ACL 2021 — 2nd International Workshop on Computational Approaches to Historical Language Change 2021
05 Aug 2021 - 06 Aug 2021 • Bangkok , Thailand
Abstract:
Human language changes over time, driven by the dual needs of adapting to ongoing sociocultural and technological development in the world and facilitating efficient communication. In particular, novel words are coined or borrowed from other languages, while obsolete words slide into obscurity. Similarly, words may acquire novel meanings or lose existing meanings. This workshop explores these phenomena by bringing to bear state-of-the-art computational methodologies, theories and digital text resources on exploring the time-varying nature of human language.

CASE — Challenges and Applications of Automated Extraction of Socio-political Events from Text @ACL-IJCNLP
05 Aug 2021 - 06 Aug 2021 • Bangkok, Thailand
Abstract:
Today, the unprecedented quantity of easily accessible data on social, political, and economic processes offers ground-breaking potential in guiding data-driven analysis in social and human sciences and in driving informed policy-making processes. The need for precise and high-quality information about a wide variety of events ranging from political violence, environmental catastrophes, and conflict, to international economic and health crises has rapidly escalated (Porta and Diani, 2015; Coleman et al. 2014). Governments, multilateral organizations, local and global NGOs, and social movements present an increasing demand for this data to prevent or resolve conflicts, provide relief for those that are afflicted, or improve the lives of and protect citizens in a variety of ways. For instance, Black Lives Matter protests[1] and conflict in Syria[2] events are only two examples where we must understand, analyze, and improve the real-life situations using such data.
