At JCDL 2016 this year, the workshop chairs recommended that we join the NLPIR4DL workshop proposal, spearheaded by WING, with the 4th Bibliometric-enhanced Information Retrieval workshop. We're glad we did -- we had an awesome programme that brought together IR and NLP folks to talk about all things scholarly. The proceedings of the joint BIRNDL workshop as well as the CL-SciSumm task are available on as well as cross-listed on the ACL Anthology!
