The workshop will include two components — a standard workshop and a shared task

The Social Media Mining for Health Applications (#SMM4H) workshop serves as a venue for bringing together researchers interested in automatic methods for the collection, extraction, representation, analysis, and validation of social media data (e.g., Twitter, Reddit, Facebook) for health informatics. The 7th #SMM4H Workshop, co-located at COLING 2022 (, invites 4-page paper (unlimited references in standard COLING format) submissions on original, unpublished research in all aspects at the intersection of social media mining and health. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Methods for the automatic detection and extraction of health-related concept mentions in social media

Mapping of health-related mentions in social media to standardized vocabularies

Deriving health-related trends from social media

Information retrieval methods for obtaining relevant social media data

Geographic or demographic data inference from social media discourse

Virus spread monitoring using social media

Mining health-related discussions in social media

Drug abuse and alcoholism incidence monitoring through social media

Disease incidence studies using social media

Sentinel event detection using social media

Semantic methods in social media analysis

Classifying health-related messages in social media

Automatic analysis of social media messages for disease surveillance and patient education

Methods for validation of social media-derived hypotheses and datasets

Shared task
The workshop organizers this year are hosting 10 shared tasks i.e. NLP challenges as part of the workshop. Participating teams will be provided with a set of annotated posts for developing systems, followed by a three-day window during which they will run their systems on unlabeled test data and upload it to Codalab for evaluation. For additional details about the tasks and information about registration, data access, paper submissions, and presentations, go to

Task 1 – Classification, detection, and normalization of Adverse Events (AE) mentions in tweets (in English)

Task 2 – Classification of stance and premise in tweets about health mandates related to COVID-19 (in English)

Task 3 – Classification of changes in medication treatments in tweets and WebMD reviews (in English)

Task 4 – Classification of tweets self-reporting exact age (in English)

Task 5 – Classification of tweets containing self-reported COVID-19 symptoms (in Spanish)

Task 6 – Classification of tweets which indicate self-reported COVID-19 vaccination status (in English)

Task 7 – Classification of self-reported intimate partner violence on Twitter (in English)

Task 8 – Classification of self-reported chronic stress on Twitter (in English)

Task 9 – Classification of Reddit posts self-reporting exact age (in English)

Task 10 – Detection of disease mentions in tweets – SocialDisNER (in Spanish)
