You are invited to participate in the CL-SciSumm Shared Task at BIRNDL 2016. The shared task will be on automatic paper summarization in the Computational Linguistics (CL) domain. The output summaries will be of two types: faceted summaries of the traditional self-summary (the abstract) and the community summary (the collection of citation sentences ‘citances’). We also propose to group the citances by the facets of the text that they refer to.

The goal of this theme session, proposed for the 9th International Conference on Construction Grammar, is to bring together (frame) semanticists, (construction) grammarians, and computational linguists interested in advancing the role(s) of frames and constructions in computational semantics—or conversely, advancing the role of computational approaches in the characterization of frames and constructions. We seek contributions that address the following question broadly construed: How does the work inform the understanding of computing the meaning of a frame or construction?

The Allen AI Science Challenge

Call for Participation
Event Dates: 
7 Oct 2015 to 13 Feb 2016

The Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2) is partnering with Kaggle to host a competition aimed at automatically answering 8th grade level science exam questions. AI2 is offering a top prize of $50,000 to the team that can achieve the highest score on our test question set -- this is a great opportunity for students working in fields like natural language processing or machine learning to try their hand at answering a large collection of multiple-choice questions using automated systems they construct and train over the course of the competition.
