*** WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT ***

EMNLP 2015 Workshop - The Sixth International Workshop on Health Text Mining and Information Analysis (Louhi 2015) http://louhi2015.limsi.fr

Location: EMNLP 2015, in Lisbon, Portugal (September 17, 2015)

** Background **

The Sixth International Workshop on Health Text Mining and Information Analysis provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers interested in automated processing of health documents. Health documents encompass electronic health records, clinical guidelines, spontaneous reports for pharmacovigilance, biomedical literature, health forums/blogs or any other type of health related documents. The Louhi workshop series fosters interactions between the Computational Linguistics, Medical Informatics and Artificial Intelligence communities. It started in 2008 in Turku, Finland and has been organized five times: Louhi 2010 was co-located with NAACL in Los Angeles, CA; Louhi 2011 was co-located with Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME) in Bled, Slovenia; Louhi 2013 was held in Sydney, Australia during NICTA Techfest; and Louhi 2014 was co-located with EACL in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Among the application domains of information extraction, the biomedical domain is one of the most important ones. This is due to the large amount of biomedical text sources including the vast scientific literature and collections of patient reports written in natural language. These sources contain a wealth of crucial knowledge that needs to be mined. Typical mining tasks regard entity recognition, entity-relation extraction, and event and event participant recognition. Recently we witness an interest in the recognition of spatial relationships between entities and of temporal relationships between events. One of the most important problems in information extraction regards dealing with a limited amount of examples that are manually annotated by experts and that can be used for training the extraction models.

In this talk we discuss how we can leverage knowledge contained in unlabelled texts and ontological knowledge about known relationships between the output labels used for the extractions. The former aspect especially focuses on how to automatically create novel training examples from the unlabelled data, the latter on how to integrate the relationships in models for structured machine learning during training and testing of the extraction models in the most efficient way. We show promising results and point to directions of future research.
