Job opening

There is a Ph.D. position around the research topics I work on (e.g. computational sociolinguistics, multilingualism, language contact and variation, HCI, low-resource languages, language contact & variation, open-domain dialogue systems) in my group. Computational skills in language technologies (e.g. NLP, ML, HCI, speech technology)  will be necessary. Feel free to reach out to me if you are interested about the details. (In extraordinary cases, a post doc with a strong publication record could also be eligible for a shorter period of time.)

Information about publications & publication venues in Computational Linguistics for Linguists

Proceedings of conferences are main publication venues for computational areas of research. Different than humanities & social sciences, conference proceedings in computational disciplines are published as long or short paper formats after an extensive and competitive review process with quite low acceptance rates. The papers published in conferences are (often) publicly available.

A program committee (PC) hosts (invited & qualified) reviewers for the designated track.

Submitting academic papers to these conferences provide the accepted papers with high visibility and higher chances of citation across fields.

In addition to tracks in different areas of computational research, some conferences also have “industrial tracks” hosting more applied research.

Some of these computational conferences are listed below as follows:

EMNLP (Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing).

(EMNLP’19 acceptance rate is 25.6% for long and 20.5% for short papers)

ACL (Annual Conference of the Association for Computational Linguistics)

(ACL’19 acceptance rate is 25.7% for long and 18.2% for short papers)

COLING (International Conference on Computational Linguistics)

More stats about the conference acceptance rates are here.

Publications on Linguistics, Sociolinguistics, Multilingualism for Computational Linguists

Publications in Humanities and Social Sciences are often not noticed in computational areas of research. In this section, I will provide links for publications & journals that are potentially interesting for researchers in computational fields.

Bilingualism: Language & Cognition covers research topics from a pyscholinguistic & neuroscientific perspective. Latest issue of the journal (2020) is available here.

Journal of Multilingual & Multicultural Development focuses on sociology and social psychology of language ( aims & scope). Latest articles (Vol.41, 2020) are available here.
