Web Publishing of Scientific Data and Services Training Courses
Training Course 1 will be held in Fredericton (NB), at the NRC-IIT on May 19-20th, 2011
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, New Brunswick 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 contains the following subjects:
Service providers will learn to write semantic web services describing the functionality of their services. This requires modeling of services using the ontology web language and registering the services in the project registry. End Users will learn how to use SHARE and other service workflow orchestration clients to execute queries across the registry and evaluate the results.
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.
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:
- 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.
The C-BRASS Project - Canadian Bioinformatics Resources as Semantic Services - is a CANARIE funded intiative. It will improve research efficiency by encoding 'biological knowledge' into the web itself, reducing researchers’ costs and time-to-discovery.
SADI – Semantic Automated Discovery and Integration <http://sadiframework.org> – is a set of standards-compliant Semantic Web Service design patterns that combines simple, stateless, GET/POST-based Web Services with standards from the W3C Semantic Web initiative.
