Meeting URL: http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2008/

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Meeting Description:

Papers presented will be 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.
