Although researchers in these related fields have started to realize the inherent inter-relationships among their goals, interdisciplinary research and development remain to be materialized to bear real fruits. The aims of this workshop were to bring together prominent researchers in related fields, understand each others' achievements, identify mutual interests and formulate joint research programs.
We invited researchers in Information Technology who had been successfully applying their research results to life science and those in biomedical fields who have been developing new Information-based approaches in biomedical fields. We are pleased to say that the aim of the workshop, i.e. bringing together researchers from different areas allowing exchange of ideas was successfully achieved and that we enjoyed alive and constructive discussion at the workshop.
On behalf of the GENIA project and the NaCTeM, we would like to express our gratitude to all the participants and invited speakers.
We will host more workshops in the near future, focusing on aspects like use of ontologies for text mining, interoperability of text mining tools and resources, semantic mining and annotation, integration of text and data mining, etc.
