Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; General Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 23-Nov-2009 

Meeting Description:

Special tracks, held in parallel with the general conference, are an integral part of the FLAIRS conference. They provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to meet and present their work, and offer a forum for interaction among the broader community of artificial intelligence researchers. Topics of interest are in all areas of artificial intelligence and linguistics as they relate to AI.

The 23rd Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society Conference (FLAIRS-23) will be held May 19-21, 2010 in Daytona Beach, Florida, USA. FLAIRS-23 continues a tradition of presenting and discussing artificial intelligence research in a convivial atmosphere within a beautiful setting. Events will include invited speakers, special tracks, discussion panels, and presentations of papers and posters. 

What is ANLP?

The amount of information that humans have gathered and made available to other humans is, of course, phenomenal. And however large this repository of knowledge is, we know that by this time tomorrow, it will larger still. But perhaps what is most important about this information is that most of it appears in textual form; and that if we are ever to manage it, understand it, assess it, evaluate it, summarize it, or even find it; then a broad range of natural language processing tools, systems, algorithms, models, theories, and techniques will have to be applied to it. Applied Natural Language Processing (ANLP) is dedicated to this venture.

What is the GOAL of the track?

The goal of the ANLP track is to inform researchers as to current project and studies that identify, investigate, and (begin to) resolve issues that relate to human/computer language interaction.

Who might be interested?

The track of Applied Natural Language Processing is a forum for researchers working in natural language processing (NLP), computational linguistics (CL), linguistics, cognitive science, AI, and related areas. 

Call for Papers:

Paper submission deadline: Monday, November 23rd, 2009.

FLAIRS encourages student authors to submit papers. In addition to a Best Paper award, there will be a Best Student Paper award for the best paper written primarily by students.

All accepted papers will be published as FLAIRS proceedings by the AAAI. Leading papers will also be considered for publication as chapters in forthcoming book Applied Natural Language Processing and Content Analysis: Advances in Identification, Investigation, and Resolution.

Note: We invite original papers (i.e. work not previously submitted, in submission, or to be submitted to another conference during the reviewing process). 

Submission Guidelines for the ANLP Track:

Interested authors (for the general ANLP track or the special topic) should format their papers according to AAAI formatting guidelines. The papers should be original work (i.e., not submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference while in review). Papers should not exceed 6 pages (2 pages for a poster) and are due by November 23rd, 2009. For FLAIRS-23, the 2010 conference, the reviewing is a double blind process. Fake author names and affiliations must be used on submitted papers to provide double-blind reviewing. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system, which can be accessed through the main conference web site (http://www.FLAIRS-23.info). Note, do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers. Authors should indicate the special track of ANLP for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. An author of each accepted paper is required to register, attend, and present the paper at FLAIRS.
