Rebecka and Hercules participated in this years edition of ALTA at Monash University in Melbourne on the 5th to the 7th of December 2016. Rebecka gave a presentation on text mining of pathology reports and Hercules gave an invited talk with the title HEALTH BANK: A Workbench for Data Science Applications in Healthcare. ALTA included presentations, tutorials and a poster session. A short report summarizing selected papers is available on request.
Following the conference, we travelled to Brisbane for a visit at the CSIRO Australian e-Health Research Centre (AeHRC). There we met with Dr Anthony Nguyen who is the leader for the Health Data Semantics group.

Last week I went to Umeå to take part in the Swedish Language Technology Conference, SLTC 2016.
I presented a poster with the title: A Sentiment model for Swedish with automatically created training data and handlers for language specific traits, based on the master thesis by Michelle Ludovici. She has created a model for Swedish sentiment analysis and applied the model to news texts.
The next SLTC will be held in Stockholm in 2018 and it will be organized by the linguistics department at Stockholm University and DSV.
Now I am here at my nine months sabbatical stay at CSIRO and Macquarie University in the Sydney suburb North Ryde. I have a office at CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation). CSIRO has many locations in Australia and over 5,000 employees. Macquarie university has 40,000 students and and 3,000 employees, half are academic and half are administrative. On Monday Nov 14, I gave a talk at the Department of Computing at Macquarie University with the title HEALTH BANK – A Workbench for Data Science Applications in Healthcare. My hosts are Dr Cecile Paris at CSIRO and Dr Diego Molla at Macquarie University. The sabbatical stay is funded by RJ, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
