Dear Colleagues,

This is just a reminder about the special issue on Tibetan NLP and other
Himalayan Languages for *Asian and Low-Resource Language Information
Processing* (TALLIP). The deadline is 1 November. In some cases I
understand people will need more time, and if this is the case, please just
write me directly (as some have already done).

very best,
