Meeting Description:

This workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in exploiting
Integer Linear Programming for Natural Language Processing applications and
tackling issues such as dealing with large-scale problems and understanding
the interaction between learning and inference at training and decision time.

Integer Linear Programming (ILP) has recently attracted much attention
within the NLP community. Formulating problems using ILP has several
advantages. It allows us to focus on the modeling of problems, rather than
engineering new search algorithms; provides the opportunity to incorporate
generic global constraints; and guarantees exact inference. This and the
availability of off-the-shelf solvers has lead to a large variety of
natural language processing tasks being formulated in the ILP framework,
including semantic role labeling, syntactic parsing, summarization and
joint information extraction.

The use of ILP brings many benefits and opportunities but there are still
challenges for the community; these include: formulations of new
applications, dealing with large-scale problems and understanding the
interaction between learning and inference at training and decision time.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested in
exploiting ILP for NLP applications and tackling the issues involved.
