Call For Papers

CRAC 2023, the Sixth Workshop on Computational Models of Reference, Anaphora and Coreference, will be held at EMNLP 2023 in Singapore on December 6 and 7.

About the workshop
The CRAC workshop is a forum where work on all aspects of computational work on anaphora resolution and annotation, including both coreference and types of anaphora such as bridging references resolution and discourse deixis, can be presented.
Since 2016, the yearly CRAC (and its predecessor, CORBON) workshop has become the primary forum for researchers interested in the computational modeling of reference, anaphora, and coreference to discuss and publish their results. Over the years, this workshop series was held at major NLP conferences and has successfully organized six shared tasks, which stimulated interest in new problems in this area of research, facilitated the discussion and dissemination of results on new problems/directions (e.g., multimodal reference resolution).
We are interested in your work on any aspect of theoretical or applied computational work on anaphora/coreference resolution. Some topics to suggest:
– coreference resolution for less-researched languages
– annotation and interpretation of anaphoric relations, including relations other than identity coreference (e.g., bridging references)
– investigation of difficult cases of anaphora and their resolution
– coreference resolution in noisy data (e.g. in social media)
– new applications of coreference resolution
– Universal Anaphora
– CorefUD

CRAC 2023 Shared Task on Multilingual Coreference Resolution
The workshop will also feature presentation of the results of our 2nd Shared Task on Multilingual Coreference Resolution, based on 17 coreference datasets for 12 languages harmonized under a common CoNLL-U scheme.
Important dates
– Workshop papers due: September 1, 2023
– Notification of acceptance: October 6, 2023
– Camera-ready papers due: October 18, 2023
– Workshop date: December 6–7, 2023

Paper categories
– Research papers (theoretical computational linguistics, empirical/data-driven approaches, paradigms/techniques/strategies, analysis papers, resources and evaluation, negative result)
– Survey papers (surveys a popular or emerging area of anaphora/coreference resolution)
– Position papers (presents one side of an arguable opinion about an issue)
– Challenge papers (a challenge to the field in terms of setting out a goal for the next 5/10/20 years)
– Demo papers (systems, tools, visualizations)
– Extended abstracts (describe work in progress)

Double submission
We allow for double submissions. Please indicate during submission to which other conference or workshop your work has been submitted.

We also invite authors of papers accepted to Findings of the main conferences (e.g. ACL, NAACL, EMNLP) to present their work at the workshop. It these papers were removed from the Findings, they can be included in the proceedings of the workshop without additional review.

Submission link
Please submit your paper to SoftConf. All submissions must follow the EMNLP 2023 formatting instructions.

You can find all other important information on the CRAC 2023 website.

See you at CRAC 2023!
