Call For Papers

IEEE International Workshop on Empirical Methods for Recognizing Inference in TExt

In conjunction with IEEE IRI 2012

Las Vegas, USA
August 8, 2012

Textual Entailment and Paraphrase are inference tasks of natural language processing (NLP) for automatically detecting entailment, paraphrase, and contradiction in texts. The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for original high-quality research contributions on empirical methods for recognizing inference in text as well as multidisciplinary research opportunities.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to practical areas that span a variety of aspects of empirical methods for recognizing inference in text including:

Guidelines, standards, best practices and models for the construction and annotation of Textual Entailment datasets
Evaluation of Knowledge Resources for Textual Entailment
Recognizing Inference in Text
Recognizing Textual Entailment
Question Answering
Information Retrieval
Information Extraction
Text Summarization
Text Mining
Natural Language Processing Applications
Sentiment Analysis
Opinion Mining


Authors are invited to submit a paper up to 8 pages (in English) in double-column IEEE format following the submission guidelines available at the IRI-2012 web page. Papers must be original and not submitted to or accepted by any other conference or journal. An electronic version (PDF format) of the full paper should be submitted by the paper submission deadline to EasyChair ( All submissions will be acknowledged.
