**** NAACL HLT 2007 Preliminary Call for Papers **** Human Language Technologies: The Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics April 22-28, 2007, Rochester, New York http://www.cs.rochester.edu/meetings/hlt-naacl07 General Conference Chair: Candace Sidner (Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories) Program Co-Chairs: Tanja Schultz (Carnegie Mellon University) Matthew Stone (Rutgers University) ChengXiang Zhai (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) Local Arrangements: James Allen, Len Schubert, and Dan Gildea (University of Rochester) NAACL HLT 2007 continues the tradition of the combined Human Language Technology Conferences (HLT) and North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL) Annual Meetings begun in 2003. The conference covers a broad spectrum of disciplines working towards enabling intelligent systems to interact with humans using natural language, and towards enhancing human-human communication through services such as speech recognition, automatic translation, information retrieval, text summarization, and information extraction. NAACL HLT 2007 will feature full papers, late-breaking (short) papers, demonstrations, and a doctoral consortium, as well as pre- and post-conference tutorials and workshops. The conference is organized by the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL), who is advised by a board representing the IR and speech communities and North American HLT funding agencies. Topics of Interest: The conference invites the submission of papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research in disciplines that could impact human language processing systems, with a special focus on theories and methods that enable compelling combinations of human language technologies (e.g., Speech with Information Retrieval, Machine Translation with Speech, Question Answering with Natural Language Processing, etc.). Topics of interest include but are not limited to: - Computational analysis of language Phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, dialogue, discourse, style - Speech processing, including: Speech recognition and speech generation Rich transcription: automatic annotation of information structure and sources in speech - Information retrieval, text classification, and information filtering/recommendation Text data mining, information extraction, text summarization, and question answering - Multimodal representations and processing - Statistical and learning techniques for language, including Corpus-based language modeling Lexical and knowledge acquisition - Development of language resources, including Lexicons and ontologies Treebanks, proposition banks, and frame banks - Language generation and text planning - Multilingual processing, including Machine translation of speech and text Cross-language information retrieval Multi-lingual speech recognition and language identification - Intelligent systems for natural language interaction, including Conversational systems for collaboration, tutoring and behavioral intervention Embodied conversational agents, virtual humans and human-robot conversation Language-enhanced platforms for interactive narrative and digital entertainment - Evaluation, including Glass-box evaluation of HLT systems and system components Black-box evaluation of HLT systems in application settings Submission information: Full papers: Submissions must describe original, completed, unpublished work and should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings without exceeding eight pages, including references. Each submission will be judged chiefly on the strength of the argument it provides in support of its contribution, through e.g. experimental evaluation, theoretical analysis, or critical engagement with HLT. Reviewing will be double-blind; each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Late-breaking (short) papers: Submissions describing original, unpublished work can be submitted as short papers with a later deadline. The submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings without exceeding four pages, including references. Reviewing will be double-blind; each submission will be reviewed by at least two program committee members. Short paper submissions may be accepted for oral presentation in plenary OR for presentation in a poster session. Demonstration, doctoral consortium, tutorial, and workshop proposals: Submission instructions will be available later. Multiple-submission policy: Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this information at submission time. In the event of multiple acceptances, authors must notify the program chairs by January 5, 2007, indicating which meeting they choose for presentation of their work. HLT-NAACL 2007 cannot accept for publication work that will be (or has been) published elsewhere. **** Important Dates: Oct 13, 2006 Full paper submissions due Dec 22, 2006 Full paper notification of acceptance Jan 18, 2007 Short paper submissions due Feb 22, 2007 Short Paper notification of acceptance Mar 5, 2007 Camera-ready full/short papers due Apr 22-28, 2007 Conference Please visit http://www.cs.rochester.edu/meetings/hlt-naacl07 for more information. _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
