Room: Sicily 2504

In conjunction with IJCAI-2019 @ August 12, 2019, Macao, China

The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum where international participants can share knowledge on applying NLP to the Financial Technology (FinTech) domain. Recently, in the financial fields, FinTech is a new industry that focuses on improving financial activity with technology. Thus, in order to bridge the gap between the NLP researches and the financial applications, we plan to organize, FinNLP, a workshop on FinTech and NLP. With the sharing of the researchers in FinNLP, the challenging problems of blending FinTech and NLP will be identified, and the future research direction will be shaped. That can broaden the scope of this interdisciplinary research area.
