Third Workshop on NLP for Indigenous Languages of the AmericasAmericasNLP 2023 will be co-located with ACL 2023 in Toronto, Canada! The schedule is here.
Call for PapersThe goal of AmericasNLP is to encourage and increase the visibility of work on the Indigenous languages of the Americas. It aims to encourage research on NLP, computational linguistics, corpus linguistics and speech for Indigenous languages, to connect researchers and professionals from underrepresented communities and native speakers of endangered languages with the ACL community, and, more generally, to promote machine learning approaches suitable for low-resource languages. We invite the submission of:
- Long papers (8 pages) and short papers (4 pages) on substantial, original, and unpublished research
- Non-archival extended abstracts (2 pages), technical reports (8 pages), and work which has been presented at other venues (in the format of the original publication).
- Creation of datasets for NLP applications
- Incorporation of external knowledge into neural systems
- Linguistic typology and the use of typological features for NLP
- Transfer learning, meta-learning, and active learning
- Weakly supervised, semi-supervised, and unsupervised learning
- Machine translation of low-resource languages
- Morphology and phonology of low-resource languages
- NLP applications for Indigenous languages of the Americas
Update (04/14/2023): Limitation section and ethics statement are not mandatory, but strongly encouraged. If they are part of your submission, they do not count towards the page limit.
Shared TaskTo motivate the NLP community to increase research efforts on Indigenous and endangered languages, AmericasNLP 2023 features a shared task on MT of truly low-resource languages. The results of the shared task will be presented during the in-person workshop in Toronto. More information can be found here.
