After the summer, we (Franki and me) will be attending CIKM 2008 (in Napa Valley, California) and IDEAL 2008 (in Daejeon, Corea) presenting different parts of the work we are doing in SINAMED and ISIS projects.

Our ongoing research in this projects "is mainly focused on using biomedical concepts for cross-lingual text classification. In this context the use of concepts instead of bag of words representation allows us to face text classification tasks abstracting from the language". For cross-lingual text tasks, "we evaluate the possibility of combining automatic translation techniques with the use of biomedical ontologies to produce an English text that can be processed by MMTx", saving the efforts of developing a Spanish MetaMap.

I hope see you some of you in CIKM or IDEAL :)
