   Call for papers

   The purpose of the conference series International Workshop on
   Computational Linguistics for Uralic Languages is to bring together
   researchers working on computational approaches to working with these
   languages. We accept long and short papers as well as tutorial
   proposals working on the following languages: Finnish, Hungarian,
   Estonian, Võro, the Sámi languages, Komi (Zyrian, Permyak), Mordvin
   (Erzya, Moksha), Mari (Hill, Meadow), Udmurt, Nenets (Tundra, Forest),
   Enets, Nganasan, Selkup, Mansi, Khanty, Veps, Karelian (Olonets),
   Karelian, Ingrian (Izhorian), Votic, Livonian, Ludic, 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   Research papers should be original, substantial and unpublished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.

   In this year’s edition, we encourage people to present comparative
   evaluations of different NLP methods as applied to Uralic languages.
   With all the buzz around neural and deep-learning methods: Are they
   applicable to Uralic languages, which in general have very little
   training data --- even monolingual data --- and also richer morphology
   than the more widely treated Indo-European languages.

Submission of papers

   Language of submission: Submissions should be made in English or
   Russian with an obligatory abstract in at least one of the Uralic
   Language(s).

   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.

   Publication venue: Proceedings of the workshop will be published
   open-access in ACL anthology, SIG proceedings for SIGUR.

   Conflicts of interest: The reviewing process will be anonymous
   (double-blind peer review).

   Submission Guidelines: Submit via easychair. The LaTeX templates are
   here:
   [6]https://github.com/acl-sigur/iwclul-latex/releases/tag/iwclul-2019.
   You may also submit a PDF generated from a Word Document or other LaTeX
   template, but if the paper is accepted you will need to format the
   camera-ready version according to the guidelines. There are no hard
   limits for page counts but for the benefit of reviewers please make it
   approximately 5-20 pages depending on the page layout.
