I'm thinking of putting together a Content track, and I'd love to have a 
CTAKES talk or two in that!

We might be able to talk someone like Lewis or Chris M into putting on a 
science track. If that happens, I could see there being one good CTAKES 
talk for the content track on how you use UIMA+OpenNLP, then another for 
the science track on how you integrate CTAKEs with other things for 
solving medical/science problems with it

(For $DAYJOB reasons, I'd love for use to heave a healthcare tech track, 
but I'm not sure if there's enough healthcare related projects in the ASF 
yet for a full day's content?)
