# Workshop Description

TextGraphs, now going on for more than a decade, is a workshop series promoting the synergies between methods of the field of Graph Theory and Natural Language Processing.

The fourteenth edition of the TextGraphs workshop aims to extend the focus on issues and solutions for large-scale graphs, such as those derived for Web-scale knowledge acquisition or social networks, and graph-based and graph-supported machine learning and deep learning methods.

# Workshop Topics

TextGraphs invites the submission of long and short papers on original and unpublished research covering all aspects of graph-based natural language processing. Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited to, the following (in alphabetical order):

* 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, Infomation 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

# Submission
