4th International SWAT4LS Workshop - Semantic web applications and tools for life sciences

December 7-9th*, 2011 London, UK

SWAT4LS is a workshop that provides a venue to present and discuss benefits and limits of the adoption of Web based information systems and Semantic technologies in biomedical informatics and computational biology.

The 2011 edition of SWAT4LS will be articulated on a one day workshop, preceded by a one day hackathon and one day of tutorials.

We are confident that the next 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-based technologies in the Life Sciences and Biomedical Informatics.
