Meeting Description:

5th International Symposium on Semantic Mining in Biomedicine
http://www.smbm.eu/
September 3-4, 2012
Institute of Computational Linguistics, University of Zurich, Switzerland

SMBM 2012 aims to bring together researchers from text and data mining in biomedicine, medical, bio- and chemoinformatics, and researchers active in biomedical ontology design and engineering and the Semantic Web. The combined research helps to promote full integration of data and factual content from large text collections, biological databases, ontological and terminological resources and from the Web.

However, many challenges have yet to be met to achieve this ambitious goal. Significant advances have been made and many working systems for tasks ranging from semantics driven literature analysis to cross-resource data analysis and open linked data on the web have been suggested and deployed. Where do we stand and how do we advance toward fully integrated systems combining the different solutions and data sources?

SMBM 2012 is the follow-up to the following very successful two series: SMBM 2005 (EBI, U.K.), SMBM 2006 (University of Jena, Germany), SMBM 2008 (University of Turku, Finland) and SMBM 2010 (EBI, U.K). A parallel event (LBM: The International Symposium on Languages in Biology and Medicine) has been held in 2005 (KAIST, Daejeon, South Korea), 2007 (Matrix, Biopolis, Singapore), 2009 (Jeju Island, South Korea) and 2011 (NTU, Singapore).

SMBM 2012 aims to bring together researchers from text and data mining in biomedicine, medical, bio- and chemoinformatics, and researchers from biomedical ontology design and engineering. SMBM 2012 is the follow-up event of SMBM 2005 (EBI, U.K.), SMBM 2006 (University of Jena, Germany), SMBM 2008 (University of Turku, Finland), SMBM 2010 (EBI, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK).

A parallel event (LBM: The International Symposium on Languages in Biology and Medicine) has been held in 2005 (KAIST, Daejeon, South Korea), 2007 (Matrix, Biopolis, Singapore) and 2009 (Jeju Island, South Korea).

The conference will feature (all events included in the registration fee):

Keynote: Olivier Bodenreider (NLM)
Keynote: Therese Vachon (Novartis)
