The massive amount of publicly available data is an amazing opportunity for artificial intelligence to play a key role in biocuration. Automatic approaches have proven to be effective in supporting life sciences research, yet mining complex and unstructured big data is still a major challenge. Sharing ideas, approaches, and resources is critical to provide biocurators, and bioinformatics teams supporting them, with cutting-edge solutions. The general areas of interest of this workshop include machine learning based approaches for supporting the curation of large volumes of data. The objective is to present new machine learning models and algorithms for classifying textual and non-textual documents; supporting triage; discovering bio-entities in documents, and link them to relevant knowledge bases; predicting data of interest for curation and experimental investigation; retrieving various types of documents – articles, genomics feature files, experimental data, etc.; supporting biocuration of huge volumes of data.
Submission Guidelines == We invite submissions of full papers (up to 6 pages), short papers, posters, system description and demonstrations (up to 4 pages). Papers must be presented in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers published or simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. All submissions will be reviewed using a simple blind process, and will be assessed based on their novelty, potential impact, and clarity of writing. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop, and included in the workshop proceedings. At least one author of each paper is expected to register for the workshop, and attend to present the paper.
Papers must be formatted according to the workshop LaTeX, Libre Office or Microsoft Word template: - LaTeX: http://mlbdbio.uqam.ca/templates/template_mlbigdat_workshop_biocuration2017_latex.zip - LibreOffice: http://mlbdbio.uqam.ca/templates/template_mlbigdat_workshop_biocuration2017_libreoffice.odt - MS Word: http://mlbdbio.uqam.ca/templates/template_mlbigdat_workshop_biocuration2017_msword.docx
