CfP: The First Workshop on Language-driven Deliberation Technology (DELITE2024)

Date: 20 May 2024

Co-located with LREC-COLING 2024, Torino, Italy



Deliberation is ubiquitous: from navigating divergent interests in everyday personal life to reaching consensus in the political decision making process, deliberation describes the communicative process by which a group of people exchange ideas, weigh different arguments, and ultimately reach mutual understanding. In recent years, deliberative processes have gained momentum and shown to improve everyday and political decision-making. For the first time, technological solutions are maturing to the point that they can be deployed to support deliberation. In this context, we want to establish the foundations for collecting and curating data for deliberation domains and for evaluating technology in deliberative settings.

The DELITE workshop provides a forum for presenting new advances in technology around deliberation by addressing researchers in Natural Language Processing, human-computer interaction, corpus linguistics, political science and philosophy, as well as stakeholders and domain experts involved in integrating such technology into decision-making processes.

Topics for DELITE2024 include, but are not limited to:

- Technological advances for public decision making

- Deliberation theory in NLP models

- In-domain versus across domain resources and corpora

- Data-driven theory development

- Integration of language systems into deliberation processes and interfaces

- Technological solutions for online deliberation at scale

- Argument mining for deliberation scenarios

- Visual Analytics for human sensemaking

- Empirical foundations for evaluation

- Integration and reflection on recent advances in LLMs for deliberation scenarios

- Explainability

- Ethical questions

- Addressing bias

Application areas include, but are not limited to:

- Public policy making

- Democratic innovations

- Deliberative democracy

- Political decision making

- Participatory urban planning

- Citizen engagement and co-creation

- Intelligence services and military

- Conflict resolution/mitigation

- Case analysis in healthcare

- Legal decision making

- Scholarly discourse (written and spoken)



Papers must describe original (completed or in progress) and unpublished work. We invite long (8 pages, excluding references) and short papers (4 pages, excluding references). Papers must be anonymized to support double-blind reviewing, i.e., they must not include authors’ names and affiliations and should avoid links to non-anonymized repositories. Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. Upon acceptance, the papers will be given one additional page – for long papers, up to nine (9) pages of content plus unlimited pages for acknowledgments and references and five (5) pages for short papers.

We also invite non-archival, non-anonymous papers (4 pages, including references) for a poster session where ongoing projects are presented in order to serve community building.

Submission of all papers is electronic, using the Softconf START conference management system ( Papers must follow the LREC-COLING 2024 two-column format, using the supplied official style files. The templates can be downloaded from the Style Files and Formatting page provided on the website. Please do not modify these style files, nor should you use templates designed for other conferences. Submissions that do not conform to the required styles, including paper size, margin width, and font size restrictions, will be rejected without review.

The "Share your LRs!" initiative:


When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in the paper or are a new result of your research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC-COLING authors to share the described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.) to enable their reuse and replicability of experiments (including evaluation ones).
