Subject: Computational Linguistics - Coling-2002

19th International Conference on Computational Linguistics
August 24 -- September 1, 2002
Howard International House, Taipei, Taiwan
Organized by: Academia Sinica, ACLCLP and National Tsing Hua University
Under the Auspices of: The International Committee on Computational

Call for Papers
(No.1. May-30-01)

COLING is the most prominent conference in the field of Computational
Linguistics. In its 40 plus years of existence, the biennial COLING
has been a productive forum for scholars all over the world to
exchange original research papers on a broad range of topics in
computational linguistics. COLING is an international forum for
discussion and presentation representing the current state of the art
and determining standards of computational linguistics research. 

In 2002, Taiwan will host the 19th COLING conference. This will be the
first time that COLING is held outside Europe, North America, or
Japan. It will be a chance for participants to experience the energy
behind Taiwan's vibrant growth in knowledge technology, as well as the
natural beauty of Formosa and its rich cultural heritage.

Submitted papers should describe original work, completed or in
progress, rather than merely planned, and clearly indicate the current
state of advancement of the work. No previously published papers
should be submitted. Simultaneous submission to other conferences is
allowed provided it is explicitly indicated on the identification page.

In line with the practice established in previous COLING conferences,
authors will be asked to place their submission in one of two

1.Regular papers, of not more than seven pages, presenting results of
original complete research, and 

2.Project notes, of five pages or less, describing ongoing research or
demonstrating a system.

Method of Submission:
- Complete a Paper Submission Form

 This form may be updated up to the deadline for paper submissions
(February 15, 2002). 

- For your paper use the layout and format of papers described in
 the LATEX or Microsoft Word Style sheets, as well as ACL Bibliography
 Style sheets. (For more details on paper submission see _.

- Electronic submissions of papers are strongly preferred. Papers should be 

 sent to
- Hard copy papers are also accepted. 

Further details will be available later.
