Meeting Description:

The 3rd Louhi one-day workshop is a multidisciplinary international workshop, bringing together researchers studying syntactic, semantic and pragmatic aspects of healthcare documents. Healthcare documents encompass, but are not limited to, electronic patient records, clinical documentation, discharge letters, care guidelines, scientific texts and other textual data related to biomedicine and healthcare. The 3rd Louhi Workshop follows Louhi’08, the 1st conference on Text and Data Mining of Health Documents in Turku, Finland, 2008, and Louhi '10 in Los Angeles, collocated with 11th NAACL conference. The workshop aims to gather representatives from clinical practice, research and IT industry.

Call for Papers:

Louhi 2011 is calling for papers presenting original research, case studies or work-in-progress related to the following areas:

Processing of clinical documents, including topics such as:

- Classification and analysis of text content
- Mixed source documents, and combinations of text and encoded/structured information
- Discourse, dialogue, and pragmatics
- Information extraction
- Removal of sensitive and identifying information
- Information retrieval
- Knowledge acquisition
- Language generation
- Language resources, evaluation methods and metrics, science of annotation
- Use of lexical, ontological, semantic resources
- Machine translation
- Statistical and symbolic machine learning methods
- Summarization
- Sentiment analysis
- Automated coding and structuring
- Text mining
- Interactive and dialogue-based documentation and text production
- Referent tracking and management
- Textual entailment and paraphrasing
- Topic and text classification
- Word sense disambiguation

Intelligent re-use of clinical documentation, including:

- Clinical decision making and guidelines based on clinical documentation
- Automated reasoning and meta-reasoning using clinical documentation
- Use of clinical documentation within clinical trials, eScience; research-support information systems, workflow support
- Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Human-Computer Interaction, as well as Information Visualization based on clinical documentation and EHR content
- Collaborative exchange of textual EHR information between provider and patient; between providers in different organisations; between different professions
- Personalized medicine based on clinical documentation

Experience reports from practical applications of:

- Text technology in clinical documentation systems
- Data mining in clinical documentation systems

We especially welcome submissions both from academia and the industry emphasizing multidisciplinary use of health documentation and the interplay between clinical professions, patient and provider, and different types of organizations. We strongly encourage submissions reporting on work for minor languages that shed light on the solving problems common to many languages lacking in available lexical resources for text processing.

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.

Important Dates:

Submission:21 Apr 2011
Notification:15 May 2011
Camera-ready:8 Jun 2011
Workshop:6 Jul 2011
