Get ready for C-SHALS 2009!

We had a great time at C-SHALS last Spring, and many new conversations have grown from that. We have now compiled the program for C-SHALS 2009 (Feb 25-28, ), and it promises to be even better than last time. Many internal groups have been doing cutting-edge work over the last several months, and the upcoming Conference will be an excellent place to showcase many of these. 

Our keynote line-up is also stellar, and will anchor all the other discussions that will follow. In addition, we've included tech-talks by vendors of semantic solutions, and have a poster session as well for advances in the academic community.

Please join us at the conference to be part of this exciting and growing field!
