Call For Papers

The purpose of the Second International Workshop on Computational
Linguistics for Uralic Languages is to bring together researchers working
on computational approaches to working with these languages. We accept
papers and tutorial proposals working on the following languages: Finnish,
Hungarian, Estonian, Voru, Setu, the Sámi languages, Komi (Zyrian,
Permyak), Mordvin (Erzya, Moksha), Mari (Hill, Meadow), Udmurt, Nenets
(Tundra, Forest), Enets (Tundra, Forest), Nganasan, Selkup, Mansi, Khanty,
Veps, Karelian, Ingrian (Izhorian), Votic, Livonian, Ludic, Kven and other
related languages.

All Uralic languages exhibit rich morphological structure, which makes
processing them challenging for state-of-the-art computational linguistic
approaches, the majority also suffer from a lack of resources and many are

Research papers should be original, substantial and unpublished research,
that can describe work-in-progress systems, frameworks, standards and
evaluation schemes. Demos and tutorials will present systems and standards
towards the goal of interoperability and unification of different projects,
applications and research groups . Appropriate topics include (but are not
limited to):

Parsers, analysers and processing pipelines of Uralic languages
Lexical databases, electronic dictionaries
Finished end-user applications aimed at Uralic languages, such as spelling
or grammar checkers, machine translation or speech processing
Evaluation methods and gold standards, tagged corpora, treebanks
Reports on language-independent or unsupervised methods as applied to
Uralic languages
Surveys and review articles on subjects related to computational
linguistics for one or more Uralic languages
Any work that aims at combining efforts and reducing duplication of work
How to elicit activity from the language community, agitation campaigns,
games with a purpose

To maximise the possibility of reproducibility, replication and reuse, we
particularly encourage submissions which present free/open-source language
resources and make use of free/open-source software.

One of the aims of this gathering is to avoid unnecessary duplicated work
in field of Uralistics by establishing connections and interoperability
standards between researchers and research groups working at different
sites. We have also identified a serious lack of gold standards and
evaluation metrics for all Uralic languages including those with national
support, any work towards better resources in these fields will be greatly
