In addition to standardized varieties of Bahasa Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia, papers are particularly welcome dealing with non-canonical isolects such as regional dialects and contact varieties, as well as closely related Malayic languages. Papers may be in any of the subfields of linguistics, and may represent variegated approaches and diverse theoretical persuasions. Presentations at ISMIL are delivered in English.

Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to submit a one-page electronic abstract (preferably in pdf format) to Uri Tadmor at the following address:

Subject: Second International Symposium on Semantic Mining in Biomedicine

Full Title: Second International Symposium on Semantic Mining in Biomedicine

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2006

Meeting Description:

The second symposium on Semantic Mining in Biomedicine is organised by the EU Network of Excellence Semantic Mining
and the Jena University Language and Information Engineering Laboratory. The aim of this symposium is to bring together the communities of molecular biology and genomics, chemo-informatics and pharma-informatics, text and data mining for biomedicine, medical informatics, and biological ontology design and engineering.

The vast amount of biological and biomedical data found in scientific literature is a challenge for the scientist working in these rapidly growing areas. In order to facilitate knowledge discovery in biomedicine there is a need for approaches which harvest and integrate information from text, biological databases, ontologies and terminological resources. Semantic mining relies on the existence and sharing of large scale terminological and ontological resources such as Gene Ontology, Swiss-Prot, UMLS, Mesh etc. which are then combined with text mining and NLP techniques. Equally, the existence of semantically annotated corpora for testing and training are of paramount importance for efficient semantic mining based on NLP techniques.

Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
- Text mining
- Information extraction
- Information retrieval
- Ontology design
- Terminology processing
- Evaluation techniques and standards
- Integration of text and data mining
- Annotation schemes for biomedical text mining
- Text mining for ontology and terminology building
