The 12th Meeting of ACL Special Interest Group in Computational Morphology and Phonology (SIGMORPHON) will take place in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on June 7th, 2012.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in applying computational techniques to problems in morphology, phonology, and phonetics. Work that addresses orthographic issues are also welcome. Papers will be on substantial, original, and unpublished research on these topics, potentially including strong work in progress. Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to) the following as they relate to the areas of the workshop:

  • New formalisms, computational treatments, or probabilistic models of existing linguistic formalisms
  • Unsupervised, semi-supervised or machine learning of linguistic knowledge
  • Models of psycholinguistic experiments
  • Morpheme identification and word segmentation
  • Algorithms, including finite-state methods
  • Corpus linguistics
  • Machine transliteration and back-transliteration
  • Speech technologies relating to phonetics or phonology
  • Speech science (both production and comprehension)
  • Analysis or exploitation of multilingual, multi-dialectal, or diachronic data
  • Instructional technologies for second-language learners
  • Integration of morphology, phonology, or phonetics with other NLP tasks
  • Tools and resources
  • Approaches to orthographic variation
Please see the call for papers.
