======================================================================= CALL FOR PAPERS IJCNLP-04 Thematic Session on Natural Language Technologies in Mobile Information Retrieval and Text Processing User Interfaces ======================================================================= TOPICS One of the strongest impacts in recent information technology is the way mobility has changed computer applications. The rapid rate of handphone adoption, the ubiquitous PDA, and the low cost of wireless adoption has created new problems, new challenges, and new opportunities to researchers in many disciplines. One common thread through all these applications is the necessity for information retrieval and mobile text processing in one form or another. Another characteristic is the limited size of mobile devices and the consequent need for sophisticated methods of text input and output. Other applications with a similar need of language technology support under challenging conditions include e.g. communication aids and authoring tools. The use of NLP plays an integral part in creating better user interfaces, more efficient text input technologies, authoring aids, summarization and analysis of output for precise display, and greater understanding in the interactive dialogue between user and applications working on text. We invite researchers focusing on - text input and output technologies, - language modeling, - summarization, - mobile database & information retrieval and management, - speech and dialogue IR applications on mobile devices, and HCI researchers on text retrieval and processing systems to explore user oriented and theoretical limits and characteristics of NLP for front-end and back-end solutions within the context of text retrieval and processing user interfaces. REQUIREMENTS Papers should describe original work. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees. A paper accepted for presentation at the IJCNLP-04 cannot be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or workshops must indicate this on the title page, as must papers that contain significant overlap with previously published work. SUBMISSION INFORMATION Submissions should follow a two-column format and should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly recommend the use of IJCNLP-04 LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style files tailored for IJCNLP-04. The files and a description of the format are available in the submission site. SUBMISSION SITE ht tp://www-tsujii.is.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp/ijc-nlp04/submission.html Note that full paper submissions are restricted to 8 pages. Note also that 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 (Kim, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Kim, 1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to the requirements above are subject to be rejected without review. SUBMISSION PROCEDURE All papers must be submitted electronically according to the instructions in the submission site. The papers must be submitted no later than 12 p.m. Japan Standard Time November 15, 2003. Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed (Note that we no longer require early registration for papers.) Please consult the submission site in which instructions for electronic submission are provided. Questions regarding the submission process should be directed to ijc-nlp04-submissi on@is.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp. IMPORTANT DATES Paper submission deadline: November 15, 2003 Notification of acceptance: December 23, 2003 Camera ready papers due: January 24, 2004 Main conference: March 22-24, 2004 (Monday-Wednesday) THEMATIC SESSION ORGANISERS Michael Kuehn University of Koblenz-Landau, Koblenz Mun-Kew Leong Institute for Infocomm Research, Singapore Kumiko Tanaka-Ishii University of Tokyo, Tokyo THEMATIC SESSION PROGRAMME COMMITTEE Hsin-Hsi Chen National Taiwan University, Taipei Jean-Pierre Chevallet CNRS, Grenoble Fabio Crestani University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Yoshihiko Hayashi NTT Cyberspace Labs, Yokosuka Min Yen Kan National University of Singapore, Singapore Nils Klarlund Clairgrove LLC, New Jersey Gary Geunbae Lee POSTECH, Pohang Mu Li Microsoft Research Asia, Beijing Kathleen McCoy University of Delaware, Newark Sung Hyon Myaeng ICU, Daejeon Hwee Tou Ng National University of Singapore, Singapore Manabu Okumura Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo ----------------------------------------------------------------------- -- Michael Kuehn http://www.uni-koblenz.de /%7Ekuehn/ Fachbereich Informatik kuehn_(on)_uni-koblenz.de Universitaet Koblenz-Landau +49 (0)261 287-2613 Postfach 201 602, 56016 Koblenz, Germany Room A 220
