Meeting Description:

NAACL HLT 2010 Workshop on Computational Approaches to Linguistic Creativity
2010 (CALC-10)
Los Angeles, June 5 or 6, 2010

First Call for Papers

We are particularly interested in work on the automatic detection,
classification, understanding, or generation of:
- neologisms;
- creative use of figurative language, including metaphor, metonymy,
personification, and idioms;
- new or unconventional syntactic constructions (e.g., 'May I serve who's next?');
- indirect speech acts (such as curses, insults, sarcasm, and irony), verbally
expressed humor, poetry, and fiction;
- other phenomena illustrating linguistic creativity (e.g., eggcorns such as
'once and a while' for 'once in a while'; new and emerging forms found in
computer-mediated communication).

We also welcome descriptions and discussions of:
- computational tools that support people in using language creatively (e.g.,
tools for computer-assisted creative writing, intelligent thesauri);
- computational and/or cognitive models of linguistic creativity;
- metrics and tools for evaluating the performance of creativity-aware systems;
- specific application scenarios of computational linguistic creativity;

Related topics, including corpora collection, elicitation, and annotation of
creative language usage, will also be considered, as long as their relevance to
automatic systems is clearly demonstrated.

Submission Information:
Submissions should describe original, unpublished work. Papers are limited to 8
pages. Please use the NAACL HLT 2010 style files, available here:
http://naaclhlt2010.isi.ed/authors.html No author information should be
included in the papers, since reviewing will be blind. Papers not conforming to
these requirements are subject to rejection without review. Papers should be
submitted via START; more information on this will be available soon on the
workshop website (http://www.aclweb.org/aclwiki/index.php?title=CALC-10).

The CALC-10 workshop will be held in conjunction with NAACL HLT 2010 in Los
