Call For Papers Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Web-based technologies

held in conjunction with IBERAMIA 2010

November 1-5, 2010

Bahía Blanca, Argentina


Submissions are invited for papers, posters and demonstrations presenting high quality, previously unpublished research on all areas of computational linguistics and web-based technologies. Contributions may present results from completed as well as ongoing research, with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives. Submissions concerning languages in the Americas (including Portuguese and Spanish) are particularly welcome.


The workshop aims at offering an insight into current research and developments within the interdisciplinary field of natural language processing, including those topics where Computational Linguistics and Web-based technologies intersect. Both areas are inherently multidisciplinary and working on related problems. The workshop is intended to foster collaboration in information and language technologies.

This workshop is also conceived to provide a forum for researchers at all levels and from heterogeneous backgrounds to present their work within this field of research. Moreover, it is intended to promote the area of Computational Linguistics in Argentina in particular and in Latin America in general, and to establish and consolidate connections between communities in the Iberoamerican area.

Submissions should describe original and unpublished research or innovative industrial applications. Topics for submissions include, but are not limited to:

* Spoken Language

* Language Generation

* Phonetics and Phonology

* Syntax and Morphology

* Lexicology and Lexicography

* Formal and Computational Semantics

* Pragmatics and Discourse

* Corpus Linguistics

* Psycholinguistics

* Linguistic Theories applied to NLP

* Statistical and Corpus-Based NLP

* Text Mining

* Machine Translation and Summarization

* Information Extraction

* Information Retrieval

* Classification and Clustering

* Question Answering

* Opinion Mining

* Human-Computer Interaction

* Systems Construction and Evaluation

* Clustering the blogosphere

* Blog summarization

* Subjectivity in texts

* Sentiment analysis

* Automatic humour recognition

* Folksonomies and social tagging

* Clustering and visualization of tag clouds

* Plagiarism detection of ideas

* Opinion analysis

* Sources of opinions and authorship attribution

* Product analysis and text-based market analysis

* Enterprise 2.0 search

* Web advisors

We welcome three types of contributions:

* Full papers for oral presentation (10 pages), presenting

substantial, original and completed research work.

* Short papers for presentation as posters (6 pages), with a small,

focused contribution, work in progress, a negative result or an

opinion piece.

* Student research papers for presentation at the Student Session (10

pages), authored exclusively by students.

Short papers/posters can be combined with a system demonstration.

The only accepted format for submitting papers is Adobe PDF. The format should follow the Springer instructions available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

As the review process will be double-blind, your submission must not include the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s). Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Pérez, 2003) ...", must be avoided. Instead, citations such as "Pérez (2003) previously showed ...", must be used.

The organizers plan to publish selected high quality submissions to the workshop as a special issue of a reputed scientific journal.


Deadline for paper submission: July 1, 2010 Notification of acceptance: August 1, 2010 Deadline for camera-ready papers: August 11, 2010 IBERAMIA 2010: November 5-10, 2010
