We especially welcome submissions both from academia and the industry emphasizing multidisciplinary use of health documentation and the interplay between clinical professions, patient and provider, and different types of organizations. We strongly encourage submissions reporting on work for minor languages that shed light on the solving problems common to many languages lacking in available lexical resources for text processing.
Submitted papers should describe original work. Simultaneous submission to other forums (e.g. other conferences with published proceedings) is not allowed. A significant overlap in contents with previously published work should be clearly indicated to the program committee.
