Call For Papers

The rise in ML community efforts on the African continent has led to a growing interest in Natural Language Processing, particularly for African languages which are typically low resource languages. This interest is manifesting in the form of national, regional, continental and even global collaborative efforts to build corpora, as well as the application of the aggregated corpora to various NLP tasks.

This workshop therefore has several aims;

We encourage paper submissions on (but not limited to) the following topics:

NLP Experiments for African Langauges

Datasets for NLP for African Languages

Geographic Diversity in NLP

Techniques applicable to African Languages

Challenges for NLP in African Languages



We will accept problem statements and extended abstracts (up to 2 pages + references)

Each 2-page submission will be eligible for oral or poster presentation and may opt-in to be published in an arXiv proceedings.

Submission Format

Contributions should be blinded and submitted using the ICLR template via Easy Chair.
