1st Call for Papers

SIGUL 2022 Workshop <https://sigul-2022.ilc.cnr.it/>

a post-Conference Workshop of LREC 2022

Marseille (FR), 24-25 June 2022

*paper submission deadline: 11 April 2022*

The 1st Annual Meeting of the ELRA/ISCA Special Interest Group on Under-Resourced Languages (SIGUL 2022) will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in text and speech processing for under-resourced languages by academic and industry researchers. SIGUL 2022 will carry on the tradition of the CCURL-SLTU (Collaboration and Computing for Under-Resourced Languages – Spoken Language Technologies for Under-resourced languages) Workshop Series, which has been organised since 2008 and, as LREC Workshops, since 2014. As usual, this Workshop spans the research interest areas of less-resourced, under-resourced, endangered, minority and minoritized languages. Since this year LREC includes a track dedicated specifically to endangered and less-resourced languages, the workshop aims to be a venue for networking and discussion as much as for scientific debate.

Over the last years,research in NLP for less-resourced languages has taken momentum. The multiplication of research interest makes it even more necessary for the community that revolves around less-resourced languages to find opportunities for aggregation and discussion. Following the long-standing series of previous meetings, the SIGUL venue will provide a forum for the presentation of cutting edge research in NLP, MT and Speech Technologies for under-resourced languages to both academic and industry researchers, and also to offer a venue where researchers in different disciplines and from varied backgrounds can fruitfully explore new areas of intellectual and practical development while honouring their common interest of sustaining less-resourced languages.

Topics include but are not limited to:


General research on under-resourced languages.


Transfer-learning techniquesfor under-resourced languages(use of

multilingual, pretrained models, unsupervised, semi-supervised,

zero-shot, few-shot training,...) in NLP, MT and Speech technologies.


We also invite position paperson methodological, ethical, or

institutional issues
