Computational Linguistics - Applications (CLA'10) --

(within 2010 International Multiconference on Computer Science and
Information Technology (IMCSIT) --

October 18-20, 2010
Hotel Golebiewski, Wisla, Poland


The CLA Workshop is located within the framework of the IMCSIT
conference to create a dialog between researchers and practitioners
involved in Computational Linguistics and related areas of Information

IMSCIT is a multi-disciplinary conference gathering scientists form
the different fields of IT & Computer Science together with
representatives of industry and end-users. IMSCIT with its motto: "new
ideas are born not inside peoples' heads but in the space between
them", quickly became a unique place to share thoughts and ideas.

Workshop Goals

The Computational Linguistics - Applications Workshop was established
in 2008 in response to the fast-paced progress in the area.

Traditionally, computational linguistics was limited to the scientists
specialized in the processing of a natural language by computers.
Scientific approaches and practical techniques come from linguistics,
computer science, psychology, and mathematics. Nowadays, there is a
number of practical applications available. These applications are
sometimes developed by smart yet NLP-untrained developers who solve
the problems using sophisticated heuristics. CLA aims to be a meeting
place for both parties in order to share views and ideas. It will help
scientist to better understand real world needs and practitioners not
to reinvent the wheel.

Computational Linguistics needs to be applied to make the full use of
the Internet. There is a definite need for software that can handle
unstructured text and information to allow search for information on
the web. The priority aim of the research in this area is to enable
users to communicate with the computer in their native language.

CLA'10 Workshop is a place where the parties meet to exchange views
and ideas with a benefit to all involved. The Workshop will focus on
practical outcome of modeling human language use and the applications
needed to improve human-machine interaction.

Paper Topics

This call is for papers that present research and practical
developments on all aspects of Natural Language Processing used in
real-life applications, such as (this list is not exhaustive):

* ambiguity resolution
* anaphora resolution
* applied CL software and systems
* computational morphology
* computational phonology
* corpus annotation and corpus-based language modeling
* creation of lexical resources
* dialogue systems
* entity recognition
* extraction of linguistic knowledge from text corpora
* information retrieval and information extraction
* machine learning methods applied to language processing
* machine translation and translation aids
* multi-lingual dialogue systems
* ontology and taxonomy evaluation
* opinion mining and sentiment classification
* paraphrasing and entailment
* parsing issues
* parts-of-speech tagging
* proofing tools
* prosody in dialogues
* question answering
* semantic networks and ontologies
* semantic role labeling
* semantic web
* speech recognition and generation
* summarization
* text classification
* text summarization
* word sense disambiguation

Paper Presentation

The presentation of the paper has to include a demonstration of an
existing tool. The papers should include a section describing the tool
(or a prototype), which demonstrates the theory discussed in the

The presentation is divided into two parts. First, the author(s)
shortly demonstrate their tools to the audience. In the second part,
the authors discuss their work with other participants and let the
audience test their software.

Papers will be evaluated and accepted on the basis of their technical
merit, usefulness of the real life application and relevance to the
workshop scope by the CLA'10 Program Committee. The paper will be
assessed by academics as well as industry representatives in order to
assure fair and balanced assessment.

All accepted and presented papers will be published in the Conference
Proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore(r) database. The best
demonstrations will be selected to be shown to the general audience of
the conference at a plenary session.
