About

TextXD aims to:

  • Foster a cross-disciplinary community of text processing experts from academia, research, and industry.
  • Develop a shared understanding of each other’s use of text processing data, algorithms, and software.
  • Help us learn from one another, through tutorials, and collaborative work sessions, about available tools and methods, and the applicability of these to various discipline-specific problems.

Submission

TextXD brings together researchers from across a wide range of disciplines, who work with text as a primary source of data. We work to identify common principles, algorithms and tools to advance text-intensive research, and break down the boundaries between domains, to foster exchange and new collaborations among like-minded researchers. We encourage scholars and practitioners from a broad disciplinary and geographic range to apply. Talks will range from the theory of text analysis and deep learning to applied analyses or new software packages.

SCHEDULE IN BRIEF:

  • Thursday, Dec. 10th: Invited speakers, pannel, research talks
  • Friday, Dec. 11th: Invited speakers, pannel, research talks
  • Saturday, Dec. 12th: Closing remarks and award ceremony

We understand that some of the best work on text analysis across domains is still in development. For this reason, we wish to encourage you to share your work with us by submitting a short 3-5 minute lightning talk of your research involving text analysis.

πŸ—“οΈ We will accept submissions up until November 15, 2020.

Hackathon

This year we wish to hold a three-day (48 hour) hackathon. The theme of the hackathon will be “Law and Society”, and the dataset we will be analyzing will reflect an archive of texts from investigative reporting on the subject of police (mis)conduct.

πŸ—“οΈ We will accept applications up until November 15, 2020.
