Meeting Description:

ACL 2012: 3rd workshop on the People's Web Meets NLP: Collaboratively Constructed Semantic Resources and their Applications to NLP
Jeju, Republic of Korea
July 12-13, 2012

The topics addressed will include but are not limited to:

- Using collaboratively constructed resources and the information mined from them for NLP tasks (cf. Section 'References'), such as word sense disambiguation, semantic role labeling, information retrieval, text categorization, information extraction, question answering, etc.
- Mining social and collaborative content for constructing structured lexical semantic resources, annotated corpora and the corresponding tools
- Analyzing the structure of collaboratively constructed resources related to their use in NLP
- Computational linguistics studies of collaboratively constructed resources, such as wiki-based platforms or folksonomies
- Structural and semantic interoperability of collaboratively constructed resources with conventional semantic resources and between themselves
- Mining multilingual information from collaboratively constructed resources
- Using special features of collaboratively constructed resources to create novel resource types, for example revision-based corpora, simplified versions of resources, etc.
- Quality and reliability of collaboratively constructed lexical semantic resources and annotated corpora
- Hands-on practical knowledge on utilization of CSR APIs and tools or designing crowdsourcing procedures for high quality outcomes

Call for Papers:

Recent recognition of Collaboratively Constructed Semantic Resources (CSRs) has substantially contributed to the research in natural language processing (NLP). The 3rd workshop 'The People's Web meets NLP' invites both long and short papers on various CSRs-related topics. Preference will be given to submissions on CSRs' application to NLP tasks, which is the special interest of this workshop edition. We also welcome tutorial-like submissions on using the software for CSRs to facilitate their wide adoption by the NLP community.

Though the workshop welcomes any CSRs-related topics, preference will be given to submissions on CSRs' application to NLP tasks, which is the special interest of this workshop edition. Thereby, we encourage the participation of researchers with various backgrounds: from computational linguistics (e.g. parsing and discourse analysis) to NLP applications and other areas that might benefit from collaboratively constructed semantic resources. Given that we receive a sufficient number of tutorial-like submissions, a dedicated presentation session for those will be scheduled.

Submission deadline for full and short papers is March 18, 2012.
