Overview
======================================================

Since 2008, SWAT4LS is a workshop that has provided a platform for the presentation and discussion of the
benefits and limits of applying web-based information systems and semantic technologies in Biomedical
Informatics and Computational Biology.

Growing steadily each year as Semantic Web applications become more widespread, SWAT4LS has been in
Edinburgh 2008, Amsterdam 2009, and Berlin 2010, with London planned for 2011. The last edition of
SWAT4LS was held in Berlin, on December 10th, 2010 with more than 100 attendees. It was preceded by two days
of tutorials and other associated events.

We are confident that the next edition of SWAT4LS will provide the same open and stimulating environment
that continues to bring together researchers, both developers and users, from domains spanning health
care, life sciences, clinical research and translational medicine, to discuss goals, current limits
and real experiences in the use of Semantic Web technologies in Life Sciences.

Rationale
======================================================

The Web is a key medium for information publishing, and Web-based information systems play a key role in
biomedical information exchange and integration. At the same time, the variety and complexity of
biomedical information call for the adoption of semantic-based solutions. The Semantic Web provides a
set of technologies and standards that are key to supporting semantic markup, ontology development,
distributed information resources and collaborative social environments. Altogether the adoption of
the Web-based semantic-enabled technologies in the Life Sciences has a potential impact on the future of
publishing, scientific communication, and biomedical research. This workshop will provide a venue to
present and discuss benefits and limits of the adoption of these technologies and tools in
  biomedical informatics and computational biology. It will serve as a showcase for experiences,
information resources, tools development and applications.

Topics
======================================================

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Standards, Technologies, Tools for the Semantic Web

o Semantic Web standards and new proposals (e.g.: RDF, OWL, SKOS, SPIN, RuleML)
o Tools for ontology management, editing and versioning
o RDF stores, Reasoners, query and visualization systems
o Formal approaches to large biomedical knowledge bases
o Tools for semantic-enabled web publication
o Alternative approaches to integrate semantic representations and web based solutions

- Systems for a Semantic Web for Bioinformatics

o Biomedical knowledge bases on the Semantic Web
o EHR and clinical research data interoperability and reuse
o Clinical data pipelines for supporting tailored therapy and molecular medicine
o Tracking genotype and phenotype assertions with provenance
o Semantic biomedical Web Services
o Semantics aware Biological Data Integration Systems
o Semantic-enabled biomedical information systems and solutions
o Linked Data for biomedical research, drug development and discovery

- Existing and prospective applications of the Semantic Web for Bioinformatics

[Dbworld] Registration is open - Cross-Language !ndian Text Re-Use


              CL!TR - Cross-Language !ndian Text Re-Use

                held in conjunction with the FIRE 2011 
              Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation
                 in Bombay, India, 2-4 December 2011
      http://www.dsic.upv.es/grupos/nle/fire-workshop-clitr.html
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The registration for the task on Cross-Language !ndian Text Re-Use at
FIRE is now open. A mailing list has been created as well in order to 
let discussion among participants.

Both registration and mailing list subscription forms are available 
through the task website (Registration/Discussion section).

Note that participants are allowed to submit up to three runs in order
to experimenting with different settings. 

The call for participation follows.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
In this first edition of the evaluation task the focus is exclusively 
on the cross-language text re-use detection task on Indian languages. 
Text re-use detection across languages represents an interesting 
retrieval task, which is even more challenging when considering 
languages distantly related, yet in permanent contact (this year we 
start with the English-Hindi).

As Wikipedia has been identified as a preferred source for students, 
some of whom fall into the temptation of re-using its contents over 
their own writing, the collection of texts provided includes several 
Wikipedia articles (in English), some of which could have been 
considered when answering to a set of questions (in Hindi). The 
proposed task is to retrieve, if it is the case, the Wikipedia 
article that has been used to generate a dubious piece of text.

We invite researchers and practitioners from all fields to participate.

-  Social and technical requirements for collaborative web service development
-  Platforms and user interfaces for crowdsourcing web service development, and verification
-  Techniques for contextualized reviewing and rating of web services
-  Methods to incentivize, boost, and influence community participation throughout the lifecycle of web services
-  Methods to define and mashup service descriptions with Linked Data vocabularies
-  Systems and techniques for context- and social-based recommendation of web services
-  Methods for collaborative authoring of semantic annotations (for example RDFa, SAWSDL)
- Argumentation frameworks and norms for reaching consensus on service implementation, description,
and integration
-  Trust in collaborative web service construction
-  Mining, monitoring and analysis of behaviour and activities of web service online communities (such as
ProgrammableWeb, and Seekda)
-  Analysis of web service usage patterns and associated social and technical parameters
-  Extraction of web service descriptions from tags
-  Case studies for use of social computing to construct and manage web services

*Submissions*
Abstracts of no more than 400 words must be submitted in PDF to EasyChair
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aaaisymposia2012) by October 7, 2012. Authors of
accepted abstracts will need to submit either a short (3 page) or long (6 page) paper versions by January
10, 2012. 

*Format*
The symposium will include presentations of short and long papers, research proposals, demonstrations,
invited speakers, panel and open discussions. Researchers working in areas of semantic web, web
services, linked data, intelligent agents, social networks, social computing or web science will be
