The WNUT workshop focuses on Natural Language Processing applied to noisy user-generated text, such as that found in social media, online reviews, crowdsourced data, web forums, clinical records and language learner essays. The workshop hashtag is #wnut.

We are organizing a shared-task on entity and relation recognition over wet-lab protocols. Data will be released in April and evaluation will be in June 2020 (more information here; sign up for mailing list for future announcements).

Call for Papers

We seek submissions of long and short papers on original and unpublished work (same page limit EMNLP main conference). 1-page abstracts on work-in-progress or work published elsewhere are also welcome and will *not* be included in the conference proceedings. All accepted submissions will be presented as posters. Additionally, selected submissions will be presented orally.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • NLP Preprocessing of Noisy Text
    • Part of speech tagging
    • Named entity tagging, including a wide range of categories, e.g. product names
    • Chunking of user-generated text
    • Parsing
  • Text Normalization and Error Correction
    • Normalizing noisy text for downstream tasks and for human readability
    • Error detection and correction
  • Robustness to Noise, both Natural and Adversarial
  • Multilingual NLP in noisy text
  • Machine Translation of Noisy Text
  • Sentiment analysis
  • Crowdsourcing of text data
  • User prediction, e.g. gender, age, etc
  • Stylistics, e.g. formality, politeness, etc
  • Colloquial language, e.g. code-switching, idiom detection
  • Bilingual translation of the noisy text
  • Paraphrase identification and semantic similarity of short text or noisy text
  • Information extraction from noisy text
  • Domain adaptation to user-generated text
  • Geolocation prediction
  • Global and regional trend detection and event extraction
