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 instalment 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.

Paper submissions of original and unpublished research are invited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


* How formal linguistic analyses can and has informed language

technology in advancing the development of language processing


* 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) 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 web site for


Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair at

The deadline for paper submissions has been extended to July 9, 2012. Submission

instructions for authors and manuscript templates are available from

the conference website.
