Agenda Items Friday December 16 (2005) NIH Roadmap Software and Data Integration Working Group (SDIWG) New Centers meeting Bethesda MD

This SDIWG meeting is held in conjunction with the New NCBC meeting which will be held all day on Friday Dec 16--the full day's agenda is at Full Agenda .

Meeting location: Marriott Bethesda North Hotel and Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Road, North Bethesda, MD 20852 (301-822-9200)


This page deals with the SDIWG component of the New National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBC) meeting on Friday December 16, 2005. The main SDIWG thread is on this Wiki].

Three new NCBCs have been added to the existing list of four. December 16 will be the first in-person meeting of these Centers. The new Principal Investigators are Brian Athey, Andrea Califano, and Mark Musen. The full day's agenda is: Full Agenda . There will be a morning session of 0.5 hour devoted to National Networking and Community Building. The afternoon session will devote 1.25 hours discussion to Software and Data Integration Working Group (SDIWG) issues--and that is what this page is devoted to.

The Charter of SDIWG is: The RFA states the goal of creating “the networked national effort to build the computational infrastructure for biomedical computing for the nation”. Here is a link to relevant text in the Announcement RFA-RM-04-003. In furthering this, the goals of the SDIWG in concert with the Project Team and Centers staff are:

1. To advance the domain sciences, and promote software interoperability and data exchange.

2. To capture the collective knowledge of software engineering and practices among the Centers and publish this knowledge widely.

Since the NCBC program started in the Fall of 2004 we have had a series of monthly tcons, summarized in the minutes pages on this wiki and in the ongoing thread.
