Berlin 2014

Since 2008, the SWAT4LS Workshop has provided a platform for the presentation and discussion of the benefits and limits of applying web-based information systems and semantic technologies in the domains of health care and life sciences. SWAT4LS has been held in Edinburgh (2008), Amsterdam (2009), Berlin (2010), London (2011), Paris (2012) and Edinburgh (2013).

The next edition of SWAT4LS will be held in Berlin, DE, December 9-11th December 2014. It will be articulated in a workshop day (10th), a tutorials day (9th) and an hackathon day (11th).

We are confident that the next edition of SWAT4LS will provide the same open and stimulating environment that has previously brought together researchers, developers, and users, from various fields including eHealth, biomedical and clinical informatics, systems biology, computational biology, drug discovery, bioinformatics and biocomputing, to discuss goals, current limits and real experiences in the use of Semantic Web and Linked-Data technologies in health care and the life sciences.
