Meeting Description

The Doctoral Consortium at EUROLAN-2007 will provide an opportunity for graduate
students (PhD and MSc heading towards PhD studies) investigating topics in
Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing to present their
current work and receive constructive feedback and guidance on future research,
both from the general audience and the invited lecturers at the Summer School.

The Doctoral Consortium will be held as a workshop during 3 or 4 consecutive
evenings (1.5 hour slots) in one of the two weeks of the EUROLAN 2007 Summer
School. The final version of the accepted papers will be published in the
Proceedings of the EUROLAN 2007 Doctoral Consortium. During the Summer School
the students will present their work, receive constructive comments wrt. to
current and future research directions from a panel of established researchers,
and will benefit from the collaborative climate established among all
participants, thus enhancing future joint work among them. Students will also
prepare a poster which will be on display throughout the Summer School.

Doctoral Consortium - Call for Papers

Submission Deadline: May 7, 2007

1. General Information

We invite all interested graduate students to submit their work to the
Consortium. As the main goal of the Consortium is for the authors to receive
feedback, the emphasis is on work in progress.

The research presented can be from any topic area within Computational
Linguistics and Natural Language Processing, however students working in the
areas related with the theme of this year's Summer School like:
- computational semantics,
- ontology enriched NLP applications,
- opinion and sentiment analysis,
- role of sentiment analysis in multimodal human computer interaction,
are particularly encouraged to submit their work.

Well-known researchers from these areas will be invited lectures of the school
and therefore available for interesting discussions.

2. Submission Requirements

The submissions should describe original work, still in progress. The
submissions may have more than one author; however, all of them must be students.
The paper should include:
- the problem(s) that the proposed research is addressing,
- the main contribution(s) of the research to the CL & NLP field,
- the proposed solution(s), including a brief description of the methodology
- the future research plan.

3. Submission Procedure

Submission must be electronic. The following formats are acceptable: PDF (.pdf),
PostScript (.ps), Rich Text Format (.rtf), Microsoft Word (.doc). Submissions
should not exceed 8 pages, including references and annexes and should follow
the Springer format, soon available as a .dot template on the web page of the
event. The papers will be uploaded on a special page, to be announced on the web
page of the Doctoral Consortium.

4. Important Dates

Paper submissions deadline: May 7, 2007
Notification of acceptance: May 28, 2007
Camera ready papers due: June 18, 2007
Summer School dates: July 23 - August 3, 2007

5. Registration

Authors of accepted papers must register for the Summer School and present their
work at the EUROLAN 2007 Doctoral Consortium. No supplementary fee will be
required above the EUROLAN fee. The authors will benefit of early registration
fee regardless of the date they register. Participation in the Doctoral
Consortium is open to all EUROLAN 2007 attendants.

A limited number of registration and accommodation discounts/waivers will be
available. The authors of accepted papers with reduced possibilities to support
their participation to the Doctoral Consortium and the Summer School will have
