==================

Third Workshop on e-Commerce and NLP (ECNLP 3)
Co-located with ACL 2020 in Seattle, Washington, USA, July 9/10, 2020
https://sites.google.com/view/ecnlp/acl-2020

Submission Deadline: April 6, 2020

Workshop
========

NLP techniques have been powering e-commerce applications since the early
days of the fields. Today, NLP already plays a significant role in
e-commerce tasks, including recommender systems, product question
answering, product search, machine translation, sentiment analysis, product
description, review summarization, and customer review processing. 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 2020, 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.
