Stuart Chalk and I will be hosting a symposium at the 250th ACS Meeting in Boston, MA August 16-20, 2015 in the ACS Analytical Chemistry Division entitled “Informatics 2.0 for the Analytical Sciences: Big Data, the Semantic Web, and Metadata” at t. The theme for the 250th meeting is “Innovation from Discovery to Application”.
Symposium Synopsis – Informatics 2.0 for the Analytical Sciences: Big Data, the Semantic Web, and Metadata
Many disciplines in the sciences are rapidly moving into the informatics realm as a way to accelerate scientific progress. While the analytical sciences has been in informatics for a long time (by its nature) the majority of the attention has been focused on LIMS systems (v1.0) and the information needs around those products. This session will highlight research activities in informatics that will move the analytical sciences into the semantic web arena though the development of; data standards, controlled vocabularies, ontologies and semantic annotation.
