Workshop on "Named Entity Recognition for Natural Language Processing Applications" In Conjunction with the First International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (IJCNLP-04) *** SUBMISSION DEADLINE NOW EXTENDED TO 16 JANUARY 2004 *** Chair: Benjamin Tsou (City University of Hong Kong) Call for Papers Named Entities (NEs) occupy a considerable proportion in natural language and have remained an important area in natural language processing (NLP). The recognition of proper names as unknown words has long been an issue in word segmentation and part-of-speech tagging, especially for non-alphabetic Asian languages and interlingual NLP involving these languages. Named entities constitute significant pieces of data in information extraction. Proper transliteration of named entities, especially proper names, is critical for the intelligibility and accuracy of machine translation output. This workshop aims at bringing researchers together to discuss the issues and advances in NE recognition and extraction, and how NE could be handled most cost-effectively in a variety of NLP applications. Papers are invited for original and unpublished research on all aspects of NE recognition and extraction, including but not limited to: - Symbolic and statistical models for NE recognition - NE recognition systems - Translation of NEs across multiple languages - Resources (lexicons, grammars) for NE extraction - NE recognition as a subtask in NLP applications - Evaluation of NE processing in NLP applications Important Dates Submission Deadline: 16 January 2004 *** Extended *** Notification of Acceptance: 31 January 2004 Camera-Ready Paper Due: 10 February 2004 Workshop Date: 26 March 2004 Submission Method Papers should be written in English and may not exceed 7 pages (including references, and using 11pt or 12pt for the main text). Simultaneous submission to other conferences or workshops must be clearly indicated on the identification page (see below). Nevertheless, a paper accepted for presentation in this workshop cannot be presented or have been presented in any other meeting with publicly published available proceedings. We strongly recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or MS-Word document template for IJCNLP-04. These style files can be downloaded from ht tp://www-tsujii.is.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp/ijc-nlp04/submission.html. As reviewing will be blind, self-references that reveal the author's identity (e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) .") should be avoided in the submission. Instead, use references like "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) .". Please include, on a separate identification page, the following information: title, name(s) of author(s), affiliation(s), email address(es), up to 5 keywords, whether the paper is under consideration for other conferences, and a short summary of the paper. Please submit your paper electronically to rlolivia_(on)_cityu.edu.hk by 16 January 2004. Acceptable file formats are Portable Document Format (.pdf), PostScript (.ps), and MS Word (.doc), with all non-ASCII fonts embedded.
