Semantic Mining of Languages in Biology and Medicine

Edited by: Jong Park, Sampo Pyysalo, and Fabio Rinaldi

The Semantic Mining of Languages in Biology and Medicine thematic series focuses on representation and mining of various languages used in biology and medicine, and in associated disciplines such as chemistry, biodiversity, environmental sciences, pharmacology, etc. The scope and ideas for this series are rooted in two workshops that have been taking place from 2005. The International Symposium on Languages in Biology and Medicine (LBM) is a biennial interdisciplinary forum that brings together researchers in biology, chemistry, medicine, public health and informatics to discuss and exploit cutting edge language technologies.
