From the GMR: The Semantic Web: Fact or Myth?

Hello Network Members,
While this is out of the GMR region, I thought you might be interested in it, especially if you happen to be in the Washington, DC area in November.
Date: Tuesday, November 17, 2009
Time: 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
The Semantic Web: Fact or Myth?
A One-Day Conference co-sponsored by CENDI, FLICC and NFAIS
Location: National Archives, William G. McGowan Theatre, 700 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20408
The term “semantic web” appears everywhere – in journal articles, in conference titles, and even in new product promotional material. But what exactly is semantic web? How does it differ from Web 2.0? Does it really exist? And what are its implications for the future of science and scholarly communication?
Mark your calendar now to attend the one-day conference, The Semantic Web: Fact or Myth, in order to learn the answers to these questions and more.
Registration fee for CENDI, FLICC and NFAIS members is $95.00 and the fee for non-members is $125.00. The fee includes lunch and beverage breaks. For more information and to register, please go to the following site:
