Text classification can be useful in many real-world scenarios, saving a lot of time for end users.
In real-world scenarios, a text classification task often begins with a cold start, when labeled data is scarce.
In recent years, pretrained language models have revolutionized the NLP world, while achieving state of the art performance in various downstream tasks.
We describe the 2021 Key Point Analysis (KPA-2021) shared task on key point analysis that we organized as a part of the 8th Workshop on Argument Mining (ArgMining 2021) at EMNLP 2021.
In such low resources scenarios, we suggest performing an unsupervised classification task prior to fine-tuning on the target task.

One of the main tasks in argument mining is the retrieval of argumentative content pertaining to a given topic.
Extraction of financial and economic events from text has previously been done mostly using rule-based methods, with more recent works employing machine learning techniques.
In Natural Language Understanding, the task of response generation is usually focused on responses to short texts, such as tweets or a turn in a dialog.
To this end, we collected a large dataset of $400$ speeches in English discussing $200$ controversial topics, mined claims for each topic, and asked annotators to identify the mined claims mentioned in each speech.
With the advancement in argument detection, we suggest to pay more attention to the challenging task of identifying the more convincing arguments.
We propose a methodology to blend high quality but scarce strong labeled data with noisy but abundant weak labeled data during the training of neural networks.
We describe the course of a hackathon dedicated to the development of linguistic tools for Tibetan Buddhist studies.
