                      Computational Linguistics

                         April 3rd - 7th 2006

          * * * Submission deadline: November 8, 2005 * * *

The European Association of Computational Linguistics invites the
submission of papers for its 11th Meeting. Papers are invited on
substantial, original, and unpublished research on all aspects of
computational linguistics, including, but not limited to:

- phonetics, phonology and morphology;
- word segmentation, tagging and chunking;
- syntax, semantics and grammars;
- pragmatics, discourse and dialogue;
- the lexicon and ontologies;
- parsing and grammatical formalisms;
- generation, text planning and summarization;
- language modeling, spoken language recognition and understanding;
- mathematical models of language;
- information retrieval, text categorisation, question answering, and
information extraction;
- paraphrasing and textual entailment;
- machine learning for natural language;
- multi-lingual processing, machine translation and translation aids;
- multi-modal and natural language interfaces and dialogue systems;
- language-oriented applications, tools and resources;
- evaluation methodology.


Papers should describe original work; they should emphasize completed
work rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state
of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete
evaluation results should be included. Submissions will be judged on
correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and
relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees.

A paper accepted for presentation at the EACL Meeting, including
EACL-related workshops, cannot be presented or have been presented at
any other meeting with publicly available published proceedings.
Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or workshops must
indicate this on the submission page.


The reviewing of the papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed
by an international Conference Program Committee consisting of Area
Chairs and a team of reviewers. Final decisions on the technical
program will be made by the Conference Program Committee.

Submission Information

Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and
should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly
recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style
files tailored for this year's conference. They will be available at A description of the format will
also be available in case you are unable to use these style files
directly. Papers must conform to the official EACL-06 style
guidelines, and we reserve the right to reject submissions that do not
conform to these styles including font size restrictions.  Submissions
should be in PDF format and must include all fonts, so that the paper
will print (not just view) anywhere.

As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors'
names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the
author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...",
should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously
showed (Smith, 1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to these
requirements will be rejected without review.

Submission will be electronic using the paper submission software to
be made available at The papers
must be submitted no later than 11:59pm (23:59) GMT November 8th, 2005.
Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed.
