UK PubMed Central (UKPMC) Workshop – February 4th 2008

UK PubMed Central (UKPMC) Workshop – February 4th 2008:

Few people would argue that good communication is the lifeblood of good science – and the Web is opening up a whole new world of possibilities.
UK PubMed Central is ideally placed to make the best use of new Web technologies and new ideas in semantics and text mining and so to facilitate sharing of the biomedical and health research literature.
We are entering the next stage of developing UKPMC into an innovative and useful resource for UK researchers. We want to ensure that your needs and ideas are heard and incorporated at the outset and to this end we are holding a free one-day workshop on the 4th February 2008.
If you have an interest in helping us shape this vision, then please register for this free workshop. Places are limited – so respond today to reserve your place.
The workshop will be held at the Wellcome Collection Conference Centre, 183 Euston Road, London. Registration is from 9.30 and the meeting will conclude at 17.00.
Confirmed speakers include:
Mark Walport – Director of the Wellcome Trust
Matt Cockerill – BioMed Central
Timo Hannay – Nature Publishing Group
Dietrich Rebholz-Schuhmann – European Bioinformatics Institute
Sophia Anandiadou – University of Manchester
Following the speakers, facilitated workshop sessions will enable attendees to discuss their views about different aspects of developing UKPMC – topics such as ‘search’, ‘enhanced content’ and ‘user-specific functions’ will be considered.
