Workshop Series on Patent Text Mining and Semantic Technologies

PatentSemTech 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.
The first PatentSemTech workshop took place in September 2019.

Contributions to the worksohp presented 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 has been a full day workshop in conjunction with SEMANTiCS 2019 and consisted of paper presentations, industrial talks, and demos.

The workshop proceedings are published as Open Access on reposiTUm and are available here.
