The 3rd Workshop on Computational Models of Reference, Anaphora and Coreference (CRAC 2020) (https://sites.google.com/view/crac2020)

September 13 or 14, 2020 Barcelona Collocated with COLING 2020

OBJECTIVES The workshop aims to provide a forum where work on all aspects of computational work on anaphora resolution and annotation can be presented. The highlight of CRAC 2020 will be a shared task that revolves around the theme of Universal Coreference (see the section on Shared Task). In addition, the workshop will include a panel discussion on possible improvements of the initial Universal Coreference framework based on the outcomes of the shared task

TOPICS The workshop will welcome submissions describing both theoretical and applied computational work on anaphora / coreference resolution, including on languages other than English, and less-researched types of anaphora such as bridging references.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following: ● Universal Coreference ● Coreference resolution for less-researched languages ● Annotation and interpretation of anaphoric relations, including relations other than identity coreference (e.g., bridging references, reference to abstract entities) ● Investigation of difficult cases of anaphora / coreference and their resolution ● Anaphora / coreference resolution in noisy data (e.g. in speech, social media) ● New applications of coreference resolution

SHARED TASK ON UNIVERSAL COREFERENCE A special theme of the 2020 edition of the workshop is the Universal Coreference framework - a unified markup scheme applicable to multiple languages, reflecting common cross-linguistic understanding of reference-related phenomena. This theme was motivated by the recent successes of the development of Universal Dependencies. As with Universal Dependencies, the Universal Coreference framework aims to facilitate referential analysis of similarities and idiosyncracies among typologically different languages, support comparative evaluation of coreference resolution systems and enable comparative linguistic studies. The workshop organizers will develop and implement an initial version of the framework and organize a shared task around it as part of CRAC 2020. In addition, the workshop will include a panel discussion on possible improvements of the initial framework based on the outcomes of the shared task. Note: the data, timetable and more information of the shared task will be distributed in a separate CfP soon.
