Meeting Description:

15th SIGMORPHON Workshop on Computational Research in Phonetics, Phonology,
and Morphology

SIGMORPHON encourages interaction between work in computational and
theoretical linguistics. Approaches to phonetics, phonology, and morphology
profit from the interaction. Our recent meetings have been successful in this
regard, and this will continue in 2018. The workshop allows cross-pollination
of tools and models between theoretical and computational linguists.

Co-located with EMNLP 2018
Brussels, Belgium
October 31, 2018

Final Call for Papers:

The workshop will gather researchers who apply computation to morphology,
phonology, and phonetics. Work that addresses orthographic issues is also
welcome. Papers will present significant, original, and unpublished research,
including strong work in progress. Appropriate topics include (but are not
limited to) the following:

- New formalisms, computational treatments, or probabilistic models of
existing linguistic formalisms
- Unsupervised, semi-supervised or machine learning of linguistic knowledge
- Models of psycholinguistic experiments
- Morpheme identification and word segmentation
- Algorithms, including finite-state methods
- Corpus linguistics
- Machine transliteration and back-transliteration
- Speech technologies relating to phonetics or phonology
- Speech science (both production and comprehension)
- Analysis or exploitation of multilingual, multi-dialectal, or diachronic
- Instructional technologies for second-language learners
- Integration of morphology, phonology, or phonetics with other NLP tasks
- Tools and resources
- Approaches to orthographic variation
- Approaches to universal morphological reinflection

Important Dates:

- 13 July 2018: Paper submission deadline
- 18 August 2018: Notification of acceptance
- 31 August 2018: Camera-ready papers due
- 31 October 2018: Workshop

Paper Submission:

Content: There are two categories of papers: Long and short papers. Long
papers should be original, topical, and clear. Completed work is preferable to
intended work. Either way, the paper must disclose the state of completion of
the reported results. Short submissions can either cover research or describe
important problems (new or old).

Submission format:

The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. Submissions should
be anonymous, without authors or an acknowledgement section; self-citations
should appear in third person. Submissions should follow the two-column format
of EMNLP proceedings, and long papers should not exceed eight (8) pages, short
papers should not exceed four (4) pages. Unlimited additional pages are
allowed for the References section in both cases. However, all material other
than the bibliography must fall within the first 8/4 pages! We strongly
recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word document template
on the EMNLP conference web site. We reserve the right to reject submissions
that do not conform to these styles, including font size restrictions.

Important: New submission guidelines

EMNLP 2018 adopts ACL's new policies for submission, review, and citation.
Submissions that violate any of these policies will be rejected without
review. Most importantly, the policies refer to the anonymity period, which
begins one month before the SIGMORPHON 2018 deadline and ends at time of
notification (or withdrawal).

Online submission is available at:


Sandra Kübler, Indiana University
Garrett Nicolai, Johns Hopkins University

The list of program committee members is available on the workshop webpage.

Shared Task:

SIGMORPHON is co-hosting the CoNLL-SIGMORPHON 2018 Shared Task on Universal
Morphological Reinflection: https://sigmorphon.github.io/sharedtasks/2018/

Shared Task Organizers:

Ryan Cotterell, Johns Hopkins University
Mans Hulden, University of Colorado
