4th Workshop on Computational Methods for Endangered Languages
Honolulu, Hawai’i, March, 2021

QUICK LINKS:

The ComputEL-4 workshop will focus 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 working on methods for endangered languages, field linguists working on 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-4 aims to alternate between co-location with computational linguistics conferences and with language documentation conferences. ComputEL-4 is planned to take place immediately before the 7th International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC7) hosted by the University of Hawaii, March 2021.

Workshop format/venue and the COVID-19 pandemic

Our current intention is for ComputEL-4 to take place on March 2-3, 2019, immediately preceding the 7th International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC7) hosted by the University of Hawaii.

However, due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are also considering various options for holding ComputEL-4 as a fully virtual or virtual/in-person hybrid workshop. We plan to make a decision about the workshop format by June 1, 2020.
