TextGraphs-14: 14th Workshop on Graph-Based Natural Language Processing

Venue: COLING 2020 (https://coling2020.org)

Location: Barcelona, Spain

Date: September 14, 2020

Website: https://sites.google.com/view/textgraphs2020

# Workshop Description

TextGraphs, now going on for more than a decade, is a workshop series promoting the synergies between methods of the field of Graph Theory and Natural Language Processing.

The fourteenth edition of the TextGraphs workshop aims to extend the focus on issues and solutions for large-scale graphs, such as those derived for Web-scale knowledge acquisition or social networks, and graph-based and graph-supported machine learning and deep learning methods.

We plan to encourage the description of novel NLP problems or applications that have emerged in recent years, which can be addressed with existing and new graph-based methods. Furthermore, we also encourage research on applications of graph-based methods in the area of Semantic Web to link them to related NLP problems and applications.

This year, a shared task on Explanation Regeneration organized in conjunction with the workshop: https://competitions.codalab.org/competitions/23615.

# Workshop Topics

TextGraphs invites the submission of long and short papers on original and unpublished research covering all aspects of graph-based natural language processing. Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited to, the following (in alphabetical order):

Graph-based and graph-supported machine learning methods:

- Graph embeddings and their combinations with text embeddings

- Graph-based and graph-supported deep learning (e.g., graph-based recurrent and recursive networks)

- Probabilistic graphical models and structure learning methods

Graph-based methods for Information Retrieval and Extraction:

- Graph-based methods for word sense disambiguation

- Graph-based strategies for semantic relation identification

- Encoding semantic distances in graphs

- Graph-based techniques for text summarization simplification, and paraphrasing

- Graph-based techniques for document navigation and visualization

New graph-based methods for NLP applications:

- Random walk methods in graphs

- Semi-supervised graph-based methods

- Graph-based methods for applications on social networks

Graph-based methods for NLP and Semantic Web:

- Representation learning methods for knowledge graphs

- Using graphs-based methods to populate ontologies using textual data
