XI CORPUS LINGUISTICS MEETING (ELC 2012)

FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

The XI Corpus Linguistics Meeting invites professionals from the areas
of Linguistics, Computer Science, Historical Linguistics, Applied
Linguistics, Cognitive Linguistics, Information Sciences, and other
areas that use Corpus Linguistics to submit work in this
multidisciplinary area that is completed or under development. The XI
ELC will be held between September 13 and 15, 2012 at USP's Institute
of Mathematics and Computer Science, the headquarters of the
Interinstitutional Center for Computational Linguistics (NILC), in São
Carlos / SP, immediately after the VI Brazilian School of
Computational Linguistics, to be held on September 11 and 12, 2012.

This edition of ELC intends to address the topic "Technological
convergence for the processing and analysis of language: new
technologies for linguistic research and linguistic research for new
technologies." Natural Language Processing (NLP), also known as
Computational Linguistics and Corpus Linguistics (CL) have had a
significant development in recent decades, particularly in Europe and
the United States, mainly for the English language. In Brazil, despite
considerable advances in the last decade, these areas are not yet
widespread, because they are concentrated in a handful of
universities, and are part of larger areas such as Computing and
Linguistics. With this year's topic, we intend to highlight the
relevance of the tasks that emerge when NLP and LC converge.

We will select papers dealing with completed and substantial research,
presenting relevant results to the study area (whether practical or
theoretical), and work in progress, with partial results, software
proposals or demonstrations, or proposals for relevant research. There
will be no parallel sessions. It is expected that papers submitted
make it clear how the proposed research makes use of Corpus
Linguistics, by making syntheses and / or advances in the theory,
methodology, or assumptions, and presenting empirical results in areas
related to Corpus Linguistics.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Methodological Foundations of Corpus Linguistics;
* Compilation of Corpus;
* Web as Corpus;
* Building of Support Tools for Corpus Creation and Manipulation;
* Development of Analysis Tools for Annotated Corpora;
* Corpus annotation at various language levels and for various tasks
of Natural Language Processing;
* Morphology;
* Phonetics and Phonology;
* Lexis (Lexicology, Lexicography and Terminology / Phraseology);
* Syntax;
* Semantics;
* Text, Gender and Discourse;
* Metaphors;
* Pragmatics;
* Language Teaching;
* Terminology and specialized languages;
* Human and Machine Translation;
* Support Tools for Writing;
* Machine Learning for tasks of Natural Language Processing;
* Automatic Summarization using Corpora;
* Analysis of Text Readability;
* Text Simplification and Elaboration;
* Text Mining using Large Corpora.

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION OF PAPERS

Here are the guidelines for submission of papers for the two formats
explained above.

(1) COMPLETED RESEARCH WORK

These must be submitted as short papers (maximum 1800 words) either
for oral or poster presentation, both of which enjoy the same status
and the same treatment. The format of submission is the same, and both
the author and the committee of reviewers may indicate the format of
presentation. However, we emphasize that the final choice will be made
by the scientific committee, taking into account the format which most
effectively and informatively conveys the contents of the study.

The following are the guidelines for submission:

Papers should
- have between 1000 and 1800 words (written in Portuguese or English,
which will determine the language of presentation)
- have a centered title in capital letters, Times New Roman, font 12, bold;
- skip a line and start the text, written in Times New Roman, font 12,
normal, without footnotes, phonetic symbols or unusual characters to
the  Microsoft Word standard.

Authors should not identify themselves in the body of the text so as
not to impair the evaluation process.

Short papers should contain the following parts:
- background;
- short review of the literature;
- goal(s) of work;
- methodology;
- result(s);
- conclusion / recommendations.

Articles submitted will be subject to evaluation by the Scientific
Committee, which shall observe the following aspects: relevance of the
work for Corpus Linguistics, research quality (technical,
methodological, analytical), text quality (clarity and objectiveness),
attention to the guidelines, originality. The acceptance letter will
also specify the form of presentation - oral or poster.

(2) WORK IN PROGRESS

This session of the ELC is intended for presentation of papers about
research in Corpus Linguistics thathas not yet been completed or
defended, and whose results are not yet significant or expressive.
They must be submitted as an abstract of 500 words maximum for
presentation in a special session consisting of a first part called
"one minute of madness", in which the work is presented with one slide
in 1 minute. This is followed by presentation of the work on the
author's own laptop, at a table with chairs to seat presenter and
those interested in the presentation.
 The following are the guidelines for submission:

Papers should
- have between 300 and 500 words (written in Portuguese or English,
which will determine the language of presentation)
- have a centered title in capital letters, Times New Roman, font 12, bold;
- have the author's name (and name of supervisor, if applicable) and
institution indicating line of research, starting date of the survey
and probabledate of completion or defense.
- skip a line and start the text, written in Times New Roman, font 12,
normal, without footnotes, phonetic symbols or unusual characters to
the  Microsoft Word standard.

The body of the abstract should indicate the work proposed, the
research questions and the methodology selected for investigation, as
well as expected results. References should be limited to 05, and
indicated below the abstract.

IMPORTANT DATES

Deadline for short papers/abstracts: May 30, 2012
Notification to authors: July 6, 2012
Date of event: September 13 to 15, 2012

SUBMISSION

Short papers and abstracts should only be submitted via JEMS
(https://submissoes.sbc.org.br/) by the deadline indicated above. More
information about the submission, using the system, will be given
soon.
