Meeting Description:

The Third International Workshop on Resources and Tools for Derivational Morphology (DeriMo 2021) will be held on September 10 and 11, 2021, and is organized by the ATILF lab (UMR 7118 ''Analyse et Traitement de la Langue Française'', CNRS & Université de Lorraine) of the University of Lorraine. The 2021 edition of the workshop will continue the discussion on language resources and tools for derivational morphology (and, more generally, on word formation) started in DeriMo 2017 (Milan, Italy) and continued in DeriMo 2019 (Prague,Czech Republic).

DeriMo 2021 aims to cover a wide range of topics. Submissions are invited for presentations featuring high quality, previously unpublished research, both completed and ongoing, with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives, whether descriptive, theoretical, formal or computational. In particular, the topics to be addressed in the workshop include (but are not limited to) the following:
- language resources for word-formation either of individual languages, or with a multi-lingual focus,
- representation of word-formation processes in the resources (models based on base-derivative pairs, paradigmatic models, or other representations),
- enhancement of word-formation resources with other features (e.g. semantic categories in affixation, classification of compounds),
- linking word-formation resources with other types of annotation (e.g. syntactic, semantic),
- application of (semi-)automatic methods in modelling word formation,
- tools for creating, searching etc. of word-formation resources,
- data-based linguistic research in any aspect of word-formation (of individual languages, with contrastive or comparative focus, diachronic perspectives etc.),
- theoretical accounts of word-formation issues.
Proceedings will be published, open-access, in time for the workshop.

Invited Speakers:
We are honored to announce that Prof. Sebastian Padó (University of Stuttgart, Germany) and Prof. Richard Huyghe (Université de Fribourg, Switzerland) have accepted our invitation to give plenary talks at the DeriMo 2021 workshop in Nancy.

Second Call for Papers:

Important Announcements:
1) The deadline has been extended to May 3, 2021.
2) Due to the uncertain national health situation, we do not know how travel to and from France will be able to proceed, nor do we know how the restrictions on meetings will change in early September. For these reasons, DeiMo 2021 will be held entirely online.
3) Thanks to our colleagues from UFAL, an extended version of a selection of the talks presented at the workshop will be published in the Prague Bulletin of Mathematical Linguistics (PBML).

Important Dates:
- Extended deadline for paper submission: 3 May 2021
- Notification of acceptance: 29 May 2021
- Registration open: 15 June 2021
- Final papers due (camera-ready): 10 July 2021
