3rd International Workshop on Computational Approaches to Historical Language Change 2022 (LChange’22)

May 26-27, co-located with ACL

Workshop description

The third LChange workshop will be co-located with ACL (2022) to be held in Dublin, during May 26-27, 2022 as a hybrid event.


All aspects around computational approaches to historical language

change with the focus on digital text corpora are welcome. LChange explores

state-of-the-art computational methodologies, theories and digital text

resources on exploring the time-varying nature of human language.


The aim of this workshop is to provide pioneering researchers who work

on computational methods, evaluation, and large-scale modelling of language

change an outlet for disseminating research on topics concerning language

change. Besides these goals, this workshop will also support discussion on

the evaluation of computational methodologies for uncovering language



LChange’22 will feature a shared task on semantic change detection for

Spanish as one track of the workshop.

This year we will offer mentoring for PhD students and young researchers in one-on-one meetings during the workshop. If you are interested, send us a short description of your work and we will set you up with one of the organizers of this workshop. If your paper is rejected from the workshop, we can also provide advice on improving it for future submission. This offer is limited, and will be chosen based on topical fit and availability of appropriate mentors. Deadline for applying for mentorship is May 30th via <PC-ACLws2022 at languagechange.org>.

Via our sponsor, Iguanodon.ai <http://iguanodon.ai>, we can offer one free registration for a PhD student! Apply by emailing us your short cv and why you need your registration paid.

We accept three types of submissions, long and short papers, following the ACL2022 style, and the ACL submission policy, and shared task papers. See ACL submission policy:


Long and short papers may consist of up to eight (8) and four (4) pages of content, respectively, plus unlimited references; final versions will be given one additional page of content so that reviewers' comments can be taken into account. Shared task papers may consist of up to four (4) pages plus unlimited references, but without an additional page upon acceptance. Overleaf templates are available here: https://www.overleaf.com/project/5f64f1fb97c4c50001b60549

Submission is electronic, using the ACL Rolling Review (ARR), and is now open: https://openreview.net/group?id=aclweb.org/ACL/2022/Workshop/LChange

We invite original research papers from a wide range of topics, including but not limited to: * Novel methods for detecting diachronic semantic change and lexical replacement * Automatic discovery and quantitative evaluation of laws of language change * Computational theories and generative models of language change * Sense-aware (semantic) change analysis * Diachronic word sense disambiguation * Novel methods for diachronic analysis of low-resource languages * Novel methods for diachronic linguistic data visualization * Novel applications and implications of language change detection * Quantification of sociocultural influences on language change * Cross-linguistic, phylogenetic, and developmental approaches to language change * Novel datasets for cross-linguistic and diachronic analyses of language

Submissions are open to all, and are to be submitted anonymously. All papers will be refereed through a double-blind peer review process by at least three reviewers with final acceptance decisions made by the workshop organizers.

The workshop is scheduled for May 26-27. Contact us at PC-ACLws2022 at languagechange.org if you have any questions.
