  • Next message: Bouma G.: "[Corpora-List] HPSG-04 Second Call for Papers"

    2004 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing
         (EMNLP 2004)
         Preliminary Call for Papers

    SIGDAT, the Association for Computational Linguistics' special
    interest group on linguistic data and corpus-based approaches to NLP,
    invites submissions to EMNLP 2004. The conference will be held on July
    25-26 in Barcelona, Spain, immediately following the 42nd meeting of
    the ACL (ACL 2004).

    We are interested in papers from academia, government, and industry on
    all areas of traditional interest to the SIGDAT community and aligned
    fields, including but not limited to:

     o information extraction
     o information retrieval
     o language and dialogue modeling
     o lexical acquisition
     o machine translation
     o multilingual technologies
     o question answering
     o statistical parsing
     o summarization
     o generation
     o tagging
     o term and named entity extraction
     o word sense disambiguation
     o word, term, and text segmentation
     o general NLP-related machine learning techniques:
       theory, methods and algorithms

    Requirements: Submissions must describe original, completed,
    unpublished work, and include concrete evaluation results when
    appropriate. Papers being submitted to other meetings must provide
    this information (see submission format). In the event of multiple
    acceptances, authors are requested to immediately notify the EMNLP
    program chair (lindek@cs.ualberta.ca) and to choose which meeting to
    present and publish the work at as soon as possible. EMNLP cannot
    accept for publication or presentation work that will be (or has been)
    published elsewhere.

    Format: Submissions should take the form of full papers (up to 8 pages
    in two-column format). Authors are strongly encouraged to use the
    style files originally provided for ACL 2004.

    We strongly prefer submissions to be as PS files. Any author who
    submits in PDF must assume the responsibility for ensuring that fonts
    are treated properly so that the paper will print (not just view)
    anywhere. (This may involve reading the manual.) DOC/RTF formats
    cannot be accepted.

    Reviewing will be blind. No information identifying the authors should
    be in the paper: this includes not only the authors' names and
    affiliations, but also self-references that reveal authors'
    identities; for example, "We have previously shown (Smith 1999)"
    should be changed to "Smith (1999) has previously shown". A separate
    identification email is required: see below.

    Procedure: Submissions will be entered via a website:
    A PostScript file of the paper must be uploaded onto the system by the
    date of the deadline (12 midnight GMT). In addition, information
    about each paper must be entered on the website. This information

         * Paper title
         * Contact author name, affiliation, and email address
         * A short list of keywords (selected from a predefined list)
         * Abstract (no more than 300 words)
         * The conferences that the paper has also been submitted to (if any).

    Important Dates
    Submission deadline: April 28, 2004
    Acceptance notification: May 26, 2004
    Camera-ready copy due: June 15, 2004
    Conference: July 25-26, 2004

    Program Co-Chairs
    Dekang Lin, University of Alberta, (lindek@cs.ualberta.ca)
