Meeting Description:

BSNLP 2019: 7th Workshop on Balto-Slavic Natural Language Processing
Florence, Italy
2 August 2019

In conjunction with:
ACL 2019: 57th Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics

Endorsed by: SIGSLAV: ACL Special Interest Group on NLP for Slavic Languages

Theme and Motivation:

Languages from the Balto-Slavic group play an important role due to their diverse cultural heritage and widespread use -- with over 400 million speakers worldwide. The political and economic developments in Central and Eastern Europe have brought Balto-Slavic societies and their languages into focus, in terms of rapid technological advancement and expanding consumer markets.

This Workshop addresses Natural Language Processing (NLP) for the Balto-Slavic languages. NLP tasks in urgent need of attention include:

- morphological analysis and generation,
- morphosyntactic tagging,
- syntactic and semantic parsing,
- lexical semantics,
- named-entity recognition,
- text normalisation and processing non-standard language
- coreference resolution,
- information extraction,
- question answering,
- information retrieval,
- text summarization,
- machine translation,
- development of linguistic resources.

BSNLP 2019 features the 2nd Edition of the Shared Task on Multilingual Named Entity Recognition for Slavic languages.
