Meeting Description:

The ComputEL-6 workshop focuses 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 methods for endangered languages, field linguists documenting these languages, and the language communities who are striving to maintain their languages.

Call for Papers:

The ComputEL-6 workshop focuses 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 methods for endangered languages, field linguists documenting these languages, and the language communities who are striving to maintain their languages.

Workshop format/venue and the COVID-19 pandemic:
ComputEL-6 will be held virtually on March 5 and March 6, 2023 following the 8th International Conference of Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC8).

Papers are invited which explore the interface and intersection of computational linguistics, documentary linguistics, and community-based language revitalization and conservation 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.
(iv) discuss the evolution and working of community-linguist partnerships in The development of languages technology for languages revitalization efforts.

The intention of the workshop is not merely to allow for the presentation of research, but also to continue building a network of computational linguists, documentary linguists, and community language activists who are able to effectively join together and serve their common interests.

Presentations:
Accepted submissions will be allowed 20 minute presentations. Presentations will be pre-recorded, and given a live 5-minute summary presentation during the conference. This summary will be followed by a live question and answer period.

Submissions:
In line with our goal of reaching different academic communities, we offer two different modes of submission: extended abstract and full paper. Either can be submitted to our two tracks: (a) language community perspective and (b) academic perspective. The mode of submission does not influence the likelihood of acceptance.
Submissions must be uploaded no later than NOVEMBER 14, 2022, 11:59PM (UTC-12). Please indicate in the submission which of the two modes you are submitting to.
All submissions must be anonymous following ACL guidelines and will be peer-reviewed by the scientific committee. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by Jan. 20, 2023.
A. Extended abstract:
Please submit anonymous abstracts of up to 1500 words, excluding references.
B. Full paper:
Please submit anonymously either a) a long paper (max. 8 pages excluding references) or b) a short paper (max. 4 pages excluding references).

Proceedings:
The authors of selected accepted full papers (long or short) will be invited by the Organizing Committee to submit their papers for online publication via the open-access ACL Anthology. Final versions of long and short papers will be allotted one additional page. Extended abstracts will not be considered for publication. Revisions may not include entirely new, unreviewed content. Proceedings papers should be revised and improved versions of the work that was submitted for, and which underwent, review. Camera-ready versions of the articles for publication will be due on February 10, 2023.

Important Dates:
14 - November-2022 Deadline for submission of papers or short abstracts
20 - January-2023 Notification of acceptance
10 - February-2023 Camera-ready papers due
1 - March-2023 Presentation uploads due
