Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 21-Mar-2014

Meeting Description:

The COLING conference, organised under the auspices of the International Committee on Computational Linguistics (ICCL), has a history that dates back to the 1960s. The conference is held every two years and regularly attracts more than 700 delegates. The 1st conference was held in New York, 1965. Since then, the conference has developed into one of the premier Natural Language Processing conferences world-wide held every two years. The last five conferences were held in Geneva (COLING 2004), Sydney (COLING - ACL 2006), Manchester (COLING 2008), Beijing (COLING 2010) and Mumbai (COLING 2012).

COLING covers a broad spectrum of technical areas related to natural language and computation. The conference will include full papers, oral presentations, poster presentations, demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops.

2nd Call for Papers:

Dublin, Ireland
August 23-29, 2014

Topics of Interest:

Coling 2014 solicits papers and demonstrations on original and unpublished research on the following topics, including, but not limited to:

- Pragmatics, semantics, syntax, grammars and the lexicon
- Cognitive, mathematical and computational models of language processing
- Models of communication by language
- Lexical semantics and ontologies
- Word segmentation, tagging and chunking
- Parsing, both syntactic and deep
- Generation and summarisation
- Paraphrasing, textual entailment and question answering
- Speech recognition, text-to-speech and spoken language understanding
- Multimodal and natural language interfaces and dialogue systems
- Information retrieval, information extraction and knowledge base linking
- Machine learning for natural language
- Modelling of discourse and dialogue
- Sentiment analysis, opinion mining and social media
- Multilingual processing, machine translation and translation aids
- Applications, tools and language resources
- System evaluation methodology and metrics

Paper Requirements:

Papers should describe original work; they should emphasise completed work or well-advanced ongoing research rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results should be included.

Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees.

Submissions presented at the conference should mostly contain new material that has not been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Papers that are being submitted in parallel to other conferences or workshops must indicate this on the title page, as must papers that contain significant overlap with previously published work.


Reviewing will be double blind. It will be managed by an international Conference Program Committee consisting of Program Chairs, members of the Scientific Advisory Board and Area Chairs, who will be assisted by invited reviewers.

Instructions for Authors:

Submissions must be uploaded on the START system (https://www.softconf.com/coling2014/main/) by the submission deadlines; submissions after that time will not be reviewed. To minimise network congestion, we request authors to upload their submissions as early as possible. For full author instructions see http://www.coling-2014.org/instructions-for-authors.php

February 2014: Opening of the submission website: https://www.softconf.com/coling2014/main/
March 21, 2014: Paper submission deadline
May 9-12, 2014: Author response period
