Workshop on Building Linguistically Generalizable NLP Systems
To be held at EMNLP 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark on September 8

Workshop website: http://generalizablenlp.weebly.com


We will have two types of papers: (1) research contributions; (2)
shared task descriptions. If you are interested in participating in
the shared task, please visit http://bibinlp.umiacs.umd.edu and sign
up for the mailing list. For research contributions, we welcome papers
related to linguistic knowledge in many phases of the NLP pipeline,

 1. Task design and choice of language(s)
 2. Annotation schema design
 3. System architecture design and/or feature design
 4. Evaluation design and error analysis
 5. Generalization beyond training data

Although we welcome papers on any of these topics, our focus is on
(1), (4) and (5).

Contributed papers should follow the EMNLP formatting guidelines and
be between 4 and 8 pages in length. (Reviewers will be told that there
is no penalty for writing a shorter submission.) Each paper will be
reviewed by three reviewers with at least one linguist reviewing each
paper, so please keep that in mind when writing your paper.


Research contribution paper submission: June 2
Shared task description paper submission: June 15
Acceptance notification: June 30
Camera-ready submission: July 14
