Hello All! 
The next NCBO Seminar Series is a special session and will be held at a
special time: Wednesday, June 10th, at 11am PST. The seminar will be
presented by Mark Wilkinson, Principal Investigator of the iCAPTURE Centre.
The title of the presentation has changed, and will be ³SADI & CardioSHARE -
a new perspective on Semantic Web Services².

Below is Information on how to join next week¹s online meeting and
accompanying teleconference.

Please contact me with any questions at skanel at For more
information about the series, please visit the Seminar Series home page:

We hope to see you there.

Title: SADI & CardioSHARE - a new perspective on Semantic Web Services

Abstract: The "Deep Web" is a term used to refer to all of the data on the
that is hidden behind interfaces and/or generated by analytical
algorithms, and is therefore inaccessible to search engines.  The quantity
of data in the Deep Web is estimated to be several orders of magnitude
greater than that on the surface Web, and it is therefore critical that we
carefully consider how to make these resources available as we attempt to
build the Semantic Web for healthcare and life sciences.  Our experiences
running the BioMoby project have taught us a great deal about the nature
and behaviours of Semantic Web Services in the bioinformatics space.  We
have now applied this experience to a new Semantic Web Service framework -
SADI (Semantic Automated Discovery and Integration) - which attempts to
expose Deep Web data in a straightforward, standards-compliant manner.
SADI does not define any new technologies, message structures or
ontologies; it merely circumscribes a set of recommended practices for
bioinformatics service providers that result in highly interoperable
behaviours between disparate resources on the Semantic Web.  In this talk
I will present the rationale behind the SADI middleware, and show its
interoperable behaviours through demonstrations of two very different
client applications.  Finally, I will introduce the CardioSHARE project,
where OWL-DL ontologies are used to drive the discovery of cardiovascular
data and analytical tools on the Semantic Web via the SADI framework.
CardioSHARE demonstrates the significant additional power obtained through
defining ontological classes based on their properties rather than
asserted IS-A hierarchies; we hope that such demonstrations will provide
incentive for the community to move toward these richer ontological
