MEDDOPLACE: Location Entity Classification

The tasks aims at classifying the location entities (that is, GPE, GEO and FAC entities) into four different classes of clinical relevance: (a) the patient’s place of origin; (b) the patient’s place of residence; (c) a place where the patient has travelled to or from; (d) a place where the patient has received medical attention. Only one label is possible for each annotation.
