With the rapid development of "Multilingual NLP", Natural Language Processing Research organizes two special issues, each one focusing on different aspects of this topic.
Now it is pleased to announce the upcoming publication of the second special issue, on Multilingual Approaches to NLP. This special issue welcome papers on all aspects of multilingual approaches to NLP, especially those making use of linguistic typology, for instance by parameter sharing between languages which have typological commonalities, typologically inspired machine learning architectures, multilingual resource development, or multilingual transfer learning.
Guest Editors for this special issue are Johannes Bjerva (Aalborg University Copenhagen, Denmark), Miryam de Lhoneux (Uppsala University, Sweden), Taraka Rama (University of North Texas, USA), Ekaterina Vylomova (The University of Melbourne, Australia), and Robert Östling (Stockholm University, Sweden).

Call for Papers - Special Issue on "Multilingual Representations for NLP"

December 1st, 2020

With the rapid development of "Multilingual NLP", Natural Language Processing Research organizes two special issues, each one focusing on different aspects of this topic.
Now it is pleased to announce the upcoming publication of the first special issue on Multilingual Representations for NLP. This special issue invites articles on all aspects of multi- and cross-lingual text representations in NLP. Beyond standard zero-shot cross-lingual text classification transfer, particular focus is on challenging application scenarios of cross-lingual representations such as using them as a basis for evaluation metrics in machine translation without human references (reference-free evaluation metrics) and scenarios involving (very) low-resource languages and highly distant language pairs. Analyses of cross-lingual representations and novel benchmarks are, furthermore, of high interest. Original submissions as well as substantial extensions of submitted conference papers are welcome. Guest Editors for this special issue are Steffen Eger (Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany), Li Dong (Microsoft Research, China), Chi-kiu Lo (National Research Council, Canada), Gözde Gül Şahin (Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany), Johannes Bjerva (Aalborg University Copenhagen, Denmark), Pushpak Bhattacharyya (Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India). The paper submission deadline is 20 March 2021. Please find the full call for papers here.
