Meeting Description:

The Celtic Language Technology Workshop (CLTW) series of workshops provides a forum for researchers interested in developing NLP (Natural Language Processing) resources and technologies for Celtic languages. As Celtic languages are under-resourced, our goal is to encourage collaboration and communication between researchers working on language technologies and resources for Celtic languages.

Call for Papers:

Language Technology and Computational Linguistics research innovations in recent years have given us a great deal of modern language processing tools and resources for many languages. Basic language tools like spell and grammar checkers through to interactive systems like Siri, as well as resources like the Trillion Word Corpus, all fit together to produce products and services which enhance our daily lives.

Until relatively recently, languages with smaller numbers of speakers have largely not benefited from attention in this field. However, modern techniques in the field are making it easier to create language tools and resources from fewer resources in a faster time. In this light, many lesser spoken languages are making their way into the digital age through the provision of language technologies and resources.

This will be the third Celtic Language Technology Workshop (CLTW), this time co-located with MT Summit XVII in Dublin, Ireland.

Our workshop welcomes theoretical and practical submissions on any Celtic language (Irish, Welsh, Scottish Gaelic, Manx, Cornish or Breton) that contributes to research in machine translation, automated language processing, language/speech technologies or resources for the same. With Ireland's recent progress in the area of machine translation (particularly in public administration) and steps towards combining speech processing and machine translation for Welsh, there is much scope for sharing best practices and leveraging from learned experiences through working with limited resources in this forum. We will particularly encourage studies that address either practical applications with a human in the loop or the lack of resources available for a given language in this field.

Topics of interest for the CLTW include but are not limited to:

machine translation
corpus development and analysis
speech technology
evaluation methods
language resources
morphological analysis
knowledge representation
computer-assisted language learning (CALL)
Digital Humanities
