Recent recognition of Collaboratively Constructed Semantic Resources (CSRs) has

substantially contributed to the research in natural language processing (NLP).

The 3rd workshop "The People's Web meets NLP" invites both long and short papers

on various CSRs-related topics. Preference will be given to submissions on CSRs'

application to NLP tasks, which is the special interest of this workshop

edition. We also welcome tutorial-like submissions on using the software for

CSRs to facilitate their wide adoption by the NLP community.

Specific topics include but are not limited to:

* Using collaboratively constructed resources and the information mined from

them for NLP tasks (cf. Section "References"), such as word sense

disambiguation, semantic role labeling, information retrieval, text

categorization, information extraction, question answering, etc.;

* Mining social and collaborative content for constructing structured lexical

semantic resources, annotated corpora and the corresponding tools;

* Analyzing the structure of collaboratively constructed resources related to

their use in NLP;

* Computational linguistics studies of collaboratively constructed resources,

such as wiki-based platforms or folksonomies;

* Structural and semantic interoperability of collaboratively constructed

resources with conventional semantic resources and between themselves;

* Mining multilingual information from collaboratively constructed resources;

* Using special features of collaboratively constructed resources to create

novel resource types, for example revision-based corpora, simplified versions

of resources, etc.;

* Quality and reliability of collaboratively constructed lexical semantic

resources and annotated corpora;

* Hands-on practical knowledge on utilization of CSR APIs and tools or


crowdsourcing procedures for high quality outcomes.

Though the workshop welcomes any CSRs-related topics, preference will be given

to submissions on CSRs' application to NLP tasks, which is the special interest

of this workshop edition. Thereby, we encourage the participation of


with various backgrounds: from computational linguistics (e.g. parsing and

discourse analysis) to NLP applications and other areas that might benefit from

collaboratively constructed semantic resources. Given that we receive a

sufficient number of tutorial-like submissions, a dedicated

presentation session

for those will be scheduled.
