# Learning with Small Data
September 11-12, 2023
CLASP, University of Gothenburg

There is now an acute need for intensive research on the possibility of effective learning with small data. Our 2023 conference, LSD, is devoted to work on this problem, with application to computational linguistics.

Learning with Small Data will bring together researchers from various areas to discuss the sustainability of current state of the art methods in computational linguistics which rely on very large models, such as GPT2-3, BERT, and XLNet. The conference encourages contributions from machine learning, computational linguistics, theoretical linguistics, philosophy, cognitive science, and psycholinguistics, as well as from artificial intelligence ethics and social policy. We hope to see innovative technical proposals, and we will cultivate a wide spectrum of views within a lively dialog on the issues that the conference addresses.

The conference is organized by CLASP, University of Gothenburg.

## Important Dates:

Submission deadline: 2023 May 5, anywhere on Earth

Notification of acceptance: 2023 June 12, anywhere on Earth

Camera ready: 2023 August 14, anywhere on Earth

Conference: 2023 September 11-12, not anywhere on Earth, but in Gothenburg

## Topics of interest

We welcome all relevant approaches to text-based and multimodal computational neural language modeling as well as psycholinguistic perspectives, neurolinguistic perspectives, ethical, and policy issues. Papers are invited on topics in these and closely related areas, including (but not limited to) the following:

small-scale neural language modeling, both text-only and multimodal

training corpus and test task development

visual, dialog and multi-modal inference systems

neurolinguistic and psycholinguistic experimental approaches to human language processing

semantics and pragmatics in neural models

dialog modeling and linguistic interaction

formal and theoretical approaches to language production and comprehension

language acquisition in the context of computational linguistics

statistical, machine learning, reinforcement learning and information theoretic approaches that embrace small data

methodologies and practices for annotating datasets

visual, dialog and multi-modal generation

text generation in both the dialog and monologue settings

semantics-pragmatics interface

social and ethical implications of the development and application of large or small neural language models, as well as relevant policy implications and debates.

## Submission Requirements

LSD 2023 will feature three types of submissions: long papers, student papers, and short papers. All types of papers should be submitted not later than 5 May 2023. Long papers must describe original research, and they must not exceed 8 pages excluding references. They will be presented at the conference either orally or as posters. Student papers describe original research, and the first author must be a student, or at least 2/3 of the work on a paper should be done by students. Student papers must not exceed 6 pages excluding references. Reviewers will give special support to student authors through mentoring. The papers will be presented orally or as posters at the conference. Short papers present work in progress, or they describe systems and/or projects. They must not exceed 4 pages excluding references. They will be presented as posters at the conference and summarized in lightning talks. Position papers are also accepted. These should be formatted in the same way as long papers. All types of papers will be published in the 2023 ACL Anthology as a CLASP Conference Proceedings.

Submissions should be pdf files and use the Latex or Word templates provided for ACL 2023 submissions ( Submissions have to be anonymous.

Papers should be electronically submitted in PDF format via the softconf system at: Please make sure that you select the right track when submitting your paper. Contact the organisers if you have problems using softconf.

## Concurrent Submissions

Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must indicate this at submission time using a footnote on the title page of the submissions. Authors of papers accepted for presentation at Learning with Small Data 2023 must notify the program chairs by the camera-ready deadline as to whether the paper will be presented. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference to appear in the proceedings. We will not accept for publication or presentation papers that overlap significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere.

## Camera Ready Versions

Camera ready versions should follow the same guidelines with respect to style and page numbers as the initial submission, i.e. there are no additional pages allowed in the final submission. Please submit the camera ready version by 2023 August 14.
