Sound Great!
My group will be of great interest to know the specific
description of the task.

> The BioCreative meetings are the premier venue for comparing the 
> performance
> of text mining tools on tasks that are of interest to biologists and
> bioinformaticians, particularly those working in the areas of genomics,
> proteomics and biological database curation (see Genome Biology 
> BioCreative
> special issue, 2008).  Funded by the National Science Foundation,
> BioCreative III will be held on September 13-15, 2010 in the Washington, 
> DC
> area. Along with gene normalization and information extraction tasks,
> BioCreative III will include a demonstration task on interactive 
> annotation
> in which curators will be teamed with text mining groups to perform
> annotation tasks.  The goal is to gather requirements, discuss data 
> exchange
> standards, and create a framework for an interactive annotation evaluation
> for BioCreative IV (to be held in 2012).

> We are now gauging interest in taking part in this project among database
> curators, bioinformaticians and text mining groups.  For this initial 
> trial
> of an interactive task in biomedical text mining, groups will have the
> opportunity to demonstrate their own interfaces and have others try them
> out.  Minimum requirements will be distributed along with a formal
> definition of the task, which will be focused on gene and protein
> normalization, since this is an annotation task that cuts across many
> communities.

> Text mining and curation groups that are already collaborating are welcome
> to participate together.  NCBI will also host a web page, which will allow
> interested parties to identify potential collaborators. If you are
> interested in collaborating please send a short description of your role 
> in
> a collaboration (e.g., curator, text miner, system developer), what you
> could contribute in a collaboration, and any URLs linking to further
> information or resources you may want to provide, to 
> wilbur at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.
> Once the web page has content we will send out a notice giving the URL.
