RepL4NLP 2022 : RepL4NLP 2022 : Call for papers: Representation Learning for NLP Workshop (ACL 2022 workshop)
Call For Papers
The 7th Workshop on Representation Learning for NLP (https://sites.google.com/view/repl4nlp2022), co-located with ACL 2022 in Dublin, Ireland, invites papers of a theoretical or experimental nature describing recent advances in vector space models of meaning, compositionality, and the application of deep neural networks and spectral methods to NLP. Relevant topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
Developing new representations: at the document, sentence, word, or sub-word level, using language model objectives, word embeddings, spectral methods, etc.
Evaluating existing representations: probing representations for generalization, compositionality & robustness, adversarial evaluation, analysis of representations.
Efficient learning of representations and inference: with respect to training and inference time, model size, amount of training data, etc.
Beyond English / text representations: multi-modal, cross-lingual, knowledge-informed representations, structure-informed representations (syntax, morphology)
Deadline for submission: February 28th, 2022
Notification of acceptance: March 26th, 2022
Deadline for camera-ready version: April 10th, 2022
Early registration deadline (ACL '20): To be announced
Workshop: May 26th, 2022
All deadlines are 11:59 pm UTC -12h ("anywhere on Earth").
We solicit three categories of papers: regular workshop papers, extended abstracts and cross-submissions. Only regular workshop papers will be included in the proceedings as archival publications, and only regular workshop papers will be eligible for best paper prizes. All three categories of papers may be long (maximum 8 pages plus references) or short (maximum 4 pages plus references). All paper submissions are done via openreview at: https://openreview.net/group?id=aclweb.org/ACL/2022/Workshop/RepL4NLP. We follow ARR submission guidelines. For more information about templates, guidelines, and instructions, see the ARR CFP guidelines. We encourage authors to include a broader impact and ethical concerns statement, following ARR Ethics Policy from the main conference.
Regular Workshop Papers
Authors should submit a long paper of up to 8 pages, with up to 2 additional pages for references, or a short paper of up to 4 pages, with up to 2 additional pages for references, following the ACL 2022 formatting requirements (see the ACL 2022 Call For Papers for reference: https://acl2022.org/calls/papers/). The reported research should be substantially original. Accepted papers will be presented as posters. Reviewing will be double-blind, and thus no author information should be included in the papers; self-reference that identifies the authors should be avoided or anonymized. Accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings.
Best Paper Prizes
Thanks to generous support from our sponsors, we will be awarding prizes to the three best regular workshop paper submissions as selected by our program committee, to be presented at the workshop. Both long and short regular submissions will be eligible for prizes. Best papers may be given the opportunity for a brief “lightning” talk to introduce their work.
Preliminary but interesting ideas or results that have not been published before may be submitted as extended abstracts. Accepted extended abstracts will be presented as posters, and included in the workshop program and handbook, but will not be included in the workshop proceedings (and are not eligible for best paper prizes).
Extended abstract submissions are therefore ideal for preliminary work which would benefit from exposure but is not ready for publication. Authors should submit a long extended abstract of up to 8 pages, with up to 2 additional pages for references, or a short extended abstract of up to 4 pages, with up to 2 additional pages for references. Submissions should follow the ACL 2022 formatting requirements (see the ACL 2022 Call For Papers for reference: https://www.2022.aclweb.org/callpapers). Reviewing will be double-blind, and thus no author information should be included in the papers; self-reference that identifies the authors should be avoided or anonymized.
In addition to previously unpublished work, we also solicit papers on relevant topics that have appeared in a non-NLP venue (e.g., workshop or conference papers at NeurIPS or ICML). Accepted cross-submissions will be presented as posters, with an indication of original venue, but will not be included in the workshop program and handbook, or the workshop proceedings (and are not eligible for best paper prizes). Cross-submissions are ideal for related work which would benefit from exposure to the RepL4NLP audience. Submission length is determined by the original venue. Interested authors should submit their papers in PDF format through the RepL4NLP submission portal with a note on the original venue. Papers in this category do not need to follow the ACL format and selection will be solely determined by the organising committee.
