** Important dates ** July 20 Deadline for submission of flash talks July 28 Registration deadline August 4-5 Symposium dates

We are inviting flash talks from a full range of topics (see below). You will be given a 10-minutes slot to present your work. Proposals (1-page abstract) should be sent by mail to Mariana Neves.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Development and use of biomedical semantic resources - Terminology and ontology development for biomedical information systems including terminology evolution - Integration of text and data mining in the biomedical domain - (Semantic) Web mining of biomedical information - Text mining, information extraction, information retrieval, summarization, question answering and machine translation for the biomedical domain - Evaluation techniques and standards for text mining solutions - Annotation schemes for biomedical corpora - Text mining for resource building, e.g. ontologies, and resource enrichment, e.g., biomedical databases - Representation and discovery of biomedical domain knowledge - Image/caption processing in relation to content extraction - Image processing for biomedicine - Domain-specific reasoning processes, e.g., to infer non-explicit information, validation (trust-worthiness, believability, safety) of extracted information - Integration of text mining in biological database curation workflows


SMBM 2016 aims to bring together researchers from text, data and image mining in biomedicine, medical/clinical, bio- and chemoinformatics, as well as researchers active in biomedical ontology design and engineering, and in the Semantic Web. The combined research helps to promote full integration of data and factual content from large text collections, biological databases, image collections, ontological and terminological resources, and from the Web.

However, many challenges have yet to be met to achieve this ambitious goal. Significant advances have been made and many working systems for tasks ranging from semantics-driven literature analysis to cross-resource data analysis and open linked data on the web have been suggested and deployed. Where do we stand and how do we advance toward fully integrated systems combining the different solutions and data sources?

SMBM 2016 is the follow-up event to SMBM 2014 (University of Aveiro, Portugal), SMBM 2012 (University of Zürich, Switzerland), SMBM 2010 (EBI, U.K.), SMBM 2008 (University of Turku, Finland), SMBM 2006 (University of Jena, Germany), and SMBM 2005 (EBI, United Kindgdom).
