Full Title: Natural Language Engineering

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 30-Aug-2010

Call for special issue proposals:
The Journal of Natural Language Engineering (NLE) invites proposals for
special issues on a competitive basis on any topics about applied NLP which
have emerged as important developments in Natural Language Engineering and
which have attracted the attention of a number of researchers or research
groups. Topics covering NLP methods, tasks and resources could include but
are not limited to POS tagging, parsing, semantic role labelling, word
sense disambiguation, anaphora and coreference resolution, named entity
recognition, natural language generation, speech recognition, speech
synthesis, multimodal processing, statistical methods in Natural Language
Engineering, machine learning, evaluation methodologies, corpora and
ontologies. Topics covering NLP applications could include but are not
limited to machine translation, translation memory and translation tools,
summarisation, information retrieval, information extraction, question
answering, text and web mining, opinion mining and NLP for biomedical texts.

Calls for special issue proposals may be based on a successful workshop or
a body of work associated with a particular group or section of the
community. In all cases, however, the reviewing process of the accepted
proposals will be rigorous and all submissions must be reviewed by at least
3 members of the Guest Editorial Board or other suitable reviewers agreed
on by the NLE Editors. In the case of papers previously submitted to
workshops, the Guest Editors will not be able to re-use previous workshop

In addition, the call for papers of the accepted proposals must be open to
all interested parties and all authors will be given equal treatment; in
the case of proposals based on previous workshops, submissions cannot be
limited to workshop participants only.

Interested editors have the option of preliminary feedback by emailing
expressions of interest accompanied by a brief description of the intended
special issue to the Executive Editor (R.Mitkovwlv.ac.uk, with cc
to jnlewlv.ac.uk). He will give a brief indication of whether the topic is
appropriate to Natural Language Engineering.

In the case of initial positive feedback, the prospective Guest Editors
will be
asked to submit a proposal for a special issue which will be reviewed by
the Editors of the journal and by other members of the Journal Editorial
Board. At least one proposal will be selected on a competitive basis for
each call with the envisaged publication date for the successful
proposal(s) from this call on or after January 2011.

The proposal for a special issue should include a brief outline of the
field and rationale as to why it is important to launch a special issue on
the particular topic of interest. It should include a relevant literature
survey (related previous special issues, volumes, workshop and conference
proceedings) and should explain the added value of the proposed special
issue against the background of other relevant or competing publications
and volumes (if applicable). It is desirable that a rough estimate of
expected submissions to the special issue be provided. The proposals should
also include a tentative Guest Editorial Board (it is desirable that one of
the members of the Guest Editorial Board be a member of the Journal
Editorial Board), tentative time-scale for the production of the special
issue and information about the prospective Guest Editors (relevant
experience, publications etc.).

- Deadline for submission of special issue proposals: 30 August 2010
(proposals to be emailed to jnlewlv.ac.uk)
- Notification of acceptance/rejection: 30 September 2010
- Final version of the successful proposal(s) and call for papers: 15 October
