Full Title: Acta Linguistica Hungarica 


Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Computational Linguistics; General Linguistics; Language Documentation; Morphology; Text/Corpus Linguistics 

Language Family(ies): Uralic 

Call Deadline: 10-Oct-2016 

Deadline extension: Special issue of Acta Linguistica Hungarica on
Computational Linguistics for Uralic Languages

The special issue is related to the Second International Workshop on
Computational Linguistics for Uralic Languages (SIWCLUL). The workshop was
held in Szeged, Hungary, on 20 January 2016, aiming to bring together
researchers working on computational approaches to working with the following
languages: Finnish, Hungarian, Estonian, Voru, Setu, the Sámi languages, Komi
(Zyrian, Permyak), Mordvin (Erzya, Moksha), Mari (Hill, Meadow), Udmurt,
Nenets (Tundra, Forest), Enets (Tundra, Forest), Nganasan, Selkup, Mansi,
Khanty, Veps, Karelian, Ingrian (Izhorian), Votic, Livonian, Ludic, Kven and
other related languages.

All Uralic languages exhibit rich morphological structure, which makes
processing them challenging for state-of-the-art computational linguistic
approaches, the majority also suffer from a lack of resources and many are
endangered.

We invite submissions of articles describing work-in-progress systems,
frameworks, standards and evaluation schemes. A natural candidate for this
call is an extended paper from the workshop presentations (either oral or
poster presentations) and tutorials. However, we do not limit the
contributions to SIWCLUL-related works. Instead, other works presenting
computational linguistics support for Uralic languages are also welcome.

Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to):

- Parsers, analysers and processing pipelines of Uralic languages.
- Lexical databases, electronic dictionaries.
- Finished end-user applications aimed at Uralic languages, such as spelling
or grammar checkers, machine translation or speech processing.
- Evaluation methods and gold standards, tagged corpora, treebanks.
- Reports on language-independent or unsupervised methods as applied to Uralic
languages.
- Surveys and review articles on subjects related to computational linguistics
for one or more Uralic languages.
- Any work that aims at combining efforts and reducing duplication of work.
- How to elicit activity from the language community, agitation campaigns,
games with a purpose.

To maximise the possibility of reproducibility, replication and reuse, we
particularly encourage submissions which present free/open-source language
resources and make use of free/open-source software.

One of the aims of this gathering is to avoid unnecessary duplicated work in
field of Uralistics by establishing connections and interoperability standards
between researchers and research groups working at different sites. We have
also identified a serious lack of gold standards and evaluation metrics for
all Uralic languages including those with national support, any work towards
better resources in these fields will be greatly appreciated.

To prepare the papers, please follow the style guidelines provided by the Acta
Linguistica Hungarica journal.
