PatentSemTech 2019

1st Workshop on Patent Text Mining and Semantic Technologies


The PatentSemTech2019 workshop, aims to establish a long-term collaboration and a two-way communication channel between the IP industry and academia from relevant fields such as natural-language processing (NLP), text and data mining (TDM) and semantic technologies (ST) in order to explore and transfer new knowledge, methods and technologies for the benefit of industrial applications as well as support research in applied sciences for the IP and neighbouring domains.

We invite contributions that show relevant use cases for patent text mining and analytics as well as new means for bootstrapping training data generation, e.g. for labelling domain-specific datasets from the IP domain.

PatentSemTech2019 is a full day workshop in conjunction with SEMANTiCS 2019 consisting of paper presentations, industrial talks, poster & demos (see CFP) and an annotation session for experts.


Workshop Location!

The workshop takes place at Leibniz-Institut für Informationsinfrastruktur - FIZ Karlsruhe,
Hermann-von-Helmholtz-Platz 1, 76344 Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen in room Room 102 Humboldt.
