Call for Papers

The First Arabic Natural Language Processing Conference (ArabicNLP 2023, formerly WANLP 2023) Co-located with EMNLP 2023 in Singapore. 

ArabicNLP 2023 invites the submission of original long, short or demo papers in the area of Arabic Natural Language Processing. ArabicNLP 2023 builds on seven previous workshop editions, which have been extremely successful, drawing in a large active participation in various capacities. This conference is timely given the continued rise in research projects focusing on Arabic NLP. ArabicNLP 2023 will also feature shared tasks, allowing participants to work on specific NLP challenges related to Arabic language processing.  The conference is organized by the Special Interest Group on Arabic NLP (SIGARAB), an Association for Computational Linguistics Special Interest Group on Arabic Natural Language Processing.

Important Dates

Submissions may include work in progress as well as finished work. Submissions must have a clear focus on specific issues pertaining to the Arabic language whether it is standard Arabic, dialectal, classical, or mixed. Papers on other languages sharing problems faced by Arabic NLP researchers, such as Semitic languages or languages using Arabic script, are welcome provided that they propose techniques or approaches that would be of interest to Arabic NLP, and they explain why this is the case.  Additionally, papers on efforts using Arabic resources but targeting other languages are also welcome. Descriptions of commercial systems are welcome, but authors should be willing to discuss the details of their work.
