                            First Call For Papers
                              September 11-14, 2001
                  Kitakyushu International Conference Center
                               Kitakyushu, Japan

History and Aims

   PACLING(Pacific Association for Computational Linguistics)has grown
out of the very successful Japan-Australia joint symposia on natural
language processing held in November 1989 in Melbourne, Australia
and in October in Iizuka, Japan in 1991. The following four meetings
of the retitled PACLING, a name designed to express the wider
membership, took place in Vancouver, Canada in 1993, Brisbane,
Australia in 1995, Ohme, Japan in1997 and Waterloo, Canada in 1999.

   PACLING '01 will be a low-profile, high-quality, workshop-oriented
meeting whose aim is to promote friendly scientific relations among Pacific
Rim countries, with emphasis on interdisciplinary scientific exchange
showing openness towards good research falling outside current dominant
 "schools of thought, " and on technological transfer within the Pacific
region. The conference is a unique forum for scientific and technological
exchange, being small than ACL, COLING, or Applied NLP, and also more
regional with extensive representation from the Pacific.


Original papers are invited on any topic in computational linguistics (and
strongly related areas) including (but not limited to) the following:

   phonology, phonetics, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics,
dialogues, spoken languages, corpora, text and message understanding
and generation, language translation and translation aids, language
learning and learning aids, question-answering systems, interfaces to
(multimedia) databases language and input/output devides, natural-
language-based software, information retrieval using natural language
interface, and statistical methods for large corpora.

Submission of Papers

Authors should prepare extended abstracts, in English, not more than
6 pages including figures and tables using standard fonts of 11 points
or bigger one. It should include author's name, postal address, e-mail
address (if possible), telehone and facsimile numbers; a brief 100-200
word summary; and some key words for classifying the submission.

  Papers that are being submitted to other conferences, whether
verbatim or in essence, must reflect this fact after key words. If a
paper appears at another conference, it must be withdrawn from
PACLING'01. Papers that violate these requirements are subject to
rejection without review.

 Please send four copies of each submission to one of the following
two addresses. Sending by email is also accepted(we will request the
author to send copies when the email submitted is not completely
visualized because of word processor problems or language font
