Second Call For Papers


A Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing Session
January 3-7, 2007
Grand Wailea Resort, Wailea, Maui, Hawaii


Paper submissions due: July 17, 2006
Notification of paper acceptance: September 6, 2006
Final paper deadline: September 25, 2006
Meeting dates: January 3-7, 2007


Papers are invited on the topic of text data mining in its strictest
sense: providing users with information not explicitly stated in
text. Work submitted to this session will be required to be more
ambitious with respect to either theory or reach than the entity
identification, information extraction, and information retrieval
projects that comprise most work in biomedical language processing.

We especially solicit work in the following areas:

o Question answering
o Summarization
o Mining data from full text including figures, tables, and images
o Coreference resolution and normalization
o User-driven systems, including user needs, user model, interactive
systems, and user interfaces for biomedical language processing
o Evaluation: test collections and evaluation methods

o All papers must be submitted to Russ Altman in PostScript (.ps),
Adobe Acrobat (.pdf), or Microsoft Word (.doc) format. Adobe Acrobat
is preferred.

o Attached files should be named with the last name of the first
author (e.g. altman.ps, altman.pdf, or altman.doc). Hardcopy
submissions or unprocessed TeX or LaTeX files will be rejected
without review.

o Every paper must be accompanied by a cover letter which must include
the following:
- The email address of the corresponding author
- The specific PSB session that the paper should be considered for
- A statement that the submitted paper contains original,
unpublished results, and is not currently under consideration
- A statement that all authors concur with the contents of the

o Submitted papers are limited to twelve (12) pages in the PSB
publication format.

o Please format your paper according to the instructions found at

o If figures cannot easily be resized and placed precisely in the
text, then it should be clear that with appropriate modifications,
the total manuscript length would be within the page limit.

o Color pictures can be printed at the expense of the authors.
The fee is $500 per page of color pictures, payable at the time of
camera-ready submission.

o Contact Russ Altman (russ.altman at stanford.edu) for additional
information about paper submission requirements.
