The 3rd Annual Meeting of the ELRA/ISCA Special Interest Group on Under-Resourced Languages (SIGUL2024) will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in language processing for under-resourced languages by academic and industry researchers. Following the long-standing series of previous meetings, the SIGUL workshop will also offer a venue where researchers in different disciplines and from varied backgrounds can fruitfully explore new areas of intellectual and practical development while honoring their common interest of sustaining less-resourced languages.

We invite contributions (regular long papers of 8 pages or short papers of 4 pages) targeting any of the following - non-exhaustive - list of topics:

Processing any under-resourced languages (covering less-resourced, under-resourced, endangered, minority, and minoritized languages)

Cognitive and linguistic studies of under-resourced languages

Fast resources acquisition: text and speech corpora, parallel texts, dictionaries, grammars, and language models

Zero and few-shot methodologies and self-supervised learning in language and speech technologies

Cross-lingual and multilingual acoustic and lexical modeling

Speech recognition and synthesis for under-resourced languages and dialects

Machine translation and speech-to-speech translation

Spoken dialogue systems

Applications of language technologies for under-resourced languages

Large language models and under-resourced languages

Special topic:

Text and speech resources and technologies for the languages of Italy

Special Session on languages of Italy and language technologies

Italy is known for its linguistic diversity that reflects its long and varied history. To celebrate it, SIGUL2024 will provide a special session or forum for researchers interested in developing language resources and technologies for the many languages of Italy (regional, minority, or heritage languages, including those of the neighboring countries).
