*Call For Papers*

The Fourth Workshop on e-Commerce and NLP (ECNLP 4)
Co-located with ACL-IJCNLP 2021 in Bangkok, Thailand, Aug 1-6, 2021


NLP and IR have been powering e-commerce applications since its early days.
Today, NLP and IR already play a significant role in e-commerce tasks,
including product search, recommender systems, product question answering,
machine translation, sentiment analysis, product description and review
summarization, and customer review processing, amongst many other tasks.
With the exploding popularity of chatbots and shopping assistants – both
text- and voice-based – NLP, IR, question answering, and dialogue systems
research is poised to transform e-commerce once again, but requires a forum
where new and unfinished ideas could be discussed.

Co-located with ACL 2021, the ECNLP workshop will provide a venue for the
dissemination of NLP and IR research results related to e-commerce and
online shopping, bringing together researchers from both academia and
industry. The workshop welcomes submission of late-breaking and preliminary
research results, as well as opinion and position papers.

ECNLP invites quality research contributions in different formats:
- Original long research papers (8 pages plus references and appendix)
- Original short research papers (4 pages plus references and appendix)
- Position and opinion papers (4 pages)

All submissions will undergo a double-blind review process, and accepted
submissions will be presented at the workshop either as oral presentation
or as poster.
