Call for Papers for EMNLP 2009
SIGDAT, the Association for Computational Linguistics' special interest group on linguistic data and corpus-based approaches to NLP, invites submissions to EMNLP 2009. The conference will be held on August 6-7, 2009, at the Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, immediately following ACL-IJCNLP-2009.
We are interested in papers from academia, government, and industry on all areas of traditional interest to the SIGDAT community and aligned fields, including but not limited to:
- Phonology/Morphology, Tagging and Chunking, Word Segmentation
- Syntax and Parsing
- Discourse, Dialogue, and Pragmatics
- Summarization and Generation
- Statistical and Machine Learning Methods
- Machine Translation
- Information Retrieval and Question Answering
- Information Extraction
- Sentiment Analysis, Opinion Mining and Text Classification
- Spoken Language Processing
- Text Mining and Natural Language Processing Applications
- Language Resources
- NLP for Web 2.0
Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings. Each paper may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content and one (1) extra page for references. Submissions should describe original, unpublished work. Please use the official ACL-IJCNLP 2009 style files. 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) ...”. Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. Separate identification information is required, and will be part of the web submission process.
Submission/reviewing will be electronic, managed by the START system. The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. To submit a paper, please follow this link.
A PDF file of the paper must be uploaded onto the system by the submission deadline. Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed.
Submissions presented at EMNLP should mainly contain new material that has not been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must disclose this information at submission time. Please list all other meetings where the paper has been submitted at the end of the abstract field on the submission site.
