chemistry, medicine, public health and informatics to discuss and 
exploit cutting edge language technologies. The fourth symposium
(LBM 2011) will be held at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), 
Singapore on December 14th and 15th, 2011. This year it will be 
organised as a pre-conference workshop of the 25th Pacific Asia

TOPICS. We invite papers on natural language processing, ontology
engineering and matching, bio-sequence analysis, systems modelling,
database systems, logical inference, information visualization, and
image retrieval. This year we particularly encourage submissions
focusing on languages in health-care and chemistry to reflect recent
research trends in translational medicine and clinical and chemical

The topics include, but are not limited to:
- Text mining, retrieval, and management
- Semantic indexing and querying
- Ontology construction, mapping, integration, and maintenance
- Sequence analysis using language processing techniques
- Data modelling and annotation languages
- Information integration and visualization
- Languages for health-care and chemistry

KEYNOTES. We are delighted to announce two keynote presentations by
Dina Demner-Fushman (National Library of Medicine) and Peter Murray-Rust

PAPER SUBMISSION. We invite both long (8 pages) and short (4 pages)
papers presenting original research, as well as poster presentations.
Instructions for authors are available at

Selected papers will be published in special issues of Journal of
