Call For Papers

The Third Workshop on NLP for Indigenous Languages of the Americas (AmericasNLP 2023)

First Call for Papers

The Third Workshop on NLP for Indigenous Languages of the Americas (AmericasNLP) will be co-located with the 61st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2023), which is scheduled to be held in Toronto, Canada, between July 9-14, 2023.

The goal of the workshop is to encourage and increase the visibility of work on the Indigenous languages of the Americas. It aims to encourage research on NLP, computational linguistics, corpus linguistics and speech for Indigenous languages, to connect researchers and professionals from underrepresented communities and native speakers of endangered languages with the ACL community, and, more generally, to promote machine learning approaches suitable for low-resource languages.

We invite the submission of

Long papers (8 pages) and short papers (4 pages) on substantial, original, and unpublished research

Non-archival extended abstracts (2 pages), technical reports (8 pages), and work which has been presented at other venues (in the format of the original publication)

Submissions do not need to describe work on native languages directly, as long as it is clear why those can benefit from the described approaches. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

Creation of datasets for NLP applications

Incorporation of external knowledge into neural systems

Linguistic typology and the use of typological features for NLP

Transfer learning, meta-learning, and active learning

Weakly supervised, semi-supervised, and unsupervised learning

Machine translation of low-resource languages

Morphology and phonology of low-resource languages

NLP applications for Indigenous languages of the Americas

Important dates:

Start of the anonymity period: March 15, 2023

Submission deadline: April 15, 2023

Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2023

Camera ready papers due: May 26, 2023

Workshop: July 14, 2023

All deadlines are 11.59 pm UTC -12h (anywhere on earth).

The workshop also includes:

An open-ended machine translation shared task on truly low-resource languages

A mentoring program to support students and newcomers from underrepresented communities (application form:

We also have a diverse set of invited speakers, focused on bridging the gap between linguists, NLP, and machine learning research!
