held in conjunction with the 42nd European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR'20)
Lisbon, Portugal, April 14th, 2020
Website: http://text2story20.inesctec.pt ******************************************************************************************
Due to several requests, we have decided to extend the submission date for next Monday (February 3rd).
++ Important Dates ++ - Submission deadline: February 3rd, 2020 - Acceptance Notification Date: February 28th, 2020 - Camera-ready copies: March 23rd, 2020 - Workshop: April 14th, 2020
++ Overview ++ Building upon the success of the previous two editions of the workshop (Text2Story at ECIR’18 and Text2Story at ECIR’19), and the subsequent special issue hosted at IPM journal [https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/information-processing-and-management/vol/56/issue/5], we will organize the third edition of the Text2Story Workshop on Narrative Extraction from Texts at ECIR’20. Although the understanding of natural language has improved over the last couple of years - with research works emerging on the grounds of information extraction and text mining - the problem of constructing consistent narrative structures is yet to be solved.
++ List of Topics ++ In the third edition of the workshop, we aim to discuss scientific advances on all aspects of storyline identification from texts including but not limited to narrative extraction and understanding, content generation, formal representation, and visualization of narratives. This includes the following topics (not necessarily complete):
- Event Identification - Narrative Representation - Information Retrieval Models based on Story Evolution - Narrative-focused Search in Text Collections - Temporal Information Retrieval and Narrative Extraction - Sentiment and Opinion Detection - Argumentation Mining - Narrative Summarization - Multi-modal Summarization - Storyline Visualization - Temporal Aspects of Storylines - Story Evolution and Shift Detection - Causal Relation Extraction and Arrangement - Evaluation Methodologies for Narrative Extraction - Big data applied to Narrative Extraction - Resources and Dataset showcase - Personalization and Recommendation - User Profiling and User Behavior Modeling - Credibility - Models for detection and removal of bias in generated stories - Ethical and fair narrative generation - Fact Checking - Bots Influence - Bias in Text Documents - Automatic Timeline Generation - Narratives for explainable AI
++ Submission Guidelines ++ We invite two kinds of submissions: - Research papers (max 7 pages + references) - Demos and position papers (max 5 pages + references)
Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=text2story2020). All submissions must be in English and formatted according to Springer LNCS style (http://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines)
Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the programme committee. The accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published at CEUR workshop proceedings (usually indexed on DBLP).
++ Workshop Format ++ Participants of accepted papers will be given 15 minutes for oral presentations. All papers will also be also presented in an interactive poster session.
