About these proceedings


This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th International Workshop on Data Integration in the Life Sciences, DILS 2008, held in Evry, France in June 2008.

The 18 revised full papers presented together with 3 keynote talks and a tutorial paper were carefully reviewed and selected from 54 submissions. The papers adress all current issues in data integration and data management from the life science point of view and are organized in topical sections on Semantic Web for the life sciences, designing and evaluating architectures to integrate biological data, new architectures and experience on using systems, systems using technologies from the Semantic Web for the life sciences, mining integrated biological data, and new features of major resources for biomolecular data.
