LREC-COLING Hat Trick and Other Stories

We are delighted to be 3 for 3 on submissions to LREC-COLING 2024, the first Joint International Conference on Computational Linguistics and Language Resources and Evaluation! The accepted papers are:

  • Nath, A., Jamil, H., Ahmed, S. R., Baker, G., Ghosh, R., Martin, J. H., Blanchard, N., and Krishnaswamy, N. (2024). Multimodal Cross-Document Event Coreference Resolution Using Linear Semantic Transfer and Mixed-Modality Ensembles. In Joint International Conference on Computational Linguistics, Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC-COLING). ACL. (In collaboration with the University of Colorado Boulder.)
