Third Louhi Workshop on Health Documentation Text Mining and Information Analysis July 6, Bled, Slovenia. Collocated with AIME 2011
Submission Deadline: April 21, 2011
Submission Instructions: Louhi 2011 will only accept electronic submission via its EasyChair submission system (https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=louhi2011 ). The submissions should be in PDF format and anonymized for review.
The Third Louhi one-day workshop on Health Documentation Text Mining and Information Analysis 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 Third 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/ ) and Louhi 10 the Second Louhi Workshop on Text and Data Mining of Health Documents in Los Angeles, California (http://dsv.su.se/en/louhi10/ ).
Louhi 2011 is calling for papers presenting original research, case studies or work-in-progress related to the following areas:
Processing of clinical documents, including topics such as: Classification and analysis of text content. Mixed source documents, and combinations of text and encoded/ structured information. Discourse, dialogue, and pragmatics. Information extraction. Removal of sensitive and identifying information. Information retrieval. Knowledge acquisition. Language generation. Language resources, evaluation methods and metrics, science of annotation. Use of lexical, ontological, semantic resources. Machine translation. Statistical and and symbolic machine learning methods. Summarization. Sentiment analysis. Automated coding and structuring. Text mining. Interactive and dialogue-based documentation and text production. Referent tracking and management. Textual entailment and paraphrasing. Topic and text classification. Word sense disambiguation.
Intelligent re-use of clinical documentation, including: Clinical decision making and guidelines based on clinical documentation. Automated reasoning and metareasoning using clinical documentation. Use of clinical documentation within clinical trials, eScience; research-support information systems, workflow support. Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Human-Computer Interaction, as well as Information Visualization based on clinical documentation and EHR content. Collaborative exchange of textual EHR information between provider and patient; between providers in different organisations; between different professions. Personalized medicine based on clinical documentation. Experience reports from practical applications of: Text technology in clinical documentation systems Data mining in clinical documentation systems
We particularly welcome submissions from either academia or industry emphasizing multidisciplinary aspects of health documentation and the interplay between clinical professions, patient and provider, different organizations, human and computer. We strongly encourage submissions reporting on work for minor languages, representing the diverse challenge that traits in 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.
Papers should be written in English, according to Springer LNCS format (available here:http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0)
and should not exceed 6 pages including figures, tables and references. Please indicate in the submission system whether it is a research, case study or work-in-progress paper. Louhi 2011 will only accept electronic submission via its Easychair submission server. The submissions should be in PDF format and anonymised for review.
All submissions are double-blind peer reviewed by two 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 works, 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. All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
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; selected papers from Louhi'10 were published in the Journal of Biomedical Semantics for a special issue in Text and Data Mining of Health Documents. Selected papers will be proposed for publication in a journal. This is still under negotiation.
