CALL FOR PAPERS Submissions due on January 9, 2001 HLT 2001, Human Language Technology Confererence March 18-21, 2001 San Diego, California http://hlt2001.org Human Language Technology brings together researchers in a broad spectrum of fields, all of which are working toward enabling computers to interact with humans using natural language capabilities. The HLT Conference is a forum for researchers in those fields to present high-quality, cutting-edge work, and to exchange ideas and explore directions for further research. The Conference will also foster opportunities for international collaboration within language technology. The Conference and Program Chairs invite submissions from researchers in computer science, linguistics, engineering, psychology, etc., who are exploring methods for enabling better use of language technology. Further information is available at the Conference web site, http://hlt2001.org. The Conference will span four days, running from Sunday afternoon through mid-day Wednesday. It will include peer-reviewed research presentations, posters, demonstrations, panel sessions, and time for discussion. Sessions will cover not only research, but also developments in related government funding programs. HLT submissions should be in areas such as the following: Computational linguistics, Computational support for learning, Cross-language and multilingual systems, Dialogue interaction, Formal methods for NLP, HLT architectures, HLT evaluation, HLT resource development, HLT standards, Human-computer interaction, Information Retrieval, Information extraction, Machine translation, Question answering, Rule-based natural language processing, Speech and language applications, Speech generation, Speech recognition, Speech synthesis, Statistical NLP, and Summarization. Space at the Conference is restricted. The presenting author of accepted papers, posters, and demonstrations is automatically invited. Individuals or groups interested in attending otherwise should see the Conference web site for application information. INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSIONS Submissions will be electronic, in PostScript or PDF. Complete submission information will be available at http://hlt2001.org. HLT submissions are due on or before January 9, 2001. Submissions will be 3-4 page extended abstracts (not to exceed 1500 words) of the proposed presentation and must include enough information for the reviewers to judge the applicability and novelty of the work. It is expected that the Conference will include diverse areas within HLT and preference will be given to papers that will appeal to multiple fields. Submissions should indicate the preferred and acceptable presentation methods: paper, poster, or demonstration. The Program Committee will select among those presentation methods for accepted submissions based on what fits the program best. In order to encourage late-breaking research results, the submission deadline for HLT 2001 is very close to the Conference. There is insufficient time to produce a bound proceedings for the Conference. Instead, all accepted papers, posters, and demonstrations will have their extended abstracts (revised based on reviewer comments) published in notebook proceedings that will be available at the Conference. After the Conference, authors will have an opportunity to revise their papers for the final bound proceedings.
