2nd Workshop on Multilingual Biomedical Text Processing (MultilingualBIO 2020)

16 May 2020 – Marseille, France – co-located with LREC 2020

CALL FOR PAPERS

http://temu.bsc.es/multilingualbio2020/

****** DEADLINE: 21 February 2020*******

The second edition of MultilingualBIO, at the LREC 2020 Conference <https://lrec2020.lrec-conf.org/en/>, is a unique opportunity to promote the development of biomedical text processing resources and components in languages beyond English, exploring the use of novel methodological advances, e.g. transfer-learning techniques such as contextual embeddings, for a diversity of tasks in the domain, including machine translation.

In this workshop, we plan to address issues, such as the following (but not restricted to):

-

Building of MT systems adapted to the biomedical domain.

-

Production of multilingual corpora in the biomedical domain.

-

Creation (and translation) of multilingual biomedical glossaries,

ontologies and terminological resources

-

Application of transfer-learning techniques across tasks in the

biomedical domain, such as contextual embeddings.

-

Extension of the coverage of the normative terminologies to languages

other than English (e.g. ontologies from the Open Biomedical Ontology

repository like HPO, LOINC, MEDRA, UMLS, SNOMED-CT, RxNorm etc).

-

Dealing with localization issues, including adaptation to local

varieties of international languages (UK vs USA English, Spanish from Spain

and Latin America or USA, etc.).

-

NLP and text mining applied to health, biomedicine and related domains.

-

Medical named entity recognition and grounding systems beyond English.
