This paper presents a new task called zero-shot entity linking where mentions must be linked to unseen entities without in-domain labelled data, they also propose an adaptive pre-training strategy called domain adaptive pre-training (DAP), to address the domain shift problem associated with linking unseen entities in a new domain. This paper also got the Outstanding paper award at ACL-2019
