WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION There has been a lot of progress in the last 15 years in the area of Arabic Natural Language Processing (NLP).  Many Arabic NLP (or Arabic NLP-related) workshops and conferences have taken place, both in the Arab World and in association with international conferences. This workshop follows in the footsteps of previous efforts to provide a forum for researchers to share and discuss their ongoing work. 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, specialized databases 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. Descriptions of commercial systems are welcome, but authors should be willing to discuss the details of their work.  Submissions are expected to be 8 pages long plus 2 pages for references. Associated with the workshop will be a shared task on Arabic text error correction (details below). SHARED TASK DESCRIPTION Following the success of the First Shared Task on Automatic Arabic Error Correction in the Arabic NLP Workshop 2014 (WANLP-2014, EMNLP, Doha), we will conduct the Second Shared Task on Automatic Arabic Error Correction as part of WANLP-2015.   Similar to the 2014 competition, the task relies on resources created under the Qatar Arabic Language Bank (QALB) project.  In addition to the correction of Arabic native text (news comments), the 2015 shared task will include an additional correction of non-native texts. In order to participate, you need to use this link to register and receive the training data.  Also you need to subscribe to the QALB discussion group to receive the shared task notifications. Participants are expected to also submit a short system description paper (4 pages + 2 for references).    The shared task will use the following calendar: February 15: Release of the initial training dataApril 1: Final Release of the training dataApril 30: Registration deadlineMay 16: Test set availableMay 24: Systems' outputs collectedMay 31: System description paper deadlineJune 1: Shared task results and answers keys to be announcedJune 7: Shared task paper notificationJune 21: Camera ready deadline for the system description paperJuly 30: ACL 2015 Workshop in Beijing
