Dear Colleagues,

Please submit a 6-page conference-paper to Louhi2013 by 15 October.

Louhi2013<> is
the 4th International Workshop on Health Document Text Mining and
Information Analysis. Inspired by CLEF2012 and linked with
CLEFeHealth2012, the focus of this fourth Louhi workshop is on

 1. syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic analysis of health documents,

 2. mono- and multilingual methods, applications, and resources for
    their automated processing and intelligent re-use,

 3. cross-language evaluation health documentation and their processing
     methods, applications, and resources, and

 4. methods, resources, and infrastructure for this cross-language

The two-day workshop brings together academia, industry, healthcare
providers and policy makers interested in natural-language processing of
written and spoken health communication. The programme consists of
invited talks, scientific presentations and industry
demonstrations. Keynotes include:

 * Prof Pierre Zweigenbaum (, LIMSI-CNRS and
   ERTIM-INALCO, France: medical language processing, specialised
   language of medical domain, and aspects of multilingualism

 * Prof Jon Patrick (,
   University of Sydney, School of Information Technologies and Health
   Language Laboratories, Australia: Industrial Strength Language
   Engineering Methods - Automatic Extraction of Cancer Registry Content
   from Radiology Reports

Special issue will be published in the Artificial Intelligence in

NICTA organises the workshop in Sydney, NSW, Australia on 11-12 February
2013 in collaboration with the Australian Health Informatics Summer
School (Sydney, NSW, Australia; 4-8 February 2013). You may also be
interested in Techfest2013 - a free event taking place on 13 February
2013 in Canberra, the nation's capital, located only a pretty bus
trip<> from Sydney.

Please distribute the message among your colleagues.
