Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research on all aspects of natural language processing, including, but not limited to: * machine translation and multilingual processing * question answering, information extraction and information retrieval * natural language applications, tools and resources, system evaluation * natural language processing for web, knowledge-management systems, text mining * word segmentation, shallow parsing, tagging and chunking * parsing, generation and summarization * language modeling, statistical methods in natural language processing * machine learning for natural language * software architectures for natural language processing * syntax, semantics, grammars, morphology and phonology * discourse and dialogue, natural language interfaces, speech * lexical semantics and ontologies for NLP * linguistic, psychological and mathematical models of language * computational psycholinguistics (1-1) [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. (1-2)[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. (1-3) [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. (1-4) [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) ------------- (2)[Call for Proposals for Thematic Sessions] A Thematic Session provides a good occasion to focus peoples with the same special interest, so that they can meet each other at a specific time-space to discuss and exchange ideas. Due to the successful history of Thematic Session in ACL, the IJCNLP-04 would like to offer the opportunity again to let you organize your own Thematic Session within the main conference. You are encouraged to submit the proposal for Thematic Session, and to take this chance to promote a special area/topic/approach and to find out who are interested in that. The Thematic Session Proposals will be evaluated by the IJCNLP-04 program chairs, and those accepted ones will be announced in the Call for Papers announcement. Submitting papers to Thematic Sessions is the same as that for ordinary sessions of the main conference (In the submission page, we will have a check-box to let the author select the general session or a particular thematic session). The organizer of each Thematic Session needs to organize his/her own sub-committee for reviewing their assigned papers and to make recommendation. However, the IJCNLP-04 program committee reserves the right to make the final adjustment to keep the same quality standard across various general sessions and thematic sessions. How many time-slots (usually 3 to 4 papers per slot) would be assigned to a specific Thematic Session (or if it will be requested to merge with another session) will depend on the final number of submissions accepted. Please submit your proposals for Thematic Session to Dr. Keh Yeh Su (kysu_(on)_bdc.com.tw) ** before September 20, 2003. ** The proposal should indicate what kind of group would be interested in the proposed theme, and it should also predict the number of possible submissions. The list of your sub-committee-members that you would like to invite should also be provided with their affiliations. The notification of acceptance of Thematic Sessions is October 1, and you are requested to give a short description for Call-for-Paper on your Thematic Sessions before October 15. The paper submission deadline will be November 15 (which is the same as the general session). (3)[Call for Papers: Interactive Posters and Demos] IJCNLP-04 features special sessions for interactive posters and demonstrations. Poster/Demo presentations present original and significant work in progress, on-going research projects with novel ideas/applications, or late-breaking results that are best communicated in an interactive format. Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and should not exceed four (4) pages, including references. The detailed submission procedure, together with the style files, is provided in the submission site. ----------------- Important Dates Paper submission deadline: January 9, 2004 Notification of acceptance: January 30, 2004 Camera ready papers due: February 13, 2004 ----------------- (4)[CALL for Proposals for Satellite Events] We would like to receive proposals of satellite conferences, workshops, tutorials, meetings of SIGs, etc. that are to be collocated with IJCNLP-04. The program committee and the local organizers will provide required facilities. If you are willing to take initiatives in organizing satellite events, please submit a brief description of the satellite events to Prof. Choi, Key-Sun (kschoi_(on)_cs.kaist.ac.kr) The submission should reach no later than September 20, 2003. ---------------- (5) Miscellaneous Announcements (5-1) The proceedings of IJCNLP will be archived in the ACL anthology site as well as the archive site of the AFNLP. (5-2) Three associations, ACL, A-NLP, and CIPSC express their intentions to support IJCNLP-04 financially. We welcome other associations to offer their supports. ----------- (6) Organization of IJCNLP-04 Honorary Chair Nagao, Makoto (Kyoto University, Kyoto) Conference Co-chairs Ni, Guangnan (Chinese Academy of Engineering, Beijing) Tsou, Benjamin K.
