Driving Innovation from bench to bedside with NLP

Linguamatics Virtual NLP Summit 2020 kicks-off on May 19th

Due to the current global situation we are no longer able to hold our in-person Spring Text Mining Conference or NLP seminar series. So, we thought, why not put everything together in a series of online events to bring Natural Language Processing (NLP) to even more people. The event will consist of two types of events, spread out over a few weeks.

Check out the events & speakers below.

Use case presentations

With the help of some of our leading customers, we will be sharing use cases and best practices during a series of 4 live events. You can register for any day that interests you in the agendas below, or register for all 4 events through the link below. 

Training workshops

Also, we are offering training online for the first time. Read more about the training workshops being offered, and be sure to register for each session that is of interest. 

This is an opportunity like never before and we're really excited to be offering this to a global audience!

REGISTER NOW

What is it?

A virtual series of presentations in May and June from Linguamatics NLP users, sharing projects, successes, latest product information and technology updates - delivered right to your living room, kitchen, study, or wherever!  As part of the event, there are also some brand-new training opportunities open to all current users of i2e. 

Who is it for?

Anyone working in Pharma, Biotech, Academic Medical Centres, Hospitals and Healthcare Providers, Payers and other research organizations interested in learning more about Natural Language Processing and text mining.

Why attend?

This is an opportunity for those who are keen to understand more about Linguamatics and Natural Language Processing to get unprecedented access to our experts and hear from our customer talks – no matter where you are based. We have a rich variety of speakers from Eli Lilly, Roche, Novo Nordisk, Washington University, Georgetown University and more, based across Europe and North America. You can attend all days or pick and choose which days to attend. You can also watch the presentations on demand, in case you missed something or the kids pop in to ask for another snack.
