# Workshop Description

For the past fifteen years, the workshops in the TextGraphs series have published and promoted the synergy between the field of Graph Theory (GT) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). The mix between the two started small, with graph theoretical frameworks providing efficient and elegant solutions for NLP applications. Graph-based solutions initially focused on single-document part-of-speech tagging, word sense disambiguation, and semantic role labeling, and became progressively larger to include ontology learning and information extraction from large text collections. Nowadays, graph-based solutions also target Web-scale applications such as information propagation in social networks, rumor proliferation, e-reputation, multiple entity detection, language dynamics learning, and future events prediction, to name a few.

The fifteenth edition of the TextGraphs workshop aims to extend the focus on graph-based representations for (1) large-scale knowledge bases and reasoning about them and (2) graph-based and graph-supported machine learning and deep learning methods.

# Workshop Topics

TextGraphs-15 invites submissions on (but not limited to) the following topics:

* Graph-based and graph-supported machine learning methods:

- Graph embeddings and their combinations with text embeddings
- Graph-based and graph-supported deep learning (e.g., graph-based recurrent and recursive networks)
- Probabilistic graphical models and structure learning methods
- Exploration of capabilities and limitations of graph-based methods being applied to neural networks
- Investigation of aspects of neural networks that are (not) susceptible to graph-based analysis

* Graph-based methods for Information Retrieval, Information Extraction and Text Mining:

- Graph-based methods for word sense disambiguation
- Graph-based representations for ontology learning,
- Graph-based strategies for semantic relation identification
- Encoding semantic distances in graphs
- Graph-based techniques for text summarization, simplification, and paraphrasing
- Graph-based techniques for document navigation and visualization
- Reranking with graphs

* New graph-based methods for NLP applications:

- Random walk methods in graphs
- Semi-supervised graph-based methods
- Dynamic graph representations
- Graph kernels

* Graph-based methods for applications on social networks

- Rumor proliferation
- E-reputation
- Multiple identity detection
- Language dynamics studies
- Surveillance systems

* Graph-based methods for NLP and the Semantic Web:

- Representation learning methods for knowledge graphs (i.e., knowledge graph embedding)
- Using graph-based methods to populate ontologies using textual data
- Inducing knowledge of ontologies into NLP applications using graphs
- Merging ontologies with graph-based methods using NLP techniques
