First International Workshop on Narrative Extraction from Texts
Grenoble, France

Proceedings to be submitted to CEUR workshop proceedings (potentially
indexed on DBLP). Authors of relevant papers will be invited to submit an
extended version of their article to a Special issue hosted by IPM Journal

++ Important Dates ++
- Submission deadline: January 8th, 2018
- Acceptance Notification Date: February 19th, 2018
- Camera-ready copies: March 5th, 2018
- Workshop: March 26th, 2018

++ Overview ++
The increasing availability of text information in the form of news
articles, comments or posts in social networks poses new challenges for
those who aim to understand the storyline of an event. Although
understanding natural language text has improved over the last couple of
years with several research works emerging on the grounds of information
extraction and text mining, the problem of constructing consistent
narrative structures is yet to be solved. It is not only the algorithms
that need to be improved, but also the state-of-the-art that needs to
advance in order to provide methods that automatically identify, interpret
and relate the different elements of a narrative which will be likely
spread from different sources. In this workshop we aim to foster the
discussion of recent advances in the link between Information Retrieval
(IR) and formal narrative representations from texts. More specifically, we
aim to capture a wide range of multidisciplinary issues related to the
text-to-narrative-structure and to its various related tasks. This is a
very rich line of research that poses many challenging problems in
information retrieval, text mining, information extraction, computational
linguistics and automatic production of media content.

++ List of Topics ++
Research works submitted to the workshop should foster the scientific
advance on all aspects of storyline generation from texts including but not
limited to narrative and content generation, formal representation, and
visualization of narratives. This includes the following topics:

-  Event Identification
-  Narrative Representation Language
-  Sentiment and Opinion Detection
-  Argumentation Mining
-  Narrative Summarization
-  Storyline Visualization
-  Temporal Aspects of Storylines
-  Story Evolution and Shift Detection
-  Causal Relation Extraction and Arrangement
-  Evaluation Methodologies for Narrative Extraction
-  Big data applied to Narrative Extraction
-  Resources and Dataset showcase
-  Personalization and Recommendation
-  User Profiling and User Behavior Modeling
-  Credibility
-  Fact Checking
-  Bots Influence

++ Submission Guidelines ++
We invite two kinds of submissions (max 6 pages):
-  Research papers
-  Demos and position papers

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through Easy Chair ( All submissions must
be in English. LNCS style (

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the
programme committee.

++ Workshop Format ++
Participants of accepted papers will be given 15 minutes for short oral
presentation. All papers will also be presented in an interactive poster
