Workshop on the Use of Computational Methods in the Study of Endangered
CALL FOR PAPERS
The ComputEL-3 workshop will focus on the use of computational methods
in the study, support, and revitalization of endangered languages. The
primary aim of the workshop is to continue narrowing the gap between
computational linguists interested in working on methods for endangered
languages, field linguists working on documenting these languages, and
the language communities who are striving to maintain their languages.
We take seriously the goal of reaching all relevant communities. To
support this goal, ComputEL-3 aims to alternate between co-location with
computational linguistics conferences and with language documentation
conferences. ComputEL-3 will take place on 26-27 February 2019,
immediately preceding the 6th International Conference on Language
Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC6).
Papers are invited which explore the interface and intersection of
computational linguistics, documentary linguistics, and community-based
language revitalization efforts. The committee encourages submissions which:
(i) examine the use of specific methods in the analysis of data from
low-resource languages, with a focus on endangered languages, or propose
new methods for analysis of such data,
(ii) propose new models for the collection, management, and deployment
of data in endangered language settings, or
(iii) consider what concrete steps are required to allow for a more
fruitful interaction between computer scientists, documentary linguists,
and language communities.
The intention of the workshop is not merely to allow for the
presentation of research on these topics, but also to continue building
a network of computational linguists, documentary linguists, and
community language activists who are able to effectively join together
to serve their common interests.
We will have both oral plaftorm presentation sessions and a Poster
session. The decision on whether a presentation will be a platform or
poster one will be taken by the Organizing Committee on the advice of
the Program Committee, taking into account the subject matter and how
that might be best conveyed. Platform and poster presentations will not
be distinguished in the Proceedings.
In line with our goal of reaching different academic communities, we
offer two different modes of submission under two different tracks: (a)
linguistic community perspective and (b) academic perspective. The
selected mode/track of submission does not influence likelihood of
acceptance. Camera-ready versions will have the same length ranges for
both submission tracks, according to the original Submission Format (see
Submission Formats and Proceedings below).
Submissions must be uploaded via TBD/ComputEL-3 no later than October
15, 2018, 11:59PM (UTC-11, time zone of American Samoa). Please indicate
clearly which of the two modes (Extended abstract or Full short/long
paper) you are submitting to.
All submissions must be anonymous and will be peer-reviewed by the
Scientific Committee. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by
November 12, 2018.
A. Extended abstract:
Please submit anonymous abstracts of up to 1500 words.
B. Full paper (short or long):
Please submit (anonymously) either long papers (max. 8 pages plus
references) or short papers (max. 4 pages plus references) according to
the style and formatting guidelines provided in the CompuEL-3 Style
Files (which have template files for both LaTeX and Microsoft Word).
Authors will be allowed one extra page for the final version.
Authors whose presentations are selected for the conference will be
eligible to submit their papers for online publication via the
open-access ACL Anthology. Full and short papers will be allotted 1
additional page (altogether 5 and 9 pages) excluding references.
Extended abstracts will be alloted 5 pages (according to the short paper
format), excluding references. Proceedings papers should be revised and
improved versions of the material content that was submitted for, and
which has undergone, review. Extensions should concern responses to
reviewer comments and the addition of further relevant details and
clarifications, but not entirely new, unreviewed content. In particular,
extended abstracts cannot be turned into full-length 9-page long papers.
Camera-ready versions of the articles will be due on January 21, 2019.
We anticipate being able to support travel costs in some cases for
students whose papers are accepted as well as scholars from lower income
countries. Please contact the organizers at computel.workshop at gmail.com
for further information.
