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 panel discussion on possible improvements of the initial Universal Coreference framework proposed at the workshop.
SPECIAL THEME: UNIVERSAL COREFERENCE A special theme of the 2020 edition of the workshop will be 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 idiosyncrasies 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 present it at CRAC 2020. In addition, the workshop will include a panel discussion on possible improvements of the initial proposal.
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
