Embark on a four-day exploration at SWAT4HCLS 2024 in Leiden, The Netherlands, where we delve deep into the convergence of data integration, semantic technologies, and life sciences. Since our inception in 2008, we have grown from a focused workshop into a comprehensive four-day event, encompassing tutorials, conferences, and hackathons.

Our conference’s scope embraces life sciences as a collective term encompassing healthcare, biology, biodiversity, and agriculture. This inclusive approach allows us to address the multifaceted challenges and opportunities in biomedical and agricultural domains, emphasizing data-driven approaches and stellar data management practices.

SWAT4HCLS 2024 is more than just a conference; it’s a confluence of diverse perspectives and expertise. We are committed to fostering an open, dynamic dialogue transcending the traditional boundaries of academia, industry, and institutional frameworks. Whether you’re with us in picturesque Leiden or engaging remotely, we guarantee an interactive experience with live streaming and chat-based participation.

Prepare for an event as informative as it is groundbreaking, where ideas intersect, professional networks expand, and the future of life sciences and semantic technologies unfolds.

Join us at SWAT4HCLS 2024 – where the worlds of agriculture, biodiversity, healthcare, and biology meet the cutting-edge of technology.
