First, a reminder of the upcoming August 1 submission deadline for SCiL 2019, held Jan. 3-6 in New York and Paris. We are accepting both abstracts and papers - full details are here, and included below: http://blogs.umass.edu/scil/scil-2019/call-2019/.
Second, we are now soliciting expressions of interest from potential organizers for SCiL 2020, to be held in conjunction with the LSA in New Orleans, and also from anyone interested in organizing a second site. At the business meeting at SCiL 2019, we will have a discussion of whether to continue with co-location with the LSA, choose organizers for 2021, and we will also establish a more formal organizational structure for the society. Getting 2020 set up now rather than at that business meeting will give the organizers enough time to plan, especially for securing funding. We very much hope that there will be interest in taking this on.
All the best, Gaja Jarosz and Joe Pater.
SCiL 2019 Call for Papers http://blogs.umass.edu/scil/scil-2019/call-2019/
The Society for Computation in Linguistics invites submissions to its second meeting, SCiL 2019, which will be co-located with LSA 2019 in New York City, January 3-6. The invited speakers, Gaja Jarosz (University of Massachusetts Amherst) and Mark Johnson (Macquarie University) will present talks on the theme “Learning Hidden Linguistic Structure”.
Update: There will also be a Paris site for SCiL, at the Laboratoire de linguistique formelle at l’université Paris 7 Diderot (Contact Olivier Bonami: olivier.bonami at linguist.univ-paris-diderot.fr). Some or all of the two meetings will be held jointly via video conferencing. Submissions to both sites follow the same procedure below. On the form there is a question that asks about site preference.
We seek high-quality research on computational and mathematical approaches in any area of linguistics. There will be two submission tracks: papers and abstracts. Accepted papers and abstracts will be presented (either orally or as posters) at the SCiL 2019 meeting. Papers will be published prior to the conference in the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) Anthology. Authors of accepted abstracts will have the option to submit extended abstracts prior to the conference. Both papers and extended abstracts will be published online in the open-access SCiL proceedings.
Submissions are limited to one first-authored paper or abstract per author; there is no limit on the number of non-first authored submissions per author. Do not submit an abstract to both SCiL and the LSA – these meetings are being held jointly, and your submission will be returned without review.
Submission Deadline (papers and abstracts): August 1, 2018 Notification of Acceptance: mid-September, 2018 Camera Ready Papers and Abstracts Due: November 1, 2018 Conference: January 3-6, 2019
Papers (8pp) and abstracts (2pp) are due August 1 2018 by 11:59pm pacific time. Papers and abstracts must be anonymous and prepared in PDF format according to the following guidelines.
Abstract submissions must describe original and completed work. To facilitate exchange of research ideas across disciplines, this track will consider work that has been previously presented (and potentially published) at venues with distinct scope and target audiences from SCiL. Submissions describing previously presented/published work must indicate so at submission time.
Abstract length is limited to a maximum of two single-spaced pages (US Letter), figures and references included. The abstract should follow the two-column ACL format OR the following guidelines. Font should be 12-point Times or Times New Roman throughout, and the document should be single-spaced, left justified, with margins of exactly one inch on all sides. Title and section headings (if used) should be bold.
Accepted abstracts will be presented at SCiL 2019 as posters or oral presentations. Authors of accepted abstracts will have the option to extend abstracts up to 4 pages (extended abstracts). The extended abstracts should follow the two-column ACL format. Abstracts and extended abstracts will be published before the conference in the forthcoming open-access SCiL Proceedings.
