19th Nordic Conference on Computational Linguistics (NoDaLiDa)
Wednesday, May 22, to Friday, May 24, 2013
University of Oslo, Norway
FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
The Northern European Association for Language Technology (NEALT) invites submissions to its bi-annual conference on human language and speech technologies: NoDaLiDa 2013 will be held between May 22 and May 24, 2013, on the campus of the University of Oslo (Norway). Please mark your calendars.
As part of the main conference, there will be three invited keynotes:
+ Ron Kaplan, Nuance Communications and Stanford University, USA + Caroline Sporleder, University of Trier, Germany + Anders S°gaard, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Preceding the main conference, on Wednesday, May 22, there will be five topical workshops:
+ Second Workshop on NLP for Computer-Assisted Language Learning + Workshop on Computational Historical Linguistics + Workshop on Human Language Technology and Language Changes + Workshop on Lexical Semantic Resources for NLP + Workshop on Nordic Language Research Infrastructure + Workshop on Human Language Technology and Language Changes
Workshops will issue individual calls for papers in mid-January and will have a closing date for submissions in mid-March.
NoDaLiDa addresses /all/ aspects of speech recognition and synthesis, natural language processing, and computational linguistics?including work in closely related neighbouring disciplines (such as, for example, linguistics or psychology) that is sufficiently formalized or applied to bear relevance to speech and language technologies.
We invite paper submissions in three distinct tracks:
+ regular papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research,
including empirical evaluation results, where appropriate; + short papers on smaller, focused contributions, work in progress,
negative results, surveys, or opinion pieces; and + student papers on completed or ongoing work, where at least the first
author is a Master or PhD student.
There will be a fourth track for system demonstrations, with a separate call for papers and submission deadline in the spring of 2013.
Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be included in the NoDaLiDa 2013 proceedings, which is published as part of the NEALT Proceedings Series by Link÷ping University Electronic Press.
+ Monday, January 21, 2013: Submission of Papers + Monday, March 11, 2013: Notification of Acceptance + Monday, April 15, 2013: Camera-Ready Manuscripts + Wednesday, May 22, 2013: Pre-Conference Workshops + Thursday & Friday, May 23 & 24, 2013: Main Conference
All submissions must follow the NoDaLiDa 2013 style files, which are available for LaTeX (preferred), Libre Office, or MS Word and can be retrieved from the following download site:
Submissions must be anonymous, i.e. not reveal author(s) on the title page or through self-references. Papers must be submitted digitally, in PDF, and uploaded through the on-line conference system. Paper submissions that violate either of these requirements will be returned without review.
The page limits for submissions are: up to fourteen pages for regular papers, up to eight pages for short papers, and up to ten pages for student papers. For all three submission types, these page limits do /not/ include additional pages with bibliographic references. Please note that NoDaLiDa 2013 adapts a single-column, smaller page format, optimized for on-screen reading. In terms of actual word counts, the above page numbers correspond to approximately eight, four, and six pages, respectively, in a ?classic?, two-column conference proceedings layout.
Submissions to the conference must be uploaded electronically, obeying the above requirements, and no later than (end of day, world-wide):
+ Monday, January 21, 2013.
NoDaLiDa 2013 utilizes the EasyChair conference management system for submission, reviewing, and preparation of proceedings. Submission for the main conference is now open at:
Reviewing of submissions and selection of the conference programme will be managed by the NoDaLiDa 2013 Programme Committee. All submissions will receive three double-blind reviews by experts in the field.
+ Lars Ahrenberg, Link÷ping University, Sweden + Heiki-Jaan Kaalep, University of Tartu, Estonia + Mikko Kurimo, Aalto University, Finland + Stephan Oepen (Programme Chair), University of Oslo, Norway + Eva Pettersson, Uppsala University, Sweden + Bolette Sandford Pedersen, University of Copenhagen, Denmark + Victoria RosÚn, University of Bergen, Norway
