Call For Papers

Call For Papers
==================

The Second Workshop on e-Commerce and NLP (ECNLP 2)
Co-located with The Web Conference 2020 in Taipei, Taiwan (April 2020)
https://sites.google.com/view/ecnlp/www-2020

Workshop
========

NLP and IR have been powering e-commerce applications since the early days of the fields. Today, NLP and IR already play a significant role in e-commerce tasks, including product search, recommender systems, product question answering, machine translation, sentiment analysis, product description and review summarization, and customer review processing, amongst many other tasks. With the exploding popularity of chatbots and shopping assistants – both text- and voice-based – NLP, IR, question answering, and dialogue systems research is poised to transform e-commerce once again, but requires a forum where new and unfinished ideas could be discussed.

Co-located with The Web Conference 2020, the ECNLP workshop will provide a venue for the dissemination of NLP and IR research results related to e-commerce and online shopping, bringing together researchers from both academia and industry. The workshop welcomes submission of late-breaking and preliminary research results, as well as opinion and position papers.

ECNLP invites quality research contributions in different formats:
- Original long research papers (10 pages plus references and appendix)
- Original short research papers (6 pages plus references and appendix)
- Position and opinion papers (4 pages)

All submissions will undergo a peer review process, and accepted submissions will be presented at the workshop either as oral presentation or as poster.

Workshop topics include but are not limited to:

- Product classification and cataloguing
- NER for products, brands, attributes, and part names
