The 3rd “curated power of MEdical DAta (MEDA)” is a workshop of JCDL (https://2020.jcdl.org/AcceptedWorkshops.html).
In an era when massive amounts of medical data became available, researchers working in biological, biomedical and clinical domains have increasingly started to require the help of language engineers to process large quantities of biomedical and molecular biology literature (such as PubMed), patient data or health records. Linking the contents of these documents to each other, as well as to specialized ontologies, could enable access to and discovery of structured clinical information and foster a major leap in natural language processing and health research.
MEDA-2020 aims to gather innovative approaches for the exploitation of biomedical data using semantic web technologies and linked data by bringing together practitioners, researchers, and scholars to share examples, use cases, theories and analysis of biomedical data. The main objective of this second edition workshop is to consolidate an internationally appreciated forum for scientific research in BioMed, with emphasis on crowdsourcing, semantic web, knowledge integration and data linking.
The topics of MEDA include the following:
- Natural language processing/ text mining
- Data science/applied mathematics
- NLP-based knowledge discovery for drug
- Genomic assays
We invite submissions of papers (of up to 8 pages), representing original, previously unpublished research, innovative approaches and resource types, use cases or in-depth discussions. Submissions must use the PDF file format and must adopt the style of the ACM Proceedings. Submissions that exceed the page limit will be rejected without review.
All submissions must be submitted online through the EasyChair system following the submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=meda2020.
