Information in natural language is almost always located in time and/or space. The coherence of a document also results from a coherent temporal perspective, and in certain cases from the coherence of the spatial frame.
 +
 +
Beyond specific applications where this information is obviously central (navigation systems, scene visualization, geo-localization, chronology extraction, etc), time and space also play an important part in other related tasks, such as information extraction where they constrain the validity of most facts, or in summarization and question-answering where temporal coherence is important. From a more fundamental perspective, temporal and spatial modifications have a pervasive influence in semantic and pragmatic representations. It is natural that they motivate a growing number of projects, specific annotated corpora, which in turn lead to specification and normalization efforts, such as the ISO-TimeML and ISO-Space standards.
 +
 +
All this have helped to move from essentially theoretical models in the 1990s, to arrive at a body of work with better empirically justified foundations. This can be shown with recent evaluation campaigns for some sub-tasks (Tempeval) within the Semeval campaigns.
 +
 +
Expressions of time and space also have some specific aspects that set them apart from other semantic tasks in natural language processing. A notable aspect is the importance of the underlying semantics of temporal and spatial predicates, as is noted in several studies that take their inferential properties into account, especially when considered at the level of a document. Evaluation of the resulting representations is then not a trivial matter.
 +
 +
The objective of this special issue is to present new developments in the processing of temporal and spatial information in language, from theoretical, practical and methodological point of views. Spatial processing has been of increasing interest lately, and raises specific issues, and we encourage work that focus on this aspect, in isolation or in relation with temporal information. Presentation of the importance of such information in applications is also encouraged.
 +
 +
We encourage submission on any aspect related to the processing of temporal and spatial information in natural language, especially on the following issues and tasks:
 +
 +
*  temporal information extraction : date and event extraction, event anchoring, relating events within a text or a text collection
 +
*  spatial information extraction: spatial entity recognition, geolocalisation, relating spatial entities
 +
*  temporal/spatial question-answering
 +
*  joint processing of temporal and spatial information, motion description, route description
 +
*  representation and reasoning issues, in particular interoperability of temporal/spatial representations
 +
*  generation of scene and image description
 +
*  information extraction and monitoring in specific domains, such as the medical domain
 +
*  joint processing of time and modality
 +
*  annotation scheme for time and space
 +
*  creation and use of resources for temporal and spatial processing
 +
*  specificities of evaluation procedures for temporal/spatial annotation schemes, resources and processes
