6th Workshop on Automated Knowledge Base Construction (AKBC) 2017
at NIPS 2017 in Long Beach, California, December 8th, 2017.
We welcome papers documenting previously unpublished research; ongoing and exciting preliminary work is perfectly fine. We are particularly interested in visionary paper submissions. We aim for papers that express intriguing and promising ideas — focusing less on where science is today and more on where it should go tomorrow.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
In addition, for the first time, AKBC will address a longstanding issue in the AKBC, that of equitable comparison and evaluation across methods. We encourage people to use the KBP Online platform (https://kbpo.stanford.edu/), a new effort to standardize KB population/construction evaluation, for their system evaluation for paper submissions. The platform automates the annotation of kb output and is made available for free for AKBC participants. For further details or questions, visit https://kbpo.stanford.edu/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please format your papers using the standard NIPS 2017 style files, and restrict them to 5 pages (excluding references). Since the reviewing will not be double-blind, include author information and the \nipsfinalcopy flag. Note that you don't have to include a separate Abstract section in the submission. All accepted papers will be presented as posters, with exceptional submissions also presented as oral talks.
We are happy to announce that this year we are able to award free workshop registration to exceptional student applicants. Please send your CV and a short cover letter explaining why you need the travel award, your research interests and how it fits to AKBC to email@example.com.
