Recent recognition of Collaboratively Constructed Semantic Resources (CSRs) has
substantially contributed to the research in natural language processing (NLP).
The 3rd workshop "The People's Web meets NLP" invites both long and short papers
on various CSRs-related topics. Preference will be given to submissions on CSRs'
application to NLP tasks, which is the special interest of this workshop
edition. We also welcome tutorial-like submissions on using the software for
CSRs to facilitate their wide adoption by the NLP community.

Specific topics include but are not limited to:
* Using collaboratively constructed resources and the information mined from 
  them for NLP tasks (cf. Section "References"), such as word sense 
  disambiguation, semantic role labeling, information retrieval, text 
  categorization, information extraction, question answering, etc.; 
* Mining social and collaborative content for constructing structured lexical 
  semantic resources, annotated corpora and the corresponding tools; 
* Analyzing the structure of collaboratively constructed resources related to 
  their use in NLP; 
* Computational linguistics studies of collaboratively constructed resources, 
  such as wiki-based platforms or folksonomies; 
* Structural and semantic interoperability of collaboratively constructed 
  resources with conventional semantic resources and between themselves; 
* Mining multilingual information from collaboratively constructed resources;
* Using special features of collaboratively constructed resources to create 
  novel resource types, for example revision-based corpora, simplified versions
  of resources, etc.; 
* Quality and reliability of collaboratively constructed lexical semantic 
  resources and annotated corpora; 
* Hands-on practical knowledge on utilization of CSR APIs and tools or designing 
  crowdsourcing procedures for high quality outcomes.
