Computational SLA

CompSLA (Computational Second Language Acquisition) is a cooperation whose primary aim is to encourage the development of datasets and tools related to L2 (second language) learning for lower-resourced languages. It is articulated in two working groups, a local one and an international one.

The initiative was taken during the 2021 NLP4CALL workshop (see slides). At that time, the international working group was formed with the aim of organizing a series of shared tasks. This resulted in the MultiGED 2023 and the upcoming MultiGEC 2025 tasks.
