BioCreative VII Challenge and Workshop <http://www.biocreative.org/>

Previous iterations of BioCreative have provided invaluable resources for advancing state-of-the-art text mining methods, including reference datasets and system evaluations in both shared and interactive modes.

The COVID-19 pandemic triggered the development of text mining tools to support ongoing research efforts and address the wave of COVID-19 publications. Accordingly, BioCreative VII presents an interactive track to provide developers of COVID-19 text mining tools with feedback from potential users in the research community and announces a new track addressing multi-label topic classification to support the curation of COVID-19 literature.


*(**NEW**)* Track 4 - COVID-19 text mining tool interactive demo



*(NEW)* Track 5 - LitCovid track Multi-label topic classification for

COVID-19 literature annotation


The sudden spread of COVID-19 has challenged the biomedical community to identify potential drug treatments quickly. Thus, BioCreative VII previously presented three tracks focusing on the detection of chemicals, drugs, and related substances:


Track 1 - DrugProt: Text mining drug/chemical-protein interactions



Track 2 - NLM-Chem Track: Full-text Chemical Identification and Indexing

in PubMed articles



Track 3 - Automatic extraction of medication names in tweets


The workshop will take place sometime during the first two weeks for November 2021. See individual tracks for their timelines and http://www.biocreative.org/ for full information.
