clinical Norwegian text. It is organized by researchers from the
Language Technology Group at the Department of Informatics, UiO and

health record information with genomics data. The workshop will
feature presentations by leading international researchers in the
field, as well as presentations on on-going work that addresses this
problem. The workshop will furthermore provide a meeting-place for
both academic and industrial partners with an interest in clinical NLP
