Web Publishing of Scientific Data and Services Training Courses

This series of training courses is mandated to train service providers in the use of modern semantic approaches to publishing informatics resources on the Web using the semantic web services paradigm. The first Web Publishing of Scientific Data and Services Training Course will be held in Fredericton, NB, CANADA on May 19-20th, 2011.

Semantic Web Services have rich descriptions of functional requirements that facilitate service interoperability and make it easier for users to discover and access relevant services in real time. The course provides both theory and practical training in the semantic technologies that underpin the development of semantic web services.The training course is divided into the following modules:

* Semantic Web
* Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
* Web Services
* SADI Semantic Web Services

At the end of the training, attendees will know how to:

* publish their data and algorithms on the Web in a manner that is easy for others to find and access using state of the art toolkits.

* ensure their data and tools integrate well with other resources on the Web.

* enhance query access and service discoverability for target end-user communities.

Target Audience

This training course is primarily of interest to providers of bioinformatic resources seeking to extend the utility and usability of thier data and services. Researchers interested in learning state of the art semantic technologies and their deployment to facilitate web scale interoperability are strongly encouraged to attend. Priority will be given to students and professionals with working knowledge of Perl and/or Java.

Profile of Target Audience:

* Grid Computing Architects and Developers interested in building globally interoperable systems;

* Web Developers and Bioinformatics researchers seeking to ensure the adoption of their technologies in the knowledge discovery;

* Workflow system developers coordinating computational and data resources across the web using semantics;

* Industry pioneers in Workflow, Grid and Semantic technologies;

* Researchers involved in Web-based Knowledge Discovery in Bioinformatics.
