NBDC / DBCLS BioHackathon 2011 was held in Kyoto, Japan. Main focus of the BioHackathon is to develop technologies for handling Linked Data in life science. The participants discussed, explored and developed SPARQL endpoints, semantic web services, triple stores, ontologies, natural language processing, visualization and Open Bio* tools to utilize RDF data.
On the first day of the BioHackathon (Aug. 21), public symposium of the BioHackathon 2011 was held at Campus Plaza Kyoto. In this talk, Michel Dumontier makes a presentation entitled "From Triples to Axioms: On the Path to Formalizing Scientific Knowledge."
