Student Mentoring Track

The student mentoring forum will be held at the CLEF ehealth evaluation lab.

The Student Mentoring Forum is aimed at post-graduate students who would like to present and get feedback on their on-going research related to the multidisciplinary ShARe/CLEF eHealth tracks or other related areas such as:
  1. evaluation of mono- and multilingual methods, applications and resources for eHealth document analysis;
  2. development of statistical and user-feedback based evaluation protocols, settings, methods and measures for cross-language evaluation of methods, applications, and resources for eHealth document analysis.
Work in progress and/or tentative research plans in these research areas are especially welcomed.

Students of each accepted submission will be assigned a senior researcher from the student mentoring committee who will provide students with personal feedback on their submission. Mentors may be assigned with expertise in areas complementary to the student’s main area of study. Students are invited to suggest areas of their research for which they would specifically like expert comment.

Each accepted paper will be presented at a poster session at the eHealth Evaluation Lab sessions at CLEF 2014, which will offer further opportunity for mentors' feedback, and questions & answers between students and senior academics. Short abstracts of accepted papers will also be included in the CLEF eHealth lab working notes.
