Softconf page of the workshop:


We invite contributions from researchers in computer science, NLP, ML, DL, AI, socio-political sciences, conflict analysis and forecasting, peace studies, as well as computational social science scholars involved in the collection and utilization of socio-political event data. This includes (but is not limited to) the following topics

1) Extracting events and their arguments such as time and location in and beyond a sentence or document, event coreference resolution.

2) Research in NLP technologies in relation to event detection: geocoding, temporal reasoning, argument structure detection, syntactic and semantic analysis of event structures, text classification, for event type detection, learning event-related lexica, event co-reference resolution, fake news analysis, and others with a focus on real or potential event detection applications.

3) New datasets, training data collection, and annotation for event information.

4) Event-event relations, e.g., subevents, main events, spatio-temporal relations, causal relations.

5) Event dataset evaluation in light of reliability and validity metrics.

6) Defining, populating, and facilitating event schemas and ontologies.

7) Automated tools and pipelines for event collection related tasks.

8) Lexical, syntactic, semantic, discursive, and pragmatic aspects of event manifestation.

9) Methodologies for development, evaluation, and analysis of event datasets.

10) Applications of event databases, e.g. early warning, conflict prediction, and policymaking.

11) Estimating what is missing in event datasets using internal and external information.

12) Detection of new and emerging socio-political event (SPE) types, e.g. creative protests.

13) Release of new event datasets.

14) Bias and fairness of the sources and event datasets.

15) Ethics, misinformation, privacy, and fairness concerns pertaining to event datasets.

16) Copyright issues on event dataset creation, dissemination, and sharing.

17) Cross-lingual, multilingual and multimodal aspects in event analysis.

18) Resources and approaches related to contentious politics around climate change.
