Meeting Description:

The CLA Workshop is located within the framework of the IMCSIT conference to
create a dialog between researchers and practitioners involved in Computational
Linguistics and related areas of Information Technology.

IMSCIT is a multi-disciplinary conference gathering scientists form the
different fields of IT & Computer Science together with representatives of
industry and end-users. IMSCIT with its motto: "new ideas are born not inside
peoples' heads but in the space between them", quickly became a unique place to
share thoughts and ideas.

Workshop Goals
The Computational Linguistics - Applications Workshop was created in 2008 in
response to the fast-paced progress in the area.

Traditionally, computational linguistics was limited to the scientists
specialized in the processing of a natural language by computers. Scientific
approaches and practical techniques come from linguistics, computer science,
psychology, and mathematics. Nowadays, there is a number of practical
applications available. These applications are sometimes developed by smart yet
NLP-untrained developers who solve the problems using sophisticated heuristics.

Computational Linguistics needs to be applied to make the full use of the
Internet. There is a definite need for software that can handle unstructured
text to allow search for information on the web. According to the European
Commission, Human Language Technologies are one of the key research areas for
the upcoming years. The priority aim of the research in this area is to enable
users to communicate with the computer in their native language.

CLA'10 Workshop is a place where the parties meet to exchange views and ideas
with a benefit to all involved. The Workshop will focus on practical outcome of
modeling human language use and the applications needed to improve human-machine

Call for Papers

Paper Topics

This call is for papers that present research and developments on all aspects of
Natural Language Processing used in real-life applications, such as (this list
is not exhaustive):
- information retrieval
- extraction of linguistic knowledge from text corpora
- semantic ontologies in computer linguistics
- lexical resources
- machine translation and translation aids
- ambiguity resolution
- text classification
- corpus-based language modeling
- POS-tagging
- parsing issues
- proofing tools
- dialogue systems
- machine learning methods applied to language processing
- ontology and taxonomy evaluation
- opinion mining
- question answering
- sentiment analysis
- speech and audio processing
- text summarization
- use of NLP techniques in practical applications

Paper Presentation
The presentation of the paper has to include a demonstration of an existing
tool. The papers should include a section describing the tool (or a prototype),
which demonstrates the theory discussed in the paper.

The presentation is divided into two parts. First, the author(s) shortly
demonstrate their tools to the audience. In the second part, the authors discuss
their work with other participants and let the audience test their software.

Papers will be evaluated and accepted on the basis of their technical merit,
usefulness of the real life application and relevance to the workshop scope by
the CLA'10 Program Committee. The paper will be assessed by academics as well as
industry representatives in order to assure fair and balanced assessment.

All accepted and presented papers will be published in the Conference
Proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore® database. The best demonstrations
will be selected to be shown to the general audience of the conference at a
plenary session.

Papers Submission
- Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF of MSWord file).
- The total length of a paper should not exceed 8 pages (IEEE style). IEEE
style templates will be available ASAP.
- Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific
merit and relevance to the workshop.
- Accepted and Presented paper will be published in the Conference
Proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore® database.
- Organizers reserve right to move accepted papers between IMCSIT events.
