*** FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS ***

EACL 2014 Workshop - The Fifth International Workshop on Health Text
Mining and Information Analysis (Louhi 2014)
http://dsv.su.se/louhi2014

Location: EACL 2014, in Gothenburg, Sweden (April 27, 2014)

Submission deadline: January 23, 2014

** Call for Papers **

The Fifth International Workshop on Health Text Mining and Information
Analysis provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers interested in
automated processing of health documents. Health documents encompass
electronic health records, clinical guidelines, spontaneous reports for
pharmacovigilance, biomedical literature, health forums/blogs or any other
type of health-related documents. The Louhi workshop series started in 2008
in Turku, Finland and has previously been organized four times. Louhi 2010
was co-located with NAACL in Los Angeles and Louhi 2011 with Artificial
Intelligence in Medicine (AIME) in Bled, Slovenia. The latest edition, Louhi
2013, was held in Sydney.

Louhi 2014 is soliciting long and short papers describing original research.
Long papers (8 pages excluding references) must describe substantial and
completed work. Short papers (4 pages excluding references) typically
describe a focused contribution, a negative result, a software package or work
in progress. The areas include, but are not limited to, the following language
processing techniques and related areas:

* Techniques supporting information extraction, e.g. named entity
recognition, negation and uncertainty detection
* Classification and text mining applications (e.g. diagnostic classifications
such as ICD-10 and nursing intensity scores) and problems (e.g. handling of
unbalanced data sets)
* Text representation, including dealing with data sparsity and dimensionality
issues
* Domain adaptation, e.g. adaptation of standard NLP tools (incl. tokenizers,
PoS-taggers, etc) to the medical domain
* Information fusion, i.e. integrating data from various sources, e.g.
structured and narrative documentation
* Unsupervised methods, including distributional semantics
* Evaluation, gold/reference standard construction and annotation
* Syntactic, semantic and pragmatic analysis of health documents
* Anonymization / de-identification of health records and ethics
* Supporting the development of medical terminologies and ontologies
* Individualization of content, consumer health vocabularies, summarization
and simplification of text
* NLP for supporting documentation and decision making practices
* Predictive modeling of adverse events, e.g. adverse drug events and hospital
acquired infections

We welcome submissions on topics related to text mining of health
documents, particularly emphasizing multidisciplinary aspects of health
documentation and the interplay between nursing and medical sciences,
information systems, computational linguistics and computer science. We also
encourage submissions reporting on work for minor languages, representing
the diverse challenge that traits in different languages pose to common tasks.

** Important Dates **

Long and short paper submission deadline: 23 January 2014
Notification to authors: 20 February 2014
Paper camera-ready due: 3 March 2014
Workshop: 27 April 2014

** Submission Instructions **

For Louhi 2014, the following two types of submissions will be accepted: long
papers (8 pages excluding references) and short papers (4 pages excluding
references).

Submissions go through a rigorous, double-blind review process, where each
submission is reviewed by three program committee members. The initial
manuscript submission should therefore not include acknowledgments,
authors' names or affiliations. Extensive referring to own previous work
should also be avoided. The submissions will be judged on originality,
relevance, technical quality and presentation.

Accepted papers will be presented by the authors in a regular workshop
session. All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
Similar to previous Louhi workshops, authors of selected papers will be
offered the possibility to submit extended papers for potential publication in
a special issue of a high-impact journal, e.g. Artificial Intelligence in Medicine
as for Louhi 2013.

Louhi 2014 will only accept electronic submission via its START submission
system (a link will soon appear on the workshop Web page). The submissions
should be in PDF format and anonymized for review. All submissions must
follow the EACL 2014 formatting requirements (available on the EACL 2014
website). We strongly advise the use of the Word or LaTeX template files
provided by EACL 2014: http://www.eacl2014.org/files/eacl-2014-styles.zip

Submitted papers should describe original work. Simultaneous submission to
other forums (e.g. other conferences with published proceedings) is not
allowed. A significant overlap in content with previously published work
should be clearly indicated to the program committee.

** Invited Speaker **

Sophia Ananiadou, professor in the School of Computer Science at the
University of Manchester and director of the National Centre for Text Mining
(NaCTeM).

** Organizers **

Louhi 2014 is organized by the Clinical Text Mining Group at the Department
of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV) at Stockholm University.

Chair: Sumithra Velupillai
Program Co-chairs: Hercules Dalianis, Maria Kvist and Martin Duneld
Publication Chair: Martin Duneld
Local Organization Chairs: Maria Skeppstedt and Aron Henriksson
