Call For Papers

The Program Committee of the 18th Nordic Conference of Computational
Linguistics (NODALIDA 2011) invites original papers on all aspects of
language technology, including, but not limited to:

- phonetics, phonology and morphology;
- speech recognition and speech synthesis;
- word segmentation, tagging and chunking;
- syntax, semantics and grammars;
- pragmatics, discourse and dialogue;
- the lexicon and ontologies;
- parsing and grammatical formalisms;
- generation, text planning and summarization;
- language modelling, spoken language recognition and synthesis;
- linguistic, psychological and mathematical models of language;
- information retrieval, text categorization, question answering and
information extraction;
- paraphrasing and textual entailment;
- machine learning for natural language;
- multi-lingual processing, machine translation and translation aids;
- multi-modal and natural language interfaces and dialogue systems;
- language-oriented applications, tools and resources;
- evaluation methodology.

Regular papers should describe original work; they should emphasize
completed work rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the
state of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete
evaluation results should be included. Papers reporting on-going work or
system demonstrations should be submitted as short papers. All
submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength,
significance and relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees.

Reviewing will be managed by the Program Committee and associated
reviewers. The reviewing process will be blind and each submission will
receive three independent reviews.

Categories of Papers:
Papers can be submitted to one of three categories: Regular Paper, Short
Paper, and Student Paper. Authors must designate one of these categories
at submission time. The three categories have different requirements on
authors, submission format and publication format:

Regular papers are submitted as full papers (max 8 pages). If accepted, a
regular paper can be presented either as a single talk during one of the
parallel paper sessions at the conference or as a poster in one of the poster
sessions. The authors can state their preference at submission time. In both
cases, the paper is published as a full paper (max 8 pages) in the
conference proceedings.

Short papers are submitted as extended abstracts (max 4 pages). They
can describe work in progress or system demonstrations. If accepted, a
short paper is presented at one of the poster or demo sessions at the
conference and is published as an extended abstract (max 4 pages) inthe
conference proceedings.

Student papers are submitted as extended abstracts (max 4 pages). All
authors of a student paper must be students (undergraduate or graduate).
If accepted, a student paper can be presented either as a single talk or as a
poster in one of the parallel student paper sessions at the conference.
Student papers are published in the conference proceedings.

Submission Information:
Submissions should follow the two-column format of EACL proceedings and
must use either the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word document template
that will be made available on the conference web site, courtesy of the
Association for Computational Linguistics. Regular paper submissions
should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references; student paper and
short paper submissions should not exceed four (4) pages. We reserve the
right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles, including font
size restrictions. As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the
authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the
author's identity, e.g., 'We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...', should be
avoided. Instead, use citations such as 'Smith previously showed (Smith,
1991) ...'. Submission will be electronic and must be made through the
conference website. The only accepted format for submitted papers is
Adobe PDF. Papers must be submitted no later than January 17, 2011.
Papers submitted after the deadline will not be reviewed.

Important Dates:
Submission of papers: January 17, 2011
Notification of acceptance (all paper types): March 21, 2011
Submission camera-ready papers: April 11, 2011
Workshops: May 11, 2011
Main conference: May 12-13, 2011
