Call For Papers

Third International Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Uralic Languages (IWCLUL2017) and ACL SIGUR meeting

http://gtweb.uit.no/iwclul2017

23–24th January, 2017, St. Petersburg, Russia

Call for papers

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

Research papers should be original, substantial and unpublished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 appreciated. In this year's
edition we particularly encourage researchers of minority Uralic languages
in Russia to participate.
