Meeting Description:

PROPOR2010: The 9th International Conference on the Computational Processing of Portuguese

Porto Alegre, Brazil hosted by PUCRS-Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul April 28-30, 2010

The International Conference on Computational Processing of Portuguese (PROPOR) is the main event in the area of Natural Language Processing that is focused on Portuguese and the issues related to this language.

It has been hosted in Brazil and in Portugal: Lisbon/PT (1993), Curitiba/BR (1996), Porto Alegre/BR (1998), Évora/PT (1999), Atibaia/BR (2000), Faro/PT (2003), Itatiaia/BR (2006) and Aveiro/PT (2008).

Call for Papers:

Topics of Interest:

Any topic of language and speech processing of Portuguese, including any applied task (e.g. word sense disambiguation, dialect identification, etc.), basic issue (e.g. parsing, evaluation, etc.), subdomain (e.g. phonology, dialogue, etc.), application (e.g. speech recognition, question answering, etc.), type of resource (e.g. corpora, ontologies, etc.), linguistic phenomenon (e.g. prosody, anaphora, etc.), or in any area benefiting from language and speech processing of Portuguese (e.g. information retrieval, subtitling, e-learning, research in the humanities, etc.), under any methodological perspective (e.g. machine learning, symbolic, etc.), from the industry or from any contributing academic discipline, including but not limited to Computation, AI, Engineering, Linguistics or Cognitive Science.

Important Dates:

September 21, 2009: Deadline for full paper submission
October 31, 2009: Notification of acceptance
November 16, 2009: Camera-ready papers due


Authors are invited to submit two kinds of papers:

- Full papers: reporting substantial, original and completed work, especially those that may contribute in a significant way to the advancement of the area - wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results should be included.

- Short papers: preference will be given to reports on ongoing work, position papers and potential ideas to be discussed.

Authors will be able to express their preference for full/short papers but the final decision is on the program chairs. Short papers may be selected for oral or poster presentation and should be up to 4 pages in length. Full papers will be presented in an oral session and should be up to 10 pages in length.

For the sake of accommodating the widest range of contributors, full paper acceptance is restricted to two papers per author.

Submissions will be evaluated by at least three reviewers. In order to ensure blind review, the author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the submission and self-reference should be in the third person. Submissions are written in English.

As in previous PROPOR editions, publication of full papers in an LNAI volume is planned. Selected short papers will be taken under consideration for LNAI publication.
