RELATIONS - Workshop on meaning relations between phrases and sentences

Bringing together paraphrasing, textual entailment, specificity, and semantic similarity

23rd of May 2019 at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden

Co-located with IWCS

This workshop brings together researchers working on comparing the meaning of linguistic expressions such as phrases, clauses, sentences, and paragraphs. Comparisons of multiple expressions identify meaning relations such as paraphrase, textual entailment, contradiction, specificity, and semantic similarity.

We want to promote the collaboration between researchers working on the different tasks, and to encourage reusability of ideas, resources, and systems. We offer a venue for different researchers to share their work and to discuss the implications on and the interactions with other related areas and tasks.

We are interested in both: theoretical research on the nature of meaning relations and the empirical work on identifying, generating, and extracting them. We also invite submissions studying the impact of the relations in downstream applications.

Important Dates:

  • Submission deadline (extended): March 07 March 10
  • Author notification: April 07
  • Camera ready: April 20
