    The 16th Nordic Conference of Computational Linguistics

                      FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

The Program Committee of the 16th Nordic Conference of Computational
Linguistics (NODALIDA 2007), to be held in Tartu, Estonia, May 25-26,
2007. invites papers on substantial, original, and unpublished
research 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 modeling, spoken language recognition, and understanding;
- 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;
- multilingual processing, machine translation, and translation aids;
- multimodal and natural language interfaces and dialogue systems;
- language-oriented applications, tools, and resources;
- evaluation methodology.

REQUIREMENTS

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. Submissions presented at NODALIDA 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

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

CATEGORIES OF PAPERS

Papers can be submitted to one of three categories: REGULAR PAPER,
STUDENT PAPER and POSTER. 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 is presented a single time during one of the
parallel paper sessions at the conference and is published as a full
paper (max 8 pages) in the 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 is presented a single time
during one of the parallel student paper sessions at the conference
and is published either as an extended abstract (max 4 pages) or as a
full paper (max 8 pages) in the conference proceedings according to
the authors' own choice.

POSTERS are submitted as extended abstracts (max 4 pages). If
accepted, a poster is presented repeatedly to small groups of people
at one of the conference poster sessions and is published either as an
extended abstract (max 4 pages) or as a full paper (max 8 pages) in
the conference proceedings according to the authors' own choice.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION

Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL 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 poster 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 (1991)
previously showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these
requirements will be rejected without review. Submission will be
electronic. The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe
PDF. Regular papers must be submitted no later than January 19, 2006;
student papers and posters must be submitted no later than February 9,
2006. Papers submitted after the deadlines will not be
reviewed. Questions regarding the submission procedure should be
directed to the Program Chair (nivre at msi.vxu.se).
