Location: Palm Beach, FL, USA
Contact Person: Mihai Lintean

Call Deadline: 22-Nov-2010

Meeting Description:

The track on Applied Natural Language Processing (ANLP), within FLAIRS,
is a forum for researchers working in natural language
processing(NLP)/computational linguistics(CL) and related areas. The rapid
pace of development of online materials, most of them in textual form or text
combined with other media (visual, audio), has led to a revived interest for
tools capable to understand, organize and mine those materials. Novel
human-computer interfaces, for instance talking heads, can benefit from
language understanding and generation techniques with big impact on user
satisfaction. Moreover, language can facilitate human-computer interaction
for the handicapped (no typing needed) and elderly, leading to an ever
increasing user base for computer systems.

Call for Papers

The goal of ANLP is to inform researchers as to current project and studies
that identify, investigate, and (begin to) resolve issues that relate to
human/computer language interaction.

We invite highly original papers that describe work in, but not limited to, the
following areas:

- NL-based representations and knowledge systems
- Syntax and Semantics (similarity metrics, lexical semantics)
- Coreference Resolution
- Word Sense Disambiguation
- Text Cohesion and Coherence
- Dialogue Management and NL-based Human-Computer Interraction
- Language Generation (answer and question generation)
- Language Models
- NL in Learning Environments
- Machine Learning applied to NL problems
- Multilingual Processing
- BioNLP
- Standardization, Language Resources, Corpora Building and Annotation
- Semantic Web, Ontologies, Reasoning
- Applications: Machine Translation, Information Retrieval, Summarization,
Intelligent Tutoring, Question Answering, Information Extraction and others
- Other related topics

Paper Submission
Submitted papers must be original, and not submitted concurrently to a
journal or another conference. Full papers may be up to 6 pages, and
poster papers up to 2 pages. Papers must be in AAAI format, and submitted
as PDF through the EasyChair conference system
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=flairs24) by selecting 'Applied
Natural Language Processing (ANLP)' under the 'New Submission' menu.
Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of FLAIRS-24 which will
be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to
sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. An author of
each accepted paper is required to register, attend, and present the paper
at FLAIRS. It is the requirement of FLAIRS that there will be at least one full
author registration per paper.

Important Dates
Submission Deadline: November 22, 2010
Author notification: January 21, 2011
