SIGMORPHON 2021: 18th SIGMORPHON Workshop on Computational Research in Phonetics, Phonology, and Morphology

co-located with ACL-IJCNLP 2021

August 5/6, 2021

Bangkok, Thailand (now virtually hosted online: details to be announced on webpage)

SIGMORPHON aims to bring together researchers interested in applying computational techniques to problems in morphology, phonology, and phonetics. Work that addresses orthographic issues is also welcome. Papers will be on substantial, original, and unpublished research on these topics, potentially including strong work in progress. Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to) the following as they relate to the areas of the workshop:


New formalisms, computational treatments, or probabilistic models of

existing linguistic formalisms


Unsupervised, semi-supervised, or machine learning of linguistic



Analysis or exploitation of multilingual, multi-dialectal, or diachronic



Integration of morphology, phonology, or phonetics with other NLP tasks


Algorithms for string analysis and manipulation, including finite-state



Models of psycholinguistic experiments


Approaches to orthographic variation


Approaches to morphological reinflection


Corpus linguistics


Machine transliteration and back-transliteration


Morpheme identification and word segmentation


Speech technologies relating to phonetics or phonology


Speech science (both production and comprehension)


Instructional technologies for second-language learners


Tools and resources

SIGMORPHON encourages interaction between work in computational linguistics and work in theoretical phonetics, phonology and morphology, and to ensure that each of these fields profits from the interaction. Our recent meetings have been successful in this regard, and we hope to see this continue in 2021.

Many mainstream linguists studying phonetics, phonology and morphology are employing computational tools and models that are of considerable interest to computational linguists. Similarly, models and tools developed by and for computational linguists may be of interest to theoretical linguists working in these areas. This workshop provides a forum for these researchers to interact and become exposed to each others’ ideas and research.

Important Dates:

April 26, 2021: Workshop Paper Due Date May 28, 2021: Notification of Acceptance June 7, 2021: Camera-ready papers due August 5/6, 2021: Workshop Date

Paper submission:



Long papers should be original, topical, and clear. Completed work is preferable to intended work. Either way, the paper must disclose the state of completion of the reported results. We also encourage short submissions. These can either cover research or describe important problems (new or old). Short papers can cover a work-in-progress, but should contain at least preliminary results and discussion.

Submission format

The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. Submissions should be anonymous, without authors or an acknowledgement section; self-citations should appear in third person. Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings, and long papers should not exceed eight (8) pages, short papers should not exceed four (4) pages. Unlimited additional pages are allowed for the references section in both cases. However, all material other than the bibliography must fall within the first 8/4 pages! We encourage the submission of supplemental material such as data and code, as well as appendices; however, supplemental material should not be essential for the understanding of the submission. We strongly recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word document template on the ACL conference website. We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles, including font size restrictions.

Anonymity period:

SIGMORPHON 2021 adopts ACL’s policies for submission, review, and citation. Submissions that violate any of these policies will be rejected without review. Most importantly, the policies refer to the anonymity period, which begins one month before the 2021 submission deadline and ends at time of notification (or withdrawal).

Invited Talks:

SIGMORPHON is pleased to welcome the following invited speakers to our workshop:

Kenny Smith, University of Edinburgh Reut Tsarfaty, Bar-Ilan University Ekaterina Vylomova, University of Melbourne Kristine Yu, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

Shared Task:

This year, SIGMORPHON is hosting 3 Shared tasks:


Task 0: Generalization in Morphological Inflection Generation

Task 1: Grapheme-to-phoneme conversion

Task 2: Unsupervised Morphological Paradigm Clustering

More information to come.
