Hi Emilia,

I am pleased to inform you that your submission has been accepted for an oral presentation on Monday, May 12.  You will have 15 minutes for your talk, with 5 minutes for questions.  Please be focused and succinct with your presentation; one of the greatest benefits from presenting at Swarmfest is the interaction with the audience.  Please also note that there is a deadline for receiving the Swarmfest special rate at the Inn of Chicago; you must make your reservation by phone prior to April 30.  A final program with the specific time of your talk will be forthcoming within the week.  Please let me know if you have any questions. See you in May!

Dear organizers,

Please accept the attached paper for an oral presentation at the 2008 Swarmfest.

Named Entity Recognition in Acute Inflammatory Response Studies

This paper presents a study of the task of recognizing a specific type
of Named Entities in
medical texts describing trauma conditions. The study includes data
gathering, named
entity orthographic rule definitions, building a lexicon, and training
via a machine
learning method - Conditional Random Fields. This Named Entity
Recognition task is
viewed as the first step of information extraction of free text
clinical studies describing
shock, trauma, inflammation, and other related states. The end goal is
to build a
computer model of the acute inflammatory response using agent-based
modeling. The
goal of this agent-based model is to simulate the body response to
shock and trauma.

Thank you very much.
