You are invited to participate in the 3rd Workshop on Scholarly Document Processing (SDP 2022) to be held at COLING 2022 (October 12-17, 2022). The SDP 2022 workshop will consist of a Research track and six Shared Tasks. The call for research papers is described below.
Papers must follow the COLING format and conform to the COLING Submission Guidelines. Submission is electronic, using the Softconf START conference management system.
Although scientific literature plays a major part in research and policy-making, these texts represent an underserved area of NLP. NLP can play a role in addressing research information overload, identifying disinformation and its effect on people and society, and enhancing the reproducibility of science. The unique challenges of processing scholarly documents necessitate the development of specific methods and resources optimized for this domain. The Scholarly Document Processing (SDP) workshop provides a venue for discussing these challenges and bringing together stakeholders from different communities including computational linguistics, text mining, information retrieval, digital libraries, scientometrics, and others to develop and present methods and resources in support of these goals.
This workshop builds on the success of prior workshops: the 1st and 2nd SDP workshop held at EMNLP 2020 and NAACL 2021, and the 1st and 2nd SciNLP workshop held at AKBC 2020 and 2021. In addition to having broad appeal within the NLP community, we hope the SDP workshop will attract researchers from other relevant fields including meta-science, scientometrics, data mining, information retrieval, and digital libraries, bringing together these disparate communities within ACL.
We invite submissions from all communities demonstrating usage of and challenges associated with natural language processing, information retrieval, and data mining of scholarly and scientific documents. Relevant tasks include (but are not limited to):
We specifically invite research on important or underserved areas, such as:
We encourage submissions from diverse voices. Anyone who self-identifies with an underrepresented demographic, regardless of seniority, scientific background, training, etc., is welcome to submit their work and attend the workshop. We aim to create an inclusive space and look forward to receiving submissions from researchers of all identities, living anywhere, whether first time authors or more experienced writers.
Authors are invited to submit full and short papers with unpublished, original work. Submissions will be subject to a double-blind peer review process. Accepted papers will be presented by the authors at the workshop either as a talk or a poster. All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings (proceedings from previous years can be found in the ACL Anthology).
The submissions must be in PDF format and anonymized for review. All submissions must be written in English and follow the COLING 2022 formatting requirements.
We follow the same policies as COLING 2022 regarding preprints and double-submissions. The anonymity period for SDP 2022 is from June 13 to August 26, 2022.
Long paper submissions: up to 9 pages of content, plus unlimited references.
Short paper submissions: up to 4 pages of content, plus unlimited references.
Submission Website: Submission is electronic, using the Softconf START conference management system.
Final versions of accepted papers will be allowed 1 additional page of content so that reviewer comments can be taken into account.
The dates are at this stage indicative only and can change. The current dates are up-to-date as of March 24, 2022.
