NAACL-HLT 2010 Second Louhi Workshop on Text and Data Mining of Health

June 5 or 6, Los Angeles, CA

Submission Deadline: March 01, 2010

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 and posters:

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
Sentiment analysis
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
