LOUHI 2021

The 12th International Workshop on Health Text Mining and Information Analysis

EACL 2021 Workshop – The 12th International Workshop on Health Text Mining and Information Analysis (LOUHI 2021)

Location: EACL 2021, (April 19, 2021)

** Background **

The 12th International Workshop on Health Text Mining and Information Analysis provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers interested in automated processing of health documents. Health documents encompass textual content of electronic health records, clinical guidelines, spontaneous reports for pharmacovigilance, biomedical literature, health forums/blogs or any other type of health-related documents.
The LOUHI workshop series fosters interactions between the Computational Linguistics, Medical Informatics and Artificial Intelligence communities. It started in 2008 in Turku, Finland and has been organized 8 times: LOUHI 2010 was co-located with NAACL in Los Angeles, CA; LOUHI 2011 was co-located with Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME) in Bled, Slovenia; LOUHI 2013 was held in Sydney, Australia during NICTA Techfest; LOUHI 2014 was co-located with EACL in Gothenburg, Sweden; LOUHI 2015 was co-located with EMNLP in Lisbon, Portugal; LOUHI 2016 was co-located with EMNLP in Austin, Texas; LOUHI 2017 was held in Sydney, Australia; LOUHI 2018 was co-located with EMNLP in Brussels, Belgium; LOUHI 2019 was co-located with EMNLP-IJCNLP in Hong Kong; and LOUHI 2020 was co-located with EMNLP.

** Invited Speaker **

Karin Verspoor, RMIT University (Australia)
Title: Knowledge flows in COVID-19 and the role of NLP

Abstract: The need for a global knowledge ecosystem supporting rapid learning from clinical practice has become more apparent than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this talk, I will examine the knowledge ecosystem of COVID-19, and will specifically consider the role of natural language processing in supporting dissemination of information and for informing public health response. I will review some of the key work presented in the NLP for COVID-19 workshops organised at ACL2020 and EMNLP2020, and introduce my team’s work on supporting COVID-19 information finding in the COVID-SEE tool.
