Meeting Description:

The Computational Linguistics and Language Technologies Group of the Departments
of Linguistics and Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University
are pleased to sponsor the second meeting of the Midwest Computational
Linguistics Colloquium (MCLC). This colloquium offers a less formal forum for
computational linguistics researchers to get together and present ideas and
work. It is intended to be primarily for researchers from the Midwest region,
but applications from all regions are welcome. The first meeting of MCLC was
successfully held at University of Indiana Bloomington in 2004, and with this
second installment it is on its way to becoming an annual event.

The Organizing Committee invites submission of extended abstracts addressing any
aspect of computational linguistics. As MCLC is intended to provide a forum for
presentation of original research ideas that may benefit from peer review and
discussion, both completed work and work-in-progress are welcome. Submissions
from faculty, graduate students, and other researchers are all encouraged.

INVITED SPEAKER

Richard Sproat, University of Illinois

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

- Interested researchers should submit a 2-page extended abstract (including
references) using the ACL style file.

- Abstracts should be submitted by email to jianguo AT ling.osu.edu or xflu AT
ling.osu.edu. The abstract should be attached as a .pdf (preferred) or .doc
file. The name of the file should be the first word of the title plus underscore
plus your last name (e.g., Firstword_Lastname.pdf). The subject of the email
should be ''MCLC submission''.

- The abstracts should be anonymous. In the body of the email, include the

title of the paper; the name of the file attached; a note indicating your
equipment requirements; and any additional comments.

REVIEW

Each abstract will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. The major criteria of
evaluation will be the originality, soundness, and clarity of the research idea
presented and the relevance of the topic to the colloquium.

PUBLICATION

Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited (but not required) to submit a 4-8
page full paper using the ACL style files for the proceedings, which will be
distributed in a CD. Copyright of a submitted paper remains with the author(s).
