Call For Papers

The 4th Arabic Natural Language Processing Workshop (WANLP 2019) will take place on August 1-2, 2019 in Florence, Italy. The workshop is collocated with ACL 2019.

We invite submissions on topics that include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Basic core technologies: morphological analysis, disambiguation, tokenization, POS tagging, named entity detection, chunking, parsing, semantic role labeling, sentiment analysis, Arabic dialect modeling, etc.

- Applications: machine translation, speech recognition, speech synthesis, optical character recognition, pedagogy, assistive technologies, social media, etc.

- Resources: dictionaries, annotated data, corpus, etc.



Submissions may include work in progress as well as finished work. Submissions must have a clear focus on specific issues pertaining to the Arabic language whether it is standard Arabic, dialectal, or mixed.

Additionally, papers on efforts using Arabic resources but targeting other languages are also welcome. Descriptions of commercial systems are welcome, but authors should be willing to discuss the details of their work.
