2nd Symposium on NLP for Social Good (NSG 2024)
Date: 25th-26th April, 2024 (Hybrid Event in the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom)

About NSG 2024:
Artificial intelligence (AI), specifically, Natural Language Processing (NLP) is being hailed as a new breeding ground for immense innovation potential. While scholars believe that NLP has enormous potential for excessive growth, one question remains: how can it be used for the better welfare of the society? Researchers believe that NLP-based technologies could help to solve societal issues such as equality and inclusion, education, health, and hunger, and climate action etc. and many more. The field is focused on delivering positive social impact in accordance with the priorities outlined in the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Tackling these questions requires a concerted, collaborative effort across all sectors of society. The Symposium on NLP for Social Good is a novel effort that aims to enable NLP researchers and scholars from interdisciplinary fields who want to think about the societal implications of their work for solving humanitarian and environmental challenges. The symposium aims to support fundamental research and engineering efforts and empower the social sector with tools and resources, while collaborating with partners from all sectors to maximise effect in solving problems within public health, nature & society, climate & energy, accessibility, crisis response etc.

Call for Papers:
NSG 2024 invites authors to submit papers on research that exploits different NLP techniques to address different social issues (e.g. education, law, healthcare, climate change or any priorities in SDG).

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Applications and solutions on different topics corresponding to NLP for Social Good (NSG) theme.

* Natural Language Interfaces and Interaction: design and implementation of Natural Language Interfaces, user studies with human participants on issues related to NSG topics.

* Large Language Models & Vision Language Models: Opportunities and Risks of using LLMs and VLMs in NSG.

* eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI): Scope of Interpretability in NSG topics.

* Corpus/Dataset Analysis: Corpus or dataset collection or analysis for NSG related topics

* Multi-modal solutions to the theme of NSG.

*Unique proposition and contribution in any 17 goals of SDG using NLP.
