The EACL Hackashop on News Media Content Analysis and Automated Report Generation will have its main event on 19 April 2021, in conjunction with EACL. A pre-print of the proceedings is available from the hackashop home page, with 13 peer-reviewed workshop papers, five hackathon reports and a resource description paper.
The programme will contain a keynote and a roundtable with invited experts, in addition to the contributed poster spotlights and presentations.
Registration to the hackashop is included in the registration for EACL, i.e., there is no separate workshop/hackashop registration. Early registration ends April 7th.
The EMBEDDIA consortium is happy to publish updated calls for the Hackashop on news media content analysis and automated report generation in conjunction with EACL 2021:
Call for workshop papers: paper submission deadline Jan 31 (extended)
Call for online hackathon participation: registration by Jan 29, event on Feb 1-21
The hackashop implements a novel, dual format: (1) a traditional track with paper submissions, reviews and paper presentations, and (2) an active, experimentation-based track where hackathon-type online activities precede the workshop, and hackathon teams/individuals present their work in the workshop. Datasets and a suite of tools for use in the hackathon are provided by the EMBEDDIA consortium.
The EMBEDDIA consortium is happy to issue the call for hackathon participation in the Hackashop on news media content analysis and automated report generation in conjunction with EACL 2021.
The call for hackathon participation is available here.
The hackathon targets anyone interested in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning and will provide access to relevant tools and models from ongoing research, as well as datasets and support from technical experts.
Due to Covid-19, the hackathon is organised as a virtual event over a period of three weeks, Feb 1 – Feb 21, 2021. A specialty of the hackashop is that completed hackathon projects are invited to submit a brief report (appr. 2 pages) to the hackashop workshop proceedings, to be published by EACL, and to present their project briefly (5-10 min) in the workshop event.
The call for peer-reviewed workshop papers for the hackashop has been previously published here.
