First Call for Papers

(Apologies for multiple postings)

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in algorithms that learn and use continuous representations for words, phrases, or documents in many natural language processing applications. Among many others, influential proposals that illustrate this trend include latent Dirichlet allocation, neural network based language models and spectral methods. These approaches are motivated by improving the generalization power of the discrete standard models, by dealing with the data sparsity issue and by efficiently handling a wide context. Despite the success of single word vector space models, they are limited since they do not capture compositionality. This prevents them from gaining a deeper understanding of the semantics of longer phrases, sentences and documents.

Regarding this issue, some pertinent questions arise: should word/phrase/sentence representations be of the same sort? Could different linguistic levels require different modelling approaches ? Is compositionality determined by syntax, and if so, how do we learn/define it? Should word representations be fixed and obtained distributionally, or should the encoding be variable? Should word representations be task-specific, or should they be general?

In this workshop, we invite submissions of papers on continuous vector space models for natural language processing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Neural networks
* Spectral methods
* Distributional semantic models
* Language modeling for automatic speech recognition, statistical machine
translation, and information retrieval
* Automatic annotation of texts
* Phrase and sentence-level distributional representations
* The role of syntax in compositional models
* Formal and distributional semantic models
* Language modeling for logical and natural reasoning
* Integration of distributional representations with other models
* Multi-modal learning for distributional representations
* Knowledge base embedding

INVITED SPEAKERS

The workshop will showcase presentations from 4 to 6 keynote speakers. The confirmed speakers are:

* Yoav Goldberg (Bar Ilan University)
* Jason Weston (Facebook AI Research)
* Kyunghyun Cho (Université de Montréal)

SUBMISSION INFORMATION

Authors should submit a full paper of up to 8 pages in electronic, PDF format, with up to 2 additional pages for references. The reported research should be substantially original. The papers will be presented orally or as posters.

All submissions must be in PDF format and must follow the ACL 2015 formatting requirements (see the ACL 2015 Call For Papers http://acl2015.org/call_for_papers.html). Reviewing will be double-blind, and thus no author information should be included in the papers; self-reference should be avoided as well. Submissions must be made through the Softconf website set up for this workshop:

https://www.softconf.com/acl2015/CVSC/

Accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, where no distinction will be made between papers presented orally or as posters.
