GSCL 2009 # 2nd Call for Papers In 2009, the Conference of the German Society for Computational Linguistics and Language Technology is hosted by the Applied Computational Linguistics group in the Dept. of Linguistics at Potsdam University. The Meeting will consist of a main conference track as well as a series of workshops (see the list at the conference website). Date and Venue: Sep 30-Oct 2, 2009; University of Potsdam campus "Neues Palais" Website: http://www.ling.uni-potsdam.de/acl-lab/gscl09/ Main Conference Theme: Steps Toward Text Meaning - Aspects of Automatic Processing Contributions to any topic related to Computational Linguistics and Language Technology are invited, but we especially encourage submissions that are related to the main theme. "Steps toward text meaning" are research efforts that move beyond sentence processing and touch upon text meaning, on different levels of description. This includes - Deriving logical document structure - Coreference: resolution of pronouns, definite NPs, etc. - Thematic development - Illocutions, discourse purposes, and their role in text structure - Event structure and its temporal progression - Coherence relations and rhetorical structure - Text tiling,e.g. based on lexical cohesion. - Methods of semantic indexing of corpora - Named-entity recognition - Word-sense disambiguation - Textual entailment - Text generation: document planning, choice of referring expressions, etc. - Further applications operating with text meaning: - Classification of text type and genre - Information retrieval - Question-answering - Summarization etc. Submissions: The conference languages are German and English - papers can be submitted and talks given in either of the two languages. Three types of submission are invited: - Regular talk (with paper in conference proceedings): Submission of a full paper - Poster (with paper in conference proceedings): Submission of a short paper - System demo: Submission of an abstract Submissions must be in PDF format and have to be submitted via "easychair": https://www.easychair.org/login.cgi?conf=gscl09 The proceedings are being published by Gunter Narr Verlag (Tuebingen) as a book that will be ready for the conference.
