EMBRACE Workshop for Web Service Providers in Bioinformatics: Syntax,
Semantics and Publishing
June 2-4, 2010
CBS, Department of Systems Biology, Technical University of Denmark

The workshop will introduce comprehensive guidelines for design, semantic
annotation and publishing of SOAP-based Web Services in the area of life
sciences. The participants should be familiar with the basic concepts of
Web Services, and should preferably already have produced or have been
involved in the production of one or more such services.

The emerging EMBRACE Guidelines for Web Service providers will be
discussed in detail. The following issues of key importance to Web
Service interoperability,\ easiness of use and visibility to the
community will then be covered in depth: use of externally defined
data types (example: BioXSD), semantic annotation (example: EDAM)
and publishing (example: BioCatalogue).

All the points above will be illustrated with hands-on exercises.
They will be performed on the participants' own Web Services. Thus,
each participant should have remote access to his/her own Web Service
generation workbench. Windows laptops with SSH and X11 will be
provided on request.

The workshop will be held at the Center for Biological Sequence
Analysis, Department of Systems Biology, Technical University of
Denmark, building 208, in Lyngby, Denmark, very close to Copenhagen.
It will both start and end at mid-day (Jun 2 and 4, respectively)
leaving ample time to reach most European destinations on the same day.
