Semantic Web Applications and Tools for Life Sciences
Amsterdam, Science Park, 20th November 2009
SWAT4LS is a workshop that provides a venue to present and discuss benefits and limits of the adoption of Semantic Web technologies and tools in biomedical informatics and computational biology. The first edition, held in Edinburgh in November 2008, received 40 submissions, of which 13 were accepted as oral communications, and part of them included in a special issue of BMC Bioinformatics dedicated to the workshop (in preparation). The second edition of SWAT4LS will provide the same open and stimulating environment that brought together researchers, both developers and users, from the various fields of Biology, Bioinformatics and Computer Science, to discuss goals, current limits and real experiences in the use of Semantic Web technologies in Life Sciences.
