Call For Papers

Event: 11th Workshop on the Representation and Processing of Sign Languages (sign-lang@LREC 2024)
Deadline: 22 February 2024
Submission page:


Submissions are invited for a full day workshop on sign language resources, to take place on 20 May 2024 as a satellite event of LREC-COLING 2024 in Turin, Italy.

During the past years, a number of large-scale sign language corpus projects have started. Some have already been completed, but many more projects are about to start. At the same time, sign language technologies are maturing and are promising to support the time-consuming basic annotation. The workshop aims at bringing together those researchers who already work with multimodal sign language corpora (and those who see the need for empirical underpinnings of their current research) with those who develop sign language technologies. It provides the platform to compare competing approaches.

As sign language resource technologies build to a large extent on methodologies and tools used in the language resource community in general, but add very specific perspectives (e.g. no writing system established, use of video as data source) and works with a different modality of human language, sign language research is able to feed back to the language resource community at large. At the same time, as the raw data are in the visual domain, the field naturally bridges into Computer Vision. Thus, researchers use Machine Learning methods on both visual and linguistic data.

We invite submissions of papers to be presented either on stage (20 minutes plus 10 minutes discussion) or as posters (with or without demonstrations) on the following topics:


With the field maturing, it becomes an urgent issue to assess the quality of sign language resources for a large variety of tasks. We invite contributions on both automatic and human-based evaluation procedures for all kinds of sign language resources and tools.


• Avatar technology as a tool in sign language corpora and corpus data feeding into advances in avatar technology
• Experiences in building sign language corpora
• Elicitation methodology appropriate for corpus collection
• Proposals for standards for linguistic annotation or for metadata descriptions
• Experiences from linguistic research using corpora
• Use of (parallel) corpora and lexicons in translation studies
• Language documentation and long-term accessibility for sign language data
• Annotation and visualization Tools
• Linking corpora and lexicons and integrated presentation of corpus and dictionary contents
• “Internet as a corpus” for sign languages
• Sign language corpus mining
• Crowd and community sourcing for corpus work
• Multi-lingual sign language resources and connecting sign language resources to language resources for spoken languages
• FAIR, CARE and OpenScience for sign language data

In the tradition of LREC, oral/signed presentations and poster presentations (with or without demonstrations) have equal status, and authors are encouraged to suggest the presentation format best suited to communicate their ideas. Papers (4-8 pages) of all accepted submissions to this workshop will be published as workshop proceedings published on the conference website – independent of whether you have a poster or an oral/signed presentation. The workshop does not differentiate between long, short, or position papers.

Please submit your paper through the LREC START system ( not later than 22 February 2024, indicating whether you prefer an oral/signed presentation, a poster presentation or a poster presentation with demo. Unlike the main conference, the workshop will be reviewed single-blind, so submissions SHOULD NOT BE ANONYMOUS.

ATTENTION Please note that you are expected to submit the full paper, not an extended abstract as in previous years!
