Title: “Semantic Enrichment of Scientific Literature”

PurposeSemantic enrichment is the integration of metadata into text. It allows facts within text to be annotated and linked to electronic resources such as the biological databases maintained by the EMBL-EBI and its collaborators. This makes free text better suited for automatic exploitation in text mining, information retrieval and presentation.
We cordially invite key players in the text-mining field, representatives from STM publishing, representatives from other industries who share an interest in making the most of semantic enrichment, researchers and curators to exchange their views on automatic annotation of scientific text and to better understand their requirements at a one-day mini-symposium at the EBI on February 20th as part of the Industry Programme allowing presentations from invited speakers and discussions.
The meeting will be used to exchange views on automatic annotation of scientific text and to help us understand the requirements of curators, researchers, authors, publishers and other interested fields.
