Queer in AI @ NAACL 2022: Call for Contributions

We are excited to announce our call for contributions for the Queer in AI Workshop at the NAACL 2022 Conference! We are calling for research papers on queer issues in natural language processing and linguistics. In addition, we are also interested in general research done by queer researchers. Accepted works will be linked to our website and invited to present at the NAACL 2022 Conference. The submissions need not be directly related to the themes of the workshop, and they can be works in progress. No submissions will be desk-rejected.

We invite the submissions in the following tracks:

* Queer linguistics: This track invites submissions of studies related to the language around gender and sexuality. For example, the application of ideas from queer theory to language research or providing an overview of the discursive formation of heteronormativity. Some examples are: trans linguistic activism<https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eOMQ-9hGy5C5lUlWGt-MrV6B50JduETV/view>, queer neomorphemes<https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fataspd.org%2F2020%2F10%2F07%2Fyou-me-hir-and-non-binary-language%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHOwQJEM0MnpwlZwGdCNReJ0FT9sw>, strategies for gender-inclusive language reform<https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.eriesd.org%2Fcms%2Flib%2FPA01001942%2FCentricity%2FDomain%2F1491%2FZimman2017TransgenderLanguageReform.pdf&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNG3zi4dMnl3ZoB78mB8EU3_MjO7jw>.

* Queer AI and NLP: This track invites submissions at the intersection between NLP and queerness. Possible themes could be the usage of NLP to analyze queer language or discovering flaws behind NLP methodologies which may harm queer folks. Some examples are: <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Farxiv.org%2Fabs%2F2108.12084&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHrnlHv3GHpvQb_HjLzi3O0BFkG-A> harms regarding non-binary representation in language models<https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Farxiv.org%2Fabs%2F2108.12084&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHrnlHv3GHpvQb_HjLzi3O0BFkG-A>, <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Faclanthology.org%2FW17-1601%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNGyYmj3ix3tFrg-5Rnl3l_QY5Y9wQ> ethical considerations on using gender as a variable<https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Faclanthology.org%2FW17-1601%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNGyYmj3ix3tFrg-5Rnl3l_QY5Y9wQ> or <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Farxiv.org%2Fpdf%2F2110.09271.pdf&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHk_RVX12fm11rPONgDlsGeTLZmAQ> making policies related to AI and gender-diversity.<https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Farxiv.org%2Fpdf%2F2110.09271.pdf&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHk_RVX12fm11rPONgDlsGeTLZmAQ>

* Queer activism and D&I: This track invites submissions related to issues with queer inclusivity in NLP events and solutions to increase it. We also invite stories and strategies for queer activism in tech and academia, as well as artifacts and tools to promote queer advocacy. Some examples are: <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fsites.google.com%2Fview%2Fqueer-in-ai%2Fdiversity-guide%3Fauthuser%3D0&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHUdRd5NDymbfP7HaGA8XcwIsp25A> Queer in AI’s guide on conference inclusivity<https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fsites.google.com%2Fview%2Fqueer-in-ai%2Fdiversity-guide%3Fauthuser%3D0&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHUdRd5NDymbfP7HaGA8XcwIsp25A>, <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fpublicationethics.org%2Fnews%2Fvision-more-trans-inclusive-publishing-world&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNEJZqU4DV_EXjYZOZ1wMlr2eVdwEw> best practices for inclusive name change policies<https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fpublicationethics.org%2Fnews%2Fvision-more-trans-inclusive-publishing-world&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNEJZqU4DV_EXjYZOZ1wMlr2eVdwEw> and <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fpubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov%2F32747775%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNEBBi3mVEUmaUnfDfZd3TyX3YRTwQ> analyzing diversity in ecology conferences.<https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fpubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov%2F32747775%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNEBBi3mVEUmaUnfDfZd3TyX3YRTwQ>

* Research symposia: This track invites submissions by queer folks in the NLP and linguistics community. The topics in this track do not need to be queer-related, however, they should fit within NLP or linguistics.
