AmericasNLP 2024 : The 4th Workshop on NLP for Indigenous Languages of the Americas
Call For Papers
The 4th Workshop on NLP for Indigenous Languages of the Americas (AmericasNLP 2024)
First Call for Papers
The 4th Workshop on NLP for Indigenous Languages of the Americas (AmericasNLP) will be co-located with the 2024 Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL 2024), which is scheduled to be held in Mexico City, Mexico, between June 16-21, 2024.
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Long papers (8 pages) and short papers (4 pages) on substantial, original, and unpublished research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
Start of the anonymity period: February 10, 2024
Submission deadline: March 10, 2024
Notification of acceptance: April 14, 2024
Camera ready papers due: April 24, 2024
Workshop: June 20 or 21, 2024
All deadlines are 11.59 pm UTC -12h (anywhere on earth).

The workshop also includes:
A machine translation shared task on truly low-resource languages
A shared task on morphological adaptation to generate educational examples
We also have a diverse set of invited speakers, focused on bridging the gap between linguists, NLP, and machine learning research!
