Workshop at NAACL 2022 at Seattle, WA on July 14, 2022
World knowledge is distributed across diverse resources in either structured (tables, lists, graphs, and databases) or unstructured forms (texts, large pretrained language models). Recently, there have been extensive efforts to represent, inject, and ground knowledge in various NLP tasks. Because many downstream applications require the integration of both structured and unstructured knowledge, it is essential to design more generalized models to handle multiple sources of knowledge inputs. However, recent NLP progress is mostly focused on dealing with homogeneous external knowledge resource in a single form. This workshop aims to bring researchers from different backgrounds together to discuss challenges and promote solutions in NLP techniques for jointly dealing with structured and unstructured knowledge. This draws wide attention from multiple NLP areas such as Information Extraction, Question Answering, Semantic Parsing, Information Retrieval, Fact Verification, Summarization, Data-to-Text Generation, and Conversational AI.
We seek submissions in two tracks:
Research Track. We welcome submissions on research that broadly relates to combining Structured and Unstructured Knowledge on topics including but not limited to:
Shared Task Track. We plan to host two shared tasks: UnifiedSKG and FinQA. Please check the shared task page for more information. We accept system descriptions of our shared tasks as non-archival workshop submissions.
All deadlines are 11:59 PM UTC -12h (Anywhere on Earth).
Submissions should have at least 4 pages and at most 8 pages of content, plus unlimited pages for references and appendices. Accepted papers will be given 1 additional content page to address reviewers’ comments. Please use the official ARR style files available as an Overleaf template to format your papers. Our reviewing policy is double-blind, and the submissions should be fully anonymized. Please submit through our Openreview submission site.
Dual Submission: We also allow submissions that are under review in other venues or have preprint versions. But please make sure to follow the dual submission policies from the other venues.
Archival vs Non-Archival: During submission, please also indicate if you want your paper to be archival or non-archival. Archival papers, if accepted, will be included in the workshop proceeding, while non-archival will not be included. Both archival or non-archival papers, if accepted, will be presented at workshop.
Anonymity Period: We do not enforce an anonymity period. We allow preprint servers such as arXiv at any point of time.
