FinTech is an emerging and popular topic in both financial and engineering domains, and the technology of textual information analysis is highly related to the scope of IJCAI. The third workshop on Financial Technology and Natural Language Processing (FinNLP 2021) provides a forum where international participants share knowledge on applying NLP to the FinTech domain. Topics of interest include but not limited to text-based market provisioning, NLP-based investment management, crowdfunding analysis with textual data, text-oriented customer preference analysis, insurance application with textual information, NLP-based know your customer (KYC) approaches, and applications or systems for FinTech with NLP methods. Besides the regular paper submission, two shared-tasks, FinSim-2 is co-located. FinSim-2 focuses on the evaluation of semantic representations by assessing the quality of the automatic classification of a given list of carefully selected terms from the Financial domain against a domain ontology. The Proceedings of FinNLP-2021 will be published at ACL Anthology.
