Due to popular demand, the paper submission deadline for the 3rd workshop on:

Balto-Slavconic Natural Language Processing


to be held in conjunction with TSD 2011 (http://www.kiv.zcu.cz/tsd2011/) in Plzeň (Czech Republic) on 5th September 2011 has been extended to:

15th April 2011

This workshop is a follow-up to the successful first BSNLP 2007 workshop held in conjunction with the ACL 2007 conference in Prague, and the second BSNLP 2009 workshop held in conjunction with the IIS 2009 (Intelligent Information Systems) in Cracow.

AREAS OF INTEREST include, but are not limited to the specific challenges for Balto-Slavonic NLP in the context of:

- Text segmentation - Morphological analysis - Morphology models - Morpho-syntactic disambiguation - Named-entity recognition - Named-entity dissambiguation - Named-entity lemmatisation - Name variant recognition and merging - Term and keyword extraction - Syntactic parsing and chunking - Co-reference resolution - Word sense disambiguation - Corpus-based knowledge acquisition - Parsing - Information extraction - Question answering - Machine translation - Text summarisation - Text classification - Information retrieval - Text understanding - Linguistic processing in search engines - Multilingual frameworks applied to these languages - Tools and resources (freely available for research purposes will be preferred) - Experience with, and evaluation of, linguistic data and processing resources - Comparative evaluation between languages - Encoding standards and formats

In particular, we would strongly encourage submissions describing systems, resources or solutions that are made available to the wider public, as this would help to promote computational linguistics applications for these languages.


We expect papers up to 6 pages in the LNCS style.

The papers should describe original unpublished work and should indicate the state of completion of the reported results. In particular, an overlap with previously published work should be clearly mentioned. The authors should indicate in the abstract of their submission if the paper has been submitted elsewhere.

Submissions will be judged on correctness, novelty, technical strength, clarity of presentation, usability, and significance/relevance to the workshop. Submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the Program Committee.

The reviewing will be blind. Therefore, the paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-citations and other references that could reveal the author's identity should be avoided.

The final papers are to be prepared using LaTeX in the LNCS style (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0). Please download the zipped archive with files needed to process your document. Please follow all the recommendations given in the example.

Submission will be electronic. The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. Papers must be submitted using the submission webpage.


Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the LNCS volume together with the TSD'2011 proceedings. They will be available during the workshop.
