NEWS/UPDATES (Sept. 12, 2022)

  • The second call for papers is up and submissions are now open. Check out the pages under the ComputEL-6 menu.
  • ComputEL-6 will take place virtually on March 5 and 6 2023, co-located with ICLDC.
  • The submission deadline for ComputEL-6 is November 14, 2022!

The ComputEL-6 workshop focuses on the use of computational methods in the study, support, and revitalization of endangered languages. The primary aim of the workshop is to continue narrowing the gap between computational linguists interested in methods for endangered languages, field linguists documenting these languages, and the language communities who are striving to maintain their languages.

We take seriously the goal of reaching all relevant communities. To support this goal, ComputEL aims to alternate co-location with computational linguistics conferences and language documentation conferences. ComputEL-6 will be co-located with the 8th International Conference on Language Documentation and Revitalization.


The first ComputEL workshop was co-located with the main conference of the Association for Computational Linguistics in Baltimore in 2014. The proceedings of ComputEL-1 were published online by ACL and are available at: https://www.aclweb.org/anthology/W14-2200.pdf

The second ComputEL workshop, ComputEL-2, was co-located with the 5th International Conference of Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC5) in Honolulu, Hawai’i, in March 2017. The proceedings of ComputEL-2 were published online by ACL and are available at: http://aclweb.org/anthology/W17-01

The third ComputEL workshop, ComputEL-3, was co-located with the 6th International Conference of Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC6) in Honolulu, Hawai’i, in March 2019. The proceedings of ComputEL-3 were published online by ACL (https://www.aclweb.org/anthology/W19-6000.pdf) and the University of Colorado Boulder Scholar (https://scholar.colorado.edu/scil-cmel/).

The fourth ComputEL workshop, ComputEL-4, was co-located with the 7th International Conference of Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC6) in Honolulu, Hawai’i, in March 2021. The program of ComputEL-4 (and published papers) is available online: https://computel-workshop.org/computel-4/workshop-program/.

The fifth workshop, ComputEL-5, was co-located with the main conference of the Association for Computational Linguistics in Dublin in 2022. The proceedings of ComputEL4 were published online by ACL and are available at: https://aclanthology.org/2022.computel-1.0/
