Paper submissions will be handled through EasyChair. Follow this link to the conference page in EasyChair in order to submit your contribution. If you do not have an EasyChair account you will need to create it by signing-up.
Full papers, short papers and system papers are invited on all topics of the conference and related fields relevant to the conference scope.
Submissions should follow the ACL instructions for authors, with a minimum of five (5) pages and a maximal limit of eight (8) pages (plus one optional page for references). The recommended length for system papers and short submissions is four (4) pages (plus one optional page for references). Manuscripts will be submitted electronically as PDF files. Reviewing will be double-blind, and submissions should therefore NOT contain author names or other obviously identifying information.
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings that will be available online, e.g., in CEUR-WS. We invite three categories of papers: full research papers, short papers and system papers. Research papers will be given an oral presentation, short papers a poster presentation, and systems papers will be presented in systems demonstration sessions. System papers should describe an implemented system related to a topic of interest that the authors will demonstrate live during the symposium. The final modality of presentation will be decided by the organizing committee.
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Biomedical Semantics (JBMS), an open-access journal published by BioMed Central (BMC).
