LChange 2021 : 2nd International Workshop on Computational Approaches to Historical Language Change 2021 (ACL 2021)


When Aug 5, 2021 - Aug 6, 2021
Where co-located with ACL 2021
Submission Deadline TBD

Call For Papers


Human language changes over time, driven by the dual needs of adapting to ongoing sociocultural and technological development in the world and facilitating efficient communication. In particular, novel words are coined or borrowed from other languages, while obsolete words slide into obscurity. Similarly, words may acquire novel meanings or lose existing meanings. This workshop explores these phenomena by bringing to bear state-of-the-art computational methodologies, theories and digital text resources on exploring the time-varying nature of human language.

The workshop builds upon its first iteration in 2019, where we received over 50 submissions and had over 65 attendees. Just like the first one, the second LChange workshop will be co-located with ACL 2021, and, pending on the situation, a hybrid event with possible online participation.

Important Dates

• April 26, 2021: Paper submission
• May 28, 2021: Notification of acceptance
• June 7, 2021: Camera-ready papers due
• August 5-6, 2021: Workshop date (day will be decided upon later)

Organisers: Nina Tahmasebi, Adam Jatowt, Yang Xu, Simon Hengchen, Syrielle Montariol, and Haim Dubossarsky
