Abstract

This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia to discuss search and discovery in the medical domain. The event focuses on ways to make medical and health information more accessible to laypeople (including enhancements to ranking algorithms and search interfaces), and how we can discover new medical facts and phenomena from information sought online, as evidenced in query streams and other sources such as social media. This domain also offers many opportunities for applications that monitor and improve quality of life of those affected by medical conditions, by providing tools to support their healthrelated information behavior.
