** Scope and Topics **
**********************

In its 2015 edition, the Extra-Propositional Aspects of Meaning (ExProM)
workshop aims at bringing together scientists working on ExProM within
computational linguistics. The goal is to attract researchers interested
in theoretical frameworks, annotation schemas, modeling and implementing
real systems, as well as analyzing the impact of ExProM in natural
language processing applications. The workshop also aims at building a
bridge between theoretical and computational linguistics. In particular,
it will address these topics, although it will also cover related topics:

   - Knowledge transfer from linguistics to computational linguistics:
defining models for ExProM
   - ExProM and lexical resources
   - ExProM at the sentence and discourse level: how much context is
necessary?
   - ExProM and subjectivity: how do linguistic resources encode
subjectivity?
   - ExProM across domains: news, scientific texts, legal documents,
economy texts
   - ExProM in user-generated content
   - ExProM and implicit meaning: what do sentences really mean?
   - ExProM in spoken language
   - Negation: verbal/non-verbal, analytic/synthetic, clausal/subclausal
and ordinary/metalinguistic; scope and focus
   - Modality: defining and annotating types for computational linguistics
   - Factuality: determining factuality changes within and across documents
   - Veridicity and veridicality: measuring author commitment
   - Attribution and perspective: determining who says what and their 
purpose
   - Irony and sarcasm
   - (Automatically) extracting ExProM: strategies, resources and
difficulties
   - Supervised, unsupervised and rule-based approaches to extract ExProM
   - Integrating ExProM in the NLP pipeline
   - ExProM for NLP applications: does it help?


*****************
** Submissions **
*****************

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished
work in the topic areas listed above. Full papers should not exceed
eight pages.

Additionally, authors are invited to submit short papers not exceeding 4
pages. Short papers usually describe:
   - a small, focused contribution;
   - work in progress;
   - a negative result;
   - an opinion piece; or
   - an interesting application nugget.

All submissions must be in PDF format and must conform to the official
NAACL 2015 style guidelines
(http://naacl.org/naacl-pubs/naaclhlt2015.pdf). LaTeX style files and
Microsoft Word style files can be found here (http://naacl.org/naacl-pubs/).

The reviewing process will be blind and papers should not include the
authors' names and affiliations. Each submission will be reviewed by at
least three members of the program committee. Accepted papers will be
published in the workshop proceedings and available at the ACL Anthology

Multiple Submission Policy. Papers that have been or will be submitted
to other meetings or publications are acceptable, but authors must
indicate this information at submission time. If accepted, authors must
notify the organizers as to whether the paper will be presented at the
workshop or elsewhere.
