Third Workshop on Research in Computational Typology and Multilingual NLP (SIGTYP2021) (co-located with NAACL 2021; June, 10th 2021; Mexico City, Mexico)

*Workshop description*

The aim of the third edition of SIGTYP workshop is to act as a platform and a forum for the exchange of information between typology-related research, multilingual NLP, and other research areas that can lead to the development of truly multilingual NLP methods. The workshop is specifically aimed at raising awareness of linguistic typology and its potential in supporting and widening the global reach of multilingual NLP, as well as at introducing computational approaches to linguistic typology. It will foster research and discussion on open problems, not only within the active community working on cross- and multilingual NLP but also inviting input from leading researchers in linguistic typology.

Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to) the following as they relate to the areas of the workshop: — Language-independence in training, architecture design, and hyperparameter tuning — Integration of typological features in language transfer and joint multilingual learning — New applications, the application of typology to currently uncharted territories — Automatic inference of typological features — Typology and interpretability, the use of typological knowledge for interpretation of hidden representations of multilingual neural models — Improvement and completion of typological databases — Linguistic diversity and universals, challenges of cross-lingual annotation

Starting from 2021, the workshop will be dedicated to a shared theme, a central topic that most keynote talks and discussions will be focused on. In 2021, we would like to follow up a recent debate on linguistic diversity (p-linguistics, the study of individual languages) and universalism (g-linguistics, the study of Human Language), see Haspelmath (2020); Evans and Levinson (2009).

*Keynote Speakers* Claire Bowern, Yale University Miryam de Lhoneux, Uppsala University Johannes Bjerva, Aalborg University David Yarowsky, Johns Hopkins University

*Important Dates (All deadlines are 23:59 AoE)* March 15, 2021: Paper submission deadline April 15, 2021: Notification of acceptance April 26, 2021: Camera-ready deadline June 10, 2021: Workshop

*Submissions* In 2021, we invite both extended abstract submissions (non-archival) and general paper submissions (archival). The accepted submissions will be presented at the workshop, providing new insights and ideas. Extended abstracts should describe already published work or work in progress and should not exceed two (2) pages. This way, we will not discourage researchers from preferring main conference proceedings, at the same time ensuring that interesting and thought-provoking research is presented at the workshop. For general (archival) submissions we accept both long and short papers. Short papers should not exceed four (4) pages, long papers should not exceed eight (8) pages. Unlimited additional pages are allowed for the references section in all submission types.

Submissions should be anonymous, without authors or an acknowledgement section; self-citations should appear in third person. Submissions should follow the NAACL-HLT 2021 style guidelines: https://2021.naacl.org/calls/style-and-formatting/; both long and short paper submissions must follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. All submissions must be in PDF format.

These should be submitted via softconf: https://www.softconf.com/naacl2021/sigtyp2021/

*Organizers* Ryan Cotterell, Ekaterina Vylomova, Elizabeth Salesky, Sabrina J. Mielke, Ritesh Kumar, Harald Hammarström, Anna Korhonen, Roi Reichart, Ivan Vulić, Gabriella Lapesa and Edoardo Maria Ponti
