ACL/SIGPARSE will host the 11th International Conference on Parsing
Technologies (IWPT'09) on October 7 - 9, 2009 in Paris, France, at
the University of Paris 7.

IWPT'09 continues the tradition of biennial workshops on parsing
technology organized by SIGPARSE, the Special Interest Group on
Parsing of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). The
first workshop, in Pittsburgh and Hidden Valley, was followed by
workshops in Cancun (Mexico) in 1991; Tilburg (Netherlands) and Durbuy
(Belgium) in 1993; Prague and Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic) in 1995;
Boston/Cambridge (Massachusetts) in 1997; Trento (Italy) in 2000;
Beijing (China) in 2001; in Nancy (France) in 2003; in Vancouver
(Canada) (2005); and in Prague (Czech Republic) in 2007.

Topics of interest for IWPT'09
Topics of interest for IWPT'09 include, but are not limited to:

Theoretical and practical studies of parsing and transduction
algorithms for natural language sentences, texts, fragments,
dialogues, ill-formed sentences, speech input, multi-dimensional
(pictorial) or signed languages, multimedia (web) documents; parsing
issues arising or viewed in a multimodal and multilingual context;
parsing in relation to semantic and pragmatic information and
communication; cognitive aspects of grammar and their impact on
Knowledge-based and data-driven approaches are equally welcome.

Time schedule:
Deadline for full paper submission: 29 May, 2009 (passed)
Full papers notification of acceptance: 1 July, 2009
Deadline for short paper submission: 8 July, 2009
Short papers notification of acceptance: 15 July, 2009
Final papers due: 15 August, 2009
Conference: 7 - 9 October, 2009

Submitting Papers
Two types of submissions are invited:
- full papers (submission deadline passed)
- short papers, to be presented at the conference in the form of a
short oral presentation plus a poster; four-page summaries will be
published in the conference proceedings.

Full papers should be concerned with completed work or intermediate
results of ongoing work, rather than with intended work.
Short papers may also describe planned or starting research or
untested ideas.

The reviewing of the papers will be blind. The paper should not
include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore,
self-citations and other references (e.g. to projects, corpora, or
software) that could reveal the author's identity should be
avoided. For example, instead of "We previously showed (Smith, 1991)
...", write "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...".

Instructions for authors
Prospective authors are invited to send their submissions
through the electronic submission page of the conference. The only
accepted format for submitted papers is PDF. Full papers should not
exceed 12 pages; short papers should not exceed 4 pages.

Detailed formatting and submission instructions for authors are
available through the IWPT'09 home page at:

For all inquiries send mail to or to
