List of proposed agenda:

  • Objectives of this hackathon and current status of Japanese web services - Toshiaki Katayama
  • From Web API for Biology (WABI) to Semantic Web API for Biology (SABI) - Hideaki Sugawara
  • Current status of the BioMOBY project and vision for the future directions - Mark Wilkinson
  • EMBRACE project and WS-I standard compared with the BioMOBY approach - Jan Christian Bryne
  • Soaplab2 project to wrap up command line packages - Martin Senger
  • Proxying legacy applications and CGIs into BioMOBY - Paul Gordon

Open Space (evening session)

In the evening session, as we have relatively large number of participants, I'd like to use Open Space method for discussing in sub groups.

So, after lunch, we will discuss to select several topics proposed by participants, and all of you will join one of the topic specific groups.

You can switch your group at any time if your interest shifts, but please find some goals that you will tackle with during this BioHackathon by the end of the day.
