Theme: “Fairness in Natural Language Processing”

Computational Social Science and Cultural Analytics

Dialogue and Interactive Systems

Discourse and Pragmatics


Information Extraction

Information Retrieval and Text Mining

Interpretability and Analysis of Models for NLP

Language Modeling

Phonology, Morphology, and Word Segmentation

Question Answering

Resources and Evaluation


Sentiment Analysis, Stylistic Analysis, and Argument Mining

Speech and Multimodality Processing


Syntax: Tagging, Chunking and Parsing

- Theme Track: “Fairness in Natural Language Processing”
The past decade has witnessed the rapid development of natural language processing, which has resulted in many use cases in the real life of people around the world. As a result, there is an increasing need for developing more socially responsible natural language processing techniques to protect fairness.

We are glad to announce that AACL-IJCNLP 2022 will have a theme track on promoting fairness in natural language processing. We invite researchers to submit position, opinion, modeling, and resource papers on the following topics:

Reflection on current progress on improving fairness in natural language processing and how to make meaningful advances in the future.

Discussions on how computational linguistic research could make (and has made) both positive and negative impact on fairness and novel approaches to fostering the positive while mitigating any negative impact.

Techniques for measuring fairness in natural language processing quantitatively and qualitatively.

Techniques for solving constrained optimization problems with fairness constraints for natural language processing.

Techniques for minimizing harmful effects of natural language processing applications against vulnerable populations.

Automatic evaluation methods to assess fairness in natural language processing.

Empirical investigations of fairness in natural language processing.

Datasets, resources and tools that focus on promoting fairness in natural language processing.

We anticipate having a special session for this theme at the conference and a best Thematic Paper Award in addition to the traditional Best Paper Awards.
