Celtic Language Technology Workshop (CLTW 2014) http://fionlive2.dcu.ie/cltw2014/

Co-located with COLING 2014, August 23rd, Dublin, Ireland

Call for Papers Submission Deadline: May 2nd 2014

Language Technology and Computational Linguistics research innovations in recent years have given us a great deal of modern language processing tools and resources for many languages. Basic language tools like spell and grammar checkers through to interactive systems like Siri, as well as resources like the Trillion Word Corpus, all fit together to produce products and services which enhance our daily lives.

Until relatively recently, languages with smaller numbers of speakers have largely not benefited from attention in this field. However, modern techniques in the field are making it easier to create language tools and resources from fewer resources in a faster time. In this light, many lesser spoken languages are making their way into the digital age through the provision of language technologies and resources.

The Celtic Language Technology Workshop (CLTW) series of workshops provides a forum for researchers interested in developing NLP (Natural Language Processing) resources and technologies for Celtic languages. As Celtic languages are under-resourced, our goal is to encourage collaboration and communication between researchers working on language technologies and resources for Celtic languages.

Areas of Interest: The CLTW welcomes both theoretical and practical submissions on any Celtic language that contribute to research in the area of automated language processing, language technologies or resources for same. We will particularly encourage studies that address the lack of resources available for a given language in this field.

Topics of interest for the CLTW workshop include but are not limited to:

- Language resources - Syntax, semantics, grammar, lexicons - Phonology / morphology, tagging - Morphological analysis - Part-of-speech taggers - Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) - Translation memory - Machine translation - Parsing / chunking - Ontologies, terminology and knowledge representation - Speech processing / generation - Digital humanities - Corpus development / analysis - Treebanking - Evaluation methods - Ontology-lexica - Metadata - Linked data resources - Linguistic linked data resources - Semantic annotation - Information Extraction

Important Dates: Paper submission deadline: 2nd May 2014 Author notification deadline: 6th June 2014 Camera-ready paper deadline: 27th June 2014

How to Submit:

Authors are invited to submit long papers (up to 8 pages + references) and short papers (up to 4 pages + references). Long papers should describe unpublished, substantial and completed original research. Short papers should be position papers, papers describing original work in progress or short, focused contributions.

Submissions will be accepted until May, 2 , 2014, (11:59 p.m. GMT) in PDF format via the START system (https://www.softconf.com/coling2014/WS-10/) and must be formatted using the COLING style files.

Reviewing will be double-blind.
