NEW! Registration Workshop Schedule

The workshop schedule and the list of accepted papers are now available online. The workshop registration is now open, please follow the link and follow the registration guidelines. If you would like to register for the workshop only, fill out your personal information on the ACL registration page, then select "Continue to main conference registration", select "I am NOT attending the main conference", and go to "Continue to tutorail registration", and after that go to "Continue to workshop registration".

Looking forward to seeing you at TextGraphs-7!

About TextGraphs

TextGraphs is in its seventh edition! This shows that the disciplines graph theoretic models and computational linguistics, are naturally connected, with a large variety of Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications adopting efficient and elegant solutions from graph-theoretical framework.
The TextGraphs workshops series brings together researchers interested in Graph Theory applied to Natural Language Processing and provides an environment for further integration of graph-based solutions into NLP tasks. The workshops encourage discussions about theoretical justifications from Graph Theory that explain empirical results obtained in the NLP community. As a consequence, a deeper understanding of new theories of graph-based algorithms is likely to help to create new approaches and widen the usage of graphs for NLP applications.
