      The seventh international Symposium on Natural Language Processing, 
SNLP2007, is hosted by Kasetsart University in cooperation with the Thailand's 
National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC). The 
conference will be held in Pattaya, Chonburi, Thailand, from 13th -15th 
December 2007 and tutorials on December 11th-12th. The theme of the 
conference is "Language Technology for Diversity Bridging". 

      The Symposium on Natural Language Processing (SNLP) is an international 
conference held biannually since 1993 with the cooperative effort of a number of 
universities in Thailand. The purpose of SNLP is to promote research in Natural 
Language Processing by bringing together researchers and practitioners in the 
field to exchange ideas and present results from research in Natural Language 
Processing and various related fields. Papers are invited on substantial, original, 
and unpublished research on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, 
but not limited to: 

syntax, semantics, grammars, lexicon, morphology and phonology 
pragmatics and discourse 
parsing, generation and summarization 
machine translation and multilingual processing 
question answering, information extraction, information retrieval and text mining 
natural language applications, tools and resources, system evaluation 
natural language processing for web, knowledge-management systems 
language modeling, statistical methods in natural language processing 
machine learning for natural language 
natural language interfaces and dialogue systems 
lexical semantics and ontologies for NLP 
linguistic, psychological and mathematical models of language 
computational psycholinguistics 
phonetics, phonology and morphology 
interpreting and generating spoken and written language 
message and narrative understanding systems 
speech processing 
evaluation of speech understanding/dialogue systems 
multi-modal speech corpora 
speech corpus annotation tools 
spoken language processing 
the internet's effects on linguistic diversity 
modifying computers to meet minority language requirements 

1. Requirements
      Papers should describe original work. 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 SNLP2007 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 

2. Submission Information
      Submissions should follow a two-column format and should not exceed six 
(6) pages, including references. We strongly recommend the use of SNLP2007 
Style files tailored for SNLP2007. The files and a description of the format are 
available in the submission site.

      Submission Site: http://naist.cpe.ku.ac.th/snlp2007

      Note that full paper submissions are restricted to 6 pages.

      Note also that 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 (Kim, 1991) ...", should be 
avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Kim, 
1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to the requirements above are subject to 
be rejected without review. 

3. More Information
For queries about complying to the submission process, e-mail 
snlp2007 at naist.cpe.ku.ac.th sufficiently ahead of the submission deadline so 
that alternate arrangements can be made. For help with difficulties in electronic 
submission or technical problems, contact snlp2007@ naist.cpe.ku.ac.th.
