2nd Workshop on MultilingualBIO: Multilingual Biomedical Text Processing

@LREC 2020, Marseille (France), Saturday, May 16 2020 (afternoon)

http://temu.bsc.es/multilingualbio2020/

The second edition of MultilingualBIO, at the LREC 2020 Conference, is a unique opportunity to promote the development of biomedical text processing resources and components in languages beyond English, exploring the use of novel methodological advances, e.g. transfer-learning techniques such as contextual embeddings, for a diversity of tasks in the domain, including machine translation.

In this workshop, we plan to address issues, such as the following (but not restricted to):

Building of MT systems adapted to the biomedical domain.

Production of multilingual corpora in the biomedical domain.

Creation (and translation) of multilingual biomedical glossaries, ontologies and terminological resources

Application of transfer-learning techniques across tasks in the biomedical domain, such as contextual embeddings.

Extension of the coverage of the normative terminologies to languages other than English (e.g. ontologies from the Open Biomedical Ontology repository like HPO, LOINC, MEDRA, UMLS, SNOMED-CT, RxNorm etc).

Dealing with localization issues, including adaptation to local varieties of international languages (UK vs USA English, Spanish from Spain and Latin America or USA, etc.).

NLP and text mining applied to health, biomedicine and related domains.

Medical named entity recognition and grounding systems beyond English.



February 14, 2020: Paper submission deadline
