CALL FOR PAPERS / PARTICIPATION -- CLEF-ER 2013 Workshop (CLEF Conference) Valencia, 23-26 Sep 2013 CLEF-ER 2013: Named Entity Recognition (NER) in parallel multilingual biomedical corpora (aiming for terminology translation) apologies for crossposting CALL FOR PAPERS -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We are interested in papers describing challenge systems or related research and position papers, tackling questions like: - Can we build multilingual biomedical terminologies from parallel biomedical corpora? - How do we exploit machine translation methods to identify correspondences in parallel corpora? - Do we encounter the same semantic representation in different languages? - Can we make use of crowd-sourcing solutions to produce comprehensive terminological resources? Please submit us an extended abstract (normally 2 pages) via EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=clefer2013 Accepted abstracts will become part of the CLEF proceedings. The best contribution wins a prize, which is the waiving of publication costs in an open access journal! CALL FOR CHALLENGE PARTICIPATION -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Objectives: Multilingual identification of mentions of named entities (attribution of CUIs) in corpora, where each corpus is either in English, French, German, Spanish, and Dutch. Currently patent texts, titles of Medline abstracts and EMEA documents serve as parallel corpora. The mention annotations will be evaluated as part of the challenge and, in addition, the mention annotations will be analysed to contribute to an augmented biomedical terminological resource. Task: Participants produce mention annotations in a multilingual document where the annotations make explicit reference to entities, which are specified through a Concept Unique Identifier (CUI, from the UMLS). Challenge participants should at least contribute one non-English annotated corpus and have to register at the submission site (http://www.clefer.org/access-content). A number of resources are available too: (1) a terminological resource (TR) containing English and non-English concepts in combination with their CUIs, (2) a selection of corpora in English, where the entity mentions have been annotated automatically with their CUIs, and (3) a selection of corpora in different languages other than English (i.e., de, fr, sp, nl) that have to be annotated with entity mentions and their CUIs. Note: Each non-English corpus has a parallel English corpus. Not all languages (de, fr, sp, nl) are available for each corpus. Parallel corpora offer the opportunity to use machine-translation or bilingual term identification methods. The results will be presented on the CLEF-ER workshop, which is part of the CLEF 2013 Conference, 23-26 September in Valencia, Spain. The challenge is sponsored by the EU project "Mantra".
