IceTAL 2010 - 7th International Conference on Natural Language
Processing - will take place on August 16-18, 2010, in Reykjavik,
Iceland. The conference is organized by the Iceland Centre for
Language Technology (ICLT) and will be held at the new premises of
Reykjavik University.  IceTAL is the seventh in the series of the TAL
conferences, following GoTAL 2008 (Gothenburg, Sweden), FinTAL 2006
(Turku, Finland), EsTAL 2004 (Alicante, Spain), PorTAL 2002 (Faro,
Portugal), VexTAL 1999 (Venice, Italy) and FracTAL 1997 (Besançon,
The main purpose of the TAL conference series is to bring together
scientists representing linguistics, computer science and related
fields, sharing a common interest in the advancement of computational
linguistics and natural language processing (NLP).

Papers are invited on recent, substantial, original and unpublished
research on all aspects of computational linguistics and natural
language and speech processing, including, but not limited to:

* phonetics, phonology, and morphology
* speech recognition and speech synthesis
* word segmentation, tagging, and chunking
* syntax, parsing, and grammar formalisms
* lexical semantics and word sense disambiguation
* pragmatics, discourse, and dialogue
* lexicon, lexical databases, and ontologies
* generation and summarization
* information retrieval, question answering, and information
* machine translation, translation aids, and multilingual systems
* dialogue systems and multimodal systems
* language resources and tools
* linguistic, psychological, and mathematical models of language
* corpus linguistics
* corpus-based language modeling
* language learning and therapy
* simulation and visualization
* knowledge acquisition and representation
* text and speech interfaces
* text and speech classification
* systems evaluation

There will be two keynote speakers:
* Jan Hajic, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic
* Christiane D. Fellbaum, Princeton University, Princeton, USA


We welcome submissions both from academia and the industry on any
topic that is of interest to the NLP community, particularly
encouraging research emphasizing multidisciplinary aspects of NLP and
the interplay between linguistics, computer science and application
domains such as biomedicine, communication systems, public services,
and educational technology.

Submitted papers should describe original work, emphasizing completed
or well advanced, rather than intended, research. The state of
completion of the reported work must be clearly indicated. Where
appropriate, results should be rigorously evaluated; the assessment of
statistical significance for quantitative results is
encouraged. Submissions should contain original material that has not
been previously presented to the scientific community. A parallel
submission to other publication fora as well as a significant overlap
in contents with previously published work should be clearly indicated
to the program committee.

All submissions will be reviewed by at least three program committee
members. The submissions will be judged on originality, relevance,
technical quality, and presentation. Papers can be submitted in two

* Full papers, describing substantial research with well-evaluated
* Short papers, typically describing ongoing research and preliminary

At the conference, full papers will be presented as a talk and short
papers will be presented as a poster.
Further information regarding paper submission can be found at

All accepted papers in both categories will be published in the
conference proceedings. The proceedings will be published by Springer
Publishers as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science/Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI) series.
