Call For Papers

Universal Dependencies [1] (UD) is a framework for cross-linguistically
consistent treebank annotation that has so far been applied to over 50
languages.

The framework is aiming to capture similarities as well as idiosyncrasies
among typologically different languages (e.g., morphologically rich
languages, pro-drop languages, and languages featuring clitic doubling). The
goal in developing UD was not only to support comparative evaluation and
cross-lingual learning but also to facilitate multilingual natural language
processing and enable comparative linguistic studies.

After a period of very rapid growth since the release of the first guidelines
in October 2014, it is now time to take stock and reflect on the theory and
practice of UD, its use in research and development, and its future goals and
challenges.

The first workshop on Universal Dependencies is co-located with NoDaLiDa in
Gothenburg, Sweden. We are excited to announce the following invited
speakers:

* Mirella Lapata (School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh)
* William Croft (Department of Linguistics, University of New Mexico)

We invite papers on all topics relevant to UD, including but not limited to:

* theoretical foundations and universal guidelines
* linguistic analysis of specific languages and/or constructions
* language typology and linguistic universals
* treebank annotation, conversion and validation
* word segmentation, morphological tagging and syntactic parsing
* downstream applications in natural language processing

Priority will be given to papers that adopt a cross-lingual perspective.

We solicit two types of papers: regular workshop papers and
cross-submissions. Papers will be presented as oral presentations or posters,
but only regular workshop papers will be included in the proceedings
published in the ACL Anthology, where no distinction will be made on the
basis of mode of presentation.

The regular workshop papers can be long papers (maximum length of eight (8)
pages of content) as well as short papers (maximum length of four (4) pages
of content), and should report substantially original research. Reviews will
be double-blind.

In addition to unpublished work, in the spirit of promoting discussion in the
UD community, we also solicit papers on related topics that have already
appeared elsewhere. The selection of these papers will solely be determined
by the organizing committee.
