3rd Workshop on the Use of Computational Methods in the Study of 
Endangered Languages
Website: https://computel-workshop.org/computel-3/

* Submission Deadline POSTPONED to MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2018
* Submission website is open: 


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 26-27 February, 2019, 
immediately preceding the 6th International Conference on Language 
Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC6) hosted by the University of Hawai'i.


Papers are invited which explore the interface and intersection of 
computational linguistics, documentary linguistics, and community-based 
language revitalization efforts. We encourage 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.


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 track will not influence the likelihood of acceptance. 
Camera-ready versions in the Proceedings will have the same length 
ranges for both submission tracks, according to the original Submission 
Format (see below).


Submissions must be uploaded via EasyChair/ComputEL-3 
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=computel3) no later than 
October 22, 2018, 11:59PM (UTC-11, time zone of American Samoa). Please 
indicate clearly which of the two tracks and 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.

Submission formats

Either of the two submission formats (A or B) can be used for 
submissions to both (a) the linguistic community and (b) the academic 
tracks (see above). The selection of submission format will not 
influence the likelihood of acceptance.

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 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. 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.
