Building and evaluating resources for biomedical text mining

 

 

We invite papers reporting on biomedical resources specifically used to facilitate biomedical text mining and the process of designing, building, updating, delivering, evaluating and disseminating them. A focus of the workshop is on lexical and knowleess questions such as the
following:

- How can we get a clearer picture of the writers' processes, strategies
and needs (for example, by looking over their shoulders, or asking them
to annotate text or make their needs explicit via the use of verbal
protocols)?

- Which components of the overall task could be and should be supported?

- What specific resources, algorithms and tools exist that could be used
to improve existing authoring aids or to build new ones?

- How do we evaluate such tools ?

One potential outcome of the workshop would be a roadmap for future research
in the field, as well as some awareness-raising with regard to the needs and
potential of authoring aids.


Workshop Topics
---------------

The topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

- writing processes, and computational tools to support the writer;
- resources to assist in writing;
- NLP techniques that can be used or have been used for assisting in
writing, including: grammar checking, document structuring, thematic
segmentation, and information retrieval for the writer;
