Workshop on Narrative Understanding, Storylines, and Events (NUSE)

The 1st Joint Workshop on Narrative Understanding, Storylines, and Events (NUSE) brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers from NLP, ML, and other computational fields with authors and scholars from the humanities to discuss methods to improve automatic narrative understanding capabilities.

The workshop will take place in Seattle on July 9 or 10 (exact date TBA), co-located with ACL.

This workshop combines three previously independent workshops in related topic areas: the Narrative Understanding (WNU), Events and Stories in the News (EventStory), and Detecting and Summarizing Events in Real-Time (DeSERT) workshops.
