Full Title: 11th Meeting of the ACL-SIGMORPHON
Short Title: ACL-SIGMORPHON 2010

Date: 15-Jul-2010 - 15-Jul-2010
Location: Uppsala, Sweden
Contact Person: Jeffrey Heinz
Meeting Email: sigmorphon2010udel.edu
Web Site: http://phonology.cogsci.udel.edu/sigmorphon2010/

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Morphology; Phonetics; Phonology

Call Deadline: 25-Apr-2010

Meeting Description:

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in
applying computational techniques to problems in morphology, phonology, and
phonetics. Papers will be on substantial, original, and unpublished research on
these topics, potentially including strong work in progress.

Call for Papers

Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to) the following as they relate
to the areas of the workshop:

- Unsupervised, semi-supervised or machine learning of linguistic knowledge
- New formalisms, computational treatments, or probabilistic models of existing
linguistic formalisms
- Models of psycholinguistic, experimental results
- Models of historical sound change
- Morpheme identification and word segmentation
- Finite-state methods
- Corpus linguistics
- Machine transliteration and back-transliteration
- Speech technologies relating to phonetics or phonology
- Speech science (both production and comprehension)
- Analysis or exploitation of multilingual, multi-dialectal, or diachronic data
- Integration of morphology, phonology, or phonetics with other NLP tasks
- Tools and resources

One of the missions of SIGMORPHON is to encourage interaction between work in
computational linguistics and work in theoretical phonetics, phonology and
morphology, and to ensure that each of these fields profits from the
interaction. Our recent meetings have been successful in this regard, and we
hope to see this continue in 2010. Many mainstream linguists studying
phonetics, phonology and morphology are employing computational tools and models
that are of considerable interest to computational linguists. Similarly, models
and tools developed by and for computational linguists may be of interest to
theoretical linguists working in these areas. This workshop provides a forum
for these researchers to interact and become exposed to each others' ideas and

This workshop will be the eleventh meeting of SIGMORPHON (formerly called
SIGPHON). We will hold a full-day workshop consisting of approximately 12
half-hour presentations.

The workshop will be held on July 15, immediately after the ACL 2010 meetings at
Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden.

The workshop website is: http://phonology.cogsci.udel.edu/sigmorphon2010/

Important Dates
- Submission Deadline: April 25, 2010, 23:59 EDT
- Notification: May 19, 2010
- Camera-ready deadline: June 2, 2010
- Workshop: July 15 or 16, 2010

Paper Submission
Content: Papers should be original, topical, and clear. Completed work is
preferable to intended work, but in any event the paper should clearly indicate
the state of completion of the reported results. Authors are encouraged to study
the actual form used by reviewers
(http://phonology.cogsci.udel.edu/sigmorphon2010/review-form.html) to assess papers.

Submission Format: The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF.
Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings, and should
not exceed eight (8) pages. One additional page is allowed for the References
section. Thus, your PDF file may be 9 pages. However, all material other than
the bibliography must fall within the first 8 pages! We strongly recommend the
use of the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word document template that are
available on the ACL conference web site (http://acl2010.org/authors.html). We
reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles,
including font size restrictions.

Anonymous Review: Reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper
must not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore,
self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g.,"'We previously showed
(Smith, 1991) ...", must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith
(1991) previously showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements
will be rejected without review.

Conflicts of Interest: Authors should mark on the submission page any program
committee member with whom they have a conflict of interest, such as a recent
collaborator, a recent colleague at the same institution, or a close personal

Double Submitting: Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings
or publications must provide this information on the START online submission
page. Papers may not be submitted to SIGMORPHON 2010 if they are currently or
will be submitted to other meetings or publications and that other meeting or
publication prohibits multiple submission. If SIGMORPHON 2010 accepts a paper,
authors must notify the program chairs *immediately* indicating which meeting
they choose for presentation of their work. SIGMORPHON 2010 cannot accept for
publication or presentation work that will be (or has been) published elsewhere.

Submission Procedure: Authors must submit papers online here:

The submission deadline is Sunday April 25, 2010 23:59 EDT. Papers
submitted after the deadline will not be reviewed.

Lynne Cahill (University of Brighton)
