Previous WaC Workshop:


Co-chairs: Adam Kilgarriff and Marco Baroni


Despite the fact that a growing body of work has shown that the World Wide Web
is a mine of language data of unprecedented richness and ease of access (see,
e.g., the papers collected in Kilgarriff and Grefenstette, 2003), many
fundamental issues about the viability and exploitation of the Web as a
linguistic corpus are just starting to be tackled, ranging from Web frequency
distributions and registers, to efficient handling of massive data sets, to
copyright. Research on the Web as corpus is currently at a very exciting stage:
increasing evidence points to the enormous potential of the Internet as a source
of linguistic data, but we are still far from a working, fully-fledged
linguists' search engine.

We invite submissions which:

- describe Web corpus collection projects, or modules for one part of the
process (crawling, filtering, language-id, tokenizing, lemmatizing,
POS-tagging, indexing, ...)

- explore characteristics of Web data, from a linguistics/NLP perspective

- use crawled Web data for NLP purposes.

Preference will be given to projects where Web data are downloaded and processed
directly, rather than via search engine interfaces.

Submission Information

Authors are invited to submit full papers on original, unpublished work in the
topic area of this workshop. 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 or Microsoft Word style files tailored
for this year's conference available at


Papers must conform to the official EACL-06 style guidelines, and we reserve the
right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles, including font
size restrictions. Submissions should be in PDF format and must include all
fonts, so that the paper will print (not just view) anywhere.

Please submit your paper no later than January 6, 2006. Information on the
submission procedure will be posted on the workshop site as soon as possible,
and in any case well in advance of the submission deadline.

Each submission will be reviewed at least by two members of the program
committee. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.

Dual submissions to the main EACL 2006 conference and this workshop are allowed;
if you submit to the main session, do indicate this when you submit to the
workshop, and specify your EACL submission reference number, for administrative
ease. If your paper is accepted for the main session, you should withdraw your
paper from the workshop upon notification by the main session.

January 27, 2006 - Notification of acceptance

February 10, 2006 - Camera-ready papers due
