Call For Papers

** Deadline extended to March 17th, 23:59 AoE **

VarDial deals with computational methods and language resources for closely related languages, language varieties, and dialects. We welcome papers dealing with one or more of the following topics:

- Corpora, resources, and tools for similar languages, varieties and dialects;
- Adaptation of tools (taggers, parsers) for similar languages, varieties and dialects;
- Evaluation of language resources and tools when applied to language varieties;
- Reusability of language resources in NLP applications (e.g., for machine translation, POS tagging, syntactic parsing, etc.);
- Corpus-driven studies in dialectology and language variation;
- Computational approaches to mutual intelligibility between dialects and similar languages;
- Automatic identification of lexical variation;
- Automatic classification of language varieties;
- Text similarity and adaptation between language varieties;
- Linguistic issues in the adaptation of language resources and tools (e.g., semantic discrepancies, lexical gaps, false friends);
- Machine translation between closely related languages, language varieties and dialects.

In addition to the topics listed above, we also welcome papers dealing with diachronic language variation (e.g. phylogenetic methods, historical dialects).

In connection with VarDial 2024, we also organize two shared tasks:
- The DIALECT-COPA shared task on dialectal causal commonsense reasoning
- DSL-ML - Multi-label classification of similar languages

Details about the shared tasks, including submission deadlines, can be found here:
