First International Workshop on e-Commerce and NLP (ECNLP’2019)


https://sites.google.com/view/ecnlp


NLP and IR have been powering e-Commerce applications since the early days of the fields. Today, NLP and IR already play a significant role in e-commerce tasks, including product search, recommender systems, product question answering, machine translation (MT), sentiment analysis, product description and review summarization, and customer review processing, amongst many other tasks. With the exploding popularity of chatbots and shopping assistants – both text- and voice-based – NLP, IR, question answering, and dialogue systems research is poised to transform e-commerce once again, but requires a forum where new and unfinished ideas could be discussed. The ECNLP workshop aims to provide a venue for the dissemination of late-breaking research results and ideas related to e-commerce and online shopping, bringing together researchers from both academia and industry.


Co-located with WWW 2019, the ECNLP workshop will provide a venue for the dissemination of NLP and IR research results related to e-commerce and online shopping, bringing together researchers from both academia and industry. The workshop welcomes submission of late-breaking and preliminary research results, as well as opinion and position papers.
