   20th Nordic Conference on Computational Linguistics (NoDaLiDa)

             Monday, May 11, to Wednesday, May 13, 2015
    Institute of the Lithuanian Language, Vilnius, Lithuania



The Northern European Association for Language Technology (NEALT)
invites submissions to its bi-annual conference on human language and
speech technologies.  NoDaLiDa 2015 will be held between May 11 and May
13, 2015, on the campus of the University of Vilnius, Lithuania.  Please
mark your calendars.


As part of the main conference, there will be three invited keynotes:
+Kevin Knight, ISI, University of Southern California, USA
+Catherine Pelachaud, CNRS, TELECOM Paris Tech, France
+Sebastian Riedel, University College London, UK

Preceding the main conference, on Monday, May 11, there will be four
topical workshops:

+ 4th workshop on NLP for Computer Assisted Language Learning (NLP4CALL)
+ Semantic resources and semantic annotation for Natural Language Processing and the Digital Humanities
+ Innovative Corpus Query and Visualization Tools
+ Constraint Grammar - Methods, Tools and Applications

Workshops will issue individual call for papers in mid-January and will
have a closing date for submissions in 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+ regular papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research,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 March 23, 2015.

Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be included in
the NoDaLiDa 2015 proceedings, which is published as part of the NEALT
Proceedings Series by Linköping University Electronic Press. 
The proceedings will be publicly available in the ACL Anthology:
