EMNLP 2022

Call for Papers


We invite submissions describing innovations and implementations that focus on understanding how to optimize human-computer cooperation and minimize human effort along the data science pipeline in a wide range of data science tasks and real-world applications.

Topics of interest to this workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Supervised, self-supervised, transfer, and unsupervised learning with human-in-the-loop

  • Human intervention and consequences on model bias, overfitting, and fairness

  • Human and computer cooperation in data cleaning, preparation, representation for NLP tasks

  • Optimizing human effort in data labeling

  • Crowdsourcing in NLP

  • Human-in-the-loop during model evaluation and model improvement

  • Multi-modal human-in-the-loop issues in NLP in conjunction with data from other modalities such as social media, knowledge graphs, speech, image, video

  • Enabling non-experts to build advanced NLP models

  • Formal and higher abstractions for human-machine interaction in NLP tasks

  • User interfaces for data preprocessing, labeling, and NLP model building, evaluation, and interpretation

  • Human-in-the-loop issues in implementing, using, evaluating, and deploying NLP models in specific applications (e.g., medical, scientific, legal, business, digital humanities, creative).


Authors are invited to submit either of the following:

  • Original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Research papers are limited to six pages in length, excluding references.

  • Short papers of late-breaking work and work in progress. Abstracts are limited to two pages.

Authors of both types of papers will need to present these papers at DaSH.

Submissions to the workshop must be in PDF and should follow the EMNLP paper formatting. All submissions should be anonymized to facilitate double-blind reviewing. To submit a paper, please access the submission link here.

One Best Paper Award and One Best Student Paper Award will be sponsored by IBM Research with cash prizes!
