GoTAL: First Call for Papers

GoTAL - 6th International Conference on Natural Language Processing

Gothenburg, Sweden

25-27 August 2008


The GoTAL conference will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden on 25-27 August, 2008.

The conference is hosted by

Chalmers University of Technology jointly with

Gothenburg University, as part of the activities of

the Centre for Language Technology (CLT).

GoTAL is the sixth in the series of the TAL conferences, following

FracTAL (Besançon, France, 1997),

VexTAL (Venice, Italy, 1999),

PorTAL (Faro, Algarve, Portugal, 2002),

EsTAL (Alicante, Spain, 2004), and

FinTAL (Turku, Finland 2006).

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.


Papers are invited on recent, substantial, original and unpublished research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:

- Pragmatics, Discourse, Semantics, Syntax, and the Lexicon

- Phonetics, Phonology, and Morphology

- Speech Recognition

- Speech Synthesis

- Natural Language Generation

- Ontologies, Semantic Networks, and Lexical Resources

- Corpus Linguistics

- Linguistic, Mathematical, and Psychological Models of Language

- Anaphora Resolution

- Word Sense Disambiguation

- Corpus-based Language Modeling

- Machine Translation and Translation Aids

- Text and Speech Interfaces

- Dialogue systems

- Language Learning and Therapy

- Simulation and Visualization

- Knowledge Acquisition and Representation

- Information Extraction

- Information Retrieval

- Question Answering

- Text Summarization

- Text and Speech Classification

- Systems Evaluation


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 categories:

- **full papers**, describing substantial research with well-evaluated results

- **short papers**, typically describing ongoing research and preliminary results

All accepted papers in both categories will be published in the conference

proceedings. At the conference, full papers will be presented as a talk

and short papers will be presented as a poster.

Submissions will be made using EasyChair. The URL will be given here as soon

as the GoTAL submission service opens (in January). Also the lengths and styles

of submissions will be specified then.


The previous three TAL conferences had proceedings published in LNCS/LNAI.

For GoTAL, this has not yet been confirmed (as of 20 December 2007).
