Language Processing (IJCNLP 2013) October 14-18, 2013 Nagoya,
Japan Website: http://www.ijcnlp2013.org

The 6th International Joint Conference on Natural Language
Processing, organized by the Asian Federation of Natural Language
Processing, will be held in Nagoya, Japan during the period
October 14-18, 2013. The conference will cover a broad range of
technical areas related to the computational treatment of natural
language. IJCNLP 2013 will feature regular papers, short papers,
poster papers, demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops.

Topics IJCNLP 2013 invites submissions of papers reporting
original and unpublished research on all aspects of language
processing and computational linguistics, including, but not
limited to, the following: Phonology; Morphology; Syntax;
Semantics; Pragmatics; Discourse; Dialog; Corpora; Dictionaries;
Ontologies; Language resources for minority languages;
Statistical and machine learning approaches; Finite-State
Technology; Language models; POS tagging; Parsing; Semantic role
labeling; Word-sense disambiguation; Anaphora and coreference
resolution; Natural language generation; Speech processing;
Dialog systems; Machine translation; Information retrieval;
Information extraction; Named Entity Recognition; Text
summarization; Question answering; Text mining; Opinion mining
and sentiment analysis; NLP for medical applications; NLP for
educational applications; Text accessibility; Plagiarism
detection; Author identification; Spam filtering.

Important Dates May 17, 2013 (11:59pm Pacific Standard Time):
Regular paper/short paper/poster paper submission due May 24,
2013 (11:59pm Pacific Standard Time): Demo paper submission due
July 8, 2013: Regular paper/short paper/poster paper/demo paper
notification of acceptance due August 9, 2013: Camera-ready
versions due Main conference period: October 15-17, 2013

Submissions Submissions must describe substantial, original,
completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete
evaluation and analysis should be included. Submissions will be
judged on correctness, originality, technical strength,
significance, relevance to the conference, and interest to the
attendees. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three

There will be three categories of papers:

a. Regular papers: their length will be up to 8 pages plus 1
   additional page for references or appendices if
   needed/applicable; in the conference program these papers will
   have a slot of 25 minutes allocated (20 min presentation + 5
   minutes questions and answers)

b. Short papers: their length will be up to 6 pages plus 1
   additional page for references or appendices if
   needed/applicable; in the program these papers will have a
   slot of 20 minutes (15 min presentation + 5 minutes questions
   and answers)

c. Poster papers: their length will be up to 4 pages plus 1
   additional page for references or appendices if
   needed/applicable; in the program these will be presented at
   poster sessions.

All accepted papers will have equal status in the proceedings.

Authors will decide whether their papers are regular, short or
posters depending on their length. Authors will also decide to
which which area/track they are submitting (the START system will
be configured to allow selection of areas).

Paper submissions should follow the two-column format of IJCNLP,
conforming to the LaTeX or Microsoft Word style available on the
conference website and conforming to the instructions to authors
found there. Submissions must be electronic in PDF through the
START conference system at:


As the reviewing will be blind, the paper must not include the
authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references
that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed
(Smith, 1991) ...", must be avoided. Instead, use citations such
as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Papers that do
not conform to these requirements will be rejected without

Multiple-submission policy Papers that have been or will be
submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this
information at submission time. If IJCNLP 2013 accepts a paper,
authors must notify the program chairs by August 5, indicating
which meeting they choose for presentation of their work. IJCNLP
2013 cannot accept for publication or presentation work that will
be (or has been) published elsewhere.

Call for Demonstrations

The 6th International Joint Conference on Natural Language
Processing (IJCNLP 2013) October 14-18, 2013 Nagoya, Japan
Website: http://www.ijcnlp2013.org

The IJCNLP 2013 Demonstration Committee invites proposals for the
Demonstrations Program. We encourage both the submission of early
research prototypes and interesting mature systems. We also
welcome demo proposals related to submissions to the main
conference. Commercial sales and marketing activities however are
inappropriate for the Program.

1. Areas of Interest

Areas of interest include all topics related to theoretical and
applied computational linguistics, such as (but not limited to)
the topics listed for in the conference call for papers

The systems may be of the following kinds
- Natural Language Processing systems or system components
- Application systems using language technology components
- Software tools for computational linguistics research
- Software for demonstration or evaluation
- Development and annotation tools

2. Submission Format

Demo proposals consist of the following parts.
- An extended abstract of the technical content to be
  demonstrated, including title, authors, full contact
  information, references, and acknowledgements.
- A "script outline" of the demo presentation, including
  accompanying narrative, and either a Web address for accessing
  the demo or visual aids (e.g., screenshots, snapshots, or
- A detailed description of the hardware, software and internet
  service requirements expected to be provided by the local
  organizer. See Demo Equipment for more details.

Please use the IJCNLP submission format
(http://lang.cs.tut.ac.jp/ijcnlp2013/submission_format/) for
Microsoft Word and LaTeX for preparing your proposal. The entire
proposal should not be more than four pages.

3. Submissions Procedure

The deadline for proposals is May 24, 2013 (11:59pm Pacific
Standard Time). Submission will be electronic in PDF format
through the START conference system at:

https://www.softconf.com/ijcnlp2013/demos (Please do not send the
submission to Demo Co-Chairs by email.)

Each submission will be evaluated on the basis of their relevance
to computational linguistics, innovation, scientific
contribution, presentation, as well as potential logistical
constraints. Accepted submissions will be allocated maximum four
pages in the Companion Volume to the Proceedings of the

4. Demo Equipment

Each demo will be provided with an internet connection, two power
sockets (AC 100V, Max 500W for each socket). See
http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2225.html for more information
about the electricity in Japan.), a table and a poster board
(90cm x 180cm). PCs and other devices such as LCD panels must be
prepared and brought to the venue by demonstrators. Note that
projectors may not be feasible because of limitation of space and
