INVITED SPEAKERS
Prof. Dr. Rada Mihalcea is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at University of North Texas. Her research interests are in computational linguistics, with a focus on lexical semantics, graph-based algorithms for natural language processing, and multilingual natural language processing. She is currently involved in a number of research projects, including word sense disambiguation, monolingual and cross-lingual semantic similarity, subjectivity, sentiment, and emotion analysis, and computational humor. She serves or has served on the editorial boards of the Journals of Computational Linguistics, Language Resources and Evaluations, Natural Language Engineering, and Research in Language in Computation. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, Google, and the State of Texas. She is the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER award (2008) and a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (2009).
Prof. Dr. Janyce Wiebe is Professor of Computer Science and Director of the Intelligent Systems Program at the University of Pittsburgh. Her research with students and colleagues has been in discourse processing, pragmatics, and word-sense disambiguation. A major concentration of her research is "subjectivity analysis", recognizing and interpretating expressions of opinions and sentiments in text, to support NLP applications such as question answering, information extraction, text categorization, and summarization. Her professional roles have included ACL Program Co-Chair, NAACL Program Chair, NAACL Executive Board member, Computational Linguistics and Language Resources and Evaluation Editorial Board member, AAAI Workshop Co-Chair, ACM Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence (SIGART) Vice-Chair, and ACM-SIGART/AAAI Doctoral Consortium Chair.
