Dear all

Healtex – the UK healthcare text analytics network – is focused on sharing clinical text analytics methods and algorithms. To support this aim, we are hosting an evening and a day in Sheffield, UK on 16-17 May 2018, where participants will adapt and wrap clinical text analytics software for sharing with GATE, the widely used open source natural language processing architecture.

A small number of short presentations will introduce the GATE API; wrapping software for GATE; new document formats for GATE; considerations for multi-threading, cloud, and web applications with GATE. These will be combined with hackathon sessions where participants will work under the guidance of GATE team members to adapt and wrap their own software.

The hackathon is suitable for those with non-GATE based software that they wish to adapt to GATE, and those with software already adapted to GATE for which they wish to extend or improve adaptation.

To apply to join this event, send us a brief description of the application, method, or algorithm that you would like to share through GATE, together with a CV, to contact at healtex.org by May 1st. We will fund reasonable travel expenses and provide food.



Event start: 17:00 16 May 2018 Event end: 17:00 17 May 2018 Organizer: Healtex Email: contact at healtex.org Website: http://healtex.org Venue: Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield, UK
