Hercules Dalianis and I recently attended NoDaLiDa 2019, the Nordic Conference on Computational Linguistics, in Turku (Åbo), Finland between September 30 to October 2 2019.

The first NoDaLiDa conference was in Gothenburg in 1977 and included 13 papers written on typewriters. The papers were in Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and English. This years rendition was considerably larger with over 75 papers presented during workshops or the main conference.  None was written on a typewriter to my knowledge and all were in English. The papers did not only include research related to the Nordic languages, but also Spanish, Czech and Tibetan to name a few.

Both Hercules and I presented papers during the workshop on NLP and pseudonymization. I presented the paper Augmenting a De-identification System for Swedish Clinical Text Using Open Resources and Deep Learning, co-written with Hercules, and Hercules presented his paper Pseudonymisation of Swedish Electronic Patient Records Using a Rule-Based Approach.

All the best,
