Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 07-Mar-2019

Meeting Description:

(Session of 13th International Conference on Computational Semantics)

The RELATIONS workshop is focused on comparing the meaning of linguistic expressions such as phrases, clauses, sentences, and paragraphs. We are interested in both: theoretical research on the nature of meaning relations and the empirical work on identifying, generating, and extracting them.

Examples for meaning relations of interest are: Synonymy/Paraphrase (Phrases/sentences having approx. the same meaning), Entailment (One phrase/sentence being inferred from another), Specificity (One phrase/sentence being more general than another), and Similarity (Phrases/sentences with a partial meaning overlap).

Final Call for Papers:

The RELATIONS workshop invites submissions of long and short papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research focusing on comparing the meaning of linguistic expressions such as phrases, clauses, sentences, and paragraphs. We are interested in both: theoretical research on the nature of meaning relations and the empirical work on identifying, generating, and extracting them. We also invite submissions studying the impact of the relations in downstream applications.

Topics:

Examples for meaning relations of interest are:

Synonymy/Paraphrase (Phrases/sentences having approx. the same meaning)
Entailment (One phrase/sentence being inferred from another)
Specificity (One phrase/sentence being more general than another)
Similarity (Phrases/sentences with a partial meaning overlap)

Topics of interest wrt. meaning relations include, but are not limited to:

Annotating meaning relations
Resources for meaning relations
Applications making use of meaning relations
Transfer Learning between meaning relations
Evaluation frameworks or metrics for meaning relations
Meaning representation models and their connection with meaning relations (symbolic as well as statistical approaches)
Theoretical research on the nature of the meaning relations e.g. a typology, or a comparison of several relations

Important Dates:

Submission deadline: March 07
Author notification: April 07
Camera ready: April 20
Workshop: May 23
Note: All deadlines are 11:59PM UTC-12:00 (''anywhere on Earth'')

Submission and Reviewing:

Papers should be electronically submitted in PDF format via the EasyChair system on https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwcs2019.
Please make sure that you select the right track when submitting a paper (W2: RELATIONS). Formatting instructions can be found on:
https://sites.google.com/view/relations-2019/instructions-for-authors

Each paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop and will bepublished in the workshop proceedings. Reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not include the authors' names and affiliations or self-references that reveal the authors’ identity--e.g., ''We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...'' should be replaced with citations such as ''Smith (1991) previously showed ...''. Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.

Dual Submission Policy:

Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must indicate this at submission time. Authors of papers accepted for presentation at RELATIONS 2019 must notify the program chairs by the camera-ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference to appear in the proceedings. We will not accept for publication or presentation papers that overlap significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere.
All submissions should comply with the recent ACL policies on Submission, Review and Citation. The authors are strongly encouraged to check those here before submitting their paper.
