2nd Call for Papers:
Colocated with EACL 2017 — http://multiword.sf.net/mwe2017
Endorsed by ACL SIGLEX — the Special Interest Group on the Lexicon of the ACL
We invite papers on major challenges in Multiword Expressions (MWEs) processing focusing on research related (but not limited) to the following topics:
— Manually/automatically constructed lexical resources and representation issues
— MWE annotation in corpora/ treebanks
— MWEs in non-standard language
— Original MWE discovery/in-context identification methods
— MWE processing in syntactic/semantic frameworks and end-user applications
— Orchestration of MWE processing with respect to applications
— Evaluation of MWE processing techniques
— Models of first and second language acquisition of MWEs
— Theoretical, psycholinguistic and crosslinguistic studies on MWEs
MWE 2017 hosts a special track for shared task papers comparing and evaluating systems for the automatic identification of verbal MWEs in sentences — see the separate call: http://multiword.sourceforge.net/sharedtask2017/ .
A volume with selected papers is planned within the book series Phraseology and MultiWord Expressions of Language Science Press.
Long papers (8 content pages + references): Long papers should report on original, solid and finished research including new experimental results, resources and/or techniques.
Short papers (4 content pages + references): Short papers should report on small experiments, focused contributions, ongoing research, negative results and/or philosophical discussion.
Shared task track:
Papers (4 content pages + references) should describe the approach implemented to solve the problem. They may include references and links to more detailed descriptions in other documents.
(Unlimited number of reference pages plus one extra page for the final versions).
Main track submissions will be double-blind and will be presented orally or as posters according to the nature rather than on the quality of the work.
Shared track submissions, presented as posters, will be double-blind and will be reviewed by the shared task organizers and participants. Acceptance depends on the quality of the paper rather than on the reported results.
EACL 2017 LaTeX templates should be used (a condition for accepting the paper for the reviewing process). Final versions will be submitted both in PDF and source LaTeX formats. Templates can be retrieved from: http://eacl2017.org/index.php/calls/call-for-papers
The link to submit a paper will be published later on the website of MWE 2017.
