The Fourth International Symposium on Languages in Biology and Medicine will be held in December in Singapore. This interesting forum will address natural languages as a means of scientific and professional communication.

Cordis brought us this news in their article, “Fourth International Symposium on Languages in Biology and Medicine, Singapore.”

Natural language processing techniques are more and more being used to integrate information in biology, medicine, chemistry, pharmacology, clinical practice and related areas. Of course, other languages are used as well, like annotations, knowledge representation languages such as ontologies, sequences, graphs, images, etc.

This particular body of professionals will bring together researchers in biology, chemistry, medicine, public health and informatics to discuss and exploit cutting edge language technologies, and emphasize languages in healthcare and research. For more information about the event, check out their website.
