IMPORTANT NEWS/CHANGES * Submission Deadline POSTPONED to MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2018 * Submission website is open: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=computel3
The ComputEL-3 workshop will focus on the use of computational methods in the study, support, and revitalization of endangered languages. The primary aim of the workshop is to continue narrowing the gap between computational linguists interested in working on methods for endangered languages, field linguists working on documenting these languages, and the language communities who are striving to maintain their languages.
We take seriously the goal of reaching all relevant communities. To support this goal, ComputEL-3 aims to alternate between co-location with computational linguistics conferences and with language documentation conferences. ComputEL-3 will take place 26-27 February, 2019, immediately preceding the 6th International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC6) hosted by the University of Hawai'i.
2nd CALL FOR PAPERS
Papers are invited which explore the interface and intersection of computational linguistics, documentary linguistics, and community-based language revitalization efforts. We encourage submissions which:
(i) examine the use of specific methods in the analysis of data from low-resource languages, with a focus on endangered languages, or propose new methods for analysis of such data,
(ii) propose new models for the collection, management, and deployment of data in endangered language settings, or
(iii) consider what concrete steps are required to allow for a more fruitful interaction between computer scientists, documentary linguists, and language communities.
The intention of the workshop is not merely to allow for the presentation of research on these topics, but also to continue building a network of computational linguists, documentary linguists, and community language activists who are able to effectively join together to serve their common interests.
In line with our goal of reaching different academic communities, we offer two different modes of submission under two different tracks: (a) linguistic community perspective and (b) academic perspective. The selected track will not influence the likelihood of acceptance. Camera-ready versions in the Proceedings will have the same length ranges for both submission tracks, according to the original Submission Format (see below).
SUBMISSION SITE AND DEADLINE
Submissions must be uploaded via EasyChair/ComputEL-3 (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=computel3) no later than October 22, 2018, 11:59PM (UTC-11, time zone of American Samoa). Please indicate clearly which of the two tracks and two modes (Extended abstract or Full short/long paper) you are submitting to.
All submissions must be anonymous and will be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by November 12, 2018.
Either of the two submission formats (A or B) can be used for submissions to both (a) the linguistic community and (b) the academic tracks (see above). The selection of submission format will not influence the likelihood of acceptance.
A. Extended abstract:
Please submit anonymous abstracts of up to 1500 words.
B. Full paper (short or long):
Please submit (anonymously) either long papers (max. 8 pages plus references) or short papers (max. 4 pages plus references) according to the style and formatting guidelines provided in the CompuEL-3 Style Files (which have template files for both LaTeX and Microsoft Word).
Authors whose presentations are selected for the conference will be eligible to submit their papers for online publication via the open-access ACL Anthology. Full and short papers will be allotted 1 additional page (altogether 5 and 9 pages) excluding references. Extended abstracts will be alloted 5 pages (according to the short paper format), excluding references. Camera-ready versions of the articles will be due on January 21, 2019.
We anticipate being able to support travel costs in some cases for students whose papers are accepted as well as scholars from lower income countries. Please contact the organizers at computel.workshop at gmail.com for further information.
