Meeting Description:

OpenCor Forum 2018 will be held in conjunction with PROPOR 2018. The forum
aims both to fill the gap of having a permanent venue for construction,
annotation, and maintenance of open corpora for Latin American and Iberian
languages and to create an extensive list of these resources. OpenCor welcomes
discussions on Portuguese, Spanish, indigenous languages, creoles, Galician,
Catalan, Aragonese, Astur-Leonese, Aranese and any other language spoken in
Latin America and Iberian countries.  Work on endangered languages, minority,
and/or less resourced languages are particularly welcome.


2nd Call for Papers:

Deadline extended August 2, 2018

This forum aims both to fill the gap of having a permanent venue for
construction, annotation, and maintenance of open corpora for Latin American
and Iberian languages and to create an extensive list of these resources.
OpenCor welcomes discussions on Portuguese, Spanish, indigenous languages,
creoles, Galician, Catalan, Aragonese, Astur-Leonese, Aranese and any other
language spoken in Latin America and Iberian countries. Work on endangered
languages, minority, and/or less resourced languages are particularly welcome.

The Venue:

This is the first edition of OpenCor Forum, an attempt to gather the community
that produces, maintains and makes freely available language resources for the
large variety of languages spoken in Iberian countries and in Latin America.
All accepted works will also be part of the OpenCor list, an initiate to have
cataloged open resources produced for the targeted languages.

This forum welcomes, but it is not restricted to, the following topics:
- releases of new open data sets
- descriptions of established open corpora
- guidelines creation, annotation strategies, and best practices discussion
- corpora maintenance and management
- corpora curation and assessment
- corpora design and evaluation
- corpora creation strategies and difficulties faced by the community

Submissions:

We invite submissions of anonymized extended abstracts up to 2 pages.
Documents must follow the same style as PROPOR 2018 (Springer LNCS) and must
be submitted in English. Submissions should begin with an abstract of 200
words or less. Accepted extended abstracts will be made available in the forum
web page for a short period. OpenCor is non-archival, therefore works that
have been or are planned to be published elsewhere are also welcome.

Authors need to submit together with the extended abstract the link for their
resources. One of the goals of OpenCor is to provide a full list of resources
and described languages by the end of the forum. We hope this list will be
helpful in keeping track of freely available resources for our targeted
languages.

Considering that one of the main challenges for these communities is funding
raising, all accepted works will be available in the forum page and will
appear in the resources list, even if no author can attend the forum. This is
an attempt to create an extensive list of open corpora available that does not
rely on how much funding the working groups have. In the moment of the
submission, authors would be requested if their work should be considered for
a talk/poster. We encourage authors that know they won’t be present at the
forum but want to have their work in OpenCor List, to send to the organizers a
one-page hand-out that will be available to the forum participants during the
session.
