Just wondering what is the best way to glue and clamp together a half ring.I have been glueing the whole ring together using large pipe clamps or hose clamps.Do you glue all the pieces together ,leaving the half way joints free of glue or is there a different way of glueing and clamping up the half ring.

Depends.
I have made half rings using a rub joint glue up.
ex. 6 segments to a half.  Glue up three pairs of 2 segments by using a rub joint.  Then glue the two of the pairs together then add the last pair. 

I have also used hose clamps with a spacer between the two halves.  I use this if the joints are spot on.

There is really no need to clamp standard segments.
I apply glue to one segment and then rub (distribute the glue evenly across the faces) the two segments together. Once I have the glue spread out, i align them and apply hand pressure for a few seconds and wipe away any excess glue. The adhesives today are quite strong and I have never had one break under normal handling, that includes using an appropriate BS blade.
I had to look, but here is a pic or basic segments being glued (rub joint) in pairs

This is why I come to this sight, so many great ideas. Thumbs Up
When gluing the thin 1/2 rings together do you have to do anything special to keep them flat?

Nothing really special. I do usually put a clamp lightly across the joint to keep them from slipping. using masking tape of blue painters tape can also help keep the joint aligned.

I'm glad some of you are having success with this process, but it's not just a time/material saver. I have found that this is useful as a design tool. Sometimes it can be difficult to maintain grain/color, even in the same piece of wood. If, for example, you're planning to "frame" your feature ring, you may want the framing to match.
In the pic, the top and bottom most maple rings were cut using this method. I wanted to have a matching bracket on either side of the feature ring.
Each maple ring is 1/8", this would have been a pain, or a waste of time/material to do one at a time., I'm sorry, it's not the best example or quality pic
