We are delighted to announce four papers on interpretation and reasoning in NLU and NLG using commonsense knowledge, to appear at ACL-IJCNLP 2021, at *SEM 2021, at the DeeLIO Workshop @NAACL 2021 and in IWCS 2021, the International Conference on Computational Semantics in Groningen.

  • Debjit Paul and Anette Frank: COINS: Learning to Generate COntextualized Inference Rules for Narrative Story Completion. To appear at ACL-IJCNLP 2021. arXiv preprint
  • Maria Becker, Siting Liang and Anette Frank: Reconstructing Implicit Knowledge with Language Models. To appear at: Deep Learning Inside Out (DeeLIO): The Workshop on Knowledge Extraction and Integration for Deep Learning Architectures @ NAACL 2021. Earning the Best Paper Award

And three more papers all related to Multimodal Vision and Language Processing will appear in the Workshop on Advances in Language and Vision Research (ALVR) @NAACL 2021 and in the Multimodal Semantic Representations Workshop @IWCS 2021.

  • Julia Suter, Letitia Parcalabescu and Anette Frank: Grounding Plural Phrases: Countering Evaluation Biases by Individuation. To appear in ALVR @NAACL 2021.
  • Letitia Parcalabescu, Nils Trost and Anette Frank: What is Multimodality? First Workshop on Multimodal Semantic Representations. To appear in MMSR @IWCS and to be presented in ALVR@NAACL 2021. arXiv preprint
  • Letitia Parcalabescu, Albert Gatt, Anette Frank and Iacer Calixto: Seeing Past Words: Testing the Cross-Modal Capabilities of pretrained V&L models. To appear in MMSR @IWCS 2021 and also being presented in Repl4NLP @ ACL-IJCNLP 2021. arXiv preprint
