SDP 2020 : 1st Workshop on Scholarly Document Processing and Shared Tasks @ EMNLP

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Event Date: November 11, 2020 - November 12, 2020
Submission Deadline: July 15, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: August 17, 2020

In addition to the long-standing challenge faced by scholars of keeping up with the growing literature in their own and related fields, they must now compete with malign pseudo-science and disinformation in informing public policy and behavior. This has stimulated workshops and research focused on enhancing search, retrieval, summarization, and analysis of scholarly documents. However, the general research community on scholarly document processing remains fragmented, and efforts towards natural language understanding of scholarly text that is central to vastly improve all the said downstream applications are not widespread.

To address these gaps, we, organizers of BIRNDL and WOSP workshops, propose the 1st Workshop on Scholarly Document Processing. We seek to reach to the broader NLP and AI/ML community to pool the distributed efforts to improve scholarly document understanding and enable intelligent access to the published research. SDP will comprise a research track and the 6thCL-SciSumm Shared Task with new tasks geared towards easier access to scientific methods and results.

Call for Papers

We invite submissions from all communities interested in natural language processing, information retrieval, and data mining problems in scientific documents; and in processing scientific documents for easier access to various audiences. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Information extraction, text mining and parsing of scholarly literature
  • Reproducibility and peer review
  • Lay Summarization (i.e., summaries created for non-experts) of individual and collections of scholarly documents
  • Discourse modeling and argument mining
  • Summarization and question-answering for scholarly documents
  • Semantic and network-based indexing, search and navigation in structured text
  • Graph analysis/mining including citation and co-authorship networks
  • Analysing and mining of citation contexts for document understanding and retrieval
  • New scholarly language resources and evaluation
  • Connecting and interlinking publications, data, tweets, blogs or their parts
  • Disambiguation, metadata extraction, enrichment, and data quality assurance for scholarly documents
  • Bibliometrics, scientometrics, and altmetrics approaches and applications
  • Other aspects of scientific workflows including open access/science, and research assessment
  • Infrastructures for accessing scientific publications and/or research data
