*TextGraphs-12: The 12th Workshop on Graph-based Methods for Natural Language Processing*

Workshop at the 16th Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies (NAACL-HLT 2018)

June 5 or 6, 2018

New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

(Hyatt Regency New Orleans hotel)



The TextGraphs series of workshops, now going on for more than a decade, have published and promoted the synergy between the field of Graph Theory (GT) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). The twelfth edition of the TextGraphs workshop aims to extend the focus on graph-based and graph-supported machine learning and deep learning methods. We encourage the description of novel NLP problems or applications that have emerged in recent years, which can be addressed with existing and new graph-based methods. Furthermore, we also encourage research on applications of graph-based methods in the area of Semantic Web in order to link them to related NLP problems and applications.

The target audience comprises researchers working on problems related to either Graph Theory or graph-based algorithms applied to Natural Language Processing, social media, and the Semantic Web.


TextGraphs-12 invites submissions on (but not limited to) the following topics (see the website for a full list):

○ Graph embeddings

○ Graph-based and graph-supported deep learning (e.g., graph-based recurrent and recursive networks)

○ Probabilistic graphical models and structure learning methods

○ Graph-based methods for reasoning and interpreting deep neural networks

○ Exploration of capabilities and limitations of graph-based methods being applied to neural networks

○ Investigation of aspects of neural networks that are (not) susceptible to graph-based analysis

○ Graph-based methods for Information Retrieval, Information Extraction, and Text Mining

○ Graph-based methods for word sense disambiguation

○ Graph-based strategies for semantic relation identification

○ Encoding semantic distances in graphs

○ Graph-based techniques for text summarization, simplification, and paraphrasing

○ Graph-based techniques for document navigation and visualization

○ Random walk methods in graphs

○ Spectral graph clustering

○ Semi-supervised graph-based methods

○ Small world graphs

○ Dynamic graph representations

○ Graph kernels

○ Graph-based methods for applications on social networks

○ Graph-based methods for NLP and Semantic Web

○ Inducing knowledge of ontologies into NLP applications using graphs


All submission deadlines are at 11:59 p.m. PST
