SNLP: The 9th Workshop on NLP for Slavic languages

2 May 2023 or 6 May 2023

co-located with EACL 2023

Submission Deadline: 27 February 2023


The 9th edition of the SNLP Workshop at EACL
Sponsored by SIGSLAV: the ACL Special Interest Group on Slavic NLP

The languages from the Slavic group play an important role due to their diverse cultural heritage and widespread use — with over 400 million speakers worldwide. The current political and economic developments in Central and Eastern Europe bring Slavic societies and languages into focus in terms of rapid technological advancement and expanding consumer markets.

Research on theoretical and applied topics in the context of Slavic languages is still lagging in the community. Linguistic phenomena that are common to Slavic languages — rich morphology, free word order, etc. — make NLP for these languages a challenging task. Slavic NLP gathers researchers from academia and industry. It aims to stimulate research in Slavic NLP, and to foster the creation of tools and resources. The Workshops provides a forum for exchange of ideas and experience, discussing current challenges, and making the available resources widely-known. The structural similarity, as well as the easily recognizable core vocabulary and inflectional inventory spanning this entire large language group creates a special environment, where researchers can appreciate the shared problems and communicate naturally — despite the lack of mutual intelligibility.

This year, we are especially glad to have an opportunity to organize Slav NLP in a Slavic-speaking country.

This Workshop addresses Natural Language Processing (NLP) for the Slavic languages. The NLP tasks in urgent need of attention include:

language modeling

morphological analysis and generation,

syntactic and semantic parsing,

lexical semantics,

named-entity recognition,

text normalisation and processing non-standard language

coreference resolution,

information extraction,

question answering,

text summarization,

machine translation,

development of linguistic resources,

text classification

disinformation detection,

fact verification.

sentiment analysis

This Workshop continues the proud tradition established by the 8 previous BSNLP Workshops.


Submission deadline: 27 February 2023

Notification of acceptance: 19 March 2023

Camera-ready papers due: 27 March 2023

Workshop: 2 or 6 May 2023


This year's SNLP features the 4th edition of the Shared Task on Multilingual Named Entity Recognition: recognizing mentions of named entities in Web documents, lemmatization, and cross-lingual matching in Slavic languages. The shared task covers:
