Following up on the higly successful events at Stanford (1984) and
Montreal (1998), the International Committee on Computational
Linguistics and the Association for Computational Linguistics will be
hosting their third joint conference in Sydney, July 17th-21st,

Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research
on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not
limited to: pragmatics, semantics, syntax, grammars and the lexicon;
phonetics, phonology and morphology; lexical semantics and ontologies;
word segmentation, tagging and chunking; parsing, generation and
summarization; language modeling, spoken language recognition and
understanding; linguistic, psychological and mathematical models of
language; information retrieval, question answering, information
extraction and text mining; machine learning for natural language;
corpus-based modeling of language, discourse and dialogue;
multi-lingual processing, machine translation and translation aids;
multi-modal and natural language interfaces and dialogue systems;
applications, tools and language resources such as annotated
corpora; and system evaluation.

We are particularly interested in bridging the gap to other related
communities, and so we especially welcome papers on speech technology
and information retrieval. Also, for this first joint COLING/ACL
conference to be held in Asia we especially encourage papers that
address issues specific to the processing of Asian languages.


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. Submissions will be judged on
correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and
relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees.

Submissions presented at the joint COLING/ACL conference should mostly
contain new material that has not been, and will not be, presented at
any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Papers that
are being submitted in parallel to other conferences or workshops must
indicate this on the title page, as must papers that contain
significant overlap with previously published work.


Reviewing will be managed by an international Conference Program
Committee consisting of Area Chairs and associated Program Committee
Members. The names of the Area Chairs will be communicated within the
next few weeks. The reviewing process will be blind and each
submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee

Categories of Papers

Papers can be submitted to one of two categories: the REGULAR PAPER
category or the POSTER category. Authors must designate one of these
categories at submission time. Although both categories of submmission
will be the same maximum length, regular papers will be presented a
single time to a potentially large audience during one of the parallel
paper sessions at the conference, and poster presentations will be
repeated several times before small groups of people (using paper
posters or demos) at one of the conference poster sessions. Regular
papers are most appropriate for presenting substantial research
results, while posters are more appropriate for presenting an ongoing
research effort. Regular papers and poster papers will appear in
separate volumes of the proceedings.

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 the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word document
template that will be made available on the conference Web site. A
description of the required format will be made available to those who
are unable to make direct use of these style files. We reserve the
right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles,
including font size restrictions.

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 these
requirements will be rejected without review.

Submission will be electronic. The only accepted format for submitted
papers is Adobe PDF. The papers must be submitted no later than
February 28, 2006. Papers submitted after that time will not be
reviewed. For details of the submission procedure, please consult the
submission webpage reachable via the conference website at

Questions regarding the submission procedure should be directed to the
Program Co-Chairs (cardiecs.cornell.edu, isabellepnrc.ca).


Paper submission deadline: February 28, 2006
Notification of acceptance: April 28, 2006
Camera ready papers due: May 19, 2006
COLING/ACL 2006 Conference: July 17-21, 2006

Mentoring Service

ACL is providing a mentoring (coaching) service for authors from
regions of the world where English is not the language of scientific
exchange. Many authors from these regions, although able to read the
scientific literature in English, have little or no experience in
writing papers in English for conferences such as the COLING and ACL
meetings. The service will be arranged as follows. A set of potential
mentors will be identified by Richard Power, who has agreed to
organize this service for COLING/ACL 2006.

Richard Power
Information Technology Research Institute
University of Brighton
Watts Building
Lewes Road
Brighton BN24GJ
+44 1273 642904
+44 1273 642908 (fax)
Email: Richard.Poweritri.brighton.ac.uk

To take advantage of this service, send the paper electronically to
the above email address, using pdf, ps or doc format. Alternatively,
hard copy can be sent to the postal address. The paper should arrive
before January 28, 2006. An appropriate mentor will be assigned to
your paper and the mentor will get back to you by February 21, 2006,
at least seven days before the deadline for the submission to
COLING/ACL 2006. Please note that this service is for the benefit of
the authors as described above. It is not a general mentoring service
for authors to improve their papers.

If you have any questions about this service please feel free to send
a message to Richard Power.
