4th Workshop on Noisy User-generated Text at EMNLP 2018


Call for Papers

The WNUT workshop focuses on Natural Language Processing applied to noisy user-generated text, such as that found in social media, online reviews, crowdsourced data, web forums, clinical records and language learner essays.

We seek submissions of regular papers on original and unpublished work (same page limit EMNLP main conference; long or short papers). 1-page abstracts on work-in-progress or work published elsewhere are also welcome and will *not* be included in the conference proceedings. All accepted submissions will be presented as posters. Additionally, selected submissions will be presented orally.

Important Dates: - Submission Deadline: Friday, July 20 - Acceptance Notification: Friday, August 17 - Camera-Ready: Friday, August 31 - Workshop: October 31 or November 1, EMNLP (Brussels, Belgium)

Best paper award sponsor: Microsoft Research

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- NLP Preprocessing of Noisy Text - Part of speech tagging - Named entity tagging, including a wide range of categories, e.g. product names - Chunking of user-generated text - Parsing - Text Normalization and Error Correction - Normalizing noisy text for downstream tasks and for human readability - Error detection and correction - Multilingual NLP in noisy text - Sentiment analysis - Crowdsourcing of text data - User prediction, e.g. geolocation, gender, age, etc - Stylistics, e.g. formality, politeness, etc - Colloquial language, e.g. code-switching, idiom detection - Bilingual translation of the noisy text - Paraphrase identification and semantic similarity of short text or noisy text - Information extraction from noisy text - Domain adaptation to user-generated text - Geolocation prediction - Global and regional trend detection and event extraction - Detecting rumors, contradictory information, sarcasm and humor on social media - Extracting user demographics, profiles, and major life events - Temporal aspects of user-generated content (resolving time expressions, concept drift, diachronic analyses, etc...)

All submissions should conform to EMNLP 2018 style guidelines (http://emnlp2018.org/calls/papers/). Long and short paper submissions must be anonymized. Abstract submissions should include author information (and where the work was published in a footnote on the front page, if applicable). Please submit your papers at the SoftConf link (https://www.softconf.com/emnlp2018/w-nut/user/).

Double Submission Policy: Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must indicate at submission time. Authors of a paper accepted for presentation must notify the workshop organizers by the camera-ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented or withdrawn. (Exception: 1-page abstracts can be work-in-progress or work published elsewhere.)
