The 2015 edition of SWAT4LS will be held in Cambridge, UK (with the hackathon located at the EBI campus in Hinxton).
This year we are changing the format of the event to a 2 days conference.
James Malone, Robert Stevens and Kerstin Forsberg are joining us as scientific chairs, local chair and industry chair for this year's edition.

Our gold sponsor Ontoforce is proposing a challenge for the upcoming SWAT4LS hackathon: define a linked-data representation of people, so that author names from PubMed affiliations can be linked to a URI. We offer an iPad mini to that participant that is able to link most author names in PubMed to a URI. It is allowed to update on existing sources.
We extended the poster and demo submission deadline on the 17th or October. After this date, we "may" still be able to accept posters, but not to publish them in the proceedings.
Early registration deadline is October 20th!
We have extended the deadline for submissions to SWAT4LS: the paper submission deadline is now September 30th (same as the poster deadline). Abstract for papers are to be submitted by the 22nd, in order to help with reviewers assignment.
