Call for papers

The purpose of the conference series International Workshop on

Computational Linguistics for Uralic Languages is to bring together

researchers working on computational approaches to working with these

languages. We accept long and short papers as well as tutorial

proposals working on the following languages: Finnish, Hungarian,

Estonian, Võro, the Sámi languages, Komi (Zyrian, Permyak), Mordvin

(Erzya, Moksha), Mari (Hill, Meadow), Udmurt, Nenets (Tundra, Forest),

Enets, Nganasan, Selkup, Mansi, Khanty, Veps, Karelian (Olonets),

Karelian, Ingrian (Izhorian), Votic, Livonian, Ludic, and other related

languages.

All Uralic languages exhibit rich morphological structure, which makes

processing them challenging for state-of-the-art computational

linguistic approaches, the majority also suffer from a lack of

resources and many are endangered.

Research papers should be original, substantial and unpublished

research, that can describe work-in-progress systems, frameworks,

standards and evaluation schemes. Demos and tutorials will present

systems and standards towards the goal of interoperability and

unification of different projects, applications and research groups

Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to):

* Parsers, analysers and processing pipelines of Uralic languages

* Lexical databases, electronic dictionaries

* Finished end-user applications aimed at Uralic languages, such as

spelling or grammar checkers, machine translation or speech

processing

* Evaluation methods and gold standards, tagged corpora, treebanks

* Reports on language-independent or unsupervised methods as applied

to Uralic languages

* Surveys and review articles on subjects related to computational

linguistics for one or more Uralic languages

* Any work that aims at combining efforts and reducing duplication of

work

* How to elicit activity from the language community, agitation

campaigns, games with a purpose

To maximise the possibility of reproducibility, replication and reuse,

we particularly encourage submissions which present free/open-source

language resources and make use of free/open-source software. One of

the aims of this gathering is to avoid unnecessary duplicated work in

field of Uralistics by establishing connections and interoperability

standards between researchers and research groups working at different

sites. We have also identified a serious lack of gold standards and

evaluation metrics for all Uralic languages including those with

national support, any work towards better resources in these fields

will be greatly appreciated.

In this year’s edition, we encourage people to present comparative

evaluations of different NLP methods as applied to Uralic languages.

With all the buzz around neural and deep-learning methods: Are they

applicable to Uralic languages, which in general have very little

training data --- even monolingual data --- and also richer morphology

than the more widely treated Indo-European languages.

Submission of papers

Language of submission: Submissions should be made in English or

Russian with an obligatory abstract in at least one of the Uralic

Language(s).

Double submission: To maximise the impact of work in the field of

computational linguistics for the Uralic languages we are open to the

possibility of double submission, or submission of work which has been

partially published elsewhere. Any double submission should however be

reported to the programme committee at the time of submission. In the

advent of double acceptance the authors should choose in which venue to

publish.

Publication venue: Proceedings of the workshop will be published

open-access in ACL anthology, SIG proceedings for SIGUR.

Conflicts of interest: The reviewing process will be anonymous

(double-blind peer review).

Submission Guidelines: Submit via easychair. The LaTeX templates are

here:

[6]https://github.com/acl-sigur/iwclul-latex/releases/tag/iwclul-2019.

You may also submit a PDF generated from a Word Document or other LaTeX

template, but if the paper is accepted you will need to format the

camera-ready version according to the guidelines. There are no hard

limits for page counts but for the benefit of reviewers please make it

approximately 5-20 pages depending on the page layout.
