Language models such as chatGPT, BERT, and T5, have demonstrated remarkable outcomes in numerous AI applications. Research has shown that these models implicitly capture vast amounts of factual knowledge within their parameters, resulting in a remarkable performance in knowledge-intensive applications. The seminal paper "Language Models as Knowledge Bases?" sparked interest in the spectrum between language models (LMs) and knowledge graphs (KGs), leading to a diverse range of research on the usage of LMs for knowledge base construction, including (i) utilizing pre-trained LMs for knowledge base completion and construction tasks, (ii) performing information extraction tasks, like entity linking and relation extraction, and (iii) utilizing KGs to support LM based applications.
The 1st Workshop on Knowledge Base Construction from Pre-Trained Language Models (KBC-LM) workshop aims to give space to the emerging academic community that investigates these topics, host extended discussions around the LM-KBC Semantic Web challenge, and enable an informal exchange of researchers and practitioners.
|Papers due:||July 31, 2023|
|Notification to authors:||August 31, 2023|
|Camera-ready deadline:||September 14, 2023|
|Workshop dates:||6 November 2023|
We invite contributions on the following topics:
Submissions can be novel research contributions or already published papers (these will be presentation-only, and not part of the workshop proceedings). Novel research papers can be either full papers (ca. 8-12 pages), or short papers presenting smaller or preliminary results (typically 3-6 pages). We are accepting demo and position papers as well. Check out also the LM-KBC challenge for further options to contribute to the workshop.
Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three researchers using a single-blind review. Accepted papers will be published on CEUR (unless authors opt out). Submissions need to be formatted according to the CEUR workshop proceedings (template). Papers can be submitted directly via Openreview.
Robert Bosch GmbH has signaled that they would likely sponsor a best paper award over 500 Euro.
