The First Workshop on Multi-Language Processing in a Globalising World (MLP 2017)

September 4-5, Dublin City University, Ireland



*MLP 2017 **Call for Abstracts*

The First Workshop on Multi-Language Processing in a Globalising World (MLP2017), organized by ADAPT Centre, Dublin City University (DCU), Ireland, will be held at DCU on September 4–5, 2017. ​ Globalisation has, on the one hand, brought us significant growth in free international trade and cross-cultural communication, as well as access to newly-developed technology, media, education, healthcare, consumer goods, etc. On the other hand, it may have negative impacts on local societies, such as cultural homogenisation. To embrace cultural diversity and multilingual phenomena, experts with research interests in different languages are invited to participate in this workshop. This international workshop will be organised as a forum and we invite natural language processing researchers and linguists to come together to discuss the current status and future directions of research in multilingualism and minority languages in this globalising world. ​ The workshop aims to provide a research forum dedicated to state-of-the-art methods and techniques on multi-language and cross-language processing and exploring the use of such technologies in specific tasks. The workshop will solicit original and ongoing research contributions related to the theme, which includes but are not limited to:


Theoretical and applied linguistic research for multilinguality and

minority languages


Text encoding theory and transcoding techniques


Resource construction, such as multilingual corpora and corpora for

minority languages


Speech, lexical, syntactic, semantic analytics for multiple languages or

minority languages


Cross-language adaptation for natural language processing


Multi-language, cross-language and minority language processing methods

and applications in machine translation, speech recognition, information

retrieval etc.


Evaluation metrics for multi-language, cross-language and minority

language processing


Multi-language, cross-language and minority language processing for

social media and user generated content


Deep learning and expressions for multi-language processing


Minority languages in emergency responses and security/disaster



Multi-language or cross-language named entity recognition, entity

relation extraction and event extraction


Multi-language or cross-language linked data or knowledge graph


Multi-language or cross-language anaphora resolution and discourse



Multi-language or cross-language sentiment analysis


Multi-language or cross-language text classification and generation


Transliteration and machine translation

The language of the Workshop is English. Abstract submissions may include research results as well as work in progress.
