   19th Nordic Conference on Computational Linguistics (NoDaLiDa)

             Wednesday, May 22, to Friday, May 24, 2013
                     University of Oslo, Norway



The Northern European Association for Language Technology (NEALT)
invites submissions to its bi-annual conference on human language and
speech technologies: NoDaLiDa 2013 will be held between May 22 and May
24, 2013, on the campus of the University of Oslo (Norway).  Please
mark your calendars.


As part of the main conference, there will be three invited keynotes:

+ Ron Kaplan, Nuance Communications and Stanford University, USA
+ Caroline Sporleder, University of Trier, Germany
+ Anders Søgaard, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Preceding the main conference, on Wednesday, May 22, there will be five
topical workshops:

+ Second Workshop on NLP for Computer-Assisted Language Learning
+ Workshop on Computational Historical Linguistics
+ Workshop on Human Language Technology and Language Changes
+ Workshop on Lexical Semantic Resources for NLP
+ Workshop on Nordic Language Research Infrastructure
+ Workshop on Human Language Technology and Language Changes

Workshops will issue individual call for papers in mid-January and will
have a closing date for submissions in mid-March.


NoDaLiDa addresses /all/ aspects of speech recognition and synthesis,
natural language processing, and computational linguistics—including
work in closely related neighbouring disciplines (such as, for example,
linguistics or psychology) that is sufficiently formalized or applied
to bear relevance to speech and language technologies.

We invite paper submissions in three distinct tracks:

+ regular papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research,
  including empirical evaluation results, where appropriate;
+ short papers on smaller, focused contributions, work in progress,
  negative results, surveys, or opinion pieces; and
+ student papers on completed or ongoing work, where at least the first
  author is a Master or PhD student.

There will be a fourth track for system demonstrations, with a separate
call for papers and submission deadline in the spring of 2013.

Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be included in
the NoDaLiDa 2013 proceedings, which is published as part of the NEALT
Proceedings Series by Linköping University Electronic Press.


+ Monday, January 28, 2013: Submission of Papers
+ Monday, March 11, 2013: Notification of Acceptance
+ Monday, April 15, 2013: Camera-Ready Manuscripts
+ Wednesday, May 22, 2013: Pre-Conference Workshops

All submissions must follow the NoDaLiDa 2013 style files, which are
available for LaTeX (preferred), Libre Office, or MS Word and can be
retrieved from the following address:


Submissions must be anonymous, i.e. not reveal author(s) on the title
page or through self-references.  Papers must be submitted digitally,
in PDF, and uploaded through the on-line conference system.  Paper
submissions that violate either of these requirements will be returned
without review.

The page limits for submissions are: up to fourteen pages for regular
papers, up to eight pages for short papers, and up to ten pages for
student papers.  For all three submission types, these page limits do
/not/ include additional pages with bibliographic references.  Please
note that NoDaLiDa 2013 adapts a single-column, smaller page format,
optimized for on-screen reading.  In terms of actual word counts, the
above page numbers correspond to approximately eight, four, and six
pages, respectively, in a ‘classic’, two-column conference proceedings


Submissions to the conference must be uploaded electronically, obeying
the above requirements and no later than (end of day, world-wide):

+ Monday, January 28, 2013.

NoDaLiDa 2013 utilizes the EasyChair conference management system for
submission, reviewing, and preparation of proceedings.  Submission for
the conference is now open at:



Reviewing of submissions and selection of the conference programme will
be managed by the NoDaLiDa 2013 Programme Committee.  All submissions
will receive three double-blind reviews by experts in the field.
