12:15-12:30 Wrap up session (Michel Dumontier)

Semantic publishing is "anything that enhances the meaning of a published journal article, facilitates its automated discovery, enables its linking to semantically related articles, provides access to data within the article in actionable form, or facilitates integration of data between papers" [Shotton 2009]. Stronger notions of semantic publishing envisage that the main scientific claims are formally represented and published as entities in their own right. In this workshop we will discuss how to advance practice with respect to these ideals in the age of Big Data and Data Science.

Anticipated outcomes of the workshop include:
  • Learn about the state of the art in semantic publishing
  • Critically evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of semantic annotation versus genuine semantic publishing
  • Assess the role of scientific data with respect to the research article
  • Discuss the sociotechnological challenges faced by semantic publishing
  • Bring academic and commercial interests together
  • Build social networks and identify opportunities for collaboration.
  • Participate in the development of a white paper on semantic publishing
