You are invited to participate in an international challenge to create and
train computationally intelligent algorithms on clinical free-text. The
goal is to assign all relevant codes (called ICD-9-CM codes) to short
pieces of texts. The Challenge provides an international opportunity for
research groups to compare the applicability of their natural language
processing and computationally intelligent algorithms on actual medical data. 

Challenge details and on-line registration can be found at
http://www.computationalmedicine.org/challenge/index.php.

Important Dates are:

23 Jan 2007 Registration begins

1 Feb 2007 Training data sets released

28 Feb 2007 Registration ends

1 Mar 2007 Challenge data set released

18 Mar 2007 Last day to submit results

1 Apr 2007 Challenge results announced 

Challenge organizers include Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
Division of Biomedical Informatics, the University of Cincinnati,
Department of Radiology, Ohio State University's Department of Linguistics,
Nicolaus Copernicus University, and the Center for Computational
Pharmacology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. 

The Challenge is partly funded by an Ohio Third Frontier, Wright Center of
Innovation grant. Travel awards are generously donated by Cincom Systems.
