Welcome to the first International workshop on Semantics-enabled Biomedical Literature Analytics (SeBiLAn2021). The workshop takes place on April 19, 2021 and is co-located with The Web Conference (the International World Wide Web (WWW2021) Conference).

Call for Paper: the main objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers from Web search, semantic Web, and biomedical communities, to present and discuss the latest methods and results in biomedical information and knowledge representation, integration, and retrieval. Given the fact that searching and retrieving all studies that address a research question is one of the initial and main important tasks in devising a systematic review, we also aim at investigating the application of semantics and Web search in creating biomedical systematic literature review. The distinguishing feature of this workshop is its focus on leveraging semantic techniques for information retrieval from biomedical literature. This further means that it puts rigorous attention on semantic-based techniques that allow for the creation, analysis, and integration of biomedical knowledge bases, with the ultimate objective of employing such knowledge bases to improve search performance over biomedical literature.
