Call for Papers

SIGDAT, the Association for Computational Linguistics' special interest group on linguistic data and corpus-based approaches to NLP, invites submissions to EMNLP 2006, which immediately follows COLING-ACL 2006.

We are interested in papers from academia, government, and industry on all areas of traditional interest to the SIGDAT community and aligned fields, including but not limited to:

- information extraction
- information retrieval
- language and dialogue modeling
- lexical acquisition
- machine translation
- multilingual technologies
- question answering
- statistical parsing
- summarization
- generation
- speech recognition and synthesis
- dialog and discourse processing
- tagging
- term and named entity extraction
- word sense disambiguation
- word, term, and text segmentation
- general NLP-related machine learning techniques: theory, methods and algorithms

Special Theme:
Crossing Boundaries: Interdisciplinarity in Data and Methods

For this year's theme we encourage submissions that reach out to other disciplines, whether in MODELS AND METHODS or DOMAINS AND DATA.  In the past NLP has often drawn on other fields for new models,  methods, and mathematical insights.  We encourage submissions to extend this history, both from closely related fields (computer vision, signal processing) or ones at a distance (quantum mechanics, statistical physics).  Other fields can also be a source of new kinds of data and new problems, including domains that have received a lot of attention (gene  sequencing,  medical informatics) or less attention (sociology, political science, forensic science,  the humanities).  We encourage any submission that tries to build bridges to other disciplines; samples of the many possible areas include:

- computer vision (joint analysis of text and images for multimodal aoplications)
- medical informatics and bioinformatics
- political science (analysis of polling data, surveys, or blogs)
- sociology (network theory and analysis, interpersonal relationships        such as job interviews)
-social psychology (detection of emotional state, lie detection,                social attitudes, accent or dialect)
- physics (quantum mechanics, statistical physics)
- humanities (authorship identification, genre and style)
- educational applications


Submissions should take the form of full papers (up to 8 pages in two-column format) describing original, unpublished work.  Papers being submitted to other meetings must provide this information on the title page.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
