Semantic Web for Health Care and Life Sciences Interest Group

      Meetings | Participants | Deliverables | Outreach

This is the public wiki for the Semantic Web for Health Care and Life Sciences Interest Group (HCLSIG). See the W3C Web site for the HCLSIG for more information including access to the mailing list.

The HCLS hosts vibrant discussions on a variety of topics on the first Tuesday of every month. Subsequent meetings are organized by one of three broad areas: Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical and Clinical Research, and Health Care. Each area holds a monthly conference call and organizes task forces to focus on specific issues. Task forces meet at regular intervals to discuss issues, plan and report on progress. Meeting times are indicated on this page, but specific dates are available from the HCLS Google calendar.
