ISMB BioLINK SIG, 2005
The BioLINK SIG will
take place on June 24, 2005, from 8:30am-6:00pm.
The meeting will focus on resources and tools for biomedical text mining. It will be interdisciplinary in nature, and bring researchers applying natural language processing, text mining, information extraction and retrieval in the biomedical domain, together with scientists from bioinformatics and biology.
We solicit submissions from researchers working on all aspects of text-mining as they apply to bioinformatics and bio-medicine.
include (but are not limited to) the following:
The SIG provides an informal forum for presentation and discussion of current research in the field. The program will include presentations of full-length as well as of short papers, posters and invited talks.
We are inviting submission in three categories:
1) full papers (6-8 pages)
2) short papers (2-4 pages)
3) poster abstracts (up to 1 page).
Submissions, in PDF or MS word, should be sent, by the dates specified below, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Authors should indicate the category for which their paper is to be considered (full paper, short paper or poster), and whether they would like their work to be considered for an oral presentation.
We have proposed to make this a joint workshop with the Annual Association of Computational Linguistics (ACL) Meeting, to be held in Ann Arbor, June 25-30. The workshop's date and place will remain unchanged (June 24, at ISMB in Detroit). If ACL accepts the proposal, we will announce this as soon as we are notified in late February. In anticipation of this, we have set up the reviewing process and paper deadlines to accommodate schedules from both conferences.
March 11: Full
papers (6-8 pages) due
