We will present 3 research papers during this year’s EMNLP (Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing) in Lisbon, Portugal.
The first is a paper on comparing a support vector classifier to a lexicon-based approach for the task of detecting the stance categories speculation, contrast and conditional in English consumer reviews. The paper is called “Detecting Speculations, Contrasts and Conditionals in Consumer Reviews”, and will be presented on Thursday September 17 at the co-located workshop on Computational Approaches to Subjectivity, Sentiment & Social Media Analysis (WASSA).
The second paper investigates a method for factorizing distributional semantic models that produces state-of-the-art results on a range of semantic benchmark tests. The title of the paper is “Factorization of Latent Variables in Distributional Semantic Models”, which will be presented on Saturday, September 19.
The third paper introduces a novel way to navigate neighborhoods in distributional semantic models based on relative neighborhood graphs. The paper is titled “Navigating the Semantic Horizon using Relative Neighborhood Graphs” and will be presented on Monday, September 21.
See you in Lisbon!
