Call For Participation


10th Conference of the Pacific Association for Computational Linguistics

University of Melbourne

September 19-21, 2007

url: http://mandrake.csse.unimelb.edu.au/pacling2007/

* Aims

Pacling 2007 is a high-quality, workshop-style conference whose aim is
to promote friendly scientific interaction relating to computational
linguistics among Pacific Rim countries. The emphasis of the
conference is on interdisciplinary scientific exchange demonstrating
openness towards high-quality research falling outside current
dominant schools of thought, and on technological transfer within the
Pacific region. The conference represents a unique forum for
scientific and technological exchange, being smaller than ACL and
COLING, and more regional with extensive representation from the
Pacific region.

* Theme and Invited Speakers

In addition to general computational linguistics, Pacling-2007 will
have a major theme:

Deep processing: Abstracting away from the surface

Three invited speakers will address this theme:

* ''Applying robust semantics''
Ann Copestake (University of Cambridge, UK)
* ''The Generation of Referring Expressions:
Where We've Been, How We Got Here, and Where We're Going''
Robert Dale (Macquarie University, Australia)
* ''Word Construction and Multi-layered Sentence Analysis''
Yuji Matsumoto (Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan)

* Program

The program consists of 39 papers in two parallel sessions:
The papers selected range over a variety of topics, including Machine
Translation, Parsing, Named Entity Extraction and Terminology.
In keeping with the theme of ``Deep processing: Abstracting away from
the surface'', the two most common themes are Lexical Semantics
(including WSD) and Question Answering.

* Organization

President: Shun Ishizaki (Keio University, Japan)

Program Chair: Francis Bond (NICT, Japan)

Local Chairs: Timothy Baldwin (University of Melbourne, Australia)
David Martinez (University of Melbourne, Australia)
