CALL FOR PAPERS
RELATIONS Workshop on meaning relations between phrases and sentences
23rd of May 2019
Description The RELATIONS workshop invites submissions of long and short papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research focusing on comparing the meaning of linguistic expressions such as phrases, clauses, sentences, and paragraphs. We are interested in both: theoretical research on the nature of meaning relations and the empirical work on identifying, generating, and extracting them. We also invite submissions studying the impact of the relations in downstream applications.
Topics Examples for meaning relations of interest are: Synonymy/Paraphrase (Phrases/sentences having approx. the same meaning) Entailment (One phrase/sentence being inferred from another) Specificity (One phrase/sentence being more general than another) Similarity (Phrases/sentences with a partial meaning overlap)
Topics of interest wrt. meaning relations include, but are not limited to: Annotating meaning relations Resources for meaning relations Applications making use of meaning relations Transfer Learning between meaning relations Evaluation frameworks or metrics for meaning relations Meaning representation models and their connection with meaning relations (symbolic as well as statistical approaches) Theoretical research on the nature of the meaning relations e.g. a typology, or a comparison of several relations
Important Dates Submission deadline (tentative): March 07 Author notification: April 07 Camera ready: April 20 Workshop: May 23 Note: All deadlines are 11:59PM UTC-12:00 ("anywhere on Earth")
Submission and Reviewing Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair. The submission site will be announced shortly. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop and will be published in the workshop proceedings. Reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not include the authors' names and affiliations or self-references that reveal the authors’ identity--e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ..." should be replaced with citations such as "Smith (1991) previously showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.
Dual Submission Policy Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must indicate this at submission time. Authors of papers accepted for presentation at RELATIONS 2019 must notify the program chairs by the camera-ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference to appear in the proceedings. We will not accept for publication or presentation papers that overlap significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere. All submissions should comply with the recent ACL policies on Submission, Review and Citation. The authors are strongly encouraged to check those here before submitting their paper.
