The LINGUIST List is dedicated to providing information on language and language analysis, and to providing the discipline of linguistics with the infrastructure necessary to function in the digital world. LINGUIST is a free resource, run by linguistics students and faculty, and supported by your donations. Please support LINGUIST List during the 2017 Fund Drive.

|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.
