We invite all authors of novel research on scientific document understanding to submit their paper to the second workshop of Scientific Document Understanding to be held at the 36th AAAI conference on artificial intelligence. Our one-day workshop focuses on advances, challenges, and resources for processing and analyzing scientific text. It features invited talks, oral and poster paper presentations, and two shared tasks for acronyms in multilingual scientific and legal text. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


Information extraction and information retrieval for scientific



Question answering and question generation for scholarly documents;


Word sense disambiguation, acronym identification and expansion, and

definition extraction;


Document summarization, text mining, document topic classification, and

machine reading comprehension for scientific documents;


Graph analysis applications including knowledge graph construction and

representation, graph reasoning and query knowledge graphs;


Multi-modal and multi-lingual scholarly text processing;


Biomedical image processing, scientific image plagiarism detection, and

data visualization;


Code/Pseudo-code generation from text and image/diagram captioning;


New language understanding resources such as new syntactic/semantic

parsers, language models or techniques to encode scholarly text;


Survey or analysis papers on scientific document understanding and new

tasks and challenges related to each scientific domain;


Factuality, data verification, and anti-science detection;

SDU at AAAI-22 accepts papers in both long (up to 8 pages) and short (up to 4 pages) tracks. The submissions should be in PDF format and follow the AAAI-22 templates. The review process is double-blinded and submissions should observe the AAAI-22 guidelines for anonymity.

We also present two shared tasks <https://sites.google.com/view/sdu-aaai22/shared-task> on (1) extracting acronyms and their long-forms in English, French, Spanish, Danish, Persian, and Vietnamese text and (2) disambiguating ambiguous acronyms in English, French, and Spanish text to find their intended meanings. We strongly encourage participants to submit their system reports to SDU at AAAI-22. The winners of the tasks and selected teams (based on the substance of the approach) are invited to present their work in the oral presentation session.
