Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Morphology; Phonetics; Phonology

Call Deadline: 28-Mar-2014

Meeting Description:

The purpose of the joint workshop is to bring together researchers interested in applying computational techniques to problems in morphology, phonology, and phonetics and researchers interested in applying finite-state methods to problems in natural language processing.

One of the missions of SIGMORPHON is to encourage interaction between work in computational linguistics and work in theoretical phonetics, phonology and morphology, and to ensure that each of these fields profits from the interaction. Recent SIGMORPHON meetings have been successful in this regard, and we hope to see this continue in 2014. Similarly, SIGFSM aims to bolster interaction and exchange between computational linguistics, theoretical linguistics, and theoretical computer science.

This 1-day workshop, endorsed by both SIGMORPHON and SIGFSM, is a strong step towards establishing a meeting point where these communities learn from each other's experience, exchange ideas, and follow the advances in research groups working on different but related fields.

This workshop will be the thirteenth meeting of SIGMORPHON (formerly called SIGPHON) and an off-year event for SIGFSM. It will be a full-day workshop consisting of invited presentations, contributed presentations, and a special panel session on open problems.

The workshop will be held on June 27, 2014 immediately after the ACL 2014 meeting at Marriott Waterfront, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

Keynote Speaker:

Jason Eisner (Johns Hopkins University) agreed to give the keynote speech.

Final Call for Papers:

2014 Joint Meeting of SIGMORPHON and SIGFSM

ACL 2014
Baltimore, Maryland, USA
June 27, 2014

Deadline Extension:

The submission deadline is extended to March 28, 2014, 23:59 EDT.


Research papers will be on substantial, original, and unpublished research, potentially including strong work in progress. Panel papers will identify open problems of significant interest. Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to) the following as they relate to the areas of SIGMORPHON and SIGFSM:

- Unsupervised, semi-supervised, or machine learning of linguistic knowledge and finite-state models
- New formalisms, computational treatments, or probabilistic models of linguistic generalizations
- Finite-state models of language
- Practices for building and evaluating morphological models for the world's languages using finite-state technology
- Models or analysis of psycholinguistic, experimental results
- Morpheme identification and word segmentation
- Machine transliteration, back-transliteration, G2P, P2G
- Speech science or technologies relating to phonetics or phonology
- Analysis or exploitation of multilingual, multi-dialectal, or diachronic data
- Integration of morphology, phonology, phonetics, or finite-state methods with other NLP tasks
- Tools, resources and finite-state manipulation software
