Meeting Description:

The Second Workshop on NLP Solutions for Under Resourced Languages (NSURL 2021)
Trento, 12-13 November 2021

The workshop aims to draw the attention of researchers in the under resourced languages communities and encourage them to cooperate and intensify efforts to provide solutions and resources for such under resourced languages. To achieve this goal, the workshop offers the possibility for researchers to organize competitions for solving NLP tasks. These tasks are usually provided with training and test data by the task organizers to allow participating solutions to be evaluated and compared with other solutions. The number of shared tasks for this year are 3 tasks for 3 languages ( Task description papers and the participating solutions including the performance evaluations will be published in the workshop proceedings.
