----------------------------------------------

NODALIDA 2011

The 18th Nordic Conference of Computational Linguistics
May 11-13, 2011 
Riga, Latvia

CALL FOR PAPERS
----------------------------
The Program Committee of the 18th Nordic Conference of Computational
Linguistics (NODALIDA 2011) invites original papers 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 modelling, spoken language recognition and synthesis;
- 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;
- multi-lingual processing, machine translation and translation aids;
- multi-modal and natural language interfaces and dialogue systems;
- language-oriented applications, tools and resources;
- evaluation methodology.

REQUIREMENTS
------------------
Regular 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. Papers reporting
on-going work or system  demonstrations should be submitted as short
papers. All submissions will be judged on correctness, originality,
technical strength, significance and relevance to the conference, and
interest to the attendees.  

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

CATEGORIES OF PAPERS
----------------------------
Papers can be submitted to one of three categories: REGULAR PAPER,
SHORT PAPER, and STUDENT PAPER. 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 can be presented either as a single talk
during one of the parallel paper sessions at the conference or as a
poster in one of the poster sessions. The authors can state their
preference at submission time. In both cases, the paper is published
as a full paper (max 8 pages) in the conference proceedings. 

SHORT PAPERS are submitted as extended abstracts (max 4 pages). They
can describe work in progress or system demonstrations. If accepted, a
short paper is presented at one of the poster or demo sessions at the
conference and is published as an extended abstract (max 4 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 can be presented either as a
single talk or as a poster in one of the parallel student paper
sessions at the conference. Student papers are published in the
conference proceedings. 

SUBMISSION INFORMATION
--------------------------------
Submissions should follow the two-column format of EACL 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 short paper 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 previously
showed (Smith, 1991) ...".  


Submission will be electronic and must be made through the EasyChair website 
of the conference http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nodalida2011 . 
The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe
PDF. Papers must be submitted no later than January 17, 2011.  
Papers submitted after the deadline will not be reviewed.
