*LREC 2022 Workshop: ResT-UP 2 - Second International Workshop on Resources and Techniques for User Information in Abusive Language Analysis*

ResT-UP 2 will be held in conjunction with LREC2022 ( https://lrec2022.lrec-conf.org/) on June 24, 2022 (a full day session), and aims at bringing together researchers and scholars working on stylometric analysis and automatic detection of abusive language on the Web, e.g., cyberbullying or hate speech, with a twofold objective: improving the existing LRs, e.g., datasets, corpora, lexicons, and sharing ideas on stylometry techniques and features useful to characterise abusive language online in a fair and transparent way.

ResT-UP 2 targets stylometry scholars and research groups, experts in statistics and stylistic analysis of texts as well as computational linguists who investigate author and community information both in short texts (social media posts, blog texts and email) and in long texts (such as pamphlets, (fake) news and political documents).

ResT-UP 2 represents an opportunity to share stylometric experiments with the scientific community and to show automatic detection techniques of abusive language on the Web. We would be happy to receive also proposals that present projects and artificial intelligence platforms that fight online frauds, cyberbullying, cyberstalking and terrorism, as well as proposals that investigate the role of author information and stylometry in the detection of abusive language online, also through bot detection approaches. Papers that present corpora and ad-hoc linguistic resources for stylometric analysis are welcomed, especially if aimed at profiling to detect hate-speech, cyberbullying, cyberstalking, terrorism, online fraud, plagiarism, fake news, both on ongoing and on completed researches (with positive or negative results). We also solicit the submission of papers discussing ethical implications, risks and legal constraints (e.g. European GDPR) of user profiling in the context of abusive language analysis.

Topics of interest:

Linguistic Resources for

- Abusive Language Analysis and Forensic Linguistics

- Cognitive Profiling

- Computational Stylometry for User and Author Profiling

- Hate speech and abusive language detection

- Profiling of trolls, bots, and users producing hate speech

- Stylistic Features Extraction

- Textual Statistics

Computational Linguistic Analysis of Social Media

Ethical and legal issues in Author Profiling

Machine Learning Profiling Techniques

Projects and Artificial Intelligence Profiling platforms

All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not currently under review. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. We welcome the following types of contributions:


Standard research papers (up to 8 pages, plus more pages for references

if needed);


Short research papers (from 4 to 6 pages, plus more pages for references

if needed).

Submissions must be anonymous and strictly follow the LREC2022 stylesheet formatting guidelines <https://lrec2022.lrec-conf.org/en/submission2022/submission-guidelines/>. <https://lrec2020.lrec-conf.org/en/submission2020/authors-kit/>All papers should be electronically submitted in PDF format via the main conference platform via START (track ResT-UP 2).

Share your LRs!

Describing your LRs in the LRE Map is now a normal practice in the submission procedure of LREC (introduced in 2010 and adopted by other conferences). To continue the efforts initiated at LREC 2014 about “Sharing LRs” (data, tools, web-services, etc.), authors will have the possibility, when submitting a paper, to upload LRs in a special LREC repository. This effort of sharing LRs, linked to the LRE Map for their description, may become a new “regular” feature for conferences in our field, thus contributing to creating a common repository where everyone can deposit and share data.

When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in the paper or are a new result of your research.

Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.) to enable their reuse and replicability of experiments (including evaluation ones).


As scientific work requires accurate citations of referenced work so as to allow the community to understand the whole context and also replicate the experiments conducted by other researchers, LREC 2020 endorses the need to uniquely Identify LRs through the use of the International Standard Language Resource Number (ISLRN, www.islrn.org), a Persistent Unique Identifier to be assigned to each Language Resource. The assignment of ISLRNs to LRs cited in LREC papers will be offered at submission time.


Proceedings for workshop papers will be submitted for inclusion in the conference proceedings and published by the European Language Resources Association (ELRA).

Important dates:

Submission deadline: April 15, 2022

Notification of acceptance: May 3, 2022

Camera-ready papers due: May 23, 2022

Workshop Date: June 24, 2022 (full day)
