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. Growing steadily each year as Semantic Web applications become more widespread, SWAT4LS has been in Edinburgh 2008, Amsterdam 2009, Berlin 2010, London (2011), Paris (2012), Aveiro (SWAT4LS School organized in 2012), Edinburgh (2013) and Berlin (2014). In 2015 SWAT4LS changed format and has been organized as a 2 day conference ( Cambridge, 2015).
SWAT4LS aims at providing an open and stimulating environment that brings together researchers, both developers and users, from areas as diverse as eHealth, medical and clinical informatics, bioinformatics, cheminformatics, drug discovery, drug safety, systems biology, medical physics, data science, and biocomputing, to discuss goals, current limits and real experiences in the application of Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies to challenges in health care and life sciences. The meetings are typically very interactive and are accompanied by tutorials and a hackathon.
You can register for the Tutorials (December 5), Conference (December 6 & 7) and Hackathon (December 8), as well as a combined registration. Find more information about registration fees here.
