Welcome !

Welcome to the 8th Workshop on Balto-Slavic Natural Language Processing that is going to be held in conjunction with the
16th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics.

BSNLP 2021

BSNLP is a Workshop that addresses Natural Language Processing (NLP) for the Balto-Slavic languages.

The goal of this Workshop is to bring together researchers from academia and industry working on NLP for Balto-Slavic languages. In particular, the Workshop will serve to stimulate research and foster the creation of tools and resources for these languages.

We also organize the 3rd edition of the shared task on Multilingual Named Entity Recognition.
