Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2008

Meeting Description:

We invite papers reporting on biomedical resources specifically used to facilitate biomedical text mining and the process of designing, building, updating, delivering, evaluating and disseminating them. A focus of the workshop is on lexical and knowledge repositories (e.g. controlled vocabularies, terminologies, ontologies, factual databases) and annotated corpora. Another focus is on design guidelines, standards for building resources, storage and exchange format, interoperability of resources and last, on exploring new directions for their dissemination.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Building biomedical resources: controlled vocabularies, terminologies, ontologies, corpora
- Guidelines and annotation schemas, challenges, interoperability
- Building task-specific resources
- Reengineering existing biomedical or general language resources
- Augmentation of resources with biomedical features
- Update and evolution of resources
- Lightly annotated and noisy resources
- Tools for exploration of resources
- Data exchange formats
- Standards for building resources
- Documenting and disseminating resources
- Evaluation of resources
