Thank you for coming to CORBON!

CORBON 2017 was the 2nd edition of the workshop on Coreference Resolution Beyond OntoNotes, this time co-located with EACL 2017, taking place in Valencia, Spain, on April 4, 2017.

The workshop focused on:

  • Coreference resolution for less-researched languages (e.g., annotation strategies, resolution modules and formal evaluation)

  • Evaluation of influence of language-specific properties such as lack of articles, quasi-anaphora, ellipsis or complexity of reflexive pronouns to coreference resolution

  • Representation of coreferential relations other than identity coreference (e.g., bridging references, reference to abstract entities, etc.)

  • Investigation of difficult cases of anaphora and coreference and their resolution by resorting to e.g. discourse-based and pragmatic levels

  • Coreference resolution in noisy data (e.g. in speech and social networks)

  • New applications of coreference resolution.

CORBON 2017 also included a shared task aimed at investigating how well one can build a coreference resolver in a projection-based setting.
