Apologies for cross-posting Please find below the call for papers for the 11th SIGMORPHON workshop. We are very keen to get theoretical as well as computational phonologists and morphologists involved, so please consider submitting a paper! ----------------------------------------------------------------- Call for Papers ACL 2010 Uppsala, Sweden July 15 Eleventh Meeting of the ACL Special Interest Group in Computational Morphology, Phonology and Phonetics http://phonology.cogsci.udel.edu/sigmorphon2010/ The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in applying computational techniques to problems in morphology, phonology, and phonetics. Papers will be on substantial, original, and unpublished research on these topics, potentially including strong work in progress. Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to) the following as they relate to the areas of the workshop: * Unsupervised, semi-supervised or machine learning of linguistic knowledge * New formalisms, computational treatments, or probabilistic models of existing linguistic formalisms * Models of psycholinguistic, experimental results * Models of historical sound change * Morpheme identification and word segmentation * Finite-state methods * Corpus linguistics * Machine transliteration and back-transliteration * Speech technologies relating to phonetics or phonology * Speech science (both production and comprehension) * Analysis or exploitation of multilingual, multi-dialectal, or diachronic data * Integration of morphology, phonology, or phonetics with other NLP tasks * Tools and resources One of the missions of SIGMORPHON is to encourage interaction between work in computational linguistics and work in theoretical phonetics, phonology and morphology, and to ensure that each of these fields profits from the interaction. Our recent meetings have been successful in this regard, and we hope to see this continue in 2010. Many mainstream linguists studying phonetics, phonology and morphology are employing computational tools and models that are of considerable interest to computational linguists. Similarly, models and tools developed by and for computational linguists may be of interest to theoretical linguists working in these areas. This workshop provides a forum for these researchers to interact and become exposed to each others' ideas and research. This workshop will be the eleventh meeting of SIGMORPHON (formerly called SIGPHON). We will hold a full-day workshop consisting of approximately 12 half-hour presentations. The workshop will be held on July 15, immediately after the ACL 2010 meetings at Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden. The workshop website is: http://phonology.cogsci.udel.edu/sigmorphon2010/ Important Dates --------------- * Submission Deadline: April 25, 2010, 23:59 EDT * Notification: May 19, 2010 * Camera-ready deadline: June 2, 2010 * Workshop: July 15 or 16, 2010 Paper Submission ---------------- Content: Papers should be original, topical, and clear. Completed work is preferable to intended work, but in any event the paper should clearly indicate the state of completion of the reported results. Authors are encouraged to study the actual form used by reviewers (http://phonology.cogsci.udel.edu/sigmorphon2010/review-form.html) to assess papers. Submission Format: The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings, and should not exceed eight (8) pages. One additional page is allowed for the References section. Thus, your PDF file may be 9 pages. However, all material other than the bibliography must fall within the first 8 pages! We strongly recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word document template that are available on the ACL conference web site (http://acl2010.org/authors.html). We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles, including font size restrictions. Anonymous Review: Reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, 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 (1991) previously showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. Conflicts of Interest: Authors should mark on the submission page any program committee member with whom they have a conflict of interest, such as a recent collaborator, a recent colleague at the same institution, or a close personal friend. Double Submitting: Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this information on the START online submission page. Papers may not be submitted to SIGMORPHON 2010 if they are currently or will be submitted to other meetings or publications and that other meeting or publication prohibits multiple submission. If SIGMORPHON 2010 accepts a paper, authors must notify the program chairs *immediately* indicating which meeting they choose for presentation of their work. SIGMORPHON 2010 cannot accept for publication or presentation work that will be (or has been) published elsewhere. Submission Procedure: Authors must submit papers online here: https://www.softconf.com/acl2010/SIGMORPHON The submission deadline is Sunday April 25, 2010 23:59 EDT. Papers submitted after the deadline will not be reviewed. Organizers ---------- Jeffrey Heinz (University of Delaware) Lynne Cahill (University of Brighton) Richard Wicentowski (Swarthmore College) Program Committee ----------------- This year's program committee consists of the following individuals: * Adam Albright, MIT * Jason Eisner, Johns Hopkins University * Mark Ellison, University of Western Australia * Sharon Goldwater, University of Edinburgh * Grzegorz Kondrak, University of Alberta * Kimmo Koskenniemi, University of Helskinki * Karen Livescu, Toyota Technological Institute and University of Chicago * Mike Maxwell, University of Maryland * Jason Riggle, University of Chicago * Shuly Wintner, University of Haifa The program chairs may invite additional reviewers as necessary to obtain relevant expertise and avoid conflicts of interest. _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_mailman.let.uu.nl http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
