CFP: Workshop on Language Technology applied to biomedical documents

Workshop on Language Technology applied to biomedical documents
SEPLN 2010 satellite workshop

In the last decade, language technology has received an increasing interest as suitable solution to retrieval and analyse the huge volume of published documents in biological domain. Recently, medical domain also benefit from the application of such technology. The workshop is intended to provide a forum for discussing the latest advances of language technology applied to biological and medical domains. The workshop aims to provide a broad view on the shortcomings of current existing techniques, tools, or resources as well as emergent applications concerning accessing scientific publications and health general interest documents with special attention to non English documents.

Authors are invited to submit original papers addressing any of the following key topics but not limited to:

  • Text mining from clinical documents
  • Integration of biomedical resources in specific applications
  • Woks on minor languages and/or different from English
  • Real world applications (IR systems for medical and scientific specialists, medical education, health knowledge organization, ERH...)
  • Evaluation methodologies
  • Biomedical corpus development
  • Information Retrieval in health domain
  • Classification of clinical and biological documents (for instance, ICD-10)
  • Biomedical Named Entity Recognition and Concept Identification
  • Information Extraction from biological and clinical documents
  • Anonymisation of clinical texts
  • Information fusion: integrating data from heterogeneous biomedical sources, connecting resources
  • Methods of creating, reviewing and editing scientific content
  • Summarization of electronic patient records, medical reports, scientific articles, etc.
  • Creation of biomedical annotated corpora
  • Creation and evaluation of linguistic tools for biomedical domain in different languages
  • Evaluation methodologies in biomedical domain: system-oriented and user-oriented evaluations
