Call for Papers:

Workshop on Optimizing Understanding in Multilingual Hospital Encounters

In this workshop we will bring together participants who have solutions for one or more of the following problems:

- How can mutual understanding be optimized with the help of technology in hospitals where both patients and professionals have varying language skills, cultural backgrounds and cognitive capacities?
- Can domain ontologies, natural language processing tools, multilingual knowledge-based tools, multilingual terminology resources and other semantic technologies be combined in order to enhance the quality of mutual understanding between humans?

We invite you to send a short paper (4 pages, presentation time 15 minutes).
