Clinical TempEval 2016 follows in the footsteps of i2b2 2012 and Clinical TempEval 2015 in bringing shared tasks on timeline extraction to the clinical domain. Participating systems receive as input text such as:

"April 23, 2014: The patient did not have any postoperative bleeding so we will resume chemotherapy with a larger bolus on Friday even if there is slight nausea."

And produce as output the times, events and temporal relations extracted from the text:

Times:
* April 23, 2014: type=DATE, value=2014-04-23
* postoperative: type=PREPOSTEXP

Call for Papers
Submission Deadline: 
3 May 2015
Event Dates: 
29 Jun 2015 to 3 Jul 2015

The workshop aims to bring together researchers in bibliometrics and computational linguistics in order to study the ways bibliometrics can benefit from large-scale text analytics and sense mining of scientific papers, thus exploring the interdisciplinarity of Bibliometrics and Natural Language Processing. How can we enhance author network analysis and bibliometrics using data obtained by text analytics? What insights can NLP provide on the structure of scientific writing, on citation networks, and on in-text citation analysis?

RANLP (Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing) has established itself over the years as one of the most influential and competitive NLP conferences. The event is held biennially and grew out of the International summer schools "Contemporary topics in Computational Linguistics", which were organised for many years as training events. Selected papers from most RANLP conferences have been regularly published in a volume as part of John Benjamins’ series “Current Trends of Linguistic Research”.

Recently, there has been a significant amount of interest in automatically
creating large-scale knowledge bases (KBs) from unstructured text. The
Web-scale knowledge extraction task presents a unique set of opportunities
and challenges. The resulting knowledge bases can have the advantage of
scale and coverage. They have been enriched by linking to the Semantic Web,
in particular the growing linked open dataset (LOD). These semantic
knowledge bases have been used for a wide variety of Natural Language
Processing, Knowledge Representation, and Reasoning applications such as
