HLT/NAACL 2006 Workshop
Graph-based Methods for Natural Language Processing


New York City, June 9, 2006

Graph theory is a well studied discipline, and so is the field of
natural language processing. Traditionally, these two areas of study
have been perceived as distinct, with different algorithms, different
applications, and different potential end-users. However, as recent
research work has shown, the two disciplines are in fact intimately
connected, with a large variety of natural language processing
applications finding efficient solutions within graph-theoretical

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers
working on problems related to the use of graph-based algorithms for
natural language processing. The workshop is expected to bring
together people working on areas as diverse as lexical semantics, text
summarization, text mining, ontology construction, clustering and
learning, connected by the common underlying theme consisting of the
use of graph-theoretical methods for text processing tasks.

We invite submissions of papers addressing the following or related topics:

- Graph algorithms for text understanding
- Graph matching for text mining
- Graph algorithms for thesaurus construction
- Graph methods for identification of semantic relations
- Graph-based ranking algorithms for language processing
- Random walk methods
- Graph algorithms for information extraction
- Spectral learning or clustering applied to NLP
- Graph algorithms for word sense disambiguation
- Lexical chaining algorithms and applications

Submission format:

Full paper submissions will consist of 8 pages, formatted following
the NAACL 2006 guidelines. Short papers will be 4 pages long.
Submission instructions will be announced on the workshop website.

Important dates:

Regular paper submissions March 10
Short paper submissions March 17
Notification of acceptance April 7
Camera-ready papers April 26
Workshop June 8 or 9
