Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing - FSMNLP 2013
11th International Conference

University of St Andrews, Scotland (UK), July 15-17, 2013


The international conference series Finite-State Methods and Natural
Language Processing (FSMNLP) is the premier forum of the ACL Special
Interest Group on Finite-State Methods (SIGFSM). It serves researchers
and practitioners working on:

   * natural language processing (NLP) applications or language
   * theoretical and implementational aspects, or
   * their combinations

that have obvious relevance or an explicit relation to finite-state


   * Bill Byrne (University of Cambridge)
   * Alexander Clark (King's College London)


The conference invites papers related to themes including but not
limited to:

   * NLP applications and linguistic aspects of finite-state methods
   * Finite-state models of language
   * Practices for building morphological models for the world's
     languages using finite-state technology
   * Machine learning of finite-state models of natural language
   * Finite-state manipulation software and tools with relevance to NLP


   * April 12, paper submission deadline
   * May 21, notification
   * June 15, camera-ready version


Papers should present original, unpublished research and implementation
results. Simultaneous submission to other venues with published
proceedings is prohibited. FSMNLP accepts two kinds of submissions:

   * long papers (8 pages including references) reporting completed,
     significant research,

   * short papers (4 pages including references) reporting ongoing work
     and partial results, implementations, grammars, practical tools,
     interactive software demos, etc.

Short papers are expected to be presented as system demos in demo
sessions, posters and/or short presentations, while long papers are
presented in longer presentations.

All submissions are electronic and in PDF format via a web-based
submission server. Authors are strongly encouraged to use the ACL 2013
style (either LaTeX or Word) in producing the PDF document, available

Information about the author(s) and other identifying information such
as obvious self-references (e.g., "We showed in [12] ...") and financial
or personal acknowledgements should be omitted in the submitted papers
whenever feasible.

Papers will be submitted electronically in PDF using the EasyChair
system.  A paper may contain a clearly marked appendix and data files to
support its claims. This material will not be published. While reviewers
are urged to consult this extra material for better comprehension, it is
at their discretion whether they do so. Such extra material should also
be anonymized to the extent feasible.

Use the following link for submission:

All accepted papers will be published in FSMNLP 2013 proceedings and
archived in the ACL Anthology. The publication of selected, revised
versions of accepted papers in a special journal issue is planned.
