Conference URL: https://arabicnlp2024.sigarab.org/

Submission URL: TBA


ArabicNLP 2024 builds on eight previous conference and workshop editions, which have been extremely successful drawing in a large active participation in various capacities (See Scholar Page). This conference is timely given the continued rise in research projects focusing on Arabic NLP.  The conference is organized by the Special Interest Group on Arabic NLP (SIGARAB), an Association for Computational Linguistics Special Interest Group on Arabic NLP. This announcement combines two calls: (1) a call for shared task proposals, and (2) a call for conference papers. 


Call for Shared Task Proposals


We are also inviting proposals for shared tasks related to Arabic NLP. 

The proposals should provide an overview of the proposed task, motivation, data/resource collection and creation, task description, pilot run details (if available), a tentative timeline that matches the submission dates below, and task organizers (name, email, affiliation). 

Please Submit Proposals (up to 4 pages) at https://shorturl.at/eCJOS

For any questions, please contact the Shared Task Chair: arabicnlp-shared-task-chair@sigarab.org


Important Dates for Shared Task Proposals


All deadlines are 11:59 pm UTC -12h (“Anywhere on Earth”).


Call for Papers 

We accept long (up to 8 pages), short (up to 4 pages), and demo paper  (up to 4 pages) submissions. Long and short papers will be presented orally or as posters as determined by the program committee; presentation mode does not reflect the quality of the work.

Submissions are invited on topics that include, but are not limited to, the following:



Submissions may include work in progress as well as finished work. Submissions must have a clear focus on specific issues pertaining to the Arabic language whether it is standard Arabic, dialectal, classical, or mixed. Papers on other languages sharing problems faced by Arabic NLP researchers, such as Semitic languages or languages using Arabic script, are welcome provided that they propose techniques or approaches that would be of interest to Arabic NLP, and they explain why this is the case.  Additionally, papers on efforts using Arabic resources but targeting other languages are also welcome. Descriptions of commercial systems are welcome, but authors should be willing to discuss the details of their work. We also welcome position papers and surveys about any of the above topics.


Important Dates for Conference Papers


All deadlines are 11:59 pm UTC -12h (“Anywhere on Earth”).
