CAMeL Lab Guidelines camel-lab

In the Computational Approaches to Modeling Language (CAMeL) Lab we work on the development of a wide range of Arabic and Arabic dialect resources (tools, corpora and lexicons).

The guidelines are versioned and backed up on GitHub. We invite you to check them out, and give your feedback. Each guideline section includes a discussion of high level philosophy as well as specific details, and links to publications on the guidelines and publications and projects using the guidelines.
