The 4th IEEE International Workshop on Empirical Methods for Recognizing Inference in TExt (IEEE EM-RITE 2015)
In conjunction with IEEE IRI 2015
Sofitel Hotel, San Francisco, USA August 13-15, 2015
Textual Entailment and Paraphrase are inference tasks of natural language processing (NLP) for automatically detecting entailment, paraphrase, and contradiction in texts. The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for original high-quality research contributions on empirical methods for recognizing inference in text as well as multidisciplinary research opportunities.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to practical areas that span a variety of aspects of empirical methods for recognizing inference in text including:
Guidelines, standards, best practices and models for the construction and annotation of Textual Entailment datasets Evaluation of Knowledge Resources for Textual Entailment Recognizing Inference in Text Recognizing Inference in Text and Validation Recognizing Textual Entailment Fact Validation System Validation Question Answering Question Analysis Answer Extraction Answer Selection Answer Validation Question Answering over Linked Data Biomedical Semantic Indexing and Question Answering Entrance Exams Machine Reading Reading Comprehension Tests Knowledge Base Population Information Retrieval Information Extraction Text Summarization Text Mining Web Mining Natural Language Processing Applications Sentiment Analysis Opinion Mining Social Computing Social Media Mining
Authors are invited to submit a paper up to 8 pages (in English) in double-column IEEE format following the submission guidelines available at the IEEE IRI 2015 web page. Papers must be original and not submitted to or accepted by any other conference or journal. An electronic version (PDF format) of the full paper should be submitted by the paper submission deadline to EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ieeeemrite2015). All submissions will be acknowledged.
Regular paper submission: April 4, 2015 Notification of acceptance: May 4, 2015 Camera-ready paper due: May 14, 2015 Author registration due: May 14, 2015 Conference events: August 13-15, 2015
