IMPORTANT DATES March 7, 2022: Workshop Paper Due Date Submission site: https://www.softconf.com/acl2022/BioNLP2022 March 28, 2022: Notification of Acceptance April 10, 2022: Camera-ready papers due BioNLP 2022 Workshop at ACL, May 26, 2022, Dublin, Ireland

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW AND SCOPE 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 welcomes and encourages inclusion and diversity. 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 2022 will be particularly interested in work on detection and mitigation of bias, BioNLP research in languages other than English, particularly, under-represented languages, and health disparities. Other active areas of research 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; · Τext simplification; Question Answering; Resources and strategies for system testing and evaluation; Infrastructures and pre-trained language models for biomedical NLP / Processing and annotation platforms; Development of synthetic data; Translating NLP research into practice; Getting reproducible results.

Submission Types & Requirements Following the previous conferences, BioNLP 2022 will be open for two types of submissions: long and short papers. Please follow ACL guidelines https://acl-org.github.io/ACLPUB/formatting.html and templates: https://github.com/acl-org/acl-style-files Overleaf templates: https://www.overleaf.com/project/5f64f1fb97c4c50001b60549

SHARED TASK: MedVidQA 2022 The first challenge on Medical Video Question Answering is collocated with the BioNLP 2022 Workshop. MedVidQA focuses on providing relevant segments of videos as answers to health-related questions. Medical videos may provide the best possible answers to many first aid, medical emergency, and medical education questions. Please check the challenge website for details on the tasks, datasets, and submission guidelines: https://medvidqa.github.io
