International Conference on Speech and Computer – Special Session: Natural Language Processing for Social Media Analysis

Date: 12-Sep-2017 – 16-Sep-2017
Location: Hatfield, England, United Kingdom
Web Site:

Call Deadline: 12-Mar-2017

Meeting Description:

The exploitation of natural language from social media data is an intriguing task in the fields of text mining and natural language processing (NLP), with plenty of applications in social sciences and social media analytics. In this special session, we call for research papers in the broader field of NLP techniques for social media analysis. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to): sentiment analysis in social media and beyond (e.g., stance identification, sarcasm detection, opinion mining), computational sociolinguistics (e.g., identification of demographic information such as gender, age), and NLP tools for social media mining (e.g., topic modeling for social media data, text categorization and clustering for social media).

ACL 2017 Student Research Workshop (SRW)



The Student Research Workshop (SRW) will be held in conjunction with ACL 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.


Main Conference: July 30 – August 4, 2017

Paper Submission Deadline:  April 21, 2017


I. General Invitation for Submissions



The ACL 2017 Student Research Workshop (SRW) provides a forum for student researchers who are investigating various areas related to Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. The workshop provides an excellent opportunity for student participants to present their work and receive valuable feedback from the international research community as well as from selected panelists – experienced researchers, specifically assigned according to the topic of their work, who will prepare in-depth comments and questions in advance of the presentation. The workshop’s goal is to aid students at multiple stages of their education: from those in the final stages of undergraduate training to those active with graduate thesis research.


The SRW invites two types of submissions:


* Research Papers: completed work or work-in-progress along with preliminary results. We encourage submissions from Ph.D students, as well as Masters or advanced undergraduate students.


* Research Proposals: for advanced Masters and Ph.D. students who have decided on a thesis topic and are interested in feedback about their proposal and ideas about future directions for their work.


This year we provide two mentoring programs:


* Pre-submission Mentoring: the goal is to improve presentation of the student’s work, not to critique the work itself. Mentors will provide feedback in the format of guidelines and suggestions to improve the overall writing.


* Mentoring for Accepted Papers: mentors will be responsible for providing feedback to students and preparing in-depth comments and questions prior to the workshop presentation.


The SRW invites papers on topics related to computational linguistics, including but not limited to:


Cognitive modeling and psycholinguistics

Corpus development and evaluation

Dialog and interactive systems

Discourse and pragmatics

Document analysis including text categorization, topic models, and retrieval

Natural language generation

Information extraction, text mining, and question answering

Language-inclusive multimodal integration

Linguistic theories for NLP

Low-resource or endangered languages

Machine learning

Machine translation

Mathematical models of language


Phonology, morphology, and word segmentation

Resources and evaluation


Sentiment analysis and opinion mining

Social media: Twitter, blogs, discussion forums, and other social media


Speech, prosody, and spoken dialog


Tagging, chunking, syntax, and parsing

Vision, robots, and other grounding applications
