The sixth HEXAnord meeting took place in Zakopane, Poland, with participants
from Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Lithuania, Estonia and France.
The three-day meeting included lectures and discussions on annotation, machine learning, medical terminology and natural language processing.
Our invited speaker Dr. Frédérique Segond, from Objet Direct, Grenoble, France presented the ALADIN project. The goal with the project was to develop a system to detect Hospital Acquired Infections, HAI, from analysis of patient records in French. The system was developed by characterizing risk factors associated with hospital acquired infections as they may appear in the hospital medical records.
All Phd-students presented their different groupwork from the HEXAnords PhD training course part II, among that a new idea of a time based summarisation engine for patient records.
There was also time for visiting the Tatra mountains. Some of us did it with skis, by horse or by foot.
(Participants from DSV-Stockholm University, were Hercules Dalianis, Martin Hassel, Aron Henriksson, Maria Skeppstedt, Sumithra Velupillai, Mia Kvist, Hideyuki Tanushi and Sara Brissman.)
