CLEFeHealth2012 and Louhi2013 Workshops: call for short papers (by May 31) and papers (by Oct 15)

Dear Colleagues,

CLEFeHealth 2012 ( is the CLEF2012 workshop on cross-language evaluation of methods, applications, and resources for eHealth document analysis with a focus on written and spoken natural-language processing. NICTA, National ICT Australia organises it in Rome, Italy on 17-20 September 2012. Remember to check the other CLEF workshops/labs too, in particular Image CLEF on medical image processing:

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 syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic analysis of health documents; mono- and multilingual methods, applications, and resources for their automated processing and intelligent re-use; cross-language evaluation health documentation and their processing methods, applications, and resources; and methods, resources, and infrastructure for this cross-language evaluation. 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).

Note that the workshops are connected; we encourage submitting first an extended abstract to CLEFeHealth2012 and then a paper to Louhi2013. CLEFeHealth2012 provides mentoring for students who wish to follow this guideline.

Please find more information about the workshops from the attached flyers and distribute the message among your colleagues.
