Dear colleagues,

We have some news we hope relevant to you due to your participation in one or more events we have organized or our collaborations with you.

We are organizing the workshop on Automated Extraction of Socio-political Events from News (AESPEN) at the Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC 2020) [1]. There is a shared-task, which is about Event Sentence Coreference Identification (ESCI), organized in the scope of this workshop as well.

For information about the workshop, the shared task, and any updates, please check the workshop web page [1]. The detailed description of the shared task is on [2]. Sign and send the individual application form [3] to ahurriyetoglu at ku.edu.tr if you would like to receive the training data and to participate in the shared task. The test data will be shared with the participants a week before the deadline.

We have created an e-mail list [4] that aims at bringing people that work on or interested in collecting socio-political events together. We would love it if you join us there.

We would appreciate any help in spreading the word on Twitter [5], Linkedin [6], or any other platform you may like.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for anything you may have in mind.

Kind regards,
