Call For Papers
==================

Third Workshop on e-Commerce and NLP (ECNLP 3)
Co-located with ACL 2020 in Seattle, Washington, USA, July 9/10, 2020
https://sites.google.com/view/ecnlp/acl-2020

Submission Deadline: April 6, 2020

Workshop
========

NLP techniques have been powering e-commerce applications since the early days of the fields. Today, NLP already plays a significant role in e-commerce tasks, including recommender systems, product question answering, product search, machine translation, sentiment analysis, product description, review summarization, and customer review processing. With the exploding popularity of chatbots and shopping assistants – both text- and voice-based – NLP, IR, question answering, and dialogue systems research is poised to transform e-commerce once again, but requires a forum where new and unfinished ideas could be discussed.

Co-located with ACL 2020, the ECNLP workshop will provide a venue for the dissemination of NLP and IR research results related to e-commerce and online shopping, bringing together researchers from both academia and industry. The workshop welcomes submission of late-breaking and preliminary research results, as well as opinion and position papers.

ECNLP invites quality research contributions in different formats:
- Original long research papers (8 pages plus references and appendix)
- Original short research papers (4 pages plus references and appendix)
- Position and opinion papers (4 pages)

All submissions will undergo a double-blind review process, and accepted submissions will be presented at the workshop either as oral presentation or as poster.
