Call For Papers

This is the 8th edition of a popular workshop, which is co-located with ACL 2015
Beijing (China).

We solicit contributions including but not limited to the following topics.
* Building Comparable Corpora;
* Applications of comparable corpora;
* Mining from Comparable Corpora;

A new feature this year is a shared task. This will be the first evaluation exercise on the identification of comparable texts: given a large multilingual collection of texts (we will be using Wikipedia documents in several languages), the task is to identify the most similar texts across languages. Evaluation will be done by measuring precision, recall and F-measure on links between pages, with a gold standard based on actual inter-language links.
