TakeLab excels at ACL 2013

We make contributions in the fields of computational morphology, distributional semantics, and event extraction. Read the nifty details after the jump…

We’ve worked hard during the gloomy winter but now have something to show for it. Four papers co-autored by TakeLab members have been accepted for this year’s ACL 2013, the most significant NLP conference, to be held in Sofia in August. 

Our papers make contributions in the fields of computational morphology, distributional semantics, and event extraction. Here they are:

  • G. Glavaš and J. Šnajder: Recognizing Identical Events with Graph Kernels. Accepted for ACL 2013. Sofia, Bulgaria. (Abstract)
  • S. Pado and J. Šnajder and B. Zeller: Derivational Smoothing for Syntactic Distributional Semantics. Accepted for ACL 2013. Sofia, Bulgaria. (Abstract)
  • J. Šnajder and S. Pado and Ž. Agić: Building and Evaluating a Distributional Memory for Croatian. Accepted for ACL 2013. Sofia, Bulgaria. (Abstract)
  • B. Zeller and J. Šnajder and S. Pado. DErivBase: Inducing and Evaluating a Derivational Morphology Resource for German. Accepted for ACL 2013, Sofia, Bulgaria. (Abstract)

The last three papers are the results of the ongoing project “Derivational Semantic Models for IR”, funded by the Croatian Science Foundation and carried out in cooperation with Sebastian Pado and Britta D. Zeller (Institute for Computational Linguistics, University of Heidelberg). For the third paper we also joined our efforts with Željko Agić (UNIZG FFZG). We of course look forward to our continuous cooperation.
