Workshop on Information Extraction & Entity Analytics on Social Media Data
9th December 2012, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India
(collocated with 24th International Conference on Computational Linguistics - COLING 2012)
The first Computational Semantics in Clinical Text (CSCT) workshop is a forum for the exploration and application of medically-oriented computational semantics. Clinical text has unique semantic and pragmatic characteristics -- prototypically describing a physician-patient encounter with entities and events in the real world. Furthermore, large-scale semantic resources (e.g., UMLS Metathesaurus) are well-developed and frequently used, text corpora are increasingly available (e.g., i2b2 NLP Challenge data), and the possibility of tangible medical benefit is of broad interest.
IJSWIS Special Issue on Web-Scale Knowledge Extraction
Guest Editors: Aditya Kalyanpur, James Fan, Chris Welty
Recently, there has been a significant amount of interest in automatically creating large-scale knowledge bases from unstructured text. Compared to traditional, manually created representations, these knowledge bases have the advantage of scale and coverage. They often contain tens of millions of propositions, represented using a variety of encodings, from simple binary assertions to more complicated frame-like structures, and are extracted by parsing and analyzing large text corpora.
