Call For Papers
*** Apologies for Cross-Posting ***
The First Arabic Natural Language Processing Conference (WANLP 2023) Co-located with EMNLP 2023 in Singapore.
Conference URL: https://wanlp2023.sigarab.org/
Submission URL: TBD
WANLP 2023 invites the submission of original long, short or demo papers in the area of Arabic Natural Language Processing.WANLP 2023 builds on seven previous workshop editions, which have been extremely successful drawing in a large active participation in various capacities. This conference is timely given the continued rise in research projects focusing on Arabic NLP. WANLP 2023 will also feature shared tasks, allowing participants to work on specific NLP challenges related to Arabic language processing. The conference is organized by the Special Interest Group on Arabic NLP (SIGARAB), an Association for Computational Linguistics Special Interest Group on Arabic Natural Language Processing.
We are also inviting proposals for shared tasks related to the topics below. The proposals should provide an overview of the proposed task, motivation, data/resources (how the data will be collected), task description, pilot run (if available), tentative timeline that matches the submission dates below, and task organizers (name, affiliation). Proposals (up to 4 pages) should be sent to: email@example.com

Submissions are invited on topics that include, but are not limited to, the following:
Enabling core technologies: language models and large language models, morphological analysis, disambiguation, tokenization, POS tagging, named entity detection, chunking, parsing, semantic role labeling, sentiment analysis, Arabic dialect modeling, etc.
Applications: dialog modeling, machine translation, speech recognition, speech synthesis, optical character recognition, pedagogy, assistive technologies, social media, etc.
Resources: dictionaries, annotated data, corpora, etc.
Submissions may include work in progress as well as finished work. Submissions must have a clear focus on specific issues pertaining to the Arabic language whether it is standard Arabic, dialectal, classical, or mixed. Papers on other languages sharing problems faced by Arabic NLP researchers, such as Semitic languages or languages using Arabic script, are welcome provided that they propose techniques or approaches that would be of interest to Arabic NLP, and they explain why this is the case. Additionally, papers on efforts using Arabic resources but targeting other languages are also welcome. Descriptions of commercial systems are welcome, but authors should be willing to discuss the details of their work.
