Participant Introductions

The following is a index of people (ordered alphabetically by surname) who introduced themselves on the W3C mailing list, expressing an interest in the SemanticWebForLifeSciences, the W3C Health Care and Life Sciences Interest Group (HCLSIG). This is NOT a complete and definitive list of active members (see HCLSIG membership note), it only shows subscribers to the mailing list who introduced themselves.

Suggestions about using Semantic Web technology to manage and browse this index are made at the bottom of this page.

Suggestions Re: using SWTech to improve access to this list

Three suggestions about improving this index using Semantic Web technology (e.g. FOAF) are made below.

Suggestion 1

a FOAF version of this index could also be created using SciFOAF using a pubmed identifier, for example 14728458 (Protege paper co-authored by Mark Musen) to seed a FOAF file.

Suggestion 2

Connotea is a free online reference management service. It allows you to save links to all your favourite articles, references, websites and other online resources with one click. Connotea is also a social bookmarking tool, so you can view other people's collections to discover new, interesting content. A group about semantic web in life science was created by Eric Jain. Papers and references about semantic web can be found using [1].

If you want to introduce yourseld use connotea the following way:

  1. register on connotea
  2. register to the group semweb-lifesci
  3. add a new bookmarklets which links to your home page. Do use semantic web and me as tags. You can use the comment field to write a short bio. And you can also add a geotagged tag in order to answer the following question: "where is your laboratory ?", "who is playing with the semantic web near me ?". geotagged tag can also be used to generate an input for google-earth
  4. you can also describe yourself or your team on the connotea community wiki. This gives you a unique URI that can also be used in a FOAF file.

An example

Suggestion 3

O'Reilly publishing has released a new web site called O'Reilly Connections used for IT networking. This site can be used to generate FOAF. Register that site, add semantic web and/or semweb-lifesci in your skills and you can also send invitation to your colleagues to grow your network.

Discussion Topics at First Face to Face Meeting (Jan. 25-26,2006, Boston)

HclsigDscussionTopics is a collection of topics and references to those topics that are proposed by the intended participants of the first F2F meeting of the HCLSIG group. It aims to better prepare the participants for the break-out session discussions.
