I've just added the programme to the Eventbrite page:
"The workshop will be divided into three sections.
From 1000 to 1300 there will be an introduction to
systematic reviews and evidence-based medicine, somewhat unconventional and from a data
angle. We’ll work with a seven-factor view of how the quality gap between scientific
discovery and medical knowledge is bridged.
A lunch will be provided, from 1300 to 1340. At 1340 there will be a 50-minute general
interest talk, as advertised on the official Festival page. It will be directed towards
lay folk with an interest in searching the medical literature online.
From 1430 the workshop will continue, with a look at
“Prospects”, picking up on themes from the first section with emphasis on the application
of the Semantic Web, in particular Wikidata, in the areas of review literature and lay
This is a ScienceSource event, but overall more on the medical side. The afternoon section
will be broadening out on the Wikidata side, otherwise known as WikiCite, MEDRS and so on.
Hope to see some of you there.
