Call for Papers
The 6th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing
(IJCNLP 2013) October 14-18, 2013 Nagoya, Japan

The 6th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing,
organized by the Asian Federation of Natural Language Processing, will
be held in Nagoya, Japan during the period October 14-18, 2013. The
conference will cover a broad range of technical areas related to the
computational treatment of natural language. IJCNLP 2013 will feature
regular papers, short papers, poster papers, demonstrations, tutorials,
and workshops.

IJCNLP 2013 invites submissions of papers reporting original and
unpublished research on all aspects of language processing and
computational linguistics, including, but not limited to, the following:
Phonology; Morphology; Syntax; Semantics; Pragmatics; Discourse; Dialog;
Corpora; Dictionaries; Ontologies; Language resources for minority
languages; Statistical and machine learning approaches; Finite-State
Technology; Language models; POS tagging; Parsing; Semantic role
labeling; Word-sense disambiguation; Anaphora and coreference
resolution; Natural language generation; Speech processing; Dialog
systems; Machine translation; Information retrieval; Information
extraction; Named Entity Recognition; Text summarization; Question
answering; Text mining; Opinion mining and sentiment analysis; NLP for
medical applications; NLP for educational applications; Text
accessibility; Plagiarism detection; Author identification; Spam

Important Dates
May 17, 2013 (11:59pm Pacific Standard Time): Regular paper/short
     paper/poster paper submission due
May 24, 2013 (11:59pm Pacific Standard Time): Demo paper submission due
July 8, 2013: Regular paper/short paper/poster paper/demo paper
     notification of acceptance due
August 9, 2013: Camera-ready versions due
Main conference period: October 15-17, 2013

Submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and
unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis
should be included. Submissions will be judged on correctness,
originality, technical strength, significance, relevance to the
conference, and interest to the attendees. Each submission will be
reviewed by at least three reviewers.

There will be three categories of papers:

a. Regular papers: their length will be up to 8 pages plus 1 additional
   page for references or appendices if needed/applicable; in the
   conference program these papers will have a slot of 25 minutes
   allocated (20 min presentation + 5 minutes questions and answers)

b. Short papers: their length will be up to 6 pages plus 1 additional
   page for references or appendices if needed/applicable; in the
   program these papers will have a slot of 20 minutes (15 min
   presentation + 5 minutes questions and answers)

c. Poster papers: their length will be up to 4 pages plus 1 additional
   page for references or appendices if needed/applicable; in the
   program these will be presented at poster sessions.

All accepted papers will have equal status in the proceedings.

Authors will decide whether their papers are regular, short or posters
depending on their length. Authors will also decide to which which
area/track they are submitting (the START system will be configured to
allow selection of areas).

Paper submissions should follow the two-column format of IJCNLP,
conforming to the LaTeX or Microsoft Word style available on the
conference website and conforming to the instructions to authors found
there. Submissions must be electronic in PDF through the START
conference system at:

As the reviewing will be blind, the paper must not include the authors'
names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the
author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", must
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.

Multiple-submission policy
Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or
publications must provide this information at submission time. If IJCNLP
2013 accepts a paper, authors must notify the program chairs by August
5, indicating which meeting they choose for presentation of their
work. IJCNLP 2013 cannot accept for publication or presentation work
that will be (or has been) published elsewhere.

Call for Demonstrations

The 6th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing
(IJCNLP 2013) October 14-18, 2013 Nagoya, Japan

The IJCNLP 2013 Demonstration Committee invites proposals for the
Demonstrations Program. We encourage both the submission of early
research prototypes and interesting mature systems. We also welcome demo
proposals related to submissions to the main conference. Commercial
sales and marketing activities however are inappropriate for the

1. Areas of Interest

Areas of interest include all topics related to theoretical and applied
computational linguistics, such as (but not limited to) the topics
listed for in the conference call for papers submission.

The systems may be of the following kinds
- Natural Language Processing systems or system components
- Application systems using language technology components
- Software tools for computational linguistics research
- Software for demonstration or evaluation
- Development and annotation tools

2. Submission Format

Demo proposals consist of the following parts.
- An extended abstract of the technical content to be demonstrated,
  including title, authors, full contact information, references, and
- A "script outline" of the demo presentation, including accompanying
  narrative, and either a Web address for accessing the demo or visual
  aids (e.g., screenshots, snapshots, or diagrams).
- A detailed description of the hardware, software and internet service
  requirements expected to be provided by the local organizer. See Demo
  Equipment for more details.

Please use the IJCNLP submission format
( for Microsoft
Word and LaTeX for preparing your proposal. The entire proposal should
not be more than four pages.

3. Submissions Procedure

The deadline for proposals is May 24, 2013 (11:59pm Pacific Standard
Time). Submission will be electronic in PDF format through the START
conference system at:
(Please do not send the submission to Demo Co-Chairs by email.)

Each submission will be evaluated on the basis of their relevance to
computational linguistics, innovation, scientific contribution,
presentation, as well as potential logistical constraints. Accepted
submissions will be allocated maximum four pages in the Companion Volume
to the Proceedings of the Conference.

4. Demo Equipment

Each demo will be provided with an internet connection, two power
sockets (AC 100V, Max 500W for each socket). See for more information about the
electricity in Japan.), a table and a poster board (90cm x 180cm). PCs
and other devices such as LCD panels must be prepared and brought to the
venue by demonstrators. Note that projectors may not be feasible because
of limitation of space and lighting.

5. Important Dates

May 24, 2013 (11:59pm Pacific Standard Time): Demo proposal submission
due July 8, 2013: Demo proposal acceptance notification August 9, 2013:
Demo paper camera-ready version due October 15-17: Conference
