DEADLINE EXTENSION: 1st ACL Workshop on Gender Bias for Natural Language Processing

****DEADLINE EXTENSION OF WORKSHOP PAPERS TO 3rd MAY***

1st ACL Workshop on Gender Bias for Natural Language Processing

1st Workshop on Gender Bias for Natural Language Processing

2nd August, Florence

Gender and other demographic biases in machine learned models are of increasing interest to the scientific community and industry. Models of natural language are highly affected by such biases, and biases in widely used products such as Google Translate and Alexa are understandably causing distrust and alarm in the general public. Research into how to fairly represent gender in natural language models is emerging. Examples of this are approaches such as data curation which aims to reduce model bias via changes in training and evaluation data or approaches that are changing learning algorithms themselves. While these approaches show promising results, there is more to do to solve identified and future bias issues. In order to make progress as a field, we need standard tasks which quantify bias.

EMNLP-IJCNLP 2019: Call for System Demonstrations

EMNLP-IJCNLP 2019 – Call for System Demonstrations

2019 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing and 9th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (EMNLP-IJCNLP), Hong Kong, CHINA November 3-7, 2019.

https://emnlp-ijcnlp2019.org/

The EMNLP 2019 System Demonstration Program Committee invites proposals for the Demonstrations Program. Submissions may range from early research prototypes to mature production-ready systems. Of particular interest are publicly available open-source or open-access systems. We would like to encourage demonstrations of industrial systems as long as they prove technologically innovative given the current state of the art of theory and applied research in computational linguistics. Areas of interest include all topics related to theoretical and applied computational linguistics, such as (but not limited to) the topics listed in the conference call for papers.

The 8th Workshop on Patent and Scientific Literature Translation (PSLT 2019)
DCU, Dublin, Ireland, 20th August 2019
—————————————————————————-

http://www.aamtjapio.com/pslt2019

Following the success of MT Summit 2017 Workshop on Patent and Scientific
Literature Translation, we are organizing the 8th Workshop on Patent and
Scientific Literature Translation (PSLT 2019) as a part of MT Summit 2019
in Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland. While patent information is
still one of the major application areas of machine translation, the need
for translation of different kinds of scientific literature has also been
increasing rapidly. The workshop covers topic a wide range of topics related
to translation of scientific literature including patents, scientific
articles, and technical reports, which have common characteristics as well
as their own characteristics. The workshop, which consists of invited talks,
presentation of submitted papers, and free discussion will be an opportunity
for researchers and practitioners to get together and exchange their ideas
and experiences.
