Meeting Description:

NAACL-HLT 2010 Second Louhi Workshop on Text and Data Mining of Health Documents
June 5 or 6, Los Angeles, CA

The Second Louhi one-day workshop on Text and Data Mining of Health
Documents is a multidisciplinary international workshop, bringing together
researchers performing research on health documents. Health documents encompass,
but are not limited to, electronic patient records, clinical documentation,
discharge letters, care guidelines, scientific text and data related to
biohealth, etc. The Second Louhi conference follows Louhi'08, the First
conference on Text and Data Mining of Clinical Documents, Turku, Finland, 2008

Call for Papers

Submission Deadline: March 01, 2010

Louhi'10 is calling for papers and posters presenting original research, case
studies or work in progress related to the following areas:

Clinical Documentation, including topics such as
- Structured and narrative documentation
- Integrating data from various sources (information fusion)
- Clinical classifications (e.g., diagnostic classifications such as ICD-10 and
nursing intensity scores)
- Language engineering for clinical content
- Documentation and decision making practices
- Hospital information systems focused mainly on text processing
- Anonymisation / de-identification of clinical texts

Formal Approaches and Methods of Text and Data Mining of Clinical Documents,
including topics such as
- Classification and clustering
- Ranking and preference learning
- Information retrieval and extraction
- Summarization
- Sentiment analysis
- Visualization
- Evaluation and Gold Standards

Practical Cases of Text and Data Mining of Clinical Documents

We welcome submissions on topics related to text and data mining of health
documents, particularly emphasizing multidisciplinary aspects of health
documentation and the interplay between nursing and medical sciences,
information systems, computational linguistics and computer science. We also
encourage submissions reporting work on minor languages, representing the
diverse challenges that characteristics of different languages pose to common tasks.

Submitted papers should describe original work. Simultaneous submission
to other forums (e.g. other conferences with published proceedings) is not
allowed. A significant overlap in contents with previously published work should
be clearly indicated to the program committee.

The maximum length for a paper is six pages. Please, use the ACL template for
your paper and indicate in the submission system whether it is a research, case
study or work in progress paper.

The maximum length for a paper presented as a poster is two pages. Please, use
the ACL template for your poster and indicate in the submission system whether
it is a research, case study or work in progress poster.

Louhi'10 will only accept electronic submission via its START submission system.
The submissions should be in PDF format and anonymised for review. Before
submission, carefully consider our submission checklist.

All submissions are double-blind peer reviewed by three program committee
members. For double-blind peer review, the initial manuscript submission should
not include acknowledgments, authors' names or their affiliations. In addition,
extensive referring to own previous work should be avoided and when referring to
own previous the authors should do it in third person. The submissions will be
judged on originality, relevance, technical quality and presentation.

Papers will be presented by the authors in a regular workshop session
and posters by the authors in a poster session. All accepted papers will
be published in the workshop proceedings.

Selected papers will be invited to be published in a special journal issue.

Selected papers from Louhi'08 were published in International Journal of Medical
Informatics, Volume 78, Issue 12, Pages 785-850 (December
2009) Mining of Clinical and Biomedical Text and Data, Special Issue
Edited by Helena Karsten, Barbro Back, Sanna Salanterä, Tapio Salakoski
