Veterinary Text Mining Workshop

This workshop has two aims: to present the state of the art in processing free-text in veterinary electronic health records, and to establish a special interest group that will work together on improving the capabilities for making sense of veterinary free-text. The event follows the discussions at the Farr@Vet inaugural meeting (April 2016).

The event, to be held in Nottingham, is co-organised by the Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine @ Nottingham, SAVSNET and Healtex.
