The AAAI-22 Workshop on Scientific Document Understanding

at the Thirty-Sixth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-22)

Location: online due to COVID-19

The second workshop on advances, resources, tools and challenges of scientific document understanding


About the Workshop

Scientific documents such as research papers, patents, books, or technical reports are some of the most valuable resources of human knowledge. At the AAAI-22 Workshop on Scientific Document Understanding (SDU@AAAI-22), we aim to gather insights into the recent advances and remaining challenges on scientific document understanding. Researchers from related fields are invited to submit papers on the recent advances, resources, tools, and upcoming challenges for SDU. In addition, we propose a shared task on acronym extraction in multiple languages (i.e., English, French, Spanish, Danish, Persian, and Vietnamese)

Please refer to our CFP/Shared Task pages for more information about the submissions and shared tasks.

This is the second workshop on scientific document understanding. For more information about the first SDU workshop, please refer to
