The increase in the volume and heterogeneity of biomedical data sources has motivated researchers to embrace Linked Data (LD) technologies to solve the ensuing integration challenges and enhance information discovery. As an integral part of the EU GRANATUM project, a Linked Biomedical Dataspace (LBDS) was developed to semantically interlink data from(More)
Multiple datasets that add high value to biomedical research have been exposed on the web as a part of the Life Sciences Linked Open Data (LSLOD) Cloud. The ability to easily navigate through these datasets is crucial for personalized medicine and the improvement of drug discovery process. However, navigating these multiple datasets is not trivial as most(More)
The objectives of the SWAT4LS workshop are to provide a forum dedicated to the dissemination of original research, the discussion of practical insights, and the reporting on relevant experience relating to the adoption of Web based information systems and Semantic technologies in biomedical informatics and computational biology. The workshop also aims at(More)
The dynamicity of sensor data sources and publishing real-time sensor data over a generalised infrastructure like the Web pose a new set of integration challenges. Semantic Sensor Networks demand excessive expressivity for efficient formal analysis of sensor data. This article specifically addresses the problem of adapting data model specific or(More)
The LOD cloud comprises of billions of facts covering hundreds of datasets. In accordance with the Linked Data principles, these datasets are connected by a variety of typed links, forming an interlinked "Web of Data". The growing diversity of the Web of Data makes it more and more challenging for publishers to find relevant datasets that could be linked(More)
A significant portion of the LOD cloud consists of Life Sciences data sets, which together contain billions of clinical facts that interlink to form a "Web of Clinical Data". However, tools for new publishers to find relevant datasets that could potentially be linked to are missing, particularly in specialist domain-specific settings. Based on a set of(More)
Linked Open Data (LOD) Cloud is a mesh of open datasets coming from different domains. Among these datasets, a notable amount of datasets belong to the life sciences domain linked together forming an interlinked “Life Sciences Linked Open Data (LSLOD) Cloud”. One of the key challenges for data publishers is to identify and establish links between newly(More)
BACKGROUND Several query federation engines have been proposed for accessing public Linked Open Data sources. However, in many domains, resources are sensitive and access to these resources is tightly controlled by stakeholders; consequently, privacy is a major concern when federating queries over such datasets. In the Healthcare and Life Sciences (HCLS)(More)
Biosimulation models have been recently introduced to understand the exact causative factors that give rise to impairment in human organs. Finite Element Method (FEM) provides a mathematical framework to simulate dynamic biological systems, with applications ranging from human ear, cardiovascular, to neurovascular research. Due to lack of a well-integrated(More)
