Meeting Description: The deadline for submission to ComptEL-2 has been extended to October 16 2016.

The ComputEL-2 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 aims to alternate between co-location with computational linguistics conferences and with language documentation conferences. ComputEL-2 will immediately follow the International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC) hosted by the University of Hawaii, March 2-5, 2017.

The first ComputEL workshop was co-located with the main conference of the Association for Computational Linguistics in Baltimore in 2014. ( . The proceedings of ComputEL-1 were published online by ACL and are available at:
