Call For Papers

The 8th Workshop on Noisy User-generated Text (WNUT@COLING 2022)

The WNUT Workshop will be collocated with COLING 2022 (Hybrid - Gyeongju, Republic of Korea). The website for the workshop is at:

The WNUT workshop focuses on Natural Language Processing applied to noisy user-generated text, such as that found in social media, online reviews, crowdsourced data, web forums, clinical records, and language learner essays.

We seek submissions of long and short papers on original and unpublished work (same format and page limit as COLING main conference). All accepted submissions will be presented as posters. Additionally, selected submissions will be presented orally. We have Best Paper Awards sponsored by Megagon Labs this year.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* NLP Preprocessing of Noisy Text
- Part of speech tagging
- Named entity tagging, including a wide range of categories, e.g. product names
- Chunking of user-generated text
- Parsing
* Text Normalization and Error Correction
- Normalizing noisy text for downstream tasks and for human readability
- Error detection and correction
* Robustness to Noise, both Natural and Adversarial
* Multilingual NLP in noisy text
* Machine Translation of Noisy Text
* Sentiment analysis
* Crowdsourcing of text data
* User prediction, e.g. gender, age, etc
* Stylistics, e.g. formality, politeness, etc
* Colloquial language, e.g. code-switching, idiom detection
* Bilingual translation of the noisy text
* Paraphrase identification and semantic similarity of short text or noisy text
* Information extraction from noisy text
* Domain adaptation to user-generated text
* Geolocation prediction
* Global and regional trend detection and event extraction
* Detecting rumors, contradictory information, sarcasm, and humor on social media
* Extracting user demographics, profiles, and major life events
* Temporal aspects of user-generated content (resolving time expressions, concept drift, diachronic analyses, etc...)


* August 19, 2022: Submission Deadline (dual-submission w/ COLING main conference allowed)
* September 7, 2022: Acceptance Notification
* September 14, 2022: Camera-ready Deadline
* October 17, 2022: Workshop Day


Tim Baldwin (University of Melbourne)
