The 2015 SWAT4LS conference 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. 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 be a tutorials day (7th), main conference (8th and 9th), and a

Tutorials and the conference itself will be held in Clare College, Cambridge
and the Hackathon will be at the European Bioinformatics Institute, Hinxton,
Cambridge.  Conference details are to be found at



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to Semantic Web technologies
in the following areas:


- Tools for the management and analysis of semantic data in the life
sciences, medicine and health care

- The description, integration,  analysis and use of data in pursuit of
challenges in the life sciences, medicine and health

- Semantically enabled tools for the life sciences, medicine and health

- Knowledge representation for biomedical knowledge bases

- Harnessing biomedical ontologies and terminologies with medical standards
for information exchange

- Electronic Health Records (EHRs), patient data  and clinical trial data

- Enabling translational medicine and personalized medicine

- Semantic scientific publishing in the life sciences, medicine and health

- Rule based systems exploiting semantics

- NLP and text mining using semantic technologies

- Emerging technologies in Semantic Web, e.g. JSON-LD, graph databases

- Empirical studies and evaluation of Semantic Web tools and applications in
the life sciences

- Related standards such as CDISC, HL7 and LOINC used with semantic

- Ethical issues and data governance in health care and medical data on
Semantic Web

- Future directions for Semantic Web technologies in the life sciences
