MLP 2017 Call for Abstracts

The First Workshop on Multi-Language Processing in a Globalising World (MLP2017), organized by ADAPT Centre, Dublin City University (DCU), Ireland, will be held at DCU on September 4–5, 2017.

Globalisation has, on the one hand, brought us significant growth in free international trade and cross-cultural communication, as well as access to newly-developed technology, media, education, healthcare, consumer goods, etc. On the other hand, it may have negative impacts on local societies, such as cultural homogenisation. To embrace cultural diversity and multilingual phenomena, experts with research interests in different languages are invited to participate in this workshop. This international workshop will be organised as a forum and we invite natural language processing researchers and linguists to come together to discuss the current status and future directions of research in multilingualism and minority languages in this globalising world.

The workshop aims to provide a research forum dedicated to state-of-the-art methods and techniques on multi-language and cross-language processing and exploring the use of such technologies in specific tasks. The workshop will solicit original and ongoing research contributions related to the theme, which includes but are not limited to:

Theoretical and applied linguistic research for multilinguality and minority languages

Text encoding theory and transcoding techniques

Resource construction, such as multilingual corpora and corpora for minority languages

Speech, lexical, syntactic, semantic analytics for multiple languages or minority languages

Cross-language adaptation for natural language processing

Multi-language, cross-language and minority language processing methods and applications in machine translation, speech recognition, information retrieval etc.

Evaluation metrics for multi-language, cross-language and minority language processing

Multi-language, cross-language and minority language processing for social media and user generated content

Deep learning and expressions for multi-language processing

Minority languages in emergency responses and security/disaster management

Multi-language or cross-language named entity recognition, entity relation extraction and event extraction

Multi-language or cross-language linked data or knowledge graph

Multi-language or cross-language anaphora resolution and discourse analysis

Multi-language or cross-language sentiment analysis

Multi-language or cross-language text classification and generation

Transliteration and machine translation

The language of the Workshop is English. Abstract submissions may include research results as well as work in progress. Submissions must have a clear focus on specific issues pertaining to and cross-language processing, including minority language processing. Descriptions of commercial systems are welcome, provided the authors are willing to discuss the details of their work. The number of pages should be limited to 1–2 pages.

We suggest you structure your abstract using the following headings but it is not mandatory:
