Text Mining for Biology and Healthcare Special Session at ISMB/ECCB 2019 in Basel, Switzerland


We are pleased to announce a full-day special session on Text Mining for Biology and Healthcare at ISMB/ECCB 2019<https://www.iscb.org/ismbeccb2019> on July 22, 2019, to bring together researchers that create text mining tools with researchers who currently use or are interested in using text mining tools to make new discoveries. The primary goal of the session is to link at least two distinct audiences: those who are not text mining specialists, but who could use the results in their work (e.g., bioinformaticians and computational biologists), and biomedical text mining specialists who develop new methodologies to advance the state of the art. The session will therefore focus on text mining use cases (concrete problems with scientific importance) in addition to methodology development.

As a one-day event, the session will feature keynotes, talks selected from ISMB/ECCB submissions (from both proceedings and talk abstracts), lightning talks (from poster presenters), and a panel discussion. Given the deadline for the proceedings is not far away (January 28, 2019), we are strongly encouraging regular paper submissions covering a broad spectrum from advancing text mining methodology to novel use cases for biology and healthcare.
