Submission details

Papers are invited in all of the areas outlined in the Topics of interest, particularly emphasizing multidisciplinary aspects of processing such data and the interplay between clinical/nursing/medical sciences, language technology, computational linguistics, NLP, and computer science. We welcome also papers discussing problems derived from the design of relevant data samples and populations, but also the exploitation of results and outcomes as well as legal and ethical questions on how to deal with such data and make it available. Furthermore, the workshop solicits papers describing original research. Papers may preferably describe substantial and completed work, but may also focus on a contribution, a negative result, an interesting application nugget, a software package, a small, focused contribution or work in progress. The workshop will act as a stimulus for the discussion of several ongoing research questions driving current and future research and challenges by bringing together researchers from various research communities.

RaPID-2024 will be held on Tuesday the 21st of May 2024. The oral presentations will be allocated 10-20 minutes (please see the program for details), possibly, followed by a common poster session (depending on the volume of received submissions). Submitted papers must be formatted according to the camera-ready style for LREC-COLING 2024 (style guidelines, updated templates etc. for the camera-ready papers) provided here: LREC's main conference submission templates [Author's Kit]) and submitted electronically in PDF format through the SOFTCONF - conference manager page. Papers should be 4-8 pages of content. Additional, unlimited pages containing the list of references and appendices are allowed. Please do not include page numbers in your article. We will strive to have all submissions reviewed by at least three, or more, members of the program committee. Moreover, depending on the volume of contributions, papers that describe systems or tools will be invited to give a demo of their system during a poster session.
