Collocated with ACL 2016, in Berlin, on August 12th 2016.

Named Entities (NE) play a crucial role in many monolingual and multilingual Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Information Retrieval (IR) tasks, such as document search, clustering, information extraction, etc. The phenomenal growth of the Internet data and the dramatic changes in the user demographics especially among the non-English speaking parts of the world, has made identification, association and transformation Named Entities across languages a critical path problem for most NLP and IR Tasks

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested in various aspects of NEs in natural language text.

Topics of Interest:

This workshop invites original research contributions on all aspects of Named Entities (NEs), including identification, analysis, extraction, mining, transformation and applications to NLP and IR systems. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

* NE Analysis - Distributional characteristics of NEs in mono- and multi-lingual text corpus - Orthographic/phonetic characteristics of NE * NE Annotated Data - Annotated data sets in specific languages & Creation experiences * Monolingual and Multilingual NE Identification & processing - Named Entity Recognition (approaches & evaluation) - Monolingual NE set expansion - Cross-lingual NE data identification & mapping - Cross-lingual NE data mining - Social Network Analysis and Entity Resolution * Machine Transliteration - Statistical transliteration approaches & evaluation * NE for IR - NE for Monolingual IR - NE Translation/Transliteration for CLIR * NE in Social Media - Fuzzy matching of Named Entities - Multilingual matching of Named Entities - De-duplication of entities across social media
