The BioNLP workshop associated with the ACL SIGBIOMED special interest group has established itself as the primary venue for presenting foundational research in language processing for the biological and medical domains. Despite, or maybe due to reaching maturity, the field of Biomedical NLP continues getting stronger. BioNLP truly encompasses the breadth of the domain and brings together researchers in bio- and clinical NLP from all over the world. The workshop will continue presenting work on a broad and interesting range of topics in NLP. BioNLP welcomes and encourages inclusion and diversity.

We invite submission of long (8 pages) and short papers (4 pages.) The areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Entity identification and normalization (linking) for a broad range of semantic categories Extraction of complex relations and events 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 Explainable models for biomedical NLP Multi-modal models for biomedical NLP Getting reproducible results BioNLP research in languages other than English

Looking forward to another year of excellence in BioNLP research, Dina Demner-Fushman, Kevin Cohen, Sophia Ananiadou, Junichi Tsujii -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
