Call for Papers

Over the course of the past eleven years, the ACL BioNLP workshop associated with the SIGBIOMED special interest group 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 biological and clinical NLP and exposing these researchers to the mainstream ACL research, and a venue for informing the mainstream ACL researchers about this fast-growing and important domain.

The workshop will continue presenting work on a broad and interesting range of topics in NLP. Along with accepting submissions this year on any topic of current interest in the field, we will encourage submissions on theoretical aspects of biomedical language processing.

We especially encourage submissions on:

  • Entity identification and normalization for a broad range of semantic categories
  • Species-independent gene normalization
  • Extraction of complex relations
  • Discourse analysis
  • Anaphora resolution
  • Coreference resolution
  • Text mining
  • Summarization
  • Question answering
  • Resources and novel strategies for system testing and evaluation
  • Hybrid approaches to biomedical language processing
  • Processing and annotation platforms
  • Translation of basic linguistic research to clinical care
  • Domain adaptation
  • Temporality
  • Theoretical underpinnings of biomedical natural language processing
