The next SWAT4LS will be held in Cambridge, UK, 7-10th December 2015 and will be a full conference for the first time. SWAT4LS 2015 will comprise a tutorials day (7th), main conference (8th and 9th), and a Hackathon day (10th). Tutorials and the conference itself will be held in Clare College, Cambridge and the Hackathon will be at the European Bioinformatics Institute, Hinxton, Cambridge.

Provisional Conference programme available

The 2015 SWAT4LS conference is the seventh meeting in the series and will provide the same open, vibrant and well-organised environment that has previously brought together researchers, developers, and users, from many fields to discuss goals, current limits and real experiences in the use of Semantic Web technologies in health care and the life sciences.

From my own experience, SWAT4LS is a great opportunity to be in contact with researchers, developers and users from several domains and discuss about the most recent advances and issues of the Semantic Web technologies, applications and tools for Life Sciences. More details at SWAT4LS 2015 Web page.
