2nd Call for Papers
1st Joint SLTU (Spoken Language Technologies for Under-resourced
languages) and CCURL (Collaboration and Computing for Under-Resourced
SLTU-CCURL 2020 is endorsed by SIGUL, ELRA and ISCA.
Date: 11-12 May 2020
Venue: Palais du Pharo, Marseille, France
Submission Deadline: 14 February 2020
Submission page: https://www.softconf.com/lrec2020/SLTUCCURL2020/
Workshop Description and Objectives
The first joint SLTU-CCURL workshop, organized by SIGUL, a joint Special
Interest Group of the European Language Resources Association (ELRA) and
of the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), will
gather researchers working on speech processing and NLP for
We solicit papers and posters related to all areas of NLP , speech and
computational linguistics, as well as those at the intersection with
digital humanities and documentary linguistics, provided that they
address less-resourced languages.
The intention of this joint SLTU-CCURL workshop is not only to provide a
forum for the presentation of research, but also to offer a venue where
researchers in different disciplines and from varied backgrounds can
fruitfully explore new areas of intellectual and practical development
while honoring their common interest of sustaining less-resourced languages.
Topics of interest
Topics include but are not limited to:
-Language resource development, acquisition and representation
-Linguistic theories, corpus development and resources
-Linguistic and cognitive studies
-Unsupervised discovery of linguistic units
-Code switched lexical modeling
-Multi-lingual and cross-lingual (spoken, text) language processing
-Speech-to-text, text-to-speech and speech-to-speech processing
-Machine translation and dialogue systems
-NLP and speech technologies for under-resourced languages
Submission & Publication
Papers need to address less-resourced languages. They can contain an
analysis and insight into existing methods and problems; a description
of resources; an overview of the literature or of current initiatives,
or a combination of the above. Authors must declare if part of the paper
contains material previously published elsewhere.
We accept submission of long papers (up to 8 pages, to be presented as
long presentations) and short papers (up to 4 pages, to be presented as
posters or demos). The program committee reserves the right to decide
whether a paper submitted as a long paper is better suited for a poster
presentation. Page limits exclude references.
The papers of the workshop will be published in online proceedings.
Papers must strictly comply with the LREC stylesheet
(https://lrec2020.lrec-conf.org/en/submission2020/authors-kit/) and be
submitted in PDF unprotected format.
Submission page: https://www.softconf.com/lrec2020/SLTUCCURL2020/
Each submission will be reviewed by three programme committee members.
In compliance with the LREC rules, papers must not be anonymized.
- Paper submission deadline: 14 February 2020
- Notification of acceptance: 13 March 2020
- Camera-ready paper: 2 April 2020
- Workshop date: 11-12 May 2020

Identify, Describe and Share your LRs!
Describing your LRs in the LRE Map is now a normal practice in the
submission procedure of LREC (introduced in 2010 and adopted by other
conferences). To continue the efforts initiated at LREC 2014 about
“Sharing LRs” (data, tools, web-services, etc.), authors will have the
possibility, when submitting a paper, to upload LRs in a special LREC
repository. This effort of sharing LRs, linked to the LRE Map for their
description, may become a new “regular” feature for conferences in our
field. This will contribute to creating a common repository where
everyone can deposit and share data.
As scientific work requires accurate citations of referenced work so as
to allow the community to understand the whole context and also to allow
the replication of the experiments conducted by other researchers, LREC
2020 endorses the need to uniquely Identify LRs through the use of the
International Standard Language Resource Number (ISLRN,www.islrn.org
<http://www.islrn.org/>), a Persistent Unique Identifier to be assigned
to each Language Resource. The assignment of ISLRNs to LRs cited in LREC
papers will be offered at submission time.
