The First Workshop on Visualization for Natural Language Processing (Vis4NLP)

May 27th 2024, Odense, Denmark

The workshop will be co-located with EuroVis 2024 in Odense, Denmark, will take place in person on May 27. The workshop aims to create a dedicated space for interdisciplinary collaboration at the intersections of NLP and visualization. Vis4NLP serves as a pivotal platform where researchers, practitioners, and academics come together to collectively tackle the ever-evolving challenges and opportunities in NLP visualization.

Call for Papers

In the rapidly evolving landscape of Natural Language Processing, visualization plays a pivotal role in aiding researchers and practitioners alike. The surge in the sophistication and complexity of NLP models, driven by advancements in machine learning and deep learning, has created a pressing need for effective visualization tools and techniques. These tools are essential for gaining insights into the behavior of NLP models, comparing their performance, and addressing issues related to debugging, diagnostics, and evaluation. In this context, the importance of visualization for developing NLP tasks cannot be overstated.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
