The 5th Biomedical Linked Annotation Hackathon (BLAH5), 12-15 January 2018, Kashiwa, Japan http://blah5.linkedannotation.org

**The submission due of proposals (up to 2 pages in PDF) is 14th December**

BLAH (Biomedical Linked Annotation Hackathon) series is organized to promote collaboration for sharing and linking resources for biomedical literature annotation and mining. Here, interested resources include corpora, annotation datasets, databases, software tools and services, terminologies, ontologies, graphics, movies, and so on. However, we hope they are all to be linked each other, particularly through literature, as literature for long time has played a central role for publication of scientific discoveries.

As a hackathon event, we are going to pay our efforts to implement things: each participant is encouraged to come with resources to share and to make links to other resources. Through collaboration during day time, those resources will become more available to the public in a interlinked way. During night time, a venue for creative discussions will be organized, which sometimes bring brilliant ideas. We solicit participation of researchers, engineers, and practitioners, who are interested in sharing and linking resources for biomedical literature mining.

We set "shared tasks" as the special theme of BLAH5, and encourage potential participants to consider their contribution to that direction.
