HealTAC 2019 – save the date!

April 24, 2019 - April 25, 2019

Following the exciting HealTAC 2018, the UK healthcare text analytics network (Healtex) is organising the second conference in the series next April in Cardiff, Wales.

Healthcare narratives recorded in documents such as encounter notes, discharge letters, nurse handover notes, imaging/pathology reports, patient-generated data posts in surveys and social media, etc. represent a key communication stream that contains the majority of actionable and contextualised information. Despite them being increasingly available in a digital form, they are yet to be routinely analysed on a large scale. The conference aims to bring the academic, healthcare, industrial and patient communities together to explore the current state of the art and share best practice, key results and common challenges.

The first (formal) call for contributions will follow shortly, inviting full and short papers, posters, demos and special sessions. The event will also provide a forum for PhD students and industrial partners to present their work. The conference will be subsidised by Healtex – so please start preparing you contributions! Here are the key dates:

– Call for contributions: November 2nd, 2018
– Deadline for papers, posters, demos, special sessions: January 21th, 2019
– Notification of acceptance: February 18th, 2019
– Conference: April 24th and 25th, 2019

Please feel free to forward to your colleagues and collaborators.
