CALL FOR PAPERS
ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing
Special Issue on
Chinese Language Processing


The Chinese language has a number of characteristics that make Chinese
language processing particularly challenging and intellectually rewarding.
For example, written Chinese text does not have conventionalized word
boundaries like English and other Western languages, and researchers have
devoted an enormous amount of energy to figuring out the best way to
identify words, which is generally considered the first step for more
advanced language processing tasks. The Chinese language is also
characterized by the lack of formal devices such as morphological tense and
number that often provide important clues for shallow language processing
tasks like part-of-speech tagging and syntactic chunking. As a result,
solutions to Chinese language processing problems often require more
sophisticated language processing techniques that are capable of drawing
inferences from more subtle information. Papers are invited on substantial,
original and unpublished research on all aspects of Chinese language
processing. Substantial extensions of conference papers are also considered
(TALIP requires a submitted paper to have at least 25% new content from a
previously published version of the paper). The topics of interest include
but are not limited to:

- word segmentation
- part-of-speech tagging
- syntactic chunking and parsing
- lexical semantics
- semantic role labeling
- word sense disambiguation
- lexicon acquisition
- corpus development and language resources
- evaluation methods and user studies
- computational models of discourse
- temporal and spatial information processing
- sentimental analysis and opinion mining
- language generation
- information extraction
- question answering
- information retrieval
- dialogue systems
- machine translation

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:

Papers should be formatted following the style guidelines for ACM
Transactions (http://www.acm.org/publications/submissions). Please submit
papers in PDF format using the web-based submission system Manuscript
Central (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/talip). In order to identify the
submission as for the special issue, please indicate 'This paper is being
submitted to the Special Issue on Chinese Language Processing' on the cover
page of the paper.
