*The Fifth workshop on Universal Dependencies*

UDW 2021 will be held at the SyntaxFest in Sofia, during the week of March 21-March 25, 2022. The event will be held online, face-to-face or hybrid, depending on the health situation. The proceedings will be published preemptively, in December 2021. The call for papers is available here: https://universaldependencies.org/udw21/cfp.html More information about SyntaxFest here: https://syntaxfest.github.io/

Universal Dependencies (UD) is a framework for cross-linguistically consistent treebank annotation that has so far been applied to over 100 languages (https://universaldependencies.org/). The framework is aiming to capture similarities as well as idiosyncrasies among typologically different languages (e.g., morphologically rich languages, pro-drop languages, and languages featuring clitic doubling). The goal in developing UD was not only to support comparative evaluation and cross-lingual learning but also to facilitate multilingual natural language processing and enable comparative linguistic studies.

The Universal Dependencies workshop series was started to create a forum for discussion of the theory and practice of UD, its use in research and development, and its future goals and challenges. The four workshops so far were held at NoDaLiDa in Gothenburg (2017), at EMNLP in Brussels (2018), at SyntaxFest in Paris (2019) and at COLING online (2020). The fifth workshop on Universal Dependencies invites papers on all topics relevant to UD, including but not limited to: * theoretical foundations and universal guidelines * linguistic analysis of specific languages and/or constructions * language typology and linguistic universals * treebank annotation, conversion and validation * word segmentation, morphological tagging and syntactic parsing * downstream applications in natural language processing * linguistic studies based on the UD data

Priority will be given to papers that adopt a cross-lingual perspective.


*Submission information*

We invite two types of submissions: long papers and short papers. * Long papers may consist of up to 10 pages of content (excluding references); * Short papers may consist of up to 6 pages of content (excluding references).

Papers must be submitted in PDF format exclusively through the SyntaxFest joint EasyChair submission page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=syntaxfest2021. On the submission page, authors submit their paper only once for the whole SyntaxFest, composed of 4 conferences, but they can uncheck conferences they do not wish their paper to be considered for. If the paper is deemed appropriate for more than one of the selected conferences, the SyntaxFest joint organization committee decides on the final placement of the paper, which implies the day of the presentation and the proceedings the paper will appear in.
