BioNLP-ST 2016 Workshop

The Workshop will be held the 13th August 2016 in Humboldt University Berlin, room 2.094.

Participants were encouraged to submit a communication to the BioNLP-ST 2016 Workshop. The participation papers describe how the results were obtained: methods, technologies, and resources. The accepted papers are published in the on-line ACL proceedings of the 4th BioNLP Shared Task Workshop after selection according to the criteria of the ACL workshops.
