BioLINK 2007

Call for Late Posters


We invite researchers working on all aspects of text-mining as they apply to bioinformatics and  bio-medicine to submit poster abstracts of up to 250 words by July 6, 2007, biolink07@cs.queensu.ca.

Notification of acceptance will be sent shortly after we receive the abstracts, on a first-come-first-serve basis; early submission is thus highly encouraged!

Suggested topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
- New validated and/or tools in current use for biomedical text mining;
- Methods, measures and corpora for testing and evaluating text mining in the biomedical domain;
- Use of text mining to assist database curation;
- Improvement in task-specific biomedical text mining by utilizing biomedical resources;
- New directions in biomedical text mining, including new applications, new resources, and the incorporation of new types of data.

The SIG provides an informal forum for presentation and discussion of current research in the field. The program will  include presentations of short papers, posters and invited talks.

The meeting will focus on recent assessments, on standards for annotation both in biological databases and in biomedical text corpora, and on new 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 look forward to seeing you in Vienna,
