Call for Papers

Over the course of the past nine years, the ACL BioNLP workshop has established itself as the primary venue for presenting foundational research in language processing for the biological and medical domains. The workshop serves as both a venue for bringing together researchers in bio- and clinical NLP, and a venue for informing mainstream ACL researchers about this fast-growing and important domain. This year will be the tenth year that the workshop has been held in association with the annual ACL or NAACL meeting and the third year that the workshop is associated with the new SIGBIOMED special interest group. in accordance with the ACL SIGBIOMED ( tradition of presenting work on a broad range of topics, we invite submissions on any topic of current interest in the field of Biomedical Natural Language Processing. Topics especially encouraged include:

  • Implemented and integrated BioNLP systems
  • Entity identification and normalization for a broad range of semantic categories
  • Extraction of complex relations
  • Discourse analysis
  • Anaphora and coreference resolution
  • Text mining
  • Summarization
  • Translation of clinical data for patients
  • Question Answering
  • Resources and novel strategies for system testing and evaluation
  • Computational analysis of linguistic correlates of biomedical conditions
