NLP4IF 2019 Workshop
NLP4IF is dedicated to NLP methods that potentially contribute (either positively or negatively) to the free flow of information on the Internet, or to our understanding of the issues that arise in this area. We hope that our workshop will have a transformative impact on society by getting closer to achieving Internet freedom in countries where accessing and sharing of information are strictly controlled by censorship.
NLP4IF will feature a shared task on propaganda detection in news. Participants of the shared task will be invited to present their approaches at the workshop. More information on the task website (https://propaganda.qcri.org/nlp4if-shared-task/) and in a follow up email.
The workshop is supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation, award No. #1828199
The topics of interest include (but are not limited) to the following:
