JapTAL2012, the 8th International Conference on Natural Language
Processing, 22-24 October 2012
Kanazawa, Japan 

Paper submission deadline: 25 June 2012 (extended)

We are pleased to invite participation in JapTAL2012 organised by the
Toyohashi University of Technology (TUT).


JapTAL is the eighth in the series of the TAL conferences, following
IceTAL 2010 (Reykjavik, Iceland), GoTAL 2008 (Gothenburg, Sweden),
FinTAL 2006 (Turku, Finland), EsTAL 2004 (Alicante, Spain), PorTAL 2002
(Faro, Portugal), VexTAL 1999 (Venice, Italy) and FracTAL 1997
(Besancon, France).

The main purpose of the TAL conference series is to bring together
scientists representing linguistics, computer science and related
fields, sharing a common interest in the advancement of computational
linguistics and natural language processing. The conference will consist
of keynote talks, oral and poster presentations, invited sessions and
workshops, on the applications and theory of natural language processing
and related areas. It will provide excellent opportunities for the
presentation of interesting new research results and discussion about
them, leading to knowledge transfer and the generation of new ideas.

The conference will take place in the city of Kanazawa, a leading
tourist city  where 7 million tourists visit every year. It was a great
castle town ruled by an  influential leader from the 17th century to the
second half of the 19th century. Kanazawa has not suffered from any war
devastation or big natural disaster up to now. Therefore, Kanazawa
maintains rows of historical houses and inherits traditional handicrafts
and traditional performing arts.


Papers are invited on recent, substantial, original and unpublished
research on all aspects of computational linguistics and natural
language and speech processing. We welcome submissions both from
academia and the industry on any topic that is of interest to the NLP
community, encouraging research emphasizing multidisciplinary 
aspects of NLP and the interplay between linguistics, computer science
and application domains such as biomedicine, communication systems,
public services, and educational technology.


Paper submission deadline: 25 June 2012 (extended)
Notification of acceptance: 30 July 2012
Camera-ready copy and author registration: 14 August 2012

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers (12 pages maximum)
