
Where: Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
The event is being organized by the W3C
Technology & Society Domain.
The workshop Chairs are Andy Palmer <email@example.com> and Daniel
