Abstract Submission Guidelines

The deadline for the receipt of the abstract forms is April 5, 2009 (Farvardin
16, 1388)

The international Tellsi7 conference provides a forum for the participants to
submit abstracts for inclusion in the conference program. They can cover a wide
variety of topics reflecting the diverse aspects of English Language teaching
today. The forum also enables the participants to benefit from a vast amount of
professional presentations as well as informal discussions they have through
their short stay in the conference.

Deadline: All proposals must be submitted by April 5, 2009. presenters will
receive an acknowledgement letter from the conference secretariat within a week
of receipt of their proposals. The notification of acceptance of the abstracts
will be made by May 23, 2009
(Khordad 2, 1388).

Types of Presentation:
Paper: 30 minutes which include 10 minutes of question time
Workshop: 60 minutes which include 15 minutes question time
Poster: size up to a maximum of 42" x 52"

All proposals for paper presentations must include the following information:
- Name of the presenter/s
- Institutional affiliation
- Contact details (email address, mailing address, telephone number)
- Biodata of about 50 words
- Title of the paper
- Abstract of 250-300 words
- Status of the research project (ongoing or completed)

Desirable Features of Abstracts:
Evaluators of abstracts will appreciate your attention to the following:
- Innovative nature of the work
- Informative title (not more than 10 words),
- Clear statement of the purpose, problems or questions addressed,
- Methods of research,
- Findings, conclusion, and implication of the study

Abstracts should take the form of a WORD or PDF format, with all non-standard
fonts embedded in it. The presenters are to use the Submission Proposal Forms.
All abstracts should be in English. Submissions not adhering to these guidelines
will not be considered for presentation at the conference.

Presenters can submit only one independent and two joint abstracts for a talk,
workshop, and poster.

Meeting Description:

Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology (sfcm 2009)
Workshop date: September 4, 2009
Location: University of Zurich, Switzerland
Submission deadline: March 1, 2009

Call for Papers

This workshop concentrates on actual, working systems and frameworks of at least
prototype quality. To ensure fruitful discussions among workshop participants,
submissions on concrete morphology systems are preferably for German;
submissions on morphological frameworks are relevant if the framework can be
used to implement components for different languages.

In contrast to, for example, Morphochallenge, this workshop focuses on systems
and frameworks based on linguistic principles and providing linguistically
motivated analyses and/or generation on the basis of linguistic categories.

The topics of this workshop include both technical aspects, applications, and
uses of systems and frameworks for computational morphology. While purely
theoretical submissions may be relevant, the focus of the workshop is clearly on
actual, working systems and prototypes.

The workshop will mainly focus on German, but contributions for other languages
are encouraged in order to demonstrate open-source tools and runtime software
for full-scale morphologies. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Frameworks for developing morphological components.
- Open-source tools and resources for morphology.
- Descriptions of systems for analyzing and generating wordforms, especially for
- Suitability of morphological components for interactive use.
- Use cases for morphological analysis and generation in applications.
- Reports on actual uses of morphological analysis and generation in applications.
- Methods and criteria for evaluating morphologic components with respect to
performance, quality, and coverage.
- Software engineering aspects: APIs, robustness, performance, hardware/software
requirements, resource usage.
- License models and legal aspects.

There will be opportunities for demonstrating systems.

We invite researchers to submit full papers of up to 20 pages (including
references) or short papers of up to 10 pages. Papers submitted at review stage
must not contain the authors' names, affiliations, or any information that may
disclose the authors' identity.

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their research at the
workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the workshop
by Springer in their series Communications in Computer and Information Science.

The papers must use the Springer LNCS format. We recommend to use the LaTeX2e
format. Please strictly follow the Springer LNCS format guidelines. Papers must
be submitted electronically in PDF format. For paper submissions we use
EasyChair, see
