We wish to invite papers on new research relating to Named Entities (NEs),
their recognition (NER) or the extraction of NE relations (NERelX), one of
the most widely studied areas in information extraction as they are useful
for several NLP applications (information retrieval, question-answering,
machine translation, summarisation, etc.).

NEs include proper nouns but also entities expressed through other nominal
expressions, such as multi-word units, classified into types which may be
coarse or fine-grained according to domain or user requirements. Despite
years of research, NER still includes several challenges, such as correct
classification, resolution of ambiguity, synonym detection, coreference and
variability (e.g., acronyms, orthography). Several methods have been used to
improve the prediction of correct classes, ranging from rule-based and
dictionary-based approaches, to semi-supervised, and unsupervised machine
learning techniques. Evaluation depends on the existence of gold (or
silver) standards and domain specificity (e.g. genes, proteins, symptoms in
health records, etc). Evaluation of NREelX is even more complex when
considered in the end-to-end case. How can we evaluate NERelX while taking
into account the errors coming from previous analysis steps?


We invite submissions on all topics relating to NE, NER and NE relation
extraction, including:

- Definition and typology of NEs, multi-word units

- Domain and document adaptation methods in NER (abstracts, full
papers, wikipedia, domain specific documents, new social media like
twitter, online threads, spoken documents, etc.)

- Detecting NE spans and structural analysis of NEs (NE parsing)

- Cross-document coreference and entity linking

- NE Tracking through time, social or geographical groups, intra- and
inter-document NE tracking etc.

- Normalisation aspects of NE (coreference, disambiguation)

- Recognising NEs in general language and special domains

- Guidelines and annotation tools of NE resources, NE corpora

- Cross-language aspects in NE extraction

- Evaluation, comparison and critical assessment of tools

- NE and NLP applications dependant or based on NEs
