The Association for Computational Linguistics invites the submission
of papers for its 43rd Annual Meeting hosted jointly with the North
American Chapter of the ACL. Papers are invited on substantial,
original, and unpublished research on all aspects of computational
linguistics, including, but not limited to: pragmatics, discourse,
semantics, syntax, grammars and the lexicon; phonetics, phonology and
morphology; lexical semantics and ontologies; word segmentation,
tagging and chunking; parsing, generation and summarization; language
modeling, spoken language recognition and understanding; linguistic,
psychological and mathematical models of language; language-oriented
information retrieval, question answering, and information extraction;
machine learning for natural language; corpus-based modeling of
language, discourse and dialogue; multi-lingual processing, machine
translation and translation aids; multi-modal and natural language
interfaces and dialogue systems; applications, tools and resources;
and evaluation of systems.


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

A paper accepted for presentation at the ACL Meeting, including
ACL-related workshops and conferences, cannot be presented or have
been presented at any other meeting with publicly available published
proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or
workshops must indicate this on the title page, as must papers that
contain significant overlap with previously published work.


The reviewing of the papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed
by an international Conference Program Committee consisting of Area
Chairs and a team of reviewers. Final decisions on the technical
program will be made by the Conference Program Committee. Each
submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers.

Submission Information

Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and
should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly
recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style
files tailored for this year's conference. They will be available at
http://www.aclweb.org/acl2005. A description of the format will also
be available in case you are unable to use these style files
directly. Papers must conform to the official ACL-05 style guidelines,
and 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) ...". Papers that do not conform to these
requirements will be rejected without review.

Submission will be electronic using the paper submission software to
be made available at http://www.aclweb.org/acl2005. The papers must be
submitted no later than 5pm US Eastern time January 14, 2005 (10pm GMT
January 14, 2005). Papers submitted after that time will not be
