Call For Papers
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
