Second Call For Papers NEW FRONTIERS IN BIOMEDICAL TEXT MINING A Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing Session January 3-7, 2007 Grand Wailea Resort, Wailea, Maui, Hawaii http://psb.stanford.edu/cfp-nlp.html IMPORTANT DATES Paper submissions due: July 17, 2006 Notification of paper acceptance: September 6, 2006 Final paper deadline: September 25, 2006 Meeting dates: January 3-7, 2007 TOPICS Papers are invited on the topic of text data mining in its strictest sense: providing users with information not explicitly stated in text. Work submitted to this session will be required to be more ambitious with respect to either theory or reach than the entity identification, information extraction, and information retrieval projects that comprise most work in biomedical language processing. We especially solicit work in the following areas: o Question answering o Summarization o Mining data from full text including figures, tables, and images o Coreference resolution and normalization o User-driven systems, including user needs, user model, interactive systems, and user interfaces for biomedical language processing o Evaluation: test collections and evaluation methods SESSION CHAIRS o Pierre Zweigenbaum (Contact person) Inserm U729; Assistance Publique - Paris Hospitals; Inalco pz_(on)_biomath.jussieu.fr o Dina Demner-Fushman Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications U.S. National Library of Medicine ddemner_(on)_mail.nih.gov o Kevin Bretonnel Cohen Center for Computational Pharmacology kevin.cohen_(on)_gmail.com o Hong Yu College of Health Sciences University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee yuh9001_(on)_dbmi.columbia.edu SUBMISSION INFORMATION o All papers must be submitted to Russ Altman in PostScript (.ps), Adobe Acrobat (.pdf), or Microsoft Word (.doc) format. Adobe Acrobat is preferred. o Attached files should be named with the last name of the first author (e.g. altman.ps, altman.pdf, or altman.doc). Hardcopy submissions or unprocessed TeX or LaTeX files will be rejected without review. o Every paper must be accompanied by a cover letter which must include the following: - The email address of the corresponding author - The specific PSB session that the paper should be considered for - A statement that the submitted paper contains original, unpublished results, and is not currently under consideration elsewhere - A statement that all authors concur with the contents of the paper o Submitted papers are limited to twelve (12) pages in the PSB publication format. o Please format your paper according to the instructions found at http://psb.stanford.edu/psb-online/psb-submit/. o If figures cannot easily be resized and placed precisely in the text, then it should be clear that with appropriate modifications, the total manuscript length would be within the page limit. o Color pictures can be printed at the expense of the authors. The fee is $500 per page of color pictures, payable at the time of camera-ready submission. o Contact Russ Altman (russ.altman_(on)_stanford.edu) for additional information about paper submission requirements.
