CSHALS Tutorial

W3C’s HCLS group is going to be giving a tutorial at the upcoming Conference on Semantics in Healthcare and Life Sciences (CSHALS), which is being held on February 24-26, in Cambridge, MA. Lee Feigenbaum (Cambridge Semantics) is going to start off the tutorial by giving background information on all of the key Semantic Web standards. Scott Marshall (University of Amsterdam) is then going to give an introduction to the HCLS IG. This will be followed by Elgar Pichler (AstraZeneca), Vipul Kashyap (Cigna), and Tim Clark (Harvard) describing applications of the Semantic Web that they have developed within pharma, healthcare, and scientific publishing respectively. The tutorial will conclude with John Madden (Duke) and Kei Cheung (Yale) describing some of the most cutting edge uses of the technology within terminology and federated query. I’m looking forward to catching up with many people at the conference.
