> The web has become increasingly popular as a source of linguistic data,
> not only within the NLP community, but also with lexicographers and
> linguists. Accordingly, web corpora continue to gain importance, given
> their size and diversity in terms of genres/text types. However, a number
> of issues in web corpus construction still need much research, ranging
> from questions of corpus design to more-technical aspects of efficient
> construction of large corpora. Similarly, the systematic evaluation of web
> corpora, for example in the form of task-based comparisons to traditional
> corpora, has only lately shifted into focus.

> For a decade now, the ACL SIGWAC, and especially the highly successful Web
> as Corpus (WAC) workshops, have served as a platform for researchers
> interested in building and working with web-derived corpora. Past
> workshops have been co-located with EACL, NAACL, LREC, WWW, and Corpus
> Linguistics.

> This year we are excited to be collocated with Electronic lexicography in

> FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
>
> As in previous years, the 10th Web as Corpus workshop (WAC-10) invites
> original contributions pertaining to all aspects of web corpora, including
> data collection, cleaning, duplicate removal, document filtering,
> linguistic post-processing and annotation, and the use of web corpora in
> language technology and linguistics. Because of its co-location with a
> lexicography conference, WAC-10 particularly encourages submissions
> related to the use of web corpora in lexicography.
>
> A major challenge in the construction of web corpora is the question of
> the quality and the evaluation of both the software used in the
> construction of web corpora as well as the corpora themselves. WAC10
> encourages submissions related to these issues.

> SUBMISSION FORMAT
>
> All submissions should follow the ACL-IJCNLP 2015 style guidelines and
> must be in PDF format.
>
> Full paper submissions may consist of up to eight (8) pages of content
> plus any number of pages consisting of only references. Short papers may
> consist of up to four (4) pages of content plus any number of pages
> consisting of only references. Full papers will be distinguished from
> short papers in the proceedings.
>
> Papers will be presented either orally or as posters at the workshop.
> There will be no distinction between papers presented orally and those
> presented as posters in the proceedings.
>
> Reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not
> include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references
> that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith,
> 1991) ...", must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith (1991)
> previously showed ...". Papers not conforming to these requirements will
> be rejected without review.
>
> We strongly recommend the use of the ACL-IJCNLP 2015 LaTeX style files or
> Microsoft Word Style files. The style files and example documents will be
> available from the workshop website. We reserve the right to reject
> submissions that do not conform to these styles including font and page
