Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to announce this call for papers for articles on Natural
Language Processing for Tibetan and other Himalayan Languages for a special
issue of *Asian and Low-Resource Language Information Processing* (TALLIP).

Deadline: 1 November 2019,
Submit online at -- https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tallip

Tibetan is a language as old as English and wish a comparably rich literary
tradition; it is spoken by circa 6 million people both inside and outside
of China. Tibetan NLP began relatively recently, but great progress has
been made recently, which research teams working in China, the US, the UK,
and India. However, the research of these teams
is spread very thinly among venues in Tibetan studies, linguistics, NLP,
and computer science. The needs of these various audiences has often meant
that the published versions of research have not been able
to include all of the information that allows for replicability. As a venue
focused specifically on underresourced Asian languages TALLIP provides the
perfect place to showcase the progress being made in Tibetan NLP.  This
special issue will consolidate the progress made so far, and showcase the
most recently developments.

The special issue encourages submissions on all aspects of Tibetan NLP
(OCR, tokenization, word breaking, chunking, parsing, topic modeling,
information extraction, speech synthesis,etc.).
