The 2020 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing will consist of the main conference, workshops, and tutorials.

EMNLP offers 24 workshops to suit a wide range of interests:

  • Fifth Conference on Machine Translation (WMT20): A two day conference on machine translation with shared tasks.
  • Workshop on Insights from Negative Results in NLP: Let's take a break from chasing leaderboards! Your negative results might save others time, or poke holes in things we take for granted.
  • Search-Oriented Conversational AI (SCAI): This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the NLP, Machine Learning, and IR communities to lay the ground for search-oriented conversational AI and establish future directions and collaborations.
  • Workshop on Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL): The CMCL workshop provides a venue for computational research on cognitive theories of language processing, representation and acquisition.
  • Interactive and Executable Semantic Parsing (Int-Ex): Map natural language to meaning representations executed in databases, knowledge graphs, robotic environment and software applications.
  • SustaiNLP: Workshop on Simple and Efficient Natural Language Processing: Promoting computationally efficient NLP and justified model complexity. Encouraging conceptual NLP novelty, discouraging "more compute".
  • 1st Workshop on Computational Approaches to Discourse: The Workshop on Computational Approaches to Discourse (CODI) covers all aspects of discourse and its computational modeling.
  • The Fourth Workshop on Abusive Language Online: The workshop focuses on online abuse through a multi-disciplinary lens, drawing on social sciences, law, media studies, and more.
  • NLP and Computational Social Science (NLP+CSS): This workshop focuses on NLP for Social Sciences, interdisciplinary work in CSS, and integrating CSS with current trends in NLP.
  • LOUHI 2020 - 11th International Workshop on Health Text Mining and Information Analysis: an interdisciplinary forum for researchers interested in automated processing of health documents
  • Evaluation and Comparison of NLP Systems: The workshop focuses on designing evaluation metrics, reporting trustworthy results and creating adequate and correct evaluation data.
  • CoNLL 2020: CoNLL is a yearly top-tier NLP conference that has been organized by SIGNLL since 1997.
  • 4th Workshop on Structured Prediction for NLP: Structured prediction with continuous representations, task-level supervision and latent linguistic structure.
  • Workshop on NLP for Positive Impact: Our workshop aims to promote NLP research that will positively impact society, through proactive and responsible methods.
  • First Workshop on Scholarly Document Processing (SDP 2020): SDP is a full day workshop that provides an interdisciplinary venue for researchers interested in any aspect of mining scientific literature. SDP includes a research track and three shared tasks: 6th CL-SciSumm, 1st LongSumm, 1st LaySumm.
  • NLP Beyond Text: Can you really know if someone is sarcastic by only reading his texts? If the answer is no, the NLPBT workshop is what you're looking for.
  • PrivateNLP 2020: The First Workshop on Privacy in NLP: PrivateNLP focuses on Privacy Preserving systems: differential privacy, anonymized datasets and models, GDPR compliance, and shared tasks!
  • Second Workshop for NLP Open Source Software (NLP-OSS): Democratizing NLP!
  • Spatial Language Understanding: Spatial Language Understanding, Learning/Reasoning on Spatial Semantics, (sub)Symbolic Representations and Grounding Language in Perception
  • SIGTYP 2020: The Second Workshop on Computational Research in Linguistic Typology: Bringing together researchers interested in applying computational techniques to problems in linguistic typology and multilingual NLP.
  • 3rd Clinical Natural Language Processing Workshop (Clinical NLP 2020): Explore challenges and promises of clinical text: understand a patient's story, predict health outcomes, advance medical research, and more.
  • Deep Learning Inside Out (DeeLIO): The First Workshop on Knowledge Extraction and Integration for Deep Learning Architectures: Deep Learning Inside Out: Knowledge Extraction and Integration for Deep Learning Architectures with special focus on low-data regimes
  • 6th Workshop on Noisy User-generated Text (W-NUT 2020): Social media, crowdsourcing, medical texts, language learner essays, and more! 2 keynotes, 130 PC members, talks and 1-min madness for posters
  • BlackboxNLP 2020: Analyzing and interpreting neural networks for NLP: Open the black-box of neural networks in NLP and make sense of the big pile of goo inside it

EMNLP will feature tutorials across a wide range of topics. All tutorials are three hours in length:
