Meeting Description:

The 26th Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation (PACLIC 26) will be held in Bali on November 8-10, 2012, organized by the Faculty of Computer Science, Universitas Indonesia. The PACLIC series of conferences emphasize the synergy of theoretical analysis and processing of language, and provides a forum for researchers in different fields of language study in the Pacific-Asia region to share their findings and interests in the formal and empirical study of languages. Organized under the auspices of the PACLIC Steering Committee, PACLIC 26 will be the latest installment of our long standing collaborative efforts among theoretical and computational linguists in the Pacific-Asia region.

The conference this year marks a special moment as it will be the 25th anniversary of the PACLIC conference series, and a special commemorative event is being planned and organized. 

Call for Papers:

Paper submissions of original and unpublished research are invited on all aspects of both theoretical and computational linguistics. Topics include but are not limited to: morphology, phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, typology, corpus linguistics, formal grammar theory, language acquisition and language learning, human and machine language processing, language resources and language technology and possible applications of those research areas. Papers exemplifying synergy of multi-disciplinary approaches on the construction of language resources and system development that would assist language learning are particularly encouraged. Among the various research topics that may be addressed, one or more of the following issues may be included, to further mutual advancement among studies on language, information and computation: 

- How formal linguistic analyses can and has informed language technology in advancing the development of language processing applications.

- What light theoretical linguistics has shed on the information demand of natural language processing, and how it has led to large-scale machine-usable language resources.

- How collections of learner language resources may improve learning, teaching and testing of native and non-native languages.

- What insights cognitive science, psycholinguistic research and brain imaging technology have brought about regarding the nature of language and language learning/acquisition.

- What is the limit of pure computational methods like machine learning in language processing? What roles do related disciplines such as cognitive science and psycholinguistics have to play in bridging the gap between human and computer language processing?

- How multilingual data and multilingual speakers can inform our analysis of language, from both the theoretical and practical points of view.

Submissions should describe substantial, original, and unpublished work. Papers should be written in readable and plain English and may not exceed ten (10) A4 size pages, including references. Submissions will be judged based on reviewer scores for relevance to the conference, clarity and readability, originality of approach proposed, technical and theoretical soundness, adequacy of reference and discussion of previous study, and interest to the attendees. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members and/or additional reviewers. As the reviewing process will be anonymous, manuscripts must not include the authors' names and affiliations and authors should be careful not to reveal their identities in the paper. Papers that do not conform to these requirements may be rejected without review. 

Accepted papers will be presented in one of the regular sessions or interactive & poster sessions as determined by the program committee. Such decisions will be based on the nature rather than on the quality of the work submitted. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings volume, which will subsequently be digitally archived and also sent to ISI/Thomson Reuters for indexing. Please refer to the PACLIC Steering Committee website for details. 

Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=paclic26. The deadline for paper submissions is June 25 (Monday), 2012. Submission instructions for authors and manuscript templates are available from the conference website. 

Important Dates:

Submission deadline: 25 June 2012
Notification of acceptance: 30 July 2012
Early author registration: 31 August 2012
Camera-ready submission: 31 August 2012
Conference schedule: 8-10 November 2012
