Call for Papers

Abstracts are invited for the 8th International Pragmatics Conference,
Toronto, Canada, 13-18 July 2003 to contribute to the panel
'Temporality and Post-Gricean Pragmatics', organized by Dr Kasia
Jaszczolt, University of Cambridge, UK. For more details on the
conference and panel submissions see http://ipra-www.uia.ac.be/ipra/

Please send your abstract to Dr Kasia Jaszczolt on kmj21cam.ac.uk or
Department of Linguistics, University of Cambridge, Sidgwick Avenue,
Cambridge CB3 9DA, United Kingdom by 1 October 2002, stating your full
name, address and email address in the message.

The abstracts will be collected by the panel organizer and sent to the
conference organizers for anonymous refereeing. The panel organizer
will be happy to provide feedback and suggestions before the final
submission.

Alternatively, it is also possible to send the abstract directly to
the IPrA Secretariat by 1 November, specifying the panel for which the

EACL-03 Call for Papers, Research notes and Demos

11th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for
Computational Linguistics

Budapest, Hungary, April 12-17, 2003.

1. Papers

Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research
on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not
limited to:

 pragmatics, discourse, semantics, syntax and the lexicon; 
 phonetics, phonology and morphology; 
 interpreting and generating spoken and written language; 
 linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language; 
 language-oriented information retrieval, question answering, 
 summarization and information extraction; 
 language-oriented machine learning; 
 corpus-based language modeling; 
 multi-lingual processing, machine translation and translation aids; 
 natural language interfaces and dialogue systems; 
 approaches to coordinating the linguistic with other modalities 
 in multi-media systems; 
 message and narrative understanding systems; 
 tools and resources;
 evaluation of systems and evaluation methodology

Papers on tools and resources for less-studied European and
African/Mediterranean languages are particularly encouraged.

Requirements

Papers should describe original work; they should emphasize completed
work rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state
of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete
evaluation results should be included. A paper accepted for
presentation at the EACL Meeting cannot be presented or have been
presented at any other meeting with publicly available published
proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or
workshops must indicate this on the title page, as must papers that
contain significant overlap with previously published work.

Reviewing

The reviewing of the papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed
by an international Conference Program Committee consisting of Area
Chairs (to be announced). Each submission will be reviewed by at least
three reviewers. Final decisions on the technical program will be
made by the Conference Program Committee.

Submission Information

Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and
should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly
recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style
files available via the conference website,
http://www.conferences.hu/EACL03. A description of the format will
also be available in case you are unable to use these style files
directly. As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include
the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that
reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith,
1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith
previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...".

Papers that do not conform to the requirements above are subject to be
rejected without review.

Submission Procedure

You must submit a notification of submission by filling out
intention-to-submit form at a designated website. All papers must be
submitted electronically in PostScript format. Further details of the
submission procedure will be available on the conference website.

Deadlines

 Paper registration deadline: November 10, 2002
 Paper submissions deadline: November 15, 2002
 Notification of acceptance: January 15, 2003
 Camera ready papers due: February 15, 2003
 EACL-03 Conference: April 12-17, 2003


2. Research Note and Demo Sessions

The EACL-03 meeting will include Research Note Sessions and Demo Sessions.

RESEARCH NOTES should present work in progress, project status
reports, unevaluated results or system summaries (with or without
demos). In the programme of the conference there will be sessions
reserved for Research Notes. Presentations of Research Notes will be
shorter than regular papers' ones. Each Research Note will be
allocated 4 pages in the conference proceedings.

We also encourage the submission of SOFTWARE DEMOS related to any
areas of computational linguistics. Areas of interest include, but are
not limited to:
 * Natural language processing systems, including
 o Dialog systems and interfaces
 o Machine translation systems and translation aids
 o Message and narrative understanding systems.
 o Language-oriented information retrieval and information
 extraction systems
 * Application systems using embedded language technology components
 * Reusable components (speech recognizers, parsers, generators, ...)
 * Software tools for facilitating computational linguistics research
 * Software for demonstrating or evaluating computational
 linguistics research
 * Aids for teaching computational linguistics concepts

Demos of tools for less-studied European and African/Mediterranean
languages are particularly encouraged.

Developers should outline the design of their system and provide
sufficient details to allow the evaluation of its validity, quality,
and relevance to computational linguistics. Pointers to web sites
running the demo preview will also be helpful.

Research notes and demo submissions will be reviewed by an
international panel.

Format for Submission

Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and
should not exceed four (4) pages, including references. We strongly
recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style
files available via the conference website,
http://www.conferences.hu/EACL03. A description of the format will
also be available in case you are unable to use these style files
directly.

Submission Procedure

You must submit a notification of submission by filling out
intention-to-submit form at a designated website. All papers must be
submitted electronically in PostScript format. Further details of the
submission procedure will be available on the conference website.

Demo submissions should also clearly indicate if any computer
equipment is expected to be provided by the local organizer. If so,
please specify desired hardware platform, hard disk and memory
capacity, operating system and other software needed in order to run
the demo. Also mention name and contact information of systems
operations specialist. If you are bringing your own laptop, you should
instead request a video projector if you need one, providing details
about PC type, screen resolution, etc.

Deadlines

 Research Note registration deadline: December 1, 2002
 Research Note submissions deadline: December 6, 2002
 Notification of acceptance: January 15, 2003
 Camera ready papers due: February 15, 2003
