Early Registration ends May 8, 2009.
Taking place 14-18 June 2009 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, California, the five-day event is the most extensive ever assembled, drawing hundreds of executives, technologists, researchers, entrepreneurs, academics, and evangelists from around the world to address best practices on utilizing semantic technologies to manage information across organizations of all sizes.

You see applications that range from knowledge discovery and representation for research and drug development, to large scale information sharing and analytics for medical records. The healthcare industry is pioneering a lot of great work in the semantic field."
