CRiLL-HL aims at researchers working with Low Resource Languages - a special focus is on historical languages.

In recent years, the interest in language resources and computational models for the study of low resource languages (LRLs) has been constantly growing. This concerns especially historical LRLs for which authentic digitized material is hardly available. Since for most historical languages data is sparse one may consider Wikipedia and related projects (on Old English, Gothic, Old Church Slavonic, Latin etc.) to overcome data sparseness. This approach investigates to what extent such data can be useful for modeling historical languages. The LRL workshop addresses scholars working on these and related topics using LRL corpora for NLP of low-resourced languages.
