Call For Papers

Call for Papers: VarDial 2023 - Tenth Workshop on NLP for Similar Languages, Varieties and Dialects

VarDial 2023:
Shared Tasks:

Together with VarDial 2023, we'll be organizing shared tasks. The website will be updated with shared task information as soon as they are confirmed, latest on January 13. Please check the website for more details.

Co-located with EACL 2023 at VarDial, we anticipate a discussion on computational methods and language resources for closely related languages, language varieties, and dialects.

We welcome papers dealing with one or more of the following topics:

- Corpora, resources, and tools for similar languages, varieties, and dialects;
- Adaptation of tools (taggers, parsers) for similar languages, varieties, and dialects;
- Evaluation of language resources and tools when applied to language varieties;
- Reusability of language resources in NLP applications (e.g., for machine translation, POS tagging, syntactic parsing, etc.);
- Corpus-driven studies in dialectology and language variation;
- Computational approaches to the study of mutual intelligibility between dialects and similar languages;
- Automatic identification of lexical variation;
- Automatic classification of language varieties;
- Text similarity and adaptation between language varieties;
- Linguistic issues in the adaptation of language resources and tools (e.g., semantic discrepancies, lexical gaps, false friends);
- Machine translation between closely related languages, language varieties, and dialects.

In addition to the topics listed above, we welcome papers dealing with diachronic language variation (e.g., phylogenetic methods and historical dialects).

Instructions for Authors

Submissions should be formatted according to the EACL template and submitted in PDF format. The review process will be double-blind. More information is on the website.
