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.
