Call For Papers

***
Following the postponement of COLING 2020 (https://coling2020.org/) due to the coronavirus outbreak, we have extended the #SMM4H 2020 Workshop deadlines. We are optimistic that the postponement will allow presentations for #SMM4H 2020 to be in person in Barcelona, but we will accommodate virtual oral presentations of accepted papers by authors who are unable to travel due to the impact of coronavirus.
***

The Social Media Mining for Health Applications (#SMM4H) Workshop serves as a venue for bringing together researchers interested in automatic methods for the collection, extraction, representation, analysis, and validation of social media data (e.g., Twitter, Facebook) for health informatics. The 5th #SMM4H Workshop, co-located at COLING 2020, invites the submission of papers on original, unpublished research in all aspects at the intersection of social media mining and health. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

● Methods for the automatic detection and extraction of health-related concept mentions in social media
● Mapping of health-related mentions in social media to standardized vocabularies
● Deriving health-related trends from social media
● Information retrieval methods for obtaining relevant social media data
● Geographic or demographic data inference from social media discourse
● Virus spread monitoring using social media
● Mining health-related discussions in social media
● Drug abuse and alcoholism incidence monitoring through social media
● Disease incidence studies using social media
● Sentinel event detection using social media
● Semantic methods in social media analysis
● Classifying health-related messages in social media
● Automatic analysis of social media messages for disease surveillance and patient education
● Methods for validation of social media-derived hypotheses and datasets
