Call for tasks

One of the goals of BioNLP-OST is to collect diverse shared task to represent diverse interests of biomedical text mining. We call for registration of shared tasks on biomedical text mining from any interested parties. If you have or plan to develop an annotated corpus to address a problem of biomedical natural language processing (NLP) or text-mining, you may want to consider registering it as a shared task through the shared task framework of BioNLP-OST Shared Tasks. The past BioNLP-ST editions has attracted dozens of participants in the long term and established a community of solution providers. By offering your task to the community, you might well find solutions to your text-mining problem, together with comparison of different approaches.

Call for participation

There are multiple shared tasks registered to BioNLP-OST. We call for participation in the tasks, and registration of your solutions to be compared with others. Particularly, you are welcome to participate in multiple tasks, and to show adaptability of your solutions.

Currently available tasks can be found at the tasks page.

Call for paper submissions

The outcomes from the shared tasks will be discussed in the BioNLP-OST 2019 workshop on November 3rd or 4th in Hong Kong, which will be collocated with EMNLP-IJCNLP 2019. All the task providers (TPs) and solution providers (SPs) are welcome to submit papers on their achievements. All the submissions will be peer-reviewed, and successful submissions will be presented for the workshop and be included in the workshop proceedings.
