> Aihe: Call: Second International Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Uralic Languages
> Päivämäärä: 11. elokuuta 2015 15.45.07 UTC+2
> Vastaanottaja: nyelvesz at nytud.hu
> Call for papers
> The purpose of the Second International Workshop on Computational
> Linguistics for Uralic Languages is to bring together researchers
> working on computational approaches to working with these languages. We
> accept papers and tutorial proposals working on 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.
> Research papers should be original, substantial and unpublished
> research, that can describe work-in-progress systems, frameworks,
> standards and evaluation schemes. Demos and tutorials will present
> systems and standards towards the goal of interoperability and
> unification of different projects, applications and research groups.
> 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.
> The invited talk will be given by András Kornai.
> Important Dates
> 1st July 2015: Call-for papers announced
> 2nd November 2015: Paper submission deadline
> 2nd December 2015: Paper notification
> 20th December 2015: Camera-ready deadline
> 20th January 2016: Workshop held in Szeged, Hungary
> Submission of papers
> Language of submission: Submissions should be made in English or Russian
> with an optional abstract in Finnish.
> Submission format: There are multiple submission types: research papers
> and demonstrations and tutorials. Research papers should be up to 10
> pages in length excluding references, the descriptions for
> demonstrations and tutorials up to 5 pages. Submissions should be
> formatted using LaTeX default article style with b5paper option.
> Citations should be managed with bibtex and e.g., unsrt bibliography
> style. Linguistic glosses should follow Leipzig glossing rules and use
> expex LaTeX package (make sure to update expex regularly as it is
> developed actively). Preferred LaTeX version is XeLaTeX and therefore
> you should use UTF-8 encoded Unicode in your sources rather than TeX
> encoded characters where possible. You will find the workshop template
> here. Submissions can be made here using the EasyChair conference
> management system.
> Publication venue: Proceedings of the workshop will be published
> open-access in the repository of the University of Szeged. Authors of
> outstanding papers will be invited by the editorial board of the Acta
> Linguistica Hungarica to submit their work to be published, subject to
> further extension and review, in a special issue of the journal.
> Conflicts of interest: The reviewing process will not be anonymous,
> authors should state in their submission all conflicts of interest with
> programme committee. The members of programme committee are expected to
> state their conflicts of interest during review bidding. If the
> programme committee finds themselves unable to review some of the
> submissions, external reviewers may be used.
> Double submission: To maximise the impact of work in the field of
> computational linguistics for the Uralic languages we are open to the
> possibility of double submission, or submission of work which has been
> partially published elsewhere. Any double submission should however be
> reported to the programme committee at the time of submission. In the
> advent of double acceptance the authors should choose in which venue to
> publish.
> Venue
> The workshop will be held at the Study and Information Centre of the
> University of Szeged, Hungary (http://www.u-szeged.hu/tik).
> The Centre gives place to national and international conferences,
> university and business meetings, cultural and charity programmes, such as
> exhibitions or concerts as well as to receptions and banquets. The
> capacity of the Centre can take up to 1,300 persons at the same time, as
> it has a Congress Hall enough for 685 persons, 3 Lecture Halls, 3
> Seminar Rooms, a Video Conference Room, and an Exhibition Area. Main
> technical apparatus available for each room include:
> Built-in projector
> Laptop
> Sound amplifier
> Mobile screen (180x240 cm)
> Overhead projector
> Mobile whiteboard (90x180 cm)
> The whole building is air-conditioned and suitable for disabled people.
> Travel
> Participants from outside the European Union may require a visa to visit
> Hungary. If you require an invitation letter confirming your
> participation, please get in contact with the organising committee.
> There are regular flight connections from all major cities of the world
> to Budapest, Ferihegy Airport. A large number of cheap flights are also
> available from several European cities to Budapest.
> There is a convenient InterCity train connection between Budapest and
> Szeged. The train station can easily be reached from the airport by bus
> no. 200. Buses to the Ferihegy train station run approx. every 15
> minutes and the ride takes about 10 minutes. InterCity trains run every
> hour from 6am till 9pm.
> Accommodation
> Hotels may be found through your preferred online hotel price comparison
> site. If you have any questions about accommodation, please feel free to
> contact the organisers.
