Second Workshop on Metaphor in Natural Language Processing

We are pleased to announce another RaAM-endorsed event!

Second Workshop on Metaphor in Natural Language Processing

On June 26, 2014 the second workshop on metaphor in natural language processing will take place in Baltimore, MD, USA.

Metaphor processing is a rapidly growing area in NLP.  Characteristic to all areas of human activity (from poetic to ordinary to scientific) and, thus, to all types of discourse, metaphor becomes an important problem for NLP systems.

The aim of this workshop is to discuss issues in computational modeling of metaphor and methodologies for system evaluation, as well as to place the phenomenon within the wider scope of the work done by the NLP community and relate it to the most recent research trends.

The main focus of the workshop will be on computational modeling of metaphor using state-of-the-art NLP techniques.
