The 4th Biomedical Linked Annotation Hackathon (BLAH4), 10-13 January 2018, Kashiwa, Japan http://blah4.linkedannotation.org

* The deadine of proposal submission is extended to 17th Semtember. * We appreciate those who have already submitted. * We are happy to announce four keynote speakers

BLAH4 is organized as an open forum for collaborative development of software, data sets, specifications, application cases, and so on, with the goal of creating “linked” annotation resources to biomedical literature. The event consists of a symposium (1 day) and a hackathon (3 days). The symposium will be used to exchange ideas and visions for the progress of the community, and the following three days will be dedicated to collaboratively developing the ideas. We view the hackathon is a new trend in establishing close collaborations for shared resources, in an era of open source software.
