NAACL-HLT 2010 Second Louhi Workshop on Text and Data Mining of Health Documents
June 5 or 6, Los Angeles, CA
** Submission Deadline: March 07, 2010 **
Submission Instructions: Louhi'10 will only accept electronic submission via its START submission system (https://www.softconf.com/naaclhlt2010/louhi/). The submissions should be in PDF format and anonymised for review. Before submission, carefully consider our submission checklist.
The Second Louhi one-day workshop on Text and Data Mining of Health Documents is a multidisciplinary international workshop, bringing together researchers performing research on health documents. Health documents encompass, but are not limited to, electronic patient records, clinical documentation, discharge letters, care guidelines, scientific text and data related to biohealth, etc. The Second Louhi conference follows Louhi?08, the First conference on Text and Data Mining of Clinical Documents, Turku, Finland, 2008 (http://www.it.utu.fi/louhi/) .
Call for papers and posters:
Louhi'10 is calling for papers and posters presenting original research, case studies or work in progress related to the following areas:
* Clinical Documentation, including topics such as
* Structured and narrative documentation
* Integrating data from various sources (information fusion)
* Clinical classifications (e.g., diagnostic classifications such as ICD-10 and nursing intensity scores)
* Language engineering for clinical content
* Documentation and decision making practices
* Hospital information systems focused mainly on text processing
* Anonymisation / de-identification of clinical texts
* Triage (with Classification)
* Formal Approaches and Methods of Text and Data Mining of Clinical Documents, including topics such as
* Classification and clustering
* Ranking and preference learning
* Information retrieval and extraction
* Sentiment analysis
* Evaluation and Gold Standards
* Corpus Preparation and Tagging
* Practical Cases of Text and Data Mining of Clinical Documents
We welcome submissions on topics related to text and data mining of health documents, particularly emphasizing multidisciplinary aspects of health documentation and the interplay between nursing and medical sciences, information systems, computational linguistics and computer science. We also encourage submissions reporting work on minor languages, representing the diverse challenges that characteristics of different languages pose to common tasks.
Submitted papers should describe original work. Simultaneous submission to other forums (e.g. other conferences with published proceedings) is not allowed. A significant overlap in contents with previously published work should be clearly indicated to the program committee.
Selected papers from the workshop will be invited to the Journal of Biomedical Semantics (http://www.jbiomedsem.com/) for a special issue in Text and Data Mining of Health Documents.
The maximum length for a paper is six pages. Please, use the the two-column format of ACL proceedings (http://naaclhlt2010.isi.edu/authors.html) for your paper and indicate in the submission system whether it is a research, case study or work in progress paper. The maximum length for a paper presented as a poster is two pages. Both page limits are excluding references.
All submissions are double-blind peer reviewed by three program committee members. For double-blind peer review, the initial manuscript submission should not include acknowledgments, authors' names or their affiliations. In addition, extensive referring to own previous work should be avoided and when referring to own previous the authors should do it in third person. The submissions will be judged on originality, relevance, technical quality and presentation.
Papers will be presented by the authors in a regular workshop session and posters by the authors in a poster session. All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. Selected papers will be invited to be published in Journal of Biomedical Semantics for a special issue in Text and Data Mining of Health Documents.
Selected papers from Louhi'08 were published in International Journal of
Medical Informatics, Volume 78, Issue 12, Pages 785-850 (December 2009) Mining of Clinical and Biomedical Text and Data, Special Issue Edited by Helena Karsten, Barbro Back, Sanna Salanterä, Tapio Salakoski
