CSHALS is back for a 3rd year and you won’t want to miss it! This is the annual ISCB Conference on Semantics in Healthcare and Life Sciences, and it’s happening February 24-26 at the Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge, MA. Registration is open, with early discounts through January 20th. The hotel is offering group rates for reservations received by...

Thanks to everyone for making C-SHALS 2009 the most successful C-SHALS conference to date!

Venue for CSHALS 2010? Eric mentioned that we're at least weighing the option of having two CSHALS 2010 conferences: one in the US, and the other in Europe. What are your thoughts?
One in Europe would be very welcome... two meetings might be good to speed things up... - Egon Willighagen
Maybe Amsterdam or Stockholm/Uppsala? :) - Egon Willighagen

CSHALS 2009 is officially adjourned. It was terrific. Thanks, everybody!

We hope to see you at CSHALS 2010! It would be great to hear from those who attended what went well and what you thought we should do better next year. Add your thoughts as comments to this note!
When, where? - Egon Willighagen
We don't know yet, but stay tuned! - Ted Slater

Link the data in a robust and extensible way using RDF. - Ted Slater
Decide what complexity you need for your ontology. Use the community to help you make your decisions. - Ted Slater
Law of Least Power: don't try to get anything too heavy out the door, but take advantage of familiar, easy-to-understand things like Excel and Exhibit. - Ted Slater
The time is now for applying Semantic Web technologies to healthcare and life sciences. Do it, and tell the community at CSHALS. - Ted Slater
Vendors, tools, experts, customers -- the community is coming together. - Ted Slater
Activities: Chem-URI, sharing (and building) useful ontologies, a business-savvy Semantic Web framework. - Ted Slater

transcribing from Eric's slide for those using this as note taking:
1. Link the data - Jonas Almeida
2. Decide what complexity is needed for ontology - Jonas Almeida
3. Law of least power (e.g. Exhibit, Excel) - Jonas Almeida
4. Time is now for SW - Jonas Almeida

Ramon Felciano sort of views "confidence" as a lens through which you view your network of facts, rather than trying to assign a hard confidence level to individual facts.

IP issues cited by GAO as hampering DD efforts...
Not to mention things like genomics and high-throughput sequencing generally thought of as beneficial. The list is about to turn 3 years old; I wonder what other things we can add today. - Ted Slater

Bruce says it's much more powerful to see statistical enrichments of sets of gene information, rather than just mashing stuff together. Nice set of web services, maybe? - Ted Slater
