The second annual WeCNLP (West Coast NLP) Summit is an opportunity to foster discussion and collaboration between NLP researchers in academia and industry. The event will include talks and a panel from research leaders on the latest advances in NLP technologies. The day will conclude with a happy hour and poster session where attendees can learn from each other in an informal setting.
We invite submissions in areas of NLP related, but not limited to, the following topics:
* bias and ethics in NLP.
* multimodal NLP.
* dialog and conversational AI.
* low resource scenarios in NLP.
We encourage NLP researchers to submit an abstract describing new, previously, or concurrently published research. We welcome abstract submissions, in theory, methodology, as well as applications. Abstracts may describe completed research or work-in-progress. We also welcome abstract submissions on negative results as well as challenges faced in industrial or academic applications. Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to present their work in a poster session. Selected abstracts will be presented both as a lightning talk and at the poster session. Submissions will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind setting.
* June 22, 2019 – Poster abstract submission deadline
* July 15 2019 – Notification of abstract acceptance
* September 6 2019 – WeCNLP Summit
