The second WiNLP Workshop will be held in conjunction with NAACL 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana. WiNLP stands for Widening NLP. The workshop will consist of (1) Invited Talks, (2) Career panel-discussion, (3) Contributed oral talks and posters,(4) Recruitment/General mentoring Lunch, and (5) Individual mentoring. The first call-for-papers targeted researchers who required an early deadline to allow for extended period to apply for visa. For this second call for paper we invite manuscripts that have not been previously submitted to WiNLP18. This deadline aims to enable every interested author from an under-represented group to submit to WiNLP while minimizing conflicts between other ACL-related submission deadlines. Authors should take into consideration that this deadline may not allow sufficient time to apply for a visa if needed.

Workshop Date: June 1, 2018 (Tutorial day) Paper Submission Deadline: March 9, 2018

The WiNLP workshop is open to all. Its aim is to highlight the work of underrepresented groups in NLP — anyone who self-identifies within an underrepresented demographic, and would benefit from a more inclusive ACL environment. The full-day event includes invited talks, oral presentations, and poster sessions, and provides an excellent opportunity for junior members in the community to showcase their work and connect with senior mentors for feedback and career advice. It also offers recruitment opportunities with leading industrial labs. Most importantly, the workshop serves to share and promote the work of subpopulations in NLP that face additional barriers to entry and acceptance in the NLP community. While everyone is encouraged to attend, the opportunity to present a talk or poster is intended for underrepresented genders and minorities (students, post-docs, professors, and other researchers). We invite submissions in the form of an extended 2-page abstract on topics in computational linguistics and natural language processing, including but not limited to: Cognitive modeling and psycholinguistics Computational social science Corpus development and evaluation Dialog and interactive systems Discourse and pragmatics Document analysis including text categorization, topic models, and retrieval Natural language generation Information extraction, text mining, and question answering Language-inclusive multimodal integration Linguistic theories for NLP Low-resource or endangered languages Machine learning Machine translation Mathematical models of language Multilinguality Phonology, morphology, and word segmentation Resources and evaluation Semantics Sentiment analysis and opinion mining Social media: Twitter, blogs, discussion forums, and other social media Sociolinguistics Speech, prosody, and spoken dialog Summarization Tagging, chunking, syntax, and parsing Vision, robots, and other grounding applications Invited Speakers: Claire Cardie, Cornell University Su Jian, Baidu Natalie Schluter, IT University of Copenhagen Invited Panelists: Houda Bouamor, Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar Barbara Plank, University of Groningen Mugizi Robert Rwebangira, Howard University Amanda Stent, Bloomberg Submission Guidelines Papers: Submissions must follow the standard two-column format of the ACL 2018 proceedings. Each submission should be a two-page Extended Abstract pdf, with any number of additional pages allowed for references.

Reviewing Procedure: Submissions will be peer reviewed in the double-blind format. Abstracts will be evaluated on relevance to the community; the presentation format (talk or poster) will be decided based on scientific merit and potential interest to a broad audience. Multiple-Submission Policy: As our goal is to highlight contribution to the community from women and underrepresented minorities, we will consider anonymized 2-page abstracts of papers that were submitted to other venues or published elsewhere in the past year (i.e. after Jan 1st, 2017), though authors must indicate this at submission time.

Travel Support There will be a limited amount of travel grant and/or additional funding to cover expenses. More information will be made available closer to the submission deadline. Important Dates Submission deadline: March 9, 2018 Notification of acceptance: April 15, 2018 Travel grant application deadline: March 27, 2018 Camera-ready submission deadline: April 25, 2018 Travel grant notification: April 27, 2018 Workshop date: June 1, 2018 NAACL conference dates: June 1 – June 6, 2018 All deadlines are 11:59 PM GMT -12.
