In conjunction with IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 @ January 8, 2021, Virtual Event

Venue: Yellow Wing-South 1 in

The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum where international participants can share knowledge in applying NLP to the FinTech domain. Recently, in the financial fields, FinTech is a new industry that focuses on improving financial activity with technology. Thus, the aim of this workshop is to bridge the gap between NLP researches and financial applications. 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.

There are two shared tasks collocated with FinNLP-2020, including “Learning Semantic Representations for the Financial Domain” and “Sentence Boundary Detection in PDF Noisy Text in the Financial Domain” We offer the prize for the best paper in the main track and the best-performing teams in the shared tasks.
