========================================================================= First Call for Papers

International Conference on Asian Language Processing 2012 (IALP 2012) Hanoi, Vietnam, Nov 13-15, 2012 http://www.mica.edu.vn/IALP-2012 Paper Submission deadline: Jul 1,2012 ==========================================================================

The International Conference on Asian Language Processing (IALP) is a series of conferences with unique focus on Asian Language Processing. The conference aims to advance the science and technology of all the aspects of Asian Language Processing by providing a forum for researchers in the different fields of language study all over the world to meet. The first meeting of the series was held in Singapore in 1986 and was called the "International Conference on Chinese Computing (ICCC)" then. This meeting initiated the study of Chinese and oriental languages processing in Singapore and resulted in the formation of COLIPS in Singapore in 1988, as well as the publication of the journal "Communications of COLIPS" in 1991, which is known as "International Journal on Asian Language Processing" today.

Over the years, IALP has developed into one of important anaual events on nature language processing in Asia. IALP 2008 was held in Chiang Mai University, Thailand and the proceedings were indexed by ISTP/ISI. IALP 2009 was held in Singapore and was co-organized by COLIPS and IEEE Singapore Computer Chapter. IALP 2010 was held in Harbin and was co-organized by COLIPS and IEEE Singapore Computer Chapter, Chinese Information Processing Society of China and Heilongjiang Institute of Technology (HIT). IALP 2011 was held in Penang, Malaisia and jointly organized by Chinese and Oriental Languages Information Processing Society (COLIPS) of Singapore, IEEE Singapore Computer Chapter, and Universiti Sains Malaysia. The proceedings of IALP 2009,2010 and 2011 were published by CPS (Conference Publication Services) and submitted for indexing in EI, ISTP/ISI and Current Contents on Diskette.

This year, the International Conference on Asian Language Processing 2012 (IALP 2012) will be jointly organized by Chinese and Oriental Languages Information Processing Society (COLIPS) of Singapore, IEEE Vietnam Computer Chapter, and Hanoi University of Science and Technology (and MICA Institute). The conference will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam on Nov 13-15, 2012. The 2012 edition (IALP 2012) will focus on under-resourced languages studies. We will continue to work with CPS to publish the conference proceesings. They will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library and submitted for indexing in INSPEC, EI, ISTP/ISI and Current Contents on Diskette.

Hanoi (Vietnamese: H Noi, "River Interior") is the capital and second-largest city of Vietnam. As the capital of Vietnam for almost a thousand years. Hanoi hosts more cultural sites than any city in Vietnam, including over 600 pagodas and temples.Hanoi is is the social, cultural and economic center of the country.The Old Quarter, near Hoan Kiem lake, has the original street layout and architecture of old Hanoi. At the beginning of the 20th century the city consisted of only about 36 streets, most of which are now part of the old quarter. Each street then had merchants and households specialized in a particular trade, such as silk traders, jewellery, etc. The street names nowadays still reflect these specializations, although few of them remain exclusively in their original commerce. The area is famous for its small artisans and merchants, including many silk shops. Local cuisine specialties as well as several clubs and bars can be found here also. A night market (near ong Xun market) in the heart of the district opens for business every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening with a variety of clothing, souvenirs and food.

We welcome you to Vietnam to experience the nature, history, and cultural in one of best countries in South-East Asia.


Paper submissions are invited on substantial, original and unpublished research in all aspects of Asian Language Processing, including, but not limited to:

- Under-resourced language studies - Input and output of large character sets of Asian languages - Typesetting and font designs of Asian languages - Asian character encoding and compression - Multimodal representations and processing - Voice input and output - Phonology and morphology - Lexical semantics and word sense - Grammars, syntax, semantics and discourse - Word segmentation, chunking, tagging and syntactic parsing - Word sense disambiguation, semantic role labeling and semantic parsing - Discourse analysis - Language, linguistic and speech resource development - Evaluation methods and user studies - Machine learning for natural language - Text analysis, understanding, summarization and generation - Text mining and information extraction, summarization and retrieval - Text entailment and paraphrasing - Text Sentiment analysis, opinion mining and question answering - Machine translation and multilingual processing - Linguistic, psychological and mathematical models of language, computational psycholinguistics, computational linguistics and mathematical linguistics - Language modeling, statistical methods in natural language processing and speech processing - Spoken language processing, understanding, generation and translation - Rich transcription and spoken information retrieval - Speech recognition and synthesis - Natural language applications, tools and resources, system evaluation - Asian language learning, teaching and computer-aided language learning - NLP in vertical domains, such as biomedical, chemical and legal text - NLP on noisy unstructured text, such as email, blogs, and SMS - Special hardware and software for Asian language computing


Submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees. Each submission will be reviewed by three program committee members. Accepted papers will be presented in one of the oral sessions or poster sessions as determined by the program committee. As the reviewing will be blind, manuscripts must not include the authors' names and affiliations. Authors should ensure that their identities are not revealed in any way in the paper. Self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.

All submissions must be electronic and in Portable Document Format (PDF) only. Paper submissions should follow the IEEE Proceedings' two-column format without exceeding four (4) pages including references. We strongly recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word style files according to IEEE Proceedings' format. Submissions must conform to the official style guidelines.

The official language of the conference is English. Papers submitted should be written in English.

Papers may be submitted until July 1, 2012, in PDF format via the START system: https://www.softconf.com/d/ialp2012/
