FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
The ACL Special Interest Group on Natural Language Parsing (SIGPARSE) invites submissions to its biennial conference on parsing technologies. IWPT 2021 will be the 17th conference in a series that started in 1989. The conference will be held as a virtual event at ACL-IJCNLP on August 5 or 6, 2021.
+ Submissions (short and long papers): May 5, 2021 (anywhere on Earth) + Notification of acceptance: May 28, 2021 + Camera-ready manuscripts due: June 7, 2021 + One-day conference: August 5 or 6, 2021

IWPT addresses all aspects of structural analysis of natural language, including but not limited to:
+ Parsing of natural language (phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, discourse, etc.) + Formal models and algorithms for recognition, parsing and transduction + Machine learning techniques for syntax and parsing + Complexity of languages, models and algorithms + Learning of recursive structure (linguistic/latent) + Parsing in machine translation (synchronous parsing; alignment by parsing; translation by parsing, etc.) + Cognitive models of language processing + Multilingual and multimodal perspectives on syntax and parsing + Domain and genre adaptation, portability and robustness of parsing systems + Practical applications of parsing technology + Parser evaluation (across languages and frameworks) + Neural network models for linguistic structure prediction + Combining distributional and symbolic signals for linguistic structure prediction + Syntactic typology for multilingual modeling + Parsing low-resource languages and cross-lingual or domain transfer + Interpretation of linguistic structure in deep learning models + Integration of morphology via character-based models, subword embeddings, and beyond
IWPT 2021 SHARED TASK
Continuing the series of parsing-oriented shared tasks established at IWPT 2020, the 2021 IWPT Shared Task will be on Multilingual Parsing into Enhanced Universal Dependencies.
Additional details about the IWPT 2021 shared can be found here: https://universaldependencies.org/iwpt21/
Papers must be submitted through the following page: https://www.softconf.com/acl2021/w23_IWPT
All submissions must follow the ACL 2021 guidelines. Style templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word are available at the following web site: https://2021.aclweb.org/calls/papers/#submissions
Submissions must be anonymous, i.e. not reveal author(s) on the title page or through self-references. Paper submissions that violate this requirement will be rejected without review.
The page limits for submissions are: up to nine pages of content for regular papers, and up to four pages of content for short papers; any additional number of pages can be used for bibliographic references.
Following the ACL-IJCNLP 2021 multiple submission policy, IWPT 2021 welcomes dual-submissions between ACL-IJCNLP 2021 and IWPT 2021.
