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.

    knowledge representation and semantics for biomedical literature retrieval
    Knowledge graphs in biomedical search
    Biomedical knowledge source integration
    Biomedical knowledge graph construction and embedding
    Biomedical ontologies in search
    Semantic features in biomedical literature classification and ranking
    Learning to rank biomedical literature
    Semantics and Search for biomedical knowledge synthesis and systematic literature review
    Entity linking and semantic annotation in biomedical texts
    Datasets, metrics, and evaluation
    Knowledge discovery / synthesis from literature
    Biomedical literature retrieval for the systematic review process
    Search and semantics of the publication process (reviewing,quality assurance, discovering (self ) plagiarism)
    Knowledge integration from multilingual Biomedical literature
    Biomedical literature datasets, such as CORD-19 and evaluation methods
    Search and semantic tools for knowledge synthesis, and systematic reviews
