DEPLING 2023 : International Conference on Dependency Linguistics
Call For Papers
SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
DEPLING 2023, WASHINGTON DC, MARCH 9-12, 2023
Depling (https://depling.org) is a bi-annual conference dedicated to dependency-based approaches in linguistics and natural language processing. Dependencies, directed labeled graph structures representing hierarchical relations between morphemes, words or semantic units, have now become the standard representation of syntactic resources and NLP technologies. Depling has become the central event for people discussing the linguistic significance of these structures, their theoretical and formal foundations, their processing, and their use in NLP tools.
This year, Depling will be part of the Georgetown University Round Table on Linguistics (GURT, https://gurt.georgetown.edu) in Washington DC on March 9-12, 2023, together with UDW, TLT, and CxGs+NLP, in the spirit of previous SyntaxFests (https://syntaxfest.github.io). Talks will take place in plenary sessions to promote cross-fertilization of ideas across subcommunities.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Depling addresses the use of dependency trees and related formal representations (such as DAGs) to represent linguistic structure. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
The use of dependency structures in theoretical linguistics
Historical and epistemological foundations of dependency grammar
The use of dependency structures in corpus development
The use of dependency structures in lexicography
The use of dependency structures in computational linguistics
The relation between dependency-based grammar and other fields of science

We invite paper submissions in two distinct tracks:
regular papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research, including empirical evaluation results, where appropriate;
short papers on smaller, focused contributions, work in progress, negative results, surveys, or opinion pieces.
Papers must be submitted in PDF via OpenReview:
Regular papers may consist of up to 8 pages (excluding references and appendices). Short papers may consist of up to 4 pages (excluding references and appendices). Accepted papers will be given an additional page to address reviewer comments.
Papers should describe original work; they should emphasize completed work and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and relevance to the conference.
All submissions should follow the two-column format and the ACL style.
Proceedings will be published in the ACL Anthology and will include both long and short papers.
