List of Topics
The main objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers from
Web search, semantic Web, and biomedical communities, to present and
discuss the latest methods and results in biomedical information and
knowledge representation, integration, and retrieval. Given the fact that
searching and retrieving all studies that address a research question is
one of the initial and main important tasks in devising a systematic
review, we also aim at investigating the application of semantics and Web
search in creating biomedical systematic literature review. The
distinguishing feature of this workshop is its focus on leveraging semantic
techniques for information retrieval from biomedical literature. This
further means that it puts rigorous attention on semantic-based techniques
that allow for the creation, analysis, and integration of biomedical
knowledge bases, with the ultimate objective of employing such knowledge
bases to improve search performance over biomedical literature.

   - knowledge representation and semantics for biomedical literature
   - Knowledge graphs in biomedical search
   - Biomedical knowledge source integration
   - Biomedical knowledge graph construction and embedding
   - Biomedical ontologies in search
   - Semantic features in biomedical literature classification and ranking
   - Learning to rank biomedical literature
   - Semantics and Search for biomedical knowledge synthesis and systematic
   literature review
   - Entity linking and semantic annotation in biomedical texts
   - Datasets, metrics, and evaluation
   - Knowledge discovery / synthesis from literature
   - Biomedical literature retrieval for the systematic review process
   - Search and semantics of the publication process (reviewing,quality
   assurance, discovering (self ) plagiarism)
   - Knowledge integration from multilingual Biomedical literature
   - Biomedical literature datasets, such as CORD-19 and evaluation methods
   - Search and semantic tools for knowledge synthesis, and systematic
