Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 19-Jul-2010

Meeting Description:

The workshop aims at offering an insight into current research and
developments within the interdisciplinary field of natural language processing,
including those topics where Computational Linguistics and Web-based
technologies intersect. Both areas are inherently multidisciplinary and working
on related problems. The workshop is intended to foster collaboration in
information and language technologies.

This workshop is also conceived to provide a forum for researchers at all
levels and from heterogeneous backgrounds to present their work within this
field of research. Moreover, it is intended to promote the area of
Computational Linguistics in Argentina in particular and in Latin America in
general, and to establish and consolidate connections between communities
in the Iberoamerican area.

Submissions should describe original and unpublished research or innovative
industrial applications.

Call For Papers

Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Web-based technologies
held in conjunction with IBERAMIA 2010
November 1-5, 2010
Bahía Blanca, Argentina

http://www.cs.famaf.unc.edu.ar/~laura/nlpw/

Submissions are invited for papers, posters and demonstrations
presenting high quality, previously unpublished research on all areas
of computational linguistics and web-based technologies. Contributions
may present results from completed as well as ongoing research, with
an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and
perspectives. Submissions concerning languages in the Americas
(including Portuguese and Spanish) are particularly welcome.

Workshop Motivation and Aims

The workshop aims at offering an insight into current research and
developments within the interdisciplinary field of natural language
processing, including those topics where Computational Linguistics and
Web-based technologies intersect. Both areas are inherently
multidisciplinary and working on related problems. The workshop is
intended to foster collaboration in information and language
technologies.

This workshop is also conceived to provide a forum for researchers at
all levels and from heterogeneous backgrounds to present their work
within this field of research. Moreover, it is intended to promote the
area of Computational Linguistics in Argentina in particular and in
Latin America in general, and to establish and consolidate connections
between communities in the Iberoamerican area.

Submissions should describe original and unpublished research or
innovative industrial applications. Topics for submissions include,
but are not limited to:

- Spoken Language
- Language Generation
- Phonetics and Phonology
- Syntax and Morphology
- Lexicology and Lexicography
- Formal and Computational Semantics
- Pragmatics and Discourse
- Corpus Linguistics
- Psycholinguistics
- Linguistic Theories applied to NLP
- Statistical and Corpus-Based NLP
- Text Mining
- Machine Translation and Summarization
- Information Extraction
- Information Retrieval
- Classification and Clustering
- Question Answering
- Opinion Mining
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Systems Construction and Evaluation
- Clustering the blogosphere
- Blog summarization
- Subjectivity in texts
- Sentiment analysis
- Automatic humour recognition
- Folksonomies and social tagging
- Clustering and visualization of tag clouds
- Plagiarism detection of ideas
- Opinion analysis
- Sources of opinions and authorship attribution
- Product analysis and text-based market analysis
- Enterprise 2.0 search
- Web advisors

We welcome three types of contributions:

- Full papers for oral presentation (10 pages), presenting
substantial, original and completed research work.

- Short papers for presentation as posters (6 pages), with a small,
focused contribution, work in progress, a negative result or an
opinion piece.

- Student research papers for presentation at the Student Session (10
pages), authored exclusively by students.

Short papers/posters can be combined with a system demonstration.

The only accepted format for submitting papers is Adobe PDF. The
format should follow the Springer instructions available at
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

As the review process will be double-blind, your submission must not
include the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s). Furthermore,
self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., 'We
previously showed (Pérez, 2003) ...', must be avoided. Instead,
citations such as 'Pérez (2003) previously showed ...', must be used.

The proceedings of the workshop will be published as Technical Reports
and as CEUR workshop proceedings (CEUR-WS.org, ISSN 1613-0073). The
organizers plan to publish selected high quality submissions to the
workshop as a special issue of a reputed scientific journal.

Important Dates

Deadline for paper submission: July 19, 2010
Notification of acceptance: August 16, 2010
Deadline for camera-ready papers: September 15, 2010
