The 11th BioASQ Workshop will be held on 18-19 September 2023, at the Grand Hotel Palace, Thessaloniki, Greece as part of the Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum (CLEF 2023). The venue is located near the centre of the city of Thessaloniki, the second-largest city in Greece and the capital of the Central Macedonia region.
Thessaloniki is considered Greece’s cultural capital, with about a million inhabitants, and a large and vibrant student community. It is renowned for its festivals, events and diverse cultural life in general and has recently been ranked by Lonely Planet as the world’s fifth-best party city worldwide. More importantly, it is also a city with a continuous 3,000 year old history, including relics of its Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman past, and of its formerly dominant Jewish population. In fact, many of its Byzantine churches and a whole district of the city in particular, are included in UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
