Subject: CfP COLING-2002 COLING-2002: Call for Papers [2002/01/09]


	19th International Conference on Computational Linguistics

		August, 24 - September, 1, 2002

	Howard International House, Taipei, Taiwan

Organized by:

	Academia Sinica, ACLCLP and Tsing Hua University

Under the Auspices of:

	The International Committee on Computational Linguistics



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 categories: 

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: 

o Complete a Paper Submission Form
 This form may be updated up to the deadline for paper submissions
 (15 February 2002).

o For your paper use the layout and format of papers described in the
 LATEX or Microsoft Word Style sheets (For more details on paper submission

o Electronic submissions of papers are strongly preferred. Papers should
 be sent to

o Hard copy papers are also accepted.

Further details will be available later.
