Call For Papers

1st Workshop on Natural Scientific Language Processing and
Research Knowledge Graphs (NSLP 2024)

26 or 27 May 2024 (tbc)
Hersonissos, Crete, Greece
(co-located with ESWC 2024)

Scientific research is almost exclusively published in unstructured text formats, which are not readily machine-readable. While technological approaches can help to get this flood of scientific information and new knowledge under control, the development of such technologies is very complex in practice and hinders the creation of infrastructures and systems to track research and assist the scientific community with applications such as dedicated scientific search engines and recommender systems. The 1st Workshop on Natural Scientific Language Processing and Research Knowledge Graphs (NSLP) aims to bring together researchers working on the processing, analysis, transformation and making-use-of scientific language and RKGs including all relevant sub-topics. NSLP 2024 is a full-day workshop co-located with ESWC 2024 to be held in Crete, Greece, in May 2024. The workshop will consist of two keynote speakers and two shared tasks, as well as presentations and posters of accepted papers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Research/Scientific Knowledge Graphs (RKGs/SKGs) and other forms of Structured Scientific Knowledge Representation
Information Extraction for RKGs/SKGs
Question Answering over RKGs/SKGs
Scientific LLMs: LLMs for Natural Scientific Language Processing
Natural Scientific Language Processing (monolingual, cross-lingual, multilingual)
Language Resources and Language Technologies for Natural Scientific Language Processing
Information Extraction from Scholarly Publications
Classification of Scholarly Publications (document collections, individual documents, parts of documents)
Summarisation of Scholarly Articles
Scholarly Information Retrieval and Scientific Search Engines
Digital Libraries of Scholarly Information
Metadata and Cataloging
Bibliometrics and Scientometrics
Domain-specific Adaptation of Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods for NSLP purposes
Micropublications and Nanopublications

Important dates

Deadline for submissions: March 7, 2024
Notification of acceptance: April 4, 2024
Deadline for camera-ready papers: April 18, 2024


The NSLP workshop invites submissions of regular long papers (up to 15 pages, Springer LNCS style), position papers, and short papers (up to 8 pages, Springer LNCS style) presenting negative results, in-progress projects, and demos. We especially encourage submissions from junior researchers and students from diverse backgrounds.

We’ll attempt to publish the proceedings of the workshop in an Open Access book volume.

Shared tasks

The workshop will offer two shared tasks:

FoRC: Field of Research Classification of Scholarly Publications
SOMD: Software Mention Detection in Scholarly Publications

The NSLP 2024 website provides more information on the shared tasks.
