BioNLP 2013


BioNLP 2013 is the twelfth workshop on biomedical natural
language processing being held in conjunction with the annual ACL
or NAACL meeting. BioNLP 2013 will be held at the ACL 2013
meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria, under the auspices of SIGBIOMED, the
ACL's special interest group for biomedical natural language
processing. The meeting will be held August 8-9, 2013. The second
day of the meeting will be devoted to the BioNLP Shared Task 2013
(BioNLP-ST 2013). Paper submissions for the shared task are
handled separately. Please see the BioNLP-ST 2013 web site for
further information. The meeting will feature a keynote speech by
Dr. Galia Angelova of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.


BioNLP 2013 is sponsored by the Cincinnati Children's Hospial
Medical Center Division of Biomedical Informatics.

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

Important dates

Submission deadline: Friday, April 26, 2013 Notification of
acceptance: Friday, May 24, 2013 Camera-ready copy due from
authors: Friday, June 7, 2013 Workshop: August 8-9, 2013

Submission instructions

Two types of submissions are invited: full papers and posters.
Submissions are due by 11:59 PM EST on Friday April 26, 2013.
Please submit your paper via the ACL START site for BioNLP 2013:

Full papers should not exceed eight (8) pages of text and one
page of references. These are intended to be reports of original
research. BioNLP aims to be the forum for interesting,
innovative, and promising work involving biomedicine and language
technology, whether or not yielding high performance at the
moment. This by no means precludes our interest in and preference
for mature results, strong performance, and thorough evaluation.
Both types of research and combinations thereof are encouraged.

Poster abstracts should not exceed four (4) pages including
references. Accepted poster abstracts will be published in a
separate section of the workshop proceedings. Appropriate poster
topics include preliminary results, application notes,
descriptions of work in progress, etc.

Submissions must be electronic and in PDF format, and should
follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. Please see the
conference website for details. Authors are strongly encouraged
to use the style files and formatting instructions available on
the conference website:

http://acl2013.org/site/call.html (scroll down)

Submissions need to be anonymous. Authors who cannot submit a PDF
file electronically should contact the workshop organizers well
in advance of the submission deadline.

Submissions for the BioNLP-ST 2013 shared task: Submissions for
the BioNLP-ST 2013 shared task are handled separately and should
be submitted through the web site at http://2013.bionlp-st.org/.

Dual submission policy: note that papers may NOT be submitted to
the BioNLP 2013 workshop if they are or will be concurrently
submitted to another meeting or publication.
