Call for workshops

Call for workshop proposals

The Northern European Association for Language Technology (NEALT) invites proposals for workshop at its bi-annual conference on human language and speech technologies. NoDaLiDa 2017 will be held between May 22 and May 24, 2017 at Conference Centre Wallenberg,
centrally located in Gothenburg. Please mark your calendars.

NoDaLiDa addresses all aspects of natural language processing and computational linguistics — including work on applications, linguistic resources and in closely related neighbouring disciplines (such aslinguistics or psychology) that is sufficiently formalized or applied
to bear relevance to speech and language technologies.

We invite proposals for workshops, to be held on Monday, May 22, immediately preceding the main conference. Workshops can be either scheduled for a full day (morning and afternoon) or for half a day. Workshop proposals can be submitted in free-text form, anytime  before Tuesday, November 8, by email to ‘’.

  • proposed workshop title
