Workshop description -----------------------------

The fifth WiNLP (“Widening NLP”) Workshop will be held in conjunction with EMNLP 2021.

The WiNLP workshop is open to all to foster an inclusive and welcoming ACL community environment. It aims to promote diversity and highlight the work of underrepresented groups in NLP: anyone who self-identifies within an underrepresented demographic [gender, ethnicity, nationality, etc]. The 2021 iteration of the workshop will, in particular, seek to highlight the contribution of women, LGBTQ+, and other underrepresented researchers in NLP and specifically seek contribution from researchers working on low-resource, less-represented languages in the community. The full-day event includes invited talks, oral presentations, and poster sessions. The workshop provides an excellent opportunity for junior members in the community to showcase their work and connect with senior mentors for feedback and career advice. It also offers recruitment opportunities with leading industrial labs. Most importantly, the workshop will provide an inclusive and accepting space, and work to lower structural barriers to joining and collaborating with the NLP community at large.

While everyone is encouraged to attend, the opportunity to present a talk or poster is intended for members of underrepresented groups at all career levels: students, post-docs, professors, and other researchers. We invite submissions in the form of an extended 2-page abstract on topics in computational linguistics and natural language processing, including but not limited to:

-

Cognitive modeling and psycholinguistics

-

Computational social science

-

Corpus development and evaluation

-

Dialog and interactive systems

-

Discourse and pragmatics

-

Document analysis including text categorization, topic models, and

retrieval

-

Ethics in NLP

-

Natural language generation

-

Information extraction, text mining, and question answering

-

Language-inclusive multimodal integration

-

Linguistic theories for NLP

-

Low-resource or endangered languages

-

Machine learning

-

Machine translation

-

Mathematical models of language

-

Multilinguality

-

Phonology, morphology, and word segmentation

-

Resources and evaluation

-

Semantics

-

Sentiment analysis and opinion mining

-

Social media: Twitter, blogs, discussion forums, and other social media

-

-

Tagging, chunking, syntax, and parsing

-

Vision, robots, and other grounding applications

Submission guidelines

----------------------------------

Submissions must follow the standard one-column format. Each submission should be a two-page extended abstract PDF, with any number of additional pages allowed for references (WiNLP/COLING proceedings format). No appendices will be accepted.

Submissions should follow the same style and format guidelines (LaTeX <https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/template-and-instructions-for-winlp-2020/wmghdyddktfd> style files, Word <http://www.winlp.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/WiNLP20_Template.docx> template) and be submitted electronically in PDF format via the WiNLP 2021 online submission portal: https://www.softconf.com/emnlp2021/WiNLP/

Editing and Reviewing Procedure

------------------------------------------------

1.

One week prior to the submission deadline, authors will have the option

to peer-review each others’ abstracts in a non-anonymous format, in

groups of two or three authors. Authors taking this option commit to

helping their peers edit and format their submissions, or revise for

clarity, or provide general feedback before the submission is reviewed.

Authors may use the feedback provided during this peer-editing period to

update their submissions in time for the submission deadline. As in

WiNLP 2020, the program committee will still provide reviews, feedback, and

direct writing mentorship for applicants, but the intent of peer-editing is

to share this responsibility with the participants so that it can scale

with the size of the workshop. Whether or not authors take advantage of

this peer-review option in advance of submission, all submissions are

due on the deadline.

1.

After the submission deadline, abstracts will be reviewed in the

traditional double-blind format. Abstracts will be evaluated on

relevance to the community; the presentation format (talk or poster) will

be decided based on scientific merit and potential interest to a broad

audience.

Multiple-Submission Policy:

As we aim for improved and increased representation of underrepresented minorities, we will consider anonymized two-page abstracts of papers that have been submitted to other venues or have already been published elsewhere since January 1, 2021. However, authors must clearly indicate this at submission time.

Authors may not submit to both the regular and visa-friendly deadlines.

Travel support

-------------------

There will be a limited amount of travel grants and/or additional funding to cover expenses, similar to the previous editions. More information will be made available closer to the submission deadline and linked from http://www.winlp.org/winlp-2021-workshop/
