Call For Papers
We invite papers describing original, completed or ongoing, unpublished research. We welcome paper submissions, in theory, methodology, as well as resources and applications in all areas related to Financial Natural Language Processing and Financial Text Analysis. We also welcome submissions on negative results as well as submissions highlighting challenges faced in industrial or academic settings.
We encourage submissions on topics that include, but are not limited to, the following:
Applying core technologies on financial narratives: morphological analysis, disambiguation, tokenization, part-of-speech tagging, named entity recognition, chunking, parsing, semantic role labelling, sentiment analysis, document quality and advanced readability metrics, etc.
Using NLP to detect misreporting in relation to diversity and wellbeing on issues related to gender, ethnicity, women at work as well as employee mental health and stability.
Financial narrative resources: dictionaries, annotated data, tools and technologies etc.
Summarisation across domains and sources that are related to finance (e.g. company blogs, product reviews, market briefs, etc.), this includes financial multilingual and cross-lingual summarisation using single-document summarisation, multi-document summarisation, summarisation evaluation, headline generation, cross-domain/cross-topic summarisation.
Analysis of Online Social Networks for detection of public opinions towards financial events.
Multilingual analysis, describing the different regulatory regimes within which companies operate internationally.
Ongoing research and preliminary results
Negative results, for example techniques and methodologies that work for certain languages but not on others. Other venues could be showing that state-of-the-art technologies such as BERT could fail on certain tasks or languages.
We are pleased to announce that FNP 2022 will be supported by the European Language Resources Association (ELRA) http://www.elra.info/en/.
The winning team of each of our shared task competitions will win one free registration generously provided by ELRA to attend LREC 2022 and present their work at the workshop in Marseille, France.
