Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: The first Computational Semantics in Clinical Text (CSCT) workshop is a forum for the exploration and application of medically-oriented computational semantics. Clinical text has unique semantic and pragmatic characteristics - prototypically describing a physician-patient encounter with entities and events in the real world. Furthermore, large-scale semantic resources (e.g., UMLS Metathesaurus) are well-developed and frequently used, text corpora are increasingly available (e.g., i2b2 NLP Challenge data), and the possibility of tangible medical benefit is of broad interest. These characteristics make the medical domain an ideal proving ground for computational semantics theory and practice.

We invite you to join us on March 19, 2013 (Tuesday) before IWCS 2013 at the University of Potsdam in Germany.
