HealTAC 2020 – save the date
April 22, 2020 - April 24, 2020
We are delighted to announce the 3rd UK healthcare text analytics conference HealTAC 2020 in London. The conference will take place at the King’s College from 22nd to 24th April 2020, with the first day focused on a special event about ‘Online Life and Mental Wellbeing’ (an interactive workshop with invited speakers and themed discussion sessions).
Please save the date in your calendars.
HealTAC is being established as a forum for the academic, clinical, industrial and patient communities to discuss the current state of the art in processing healthcare free text and share experience, results and challenges. The programme will include keynote talks, research papers, discussion panels, an industry forum, software demos, a PhD forum and poster sessions.
Healthcare narrative (such as clinical notes, discharge letters, nurse handover notes, imaging reports, patients posts on social media or feedback comments, etc.) has been used as a key communication stream that contains the majority of actionable and contextualised data, but which – despite being increasingly available in a digital form – is not routinely analysed, and is rarely integrated with other healthcare data on a large-scale. HealTAC is a multi-disciplinary event, focusing on many aspects of free-text healthcare data: from technical infrastructures and language processing challenges, to interpretability and governance, to the usability and evaluation.
Keynotes will be delivered by Prof Patrich Ruch (HEG / HESSO Geneva and SIB) and Prof Kalina Bontcheva (University of Sheffield). Keep an eye on the submission dates – late in 2019. More details are available at http://healtex.org/healtac-2020/.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in London in April! Meanwhile, follow us on #HEALTAC2020.
