Graph-based Methods for Natural Language Processing

TextGraphs-8

http://www.textgraphs.org/ws13


INTRODUCTION
-------------

For the past 7 years, the series of TextGraphs workshops have exposed and
encouraged the synergy between the field of Graph Theory (NLP) and Natural
Language Processing (NLP). The mix between the two started small, with graph
theoretical framework providing efficient and elegant solutions for NLP
applications that focused on single documents for part-of-speech tagging,
word sense disambiguation and semantic role labelling, got progressively
larger with ontology learning and information extraction from large text
collections, and have reached web scale through the new fields of research
that focus on information propagation in social networks, rumor
proliferation, e-reputation, multiple entity detection, language dynamics
learning and future events prediction to name but a few.


The 8th edition of the TextGraphs workshop would be a new step in the
series, focused on issues and solutions for large-scale graphs, such as
those derived for web-scale knowledge acquisition or social networks. We aim
to encourage the description of novel NLP problems or applications that have
emerged in recent years which can be addressed with graph-based solutions,
as well as novel graph-based methods that can be applied to known NLP tasks.
Bringing together researchers interested in Graph Theory applied to Natural
Language Processing will provide an environment for further integration of
graph-based solutions into NLP tasks, and a deeper understanding of new
theories of graph-based algorithms is likely to help create new approaches
and widen the usage of graphs for NLP applications.

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO
-------------------------------------------

Graph-based methods for Information Retrieval, Information Extraction and
Text Mining
New graph-based methods for NLP applications
Graph-based methods for applications on social networks
