SIGUL 2024

3rd Annual Meeting
of the Special Interest Group
on Under-resourced Languages

a Satellite Workshop of LREC-COLING 2024

Torino (IT), 20-21 May 2024

NEW => the Proceedings of the SIGUL 2024 Workshop are now available!

The 3rd Annual Meeting of the ELRA/ISCA Special Interest Group on Under-resourced Languages (SIGUL 2024) provided a forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in language processing for under-resourced languages by academic and industry researchers.

SIGUL 2024 carried on the tradition of the SLTU (Spoken Language Technologies for Under-resourced languages), CCURL (Collaboration and Computing for Under-Resourced Languages), SLTU-CCURL and SIGUL Workshop Series, which have been organized since 2008 and, as LREC Workshops, since 2014.

After being organized as an Interspeech Workshop in 2023, the SIGUL Workshop Series returned under the umbrella of LREC, which was held jointly with COLING at the Lingotto Conference Centre in Torino as well as in a virtual format from 20 to 25 May 2024.

As usual, this Workshop spanned the research interest areas of less-resourced, under-resourced, endangered, minority and minoritized languages.

A Special Session on languages of Italy and language technologies was addressed to researchers interested in developing language resources and technologies for the many languages of Italy (regional, minority or heritage languages, including those of the neighboring countries), which reflects the long and varied history of this country.
