Welcome to the 2014 Joint Meeting of SIGMORPHON and SIGFSM which will take place at ACL 2014 in Baltimore, MD, on June 27, 2014
The purpose of the joint workshop is to bring together researchers interested in applying computational techniques to problems in morphology, phonology, and phonetics (the SIGMORPHON community) and researchers interested in applying finite-state methods to problems in natural language processing (the SIGFSM community). While the interests and methods of these different communities overlap considerably, there has been little institutional recognition of shared problems and techniques. This 1-day workshop, endorsed by both SIGMORPHON and SIGFSM, is a strong step towards establishing a meeting point where these communities learn from each other's experience, exchange ideas, and follow the advances in research groups working on different but related fields.
This workshop will be the thirteenth meeting of SIGMORPHON (formerly called SIGPHON) and an off-year event for SIGFSM. It will be a full-day workshop consisting of invited presentations, contributed presentations, and a special panel session on open problems. Research papers will be on substantial, original, and unpublished research, potentially including strong work in progress. Panel papers will identify open problems of significant interest. Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to) the following as they relate to the areas of SIGMORPHON and SIGFSM:
