 Language Technology Joint Conference
 Applied Natural Language Processing
 and the
 North American Chapter of the
 Association for Computational Linguistics
 General Conference Chair: Marie Meteer, BBN Technologies

 CALL FOR PAPERS

The Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) is pleased to
announce that the 2000 Applied Natural Language Processing (ANLP)
conference and the first conference of the new North American Chapter
of the ACL (NAACL) will be held jointly 29 April to 3 May 2000 in
Seattle, Washington.

The joint conferences will offer a unique opportunity to bring
industry and researchers together to explore the full spectrum of
computational linguistics and natural language processing, from theory
and methodology to their application in commercial software.

For the general sessions, substantial, original, and unpublished
contributions to computational linguistics are solicited. (See the
separate Call for Student Papers to be announced soon for requirements
for submissions to the student sessions.) Submissions are due by 17
November 1999. See submission details at
http://www.gte.com/anlp-naacl2000

The ANLP program committee invites papers describing natural language
processing systems -- their development, integration, adaptation and
standardization; tools, techniques, and resources contributing to the
development of complete end-to-end applications of NLP; evaluation of
system performance and related issues. In particular, submissions
should be directed to one of the following subject areas:

 * Monolingual text processing systems
 * Multilingual text processing systems
 * Spoken language and multimodal systems
 * Integrated NLP systems
 * Tools and resources for developing NLP systems
 * Evaluation of performance of complete NLP systems

The NAACL program committee invites papers on methodology, approaches,
algorithms, models, analyses and experiments in computational
linguistics. Program subcommittees will be organized around eight main
areas:

 * Discourse, Dialogue, and Pragmatics
 * Semantics and the Lexicon
 * Syntax, Morphology, and Phonology
 * Generation and Summarization
 * Spoken Language
 * Corpus-Based and Statistical Natural Language Processing
 * Cognitive Modeling and Human-Computer Interaction
 * Multilingual Natural Language Processing

There is some inevitable overlap between the topic areas for NAACL and
ANLP. In deciding whether to submit their papers to NAACL or ANLP,
authors should consider whether their paper focuses more on the
methodology or the end application of that methodology to solve a
particular problem.

A paper accepted for presentation at either meeting must not be or
have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available
proceedings. A paper may not be submitted to both NAACL 2000 and ANLP
2000, but may be submitted to other conferences provided that, if
accepted, it is withdrawn from all but one. Submission to other
conferences should be indicated on the paper.

Papers will not be exchanged between the two program committees.
However, in the final program, papers may be grouped or juxtaposed in
related sessions to highlight similarities and downplay artificial
distinctions.

We also appreciate that it can be advantageous to view the same work
from both a theoretical/methodological perspective and an applied
perspective; we welcome paired submissions to NAACL and ANLP, though
each submission needs to make a significant contribution on its own.

Please acknowledge the related submissions and include their abstracts
with your submission, though decisions will be made independently and
acceptance of one does not guarantee acceptance of the other.

Original papers that do not easily fall within one of the suggested
areas are also invited. The submission should be directed to the chair
of the respective program committee, with the topic area slot in the
submission template empty.

IMPORTANT DATES:

Tutorial Proposal Submission Deadline October 28, 1999
Workshop Proposal Submission Deadline November 1, 1999 
Paper Submissions Deadline November 17, 1999

 CALL FOR PAPERS

 The 14th PACIFIC ASIA CONFERENCE
 ON 
 LANGUAGE, INFORMATION AND COMPUTATION


 February 15-17, 2000

The Logico-Linguistic Society of Japan is pleased to announce that the
first PACLIC conference in the second millenium, PACLIC 14, will be
held at Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, on February 15-17,
2000. The Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and
Computation is an annual meeting of scholars with a wide range of
interest in theoretical and computational linguistics.

PACLIC 14 solicits papers treating any field in theoretical and
computational linguistics, including, but not limited to, syntax,
morphology, phonology, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis,
typology, corpus linguistics, formal grammar theory, natural language
processing, and computer applications.

Submission may be made either for a long paper or a short paper. The
long paper should not exceed 20 letter- or A4-sized pages, with font
size 11 point, double spaced throughout. The maximum length for the
short paper is 2000 words. The first page of the submitted paper
should bear the following information: the title of the paper, the
name(s) of the author(s), affiliations, mailing address, and Email
address for correspondence. E-mail submission is also acceptable (but
no fax submissions). Accepted papers will be published in the
Conference Proceedings. The submission should be sent to either of the
following addresses.
