Final CPF!!! Less than one week left !!!

*Workshop for NLP Open Source Software (NLP-OSS)*
20 July 2018, Co-located with ACL 2018

Deadline for Long and Short Paper submission: 8th April 2018
(23:59, GMT-11)

The First Workshop for NLP Open Source Software (NLP-OSS) focuses more on
the social and engineering aspect of NLP software and less on scientific
novelty or
state-of-art models.

NLP-OSS is an academic forum to advance open source developments for NLP
research, teaching and application, announce new software/features, promote
collaborative culture and best practices that go beyond the conferences.


You have used NLP open source tools and bore grievances but found the
solution after
hours of coffee and computer staring. Share that at NLP-OSS and suggest how
source could change for the better (e.g. best practices, documentation, API
design etc.)

You've came across an awesome SOTA system on NLP task X that once ruled the
F1 score.
But now the code is stale and it takes an dinosaur to understand the code.
Share your experience at NLP-OSS and propose how to "replicate" these
forgotten systems.

You have tried 101 NLP tools and there's none that really do what you want.
So you wrote your own shiny new package and made it open source.
Tell us why your package better than the existing tools; how did you design
the code?

Sharing your experiences, suggestions and analysis from/of NLP-OSS at
