Thank you to those who already submitted papers to BioNLP!

Due to about a dozen personal requests to extend the submission deadline, we are now extending the submission to BioNLP till May 13.

Please note, https://www.softconf.com/acl2016/BioNLP16/ is for BIONLP ONLY. If you have submitted your BioASQ or BioNLP-ST paper to that URL, please withdraw your submission and submit the paper to

https://www.softconf.com/acl2016/BioASQ16/ or https://www.softconf.com/acl2016/BioNLP-ST16/ respectively.

Full CFP below:

Berlin, Germany, August 12 -13, 2016 IMPORTANT DATES

- Notification of acceptance: Monday, June 6, 2016

- Camera-ready copy due from authors: Wednesday, June 22, 2016

- BioNLP workshop: Friday, August 12, 2016

- BioNLP-ST and BioASQ workshop: Saturday August 13, 2016


Over the course of the past fourteen years, the ACL BioNLP workshop associated with the SIGBIOMED special interest group has established itself as the primary venue for presenting foundational research in language processing for the biological and medical domains. The workshop serves as both a venue for bringing together researchers in bio- and clinical NLP and exposing these researchers to the mainstream ACL research, and a venue for informing the mainstream ACL researchers about the fast growing and important domain.

The workshop will continue presenting work on a broad and interesting range of topics in NLP.

The active areas of research include:

- Entity identification and normalization for a broad range of semantic


- Extraction of complex relations and events

- Semantic parsing

- Discourse analysis

- Anaphora /Coreference resolution

- Text mining

- Literature based discovery

- Summarization

- Question Answering

- Resources and novel strategies for system testing and evaluation

- Infrastructures for biomedical text mining

- Processing and annotation platforms

- Translating NLP research to practice

- Theoretical underpinnings of biomedical language processing


We invite two types of submissions: full papers and short papers. Submissions are due by 11:59 PM EST on Sunday May 8, 2016.

Full papers should not exceed eight (8) pages of text, plus unlimited references. These are intended to be reports of original research. BioNLP aims to be the forum for interesting, innovative, and promising work involving biomedicine and language technology, whether or not yielding high performance at the moment. This by no means precludes our interest in and preference for mature results, strong performance, and thorough evaluation. Both types of research and combinations thereof are encouraged.

Short papers may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, plus unlimited references. Appropriate short paper topics include preliminary results, application notes, descriptions of work in progress, etc. Electronic Submission

Submissions must be electronic and in PDF format, using the Softconf START conference management system at https://www.softconf.com/acl2016/BioNLP16/ We strongly recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files tailored for this year's conference. Submissions must conform to the official style guidelines. Style files and other information about paper formatting requirements will be made available on the conference website, http://acl2016.org.

*Submissions should be anonymous. * Dual submission policy: papers may *NOT* be submitted to the BioNLP 2016 workshop if they are or will be concurrently submitted to another meeting or publication. Program Committee:
